Through online classes, photography and imaging company Fujifilm is offering an accessible way for budding photographers and videographers who want to further grow their knowledge on the craft, especially during the enhanced community quarantine period.
“As our little way of uplifting the photography and videography community during these times, we are launching Fujifilm Academy Online, free online lessons that aims to educate our consumers about photography and videography while staying at home,” the brand shared.
Personally hosted via video by known names in the photography and videography industry, Fujifilm Academy Online comes in two time slots (2 p.m. and 5 p.m.) with new sessions every five days.
