Is there a cost to join Photography & Friends Plus?

Yes. It costs $49/month or $490/year. You can cancel your subscription at any time.

Why do I have to apply? And do I have to join if I get accepted?

We use our application to make sure you’re the right fit for our community. This mostly means that you’re willing to commit time & energy to your photography passion, that you’re able to make the financial investment, and that you’re not a robot. Most people will get accepted. Afterwards, you’ll receive and email with a link to sign up, but it’s not obligatory.

What platform is used for Photography & Friends Plus?

We decided to move Plus off of Facebook Groups (the free P&F community platform) to give us more control over how we can share information, how members can connect, and ultimately to create a better experience for you. We are using Circle, which is built for creating communities like ours.

Why should I join Plus? It sounds expensive.

We know the cost to join our premium community isn’t going to be feasible for everyone. But we also know that people are more willing to put in the work if they make a financial investment in themselves. If you think about how much you can potentially gain, the cost is rather minimal. Plus, you get access to all of our courses and weekly office hours, which typically cost $1,000s if purchased separately.

Also, if you run your own business, the cost to join our educational community is likely a tax write-off (make sure you ask an accountant/tax specialist in your area to confirm).

How is this different than the Facebook Group?

Our Photography & Friends Facebook Group is a great place for all of our students to share their photos, ask questions, get feedback, and join in frequent livestreams. But it has grown so much that we are unable to personally respond to every single post and question. We created Photography & Friends Plus so we have a place for deeper connection & more helpful support with students who need it. The biggest differences include our weekly live sessions, daily support (answering questions, critiquing photos, etc), and unlimited access to our courses. Plus is great for any of our Facebook Group members who want a little extra help.

What is the refund policy?

We offer a 30-day money back guarantee. If you are unhappy with your membership for any reason, let us know within the first 30 days of membership and we will refund your payment.

What if I already have a Video School membership?

The biggest benefit of joining Plus is the private community & support you get from your instructors through office hours, direct messaging and the community spaces. We don’t offer any discount for current Video School members.
