Skip Cohen University - learn to THRIVE, not just survive

05/17/2013 — 

Skip Cohen University, proudly sponsored in part by Manfrotto, is setting a new standard for great education in photography. Founded by Skip Cohen, past president of WPPI and Rangefinder Publishing, he’s applying the same techniques used to take WPPI and Rangefinder Magazine to record growth.

In 2009, photo industry executive, Skip Cohen, founded Marketing Essentials International and launched the first Skip's Summer School, which twelve weeks ago evolved into Skip Cohen University. SCU is based on a simple educational concept…it's time to get back to basics.

“I’m applying the same energy, technique and passion we used to build WPPI, starting with an incredibly talented team of industry leaders. SCU has some of the finest photographers in the industry involved. Plus, a support team of dedicated, uncompromising artists, developers and designers,” Cohen commented.

Determined to build a lasting resource for professional photographers that's available all year long, the SCU site is now home to 35 faculty galleries. There are over 100 videos, 33 podcasts with noted industry icons and 100+ posts and guest posts.

The upcoming Summer Session for SCU in August will appeal to the beginner in wedding photography right through to seasoned pros. Programming, including hands-on education, will be offered in family portraiture, lighting, fine art, advanced wedding photography, intermediate Photoshop and hybrid technology, business/marketing and even boudoir and fashion.
