Gee, thanks for the warning Robin - now that I think of it, for $50, it makes sense. But the Pro track for $100/150 shouldn't be videos for that price.

And here my wife was looking forward to meeting Graham Nash.

As I am functioning on rumors, I just sent them the following email and we shall see what they have to say about it.

//--------------------------------------------------

One of my friends told me that the print academy shows are just movies.
Will the people listed on your site for track one and track two be giving live presentations or is it a bunch of videos similar to your on-line experience?


Or better yet, can you please compair and contrast the two print academy tracks with the Epson On-Line Experience.

Thanks in advance,

Read the fine print on the site and this may be of interest:

Renowned Industry Experts Such as:
John Paul Caponigro
Bruce Fraser
Greg Gorman
Mac Holbert
Jeff Schewe
Will Discuss and Demonstrate:

Notice the wording "Such as"

In their FAQ, they say:
Q. Will all 5 of the Track Two faculty be at each program?
A. Sometimes. The program content is the same city to city and will usually be presented by 3 of the 5 faculty.

They don't mention track 1 presenters (the big names) in the FAQ.

Here is a link to someone on the Cannon Forum who went in 2004 and called it "Video Interviews"
http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?mode=hybrid&t=30711

Maybe that is how it is for the $50 class and they have some people for the Pro class?

The Academy People replied to my emial - text follows:
Robin

//------------------------------------
Dear Robin,

Track One is approximately 70% video with one presenter.
Track Two is approximately 10 video with 3-5 presenters.

The content in the Online Experience is completely different than the
content in either Track One or Track Two.

For more information on the Online Experience, please go to
onlineexperiencesupport@subscriberplus.com

Thank you for your interest in Epson Print Academy!

The Print Academy Team
