I’m looking for photography course suggestions—

I took photography in high school and a beginners course in college but thats all. As an art director some of my favorite work revolves around video and photography, so I’m looking to understand more—technically and creatively. Who has good suggestions of courses or programs, online or in person (anywhere) that can help me expand my knowledge?

I am currently a year from finishing my PhD and was looking at VC's as a career path because I like to do meta-analysis of different climate change techs. I networked with VCs and one of them was receptive but didn't have the budget currently for a full time hire. They said they'd be interested in working with me to do a research paper over the coming semester, and was wondering if I could leverage this into a full time offer?

Is a white paper with a VC going to be attractive on my CV?

I have a written offer that’s contingent on a background check. I don’t anticipate any hang ups with the check but would like to wait until giving my notice until everything is official. My question is that there’s a set start date on my written offer. Which could leave my current position with under a 2 week notice period. Thoughts on how to cautiously proceed while waiting for background check to complete?


Hi everyone! I really want to get into the tech ... I am considering Cloud ( aws, dockers, devops) but I also like data analytics/science!

Been an art director on the agency side for a few years now. Easily my favorite part is video production and seeing an idea come to life. Can I hear any opinions on being an AD on the production side, versus agency side?

Hey all,

I’m trying to switch careers from design to art direction and I’m trying to develop my skills.

Can anyone recommend some good books that will help me to improve please?



I started full time at an agency mid pandemic so have never once worked in the office. I find myself working 50+ hour weeks even from home. Everyone who says "I can't wait to be back at the office" - are they really serious? To tack on commute time and public transit anxiety, wake up at the crack of dawn. Will working from the office somehow decrease the work load and increase productivity? Genuinely curious who wants to go back and why.
