In this Week's Episode: 12 of the Best Photography Courses

I am launching this Episode in the middle of Black Friday week and Udemy are running a site wide Black Friday offer, with a declining discount offer (the sooner you buy, the higher your discount).  I have provided direct links for these offers at the end of the paid courses and I will remove them after 30 November 2013.

Secondly, I have arranged my own Black Friday offers directly from Course Creators for your benefit.  These are listed at the end of this post or you can visit the show notes for the Special Episode here.  These discounts are fixed and may well beat the Udemy offers so check out both before you buy.

Finally, Phil Ebiner was my guest in Episode 005 of the Online Learning Podcast.  He is one of the leading Photography Course Creators.  You can find offers to three of his courses in the Show Notes for Episode 005 here.
