It took us a while but we (Katherine Gillis and I) got the online school up and our first course "Become a Fearless Traditional Retoucher & Spotter" launched and ended for purchasing in 8 days. Now we've got feedback and we'll be doing LIVE meetings with our students to answer questions and do show and tell.
I want to put in a poll question here just to test if it works on Weebly or not. If it doesn't, would rather know now than later. If you see this, it'll only be 3 questions and take less than 30 seconds to answer. Thanks in advance for helping me test my polling software.
"Become a Fearless Traditional Retoucher & Spotter" online course is UP! We launched 1-17-2017! Many were working and missed the Webinar.
I rendered and edited it a bit and here it is. You'll ;meet Katherine Gillis and me. We took questions and showed the inside of the course. We showed how to enroll, what it costs and you can see the bonuses.
Hope you buy this course analog photographers. There's nothing like it out there. It will ONLY be up until Tuesday, January 24th when we take it down. It will reappear in 6 months but will cost a lot more :)
When you buy now, you get it for life. You have access to it 24/7. The platform it is on is called Ofcourseware.xyz. All of this is in the webinar.
Now is the time to ask questions. We encourage you to email Katherine directly at email@example.com or myself at firstname.lastname@example.org. Seriously, it's a great course. We've already had positive feedback and it will only get better over the years. We will add to it and you will never pay a dime more.
Please take a look!
To access the launch on zoom (yes it installs for 30 seconds and you only put in your name and email) click on this url at least 5 minutes before 1 pm January 17, 2017.
On launch day you are offered a special bonus which is why the FIRST day is special. Everyone buying the course Tuesday gets a very special bonus from Katherine Gillis which will be announced ONLY on the webinar.
Look forward to seeing you there.
Katherine Gillis and I announced the date the course "Become a Fearless Traditional Retoucher & Spotter" will launch.
Our page on Facebook, THE CAROL BUTLER SHOW, crashed and burned for inexplicable reasons so the announcement originated from Katherine Gillis Traditional Retouching & Spotting Facebook page.
We filmed the show in B&W to honor analog photographers and draw attention to what the course is about.
We originally planned on doing the actual LIVE launch on Facebook and on THE CAROL BUTLER SHOW...however, learning that most analog photographers were NOT on Facebook at all has us scrambling to pick webinar software that can handle more than 20 people live without commiting to a year of Webinar software we would only be allowed to test on a limited basis. Because once a choice of venue is made, the only way you will learn of where to go is via email, we need you to let us have yours.
The reason we MUST do the LAUNCH LIVE is because we want to be there to guide you step-by-step thru the enrollment process AND answer questions. We've already emphasized you MUST be a subscriber by getting Katherine's FREE Tools & Resources Checklist because that is how we are able to communicate with you. All subscribers at this point have received the entire outline of every module in the course. We believe so much in how beneficial this course will be to any analog photographer we couldn't think of a better way of being transparent. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY...Katherine is offering on launch day ONLY, a special bonus. If you buy our course the day it launches you'll get a very special bonus.
As someone who has taken numerous online courses I realized many didn't hold your hand once you hit the BUY or ENROLL button. I hope to deliver a step-by-step what you do next before launch, and therefore, gotta have your email. (You're getting the checklist which you'd need anyway to take the course AND you'll get the entire course outline.)
The course will be online on a professional platform. The school is called: Ofcourseware.xyz. The school makes its debut with this premium, quality course. It opens after the LIVE Launch webinar. Again, we'll tell you what you need to do to access the webinar. If you've ever taken one (I personally have attended over 91 in 9 months) you know that you must have the webinar company's software downloaded on your computer or mobile device. It's not a big deal but if you haven't ever attended a webinar I don't want that to be a surprise or a panic. None of our home wi-fi networks could handle the tremendous band width required for everyone to attend so it's done thru their software. As soon as I find the BEST and EASIEST choice for all of us, I will email you who we are using before the launch day...by the way, which is JANUARY 17TH! YEA!
Should you have any questions at all about the course, the launch, please contact me (Carol Butler) at email@example.com.
Thank you for your patience as we release our baby to the world of analog photographers!
Katherine Gillis and Carol Butler discuss course launch process.
They emphasize the course will NOT be on social media (i.e. Facebook). It'll be on a special online school platform and if you go to www.katherinegillis.com and get her FREE Tools & Resources Checklist then you, IF YOU REMEMBER TO CONFIRM YOUR EMAIL, will be on our subscriber list.
This means you'll know the exact date the course "Become a Fearless Traditional Retoucher & Spotter" launches. If you're on our mailing list you've already gotten all 6 module outlines of the course so you can see WHAT will be taught. Transparent.
Take a watch and share. Next Thursday via email AND The Carol Butler Show Live we will announce the launch date. This is important because the first day we launch we have a very special bonus for anyone who invests in the course.
Email me if you haven't received the module outlines and I'll send them to you as long as you become a subscriber! Yea!
Professional Traditional Retoucher Offers Specialty Online Course for Analog Photographers
In this time of digital everything, traditional analog (film) photographers now have an online course option for retouching scratches or flaws in printed photographs.
Katherine Gillis, a master of photographic print retouching and since 1993 the exclusive Ansel Adams Special Edition print retoucher, will offer a course in mid-January through the professional school platform Ofcourseware.xyz which debuts with this course.
The six-module course, “Become a Fearless Traditional Retoucher & Spotter,” will explain and demonstrate details of applying dyes, mixing palettes and choosing appropriate brushes.
Gillis will appear live on THE CAROL BUTLER SHOW page on Facebook at 11 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 5th to promote the course and answer questions.
Interested photographers may sign up for Gillis’ free Tools & Resources Checklist at www.katherinegillis.com to automatically receive course information and module outlines.
Gillis attended the Veronica Cass Academy of Photographic Arts and has clients from as far away as Norway in addition to the Ansel Adams print work. “I have often been referred to as a retoucher’s retoucher,” Gillis said. “The opportunity to share my years of experience with both veterans and novices is exciting! Retouching can be intimidating – my course will help eliminate the fear factor.”
Course developer Carol Butler, an accomplished photographer, playwright and communications professional, said interest is high in this unusual course, which addresses the nitty-gritty details that can make photographic prints look truly professional.
