October 24, 2007 11:00 ET® BetterPhoto Clubs -- A Big Hit!

REDMOND, WA--(Marketwire - October 24, 2007) -, the worldwide leader in online photography education, today announced that the BetterPhoto Clubs have already become a great favorite of BetterPhoto members and photography students. This new community feature is bringing together kindred spirits who share an interest in photography topics like photographing children, flower photography, and Photoshop. Canon lovers and Nikon loyalists have formed their own clubs. And so have BetterPhoto members from places like the Lone Star State, Montreal and Latin America -- all over the world!

"We've been delighted to see how quickly the clubs have formed and how much fun everyone is having bonding with each other, sharing tips for taking amazing photographs, and making plans for photo shoots!" said Jim Miotke, President and founder of "The Photographing Children club has been our most popular to-date. Club members are talking about using hand puppets, tweeting like a bird, and using bribes to get kids' attention. Just another great opportunity for photography students to learn from one another!"

The site offers over 100 courses on photography and Photoshop, taught by scores of published, professional photographers including Tony Sweet, Brenda Tharp, Jim Zuckerman, Outdoor Photographer editor Rob Sheppard, and Shutterbug editor George Schaub.
