But we also air a free replay of one of our travel writing classes each and every weekday.
Each weekday at 2pm PST / 5pm EST / 10pm GMT / 11pm CET (and 9am AEDT Tues-Sat), we show one webinar from our archives, rotating though all of them over the course of four months.
Here’s what we’ve got for you this week:
Monday, August 19, 5pm EST: The Difference Between the Photos You’re Shooting Now and What Magazines Are Publishing
Learn how to get the shots that editors need so you can get more assignments and make more money with your pieces.
We look at the shots that work online and those that most of us shoot most of the time and what the difference is in terms of the approach to shot format, variety, and composition to generate the types of photos magazines can use.
Tuesday, August 20, 5pm EST: Creating a Shot List to Organize Your Trips Around Saleable Photography
In this webinar, we break down a step-by-step method to organize your trips to ensure you get the shots you need to fill out your stories and enter the (thriving, actually!) world of photo essays.
In this webinar, I show you a couple of cool stylings things I picked up at the International Food Bloggers Conference and and we focus on the concept of the still life and how to take age-old painting techniques into your photography to create amazing shots for Instagram and beyond.
You’ll learn food photography and more, including staging, lighting, and how to create posed shots of everything except people on your trips.
Not all guidebook companies are equal–for the writer, which is very different than in the public perception of the brand–when it comes to pay, treatment, and the writing process.
Discover how to break into the publishing world through guidebook writing.
For the second webinar in our series on how to break into guidebook writing, we continue learning about the guidebook landscape for professional travel writers.
While you may have heard the bad and the ugly about life as a guidebook writer, we dig into the reality of those who have made it their full-time gig.
Don’t be late! All the free replays start right on time, and the system isn’t able to accept late attendees.
