Do you offer certification?

Certification is available through our Lifetime Plan (see below).

How does the Lifetime Plan work?

Of all our plans, the Lifetime Plan offers the best value for money. It grants you lifetime access to Karl Taylor Education, plus bonus free gifts and the opportunity for certification. When Lifetime members feel they're ready, they can apply for Karl Taylor Education certification by submitting a portfolio of up to 10 images for review. Karl assesses these images personally, rating the skill and competence displayed in each before scoring the portfolio as a whole. Members who display a sufficiently high level of understanding and photographic skill will receive certification in the form of a printed Karl Taylor Education certificate. For more information about the Lifetime Plan, please visit our Sign Up page.

How often do you release new content?

We release new content regularly, aiming to produce one new class and at least two live shows every month.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, global supply-chain issues mean we have experienced difficulties in sourcing lens pouches, camera straps and colour checkers.
