CreativeLive is like a university for enterprising creators. It offers in-depth video courses to elevate your craft – whether you’re into photography or lithography, metal-smithing or heavy-metal music.
Instructors are heavy hitters in their respective fields. Gimlet Media co-founder Alex Blumberg teaches how to “Power Your Podcast with Storytelling”. Bestselling self-help author Tim Ferriss has a 16-part course on becoming “healthy, wealthy, and wise”.
CreativeLive classes meet you at your level, wherever that may be. Do you have years of experience and want to dive into the nuances of lighting in commercial photography? There’s an 80-minute course for you. Still learning the basic rule of thirds? Enroll in a class on snapping better iPhone pics.
The app helps you develop more than your skills; you’ll also learn how to market and monetise them. Turn to the Money & Life section for tips on launching an Etsy shop, starting a wedding-photography business or building your brand.
Most of the courses are available for purchase, which gives you lifetime access to them. If you’d prefer to start with one of the many free courses, we suggest “30 Days of Genius,” in which CreativeLive founder Chase Jarvis interviews a wildly diverse roster of guests – from Richard Branson to Sir Mix-A-Lot.
