I'm so thankful I found Bloom. I've learned an incredible amount from some amazingly talented photographers who inspire me each day. I love how friendly and laid-back the forum is. I really feel like I now have photographer friends from around the world thanks to Bloom.

Bloom is an amazing and fun community to be a part of to learn, practice and sharpen the art of photography. I have been inspired by the images that are shared here and the intimate community that has been built. You really do get to know the other Bloom members and we are all there to help one another - nothing is held back and I feel comfortable to ask anything. I also love the variety of classes, projects and photo challenges they continually offer to keep things fresh and fun. Whether a newbie or a seasoned photographer, you will fit right in at Bloom

Have a question

We might have what you're looking for

We might just have the answer you’re looking for! If not, get in touch using the form below.

Do I have to be in business to be a forum member?

Great question – heck no!  In fact, a great deal of our forum members are hobbyists.  we love having a mixture of creative professionals bloggers and those that are simply shooting for the fun of it!

What is the differences between the workshop seats?

Active seats offer the full benefits of the online workshop: students get to participate within the workshop section, ask questions, email the teacher and get critique on their assignments where applicable from the teacher(s).

Silent seat students will be able to view all of the workshop material but cannot ask questions, email the teacher(s) or render critique on their assignments.

Alumni student seats are available to past students (both active and silent) that have previously taken the same workshop they are signing up for. Alumni are able to join discussions, ask questions and email the teacher(s).  They will also be able to post their assignments in a designated alumni workshop section but will not receive critique from the teacher(s).  Please note: Alumni seats require proof of purchase for the original workshop seat.

All students (active, silent and alumni) will receive the workshop PDF where applicable.

What makes your forum different from the others?

We believe that we are different because we have some of the most supportive members you will ever come across online! We work extremely hard to design our community around and for members who not only want to learn but also want to teach what they have learned, give back and encourage others along in the process.

Can I discuss business related questions on the forum?

Of course! In fact, we have an entire  section with hundreds of threads dedicated to all things business. We pride ourselves on being a place where everyone can share and brainstorm their business and marketing ideas with one another.

Can I view the forum from my phone or tablet?

We know many of our members are busy and constantly on the go, so thankfully Bloom works with TAPATALK‘s functionality to help enhance the mobile experience.

HERE is the link for iTunes and HERE is the link for android.  Once it’s downloaded, get started by finding The Bloom Forum using the search feature.  Then just log in using your forum username and password and you’ll all set!

Do your members get together for local meetups?

Yes, as a matter of fact they do! We have a special section inside the forum so you can connect with other photographers in your area and meet face-to-face.

Do you have an affiliate program?

Our loyal members spread the word like wild fire and with fans like that- we had to find a way to say thank you! Every time someone signs up via your affiliate banner and/or link, our members receive an 18% commission on the amount of sale.  In order to take advantage,  new members must sign up via a unique affiliate banner and/or link.

Do I need certain equipment to join The Bloom Forum?

Nope! If you have an internet connection, that’s all you need! Although, we can’t promise you won’t start lusting over a new camera body, lens or a stylish camera bag though.  We know once you join in on the forum, you’ll catch the photography bug in no time.

Do I have to be a member to participate in a workshop?

Is there a certain time the workshops run each day?

Nope. That’s the best thing about online workshops with Bloom; our teachers develop a work at your own pace schedule within the allotted workshop dates. The only thing that may have a due date are workshop assignments. And no worries if you reside in another country, people from all over the globe participate in our workshops!

What are the benefits of joining the forum?

There are a lot of benefits! Far too many to list so lets keep it to the mega important one- what’s better than an  instant base of thousands of peers and cohorts to bounce advice off of, share feedback and gather inspiration together? When we started our goal was and always has continued to be to create a safe place for others to reside to grow and uncomplicate their creative process as a photographer.

What can I learn by being a member of forum?

The better question is what CAN’T you learn?  We have tutorials that cover everything from basic material to the most advanced technical information.
