If we had to DEFINE them, we'd use the following words: individualism. Honesty. A guide along the path to becoming.
This isn't your average continuing education.
When The DEFINE School labels themselves “an unconventional online school for the evolving photographer,” they're quite serious, both about the unconventional and the evolving part. The titles of their classes--“Through the Looking Glass” and “Awakening the Spark”--read more like manifestos for life change than photography courses. And that's just the way The DEFINE School likes it. Their own manifesto, to “foster authentic artists, combat loneliness and make learning photography easy, affordable and accessible to people all over the world” is supported by small, intimate classes and world-class artist-teachers. Does this sound like your kind of place? You're in luck; The DEFINE School is partnering with Design Aglow to give away a $500 gift certificate for their coursework. (And thanks to their very reasonable prices, this would probably cover two classes of your choice.) Ready to win? Check out our Rafflecopter widget below for multiple ways to enter.

Hi! Tell us a little bit about yourself. What was your road like to becoming a photographer?
Hello! I am a portrait photographer based south of Boston, MA. My passion is capturing mothers and their growing families. Maternity and newborn portraits are the foundation of my business, and I also capture baby milestones, children, and families. Fun fact: I returned the diamond earrings my husband bought me for our first Christmas as a married couple to buy a digital camera.
When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.
There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.
