The Arcanum is a pretty amazing idea. It's all about learning as a community under the guidance of a 'master' who heads the community by offering inspiration and guidance while encouraging the members to work together. Each community or "cohort" is only 20 people and members communicate through a Google+ community. The process of learning is driven by a concept of levels. So apprentices must complete certain tasks to progress to level 20.
It's novel and inspiring. And the community of Arcanum masters is positively star studded. The opportunity is there to learn from the very best and I can't tell you how excited I am to be a part of it.
Oh and one final thing. Masters choose their apprentices, so applying doesn't guarantee you a place. The best way to get selected is to add as much to your profile as possible showing your work, your social media links and talking about what you love and where you want your photography to go. Drop me an email if you're interested in joining my cohort!
