What does my YKS membership include?
It includes access to no less than 8 NEW videos per month, videos that are guaranteed to inspire you, make you more creative, and motivate you to go out and try these same ideas that are presented month in and month out. In addition, you will benefit from Bryan’s insightful critique of 50 random images each month. Who knows, maybe one of those images that Bryan critiques will be yours! And each month, Bryan will conduct 2 live webinars with a one hour Q/A where all of the most relevant questions are answered and the latest photography equipment is reviewed. During this monthly live webinar you have the unique opportunity to directly ask Bryan questions that are on your mind and participate in a member photo critique!
