Yes, this entire tutorial is FREE. Zero dollars. And there is NO CATCH. At PRO EDU we believe that CGI is currently one of the best things that you can invest in as a photographer. Regardless of whether you want to become a CGI artist, photographers NEED to know their options to solve problems for their clients.
If you do work at the commercial level or have clients with unusual requests, having a solid understanding of the entire 3D pipeline is VERY important. We actually believe artists must know this to survive in a highly competitive and global landscape. We will be publishing about 10 of these complete builds in 2021 that range from product, portrait, lifestyle, real estate, landscape, and more. Our goal is to show various use cases that demonstrate the importance of the tools that CGI offers.
"I’m a seasoned creative artist, a student who’s spent a whole lot of time learning to learn from failure. Pushing my creative boundaries is a thriving passion of mine and I enjoy helping others do the same. Learning a new skill set can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. I see too many artists quit before starting on a new path, but pushing through that winding path will lead to fruitful creativity. I’m looking forward to using my industry experience as a Composite and CGI artist to help you dive into your new journey. It’s important to never forget that we’re all “forever students” and continuously adapting our toolbox and workflows. Let’s take the dive together and make cool shit!"

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.
