In the event you’ve already taken advantage of all of the other free educational resources that have come to light amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, photo education website Photography Life has announced it is releasing all of its premium photography courses for free on YouTube.

Normally, each course costs $150, Photography Life founder Nasim Mansurov explains, he and his team wanted to give back to the community in these challenging times. In the announcement post, he writes:

‘We spent many months filming our courses both indoors and in remote locations, in order to provide the best education we can possibly deliver to our readers. With the world dealing with possibly one of the worst health and economic crises the world has ever seen, we thought it would be a good idea to give away everything we got to our community. We hope that these courses will help our readers in getting solid photography content to learn from, for many years to come.’

Currently, the first course ‘Level 1: Photography Basics Course’ is available on YouTube, with each chapter broken into a separate video. Photography Life’s two other courses ‘will be uploaded to YouTube in the next two weeks,’ according to the announcement page. Below is the introduction video for the first course:
