THERE'S NO CRYING IN PHOTOSHOP
Who doesn't love a good friendly competition in Photoshop? We certainly do!
At PRO EDU we host what we call the "Community Assignment" which gives the same assignment to anyone who desires to enter to create an original piece of art based on the rules, which can often be vague.
It is up to you to take that assignment, interpret it, and submit your best work.
All of the work that is entered that meets the criteria will be judged by a panel of judges at PRO EDU including staff, instructors, and artists. The winner will be chosen by a silent vote with the most points.

Many of our students see a benefit or a payoff in their first shoot. This could be in the form of an increase in a day rate, booking more days, a higher sales price for their prints, or a higher quality of work. Success comes in many forms and is measured differently. You have to ask yourself, how much does it cost you NOT to have access to information that will make your life easier and more profitable? When you set out to learn something new every day and keep an open mind about learning from others, your pathway to success becomes a highway to happiness.
No one is too busy for bite-sized learning! We realize that learning takes time, so we encourage our users to download the mobile app and make a playlist for on-the-go opportunities. We also encourage our users to schedule a time for deep learning without any distractions and take notes to ensure that they are genuinely absorbing the content.
You can learn anything on YouTube; we love it as well! The biggest question you need to ask is whether you want to do all of the searching it takes to find ENOUGH quality content you need. How valuable is your time, and how much do you want to waste? On top of this, how much do you like the platform? Can you download YouTube content and watch it offline? Does it come with downloads? Do you want to sit through all of the noise and distractions of YouTube? Do you have access to ask questions? YouTube is designed to sell ads, whereas PRO EDU is designed to unlock the secrets of success. We aren't paid by camera companies trying to sell you cameras and new shiny things. We make education to help others grow and advance in their career genuinely. PRO EDU has a customer service team working seven days a week and an online community of artists to help give feedback and answer questions about workflows and growth hacks.
