Interested in learning more about the Education Section at Check out these questions and answers. If the following questions do not match what you are looking for, please refer to our "Contact Us" form and let us know how we can help you.

What is the Education Section at

The Education Section at is a combination of articles and resources for the active photographer. Included in this section are monthly feature and how-to article reviews, a virtual reference desk containing over 1,000 links to photography-related websites, and an online magazine to provide insight into the latest happenings in the world of photography.

What is the Virtual Reference Desk?

The Virtual Reference Desk is a compilation of hundreds of links to photography-related websites on the Internet. Everything from photo organizations to photography schools, and from digital equipment manufacturers to stock agency listings are included. There is also a "Photo Glossary" in the Reference Desk, which contains definitions to over 1,000 photography-related terms.

How is the Reference Desk Organized?

The Reference Desk is organized into twelve separate categories, several of which contain appropriate sub-catagories within them. The "Desk", as we like to call it, is referenced in a directory structure, which makes finding information very quick and easy.

Where did you Get all of the Links in the Desk?

We acquired the links in the "Desk" through numerous sources on the Internet, including, but not limited to: search engines; other database-type sites; individual searching through sites by our staff members; and several other methods.

I Know of a Good Link for the Desk. Can You Add it?

Sure, we can. One of our goals at is to supply photographers with the information they need to help them succeed in their photography. The suggestions from our visitors and members are one of the best ways we can help our photographer friends. If you know of a good link for any of the categories in the "Desk" email us at: and tell us about it.

Who Writes The Monthly Articles?

The articles on are written by third-party contributors. We only provide links to articles from, which we find to be interesting and informative for our visitors/members.

Do You Recommend any Photography Schools?

We cannot recommend any photography schools/institutions on, simply because of our advertising interests on the site. It would not be fair to our advertisers, if some members of our staff were partial to a school and decided to recommend it on, even if the school was not supporting our Site. However, does recommend the New York Institute of Photography (NYIP) as a viable option to traditional learning, through distance education. Mr. Davis has taken classes from NYIP and he is thoroughly convinced that they have one of the "best things going" in at-home education.

Will You be Adding Additional Categories to The Desk?

We will add additional categories to the "Desk", if we believe that they will help photographers. We are always open for suggestions in everything we do.

Back To Top

Do you Know of any Other Photography Info. Sites?

All of the photography information sites we are aware of can be found in the Reference Desk. We only included the Best sites in our listings, when we made the Reference Desk. You will find dozens of sites in the "Desk", which may be just what you need.
