SmugMug’s Markham Bennett said, â€œThere isn’t a pro in the field, any field, that won’t tell you that the key to improvement is instruction and practical application. With this in mind, we’re presenting this series of workshops for photographers of all levels. By adding the element of Marc’s workshops we are taking the next step in our in our mission of devotion to priceless photos.â€
SmugMug was started by a small family who wants to keep the successful photo sharing site ad-free. Unlike big commercial sites, SmugMug will not require your Aunt Meldita to register before she can view and download your hi-res photos. And they keep your photos the way Fort Knox keeps it gold.
