When people ask me about my profession I always tell them the following :
“I’m a photographer but what I love to do most is education”
Over the years this educational part of my photography has been growing into many directions and when looking at it we realized we had something really cool but we needed to bring it all together under one program, and this program has launched in April 2015 under the name “Learning with FrankDoorhof.com”.
The reason we choose for the title learning is very simple.
Learning is something you do for your whole life and in my opinion photography is not something you learn in a few years on school, but it’s a profession where you actually never (ever) stop learning, it doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned pro (that also teaches) or an absolute beginner, there is always something new to learn, for me this is the main attraction to photography.
So what does : Learning with FrankDoorhof.com has to offer?
Over the the years we have created different ways of teaching options, and on this page you can find the links to them, during 2015 you will see that we will bundle them all together a bit more.
1A. Free videos
Via our YouTube channel you can find several videowebpodcasts including “The DOORhof is always open”, “Behind the closed DOORs”, “Digital Classroom” and “Quite Frankly”.
On “The DOORhof is always open” you can find interviews with leading photographers sharing their stories and tips while in “Quite Frankly” and “Digital classroom” you can see my tips ranging from retouching to shooting tips, the only thing is that is has to be photography related.
1B. Full length tutorials
If you like or free videos you’re going to LOVE our full length tutorials, in those videos we go way more indepth into the matter and everything is shown in a very easy to understand way (even the more complicated stuff), on www.frankdoorhof.com/videos you can find all the tutorials.
Teaching workshops is without a doubt where my passion lies.
Every workshop I try to make 100% flexible, meaning we start with an intense Q&A and from this I will build the rest of the workshop making sure all the questions are answered.
The workshops are taught worldwide and from our studio in the Netherlands.
You can find the Dutch agenda (and information about the workshops) on www.photography-workshops.eu
For the special workshops and workshops abroad check out this page.
We understand that you, if you live far away, cannot visit all the workshops there for we launched learning with Frank Patreon. For a small amount a month you become a member of the LWFP facebook group
4. Portfolio review
Everyone needs a good portfolio review now and then, this is the best way to progress in your art and also to pick up some cool new techniques. Every portfolio review contains my opinion on the images and what I would have done differently, but also a full video with a complete retouch process including many tips and tricks for Photoshop, Lightroom or Capture One (I’ll do the review using the software you own so you can do it all yourself after/during watching the video).
5. A year with Frank
The ultimate program to improve your photography and business approach, in a full year you will visit all the workshops in Emmeloord, get assignments, portfolio reviews and much much more.
Visit this page for more information.
6. Digital classroom
A totally new concept that is launched in 2015.
Visit a live photoshoot from our studio in Emmeloord, see everything from makeup, the set, styling, lighting, the shoot and the retouching all LIVE from our studio. With multiple cameras we will show you what goes on during a photoshoot, and the best thing is that you can interact with us, ask questions and talk to our team via FaceBook or YouTube.
