CMpro Breakout Sessions are a unique and affordable opportunity to learn digital photography, processing, business and more directly from amazing professional photographers and highly skilled artists. A cross between a webinar and a workshop, each Breakout Session includes a downloadable set of materials (such as PDFs, videos, and/or actions or presets) as well as access to an interactive online forum to share and discuss the Breakout topic with other registered students. Over the course of the session, students may also submit their questions to a dropbox for the presenter. Toward the end of the Breakout term, those questions are gathered to form the basis of a one-on-one online interview with the presenter that is recorded and made available to all participants for download. If you have purchased a Breakout session and you’d are having trouble accessing the materials, you can find them by following the directions on this pdf. Here are just a few of our upcoming breakout sessions:
