As COVID-19 forces many of us inside, some companies are taking this unique opportunity to let us all improve ourselves – and at their expense!
Normally expensive photography courses from Nikon are currently going for the low, low price of free, and industry competitors Leica and Olympus took notice. Now they’re giving away online courses as well and we all benefit in the end.
If you haven’t had a chance to check some of these out, now might be the time.
So what have we got here?
Leica’s campaign is called the #StayHomeWithLeica campaign and will consist of area-specific tutorials and consultations as well as more broad concepts. Leica’s press on the campaign reads in part, “Join us for a series of complimentary online programs produced by the Leica Akademie, Instagram Live interviews with renowned photographers, virtual meet-ups hosted by our Leica stores, and weekly Instagram photo challenges designed to nurture your passion for photography.”
Olympus is launching genre-specific courses, FStoppers reports.
