Creativity Live Series - Jon Cunningham

Creativity Live is a series of brand new online workshops

Updated with new workshops.

Creativity Live is a series of workshops designed for those without a formal education in photography.

Tutor profile - Jon Cunningham, is a professional photographer and founder of award-winning creative education company, Creative Escapes. His work has been published in The Guardian, Daily Telegraph, Country Living and more, shot 7 books for Penguin and Dorling Kindersley, taught photography internationally across 16 countries, mentored dozens of photographers from beginner to professional, and is the author of ‘Teach Yourself : Your Complete Photography Course’ (Hodder).
