WIN A PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS – The Define School Giveaway

The winner of this contest is Sarah Whitwell. Thank you everyone for participating.

All four guest posts this week were from members at the Define School.  They are so kind to give away a spot in one of their October classes. The winner gets to pick and attend any one class, no matter the cost (and even if the class is SOLD OUT – they saved a spot just for the winner).

To enter:

  • Simply leave a comment on the MCP blog post letting us know which photography class you want to take if you win.

Increase your chances of winning a photography class?

  • Join the MCP Photographer Community Group on Facebook.  You can learn from and interact with other photographers across the globe.
  • Share one of the posts from this week – Oct.1-4th on Pinterest, Facebook or Twitter.  Then come back and leave a comment letting us know. Get up to 4 entries for sharing all 4 posts.

For information on each of the Define School classes you can simply visit the school’s home page or click on any links below that interest you. They will have signups for January classes soon, so if a class is full, keep watching.

    Pinned, tweeted, shared on facebook! Thank so much. I love all the choices. Any would be great to be a part of! and, even if I don’t win, when I have enough funds saved, I’m going to take one of these great classes! Can’t go wrong with any of them.

    Auto to Manual. I would love be more comfortable. While, I don’t shoot in auto, there are still many things about my camera I don’t quite understand, and therefore am not comfortable. Most everything I have learned, has been self taught. This class would dramatically change that!

    I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to win a class!!!! I just finished up The Inspired Child and it was AMAZING!!!!!! I would love to take Children& Familes as this is primarily what I shoot and would love improve!!! Thank you for the opportunity!!!

    I would love to win the Children’s + Family’s course. Its an area I could use some guidance in and I have been looking into taking these classes for a while now!

  8. 65


    I’d love to attend Children + Families class! That is all I shoot and after recently switching to a new camera, gaining new knowledge and refreshing the knowledge I have would give me more confidence with the new equipment.

    Kara Headrick says

    I would love to attend From Auto to Manual. I have been using manual for a while now, but find that it doesn’t have the sharpness and clarity that I would like. Maybe I’m still off a little from what I thought! Thanks

    Megan CG says

    Such a hard choice!!!! I love and am inspired by all of these photographers!!! Either Kellie Hatcher’s Light & Life or Children & Families!

  13. 89


    I would love to take the Light + Life class! It looks right up my alley. Love this: “I will also help you define your own vision by seeing what is right in front of you a little differently and therefore igniting revelations from within.” Plus, I can take it in PJs!

    Post shoot workflow – I have twins 4 and an autistic some 7 and I take ages to edit and my workflow needs a super help shot so I can spend more time with them and less in front of the computer. MCP THANK FOR THE CHANCE TO WIN THIS. X

    Natalia aka Maygirl says

    So gorgeous giveaway!
    I love all classes especially Light+Life, Through the Looking Glass, Children and Families and it was difficult to choose and……….
    ok… let it be Through the Looking Glass!!!

  36. 341


    I have never ever ever wanted to win a giveaway on any site so badly! I pinned The Resistance Monster yesterday before I even knew there was a prize involved. I loved this whole series of posts. I honestly don’t know which class I would choose… I like the idea of “Awakening the Spark” since I JUST quit my day job to write/take pictures, but I also like the idea of something more technically focused like “Through the Looking Glass” or “Post Shoot Workflow.” Argh… I don’t know! I’ll worry about that if I win. 😉

    AUTO TO MANUAL!!! I’ve been playing with my girls cameras and they just bought me my own…. so it’s time to take it a little more serious and LEARN!!!

    Jordan says

    All the Define School classes look amazing! My top two would be auto to manual and light + life. I shoot in manual, but I’ve been wanting to take a class to fill in any gaps in my self education.

    Neets says

    Auto to manual please. I’ve owned my first DSLR for less than 24 hours. Dead keen to learn. Found my way here from The Pioneer Woman photography website. Have liked MCP on Facebook. Cheers
