ADD a COURSE
To sign-up to Fotoura visit the sign up page. Alternatively, sign in here.
Follow these 3 simple steps:
Add a course help:
Course Name: The title or name of your course as it appears on your own promotional material
Course Subtitle/Tutor: An optional subtitle to your course name, possibly the name of the relevant tutor
Attach to your profile: You should already have added your profile to the website. If you did not do this, please return to your Fotoura Account page and follow the directions to ‘Add a profile’ – this will associate your course listing either with you as an individual or your organisation, depending how you have filled out your profile.
You will need to create a course listing first before you are able to add the relevant venue(s) through the separate +ADD A LOCATION form. The essential information for each course you add will be saved to your account, so that you can add new locations, dates and prices for a recurring course at any time.
You will need to create a course listing first before you are able to add the relevant date(s) through the separate +ADD A COURSE DATE form. The essential information for each course you add will be saved to your account, so that you can add new locations, dates and prices for a recurring course at any time.
This section is where you can highlight any unique features of your course. What distinguishes it from other courses?
Add a course photo. This is the main photo that will show up at the top of your course listing, and is also the first thing users will see when your course comes up in a search or is featured on the homepage of the website.
The image will ideally be an 800 x 800 pixel square, minimum 400 pixel x 400 pixels. See our guide to adding photos to Fotoura for further information.
This section will not be relevant to you unless you have created an in-app download to accompany your course. If you are interested in finding out more about this option, see in-app downloads.
BOOKING / SUB
Course Contact Email: The email address at which you would like to be contacted for course-related enquiries (optional)
Course Booking Phone Number: The phone number at which you would like to be contacted for course-related enquiries (optional)
Course Website: The website address at which users can find further information about course details and booking. Please be sure to use the full URL for your site, including the ‘http://’ at the beginning.
Type: Choose whether it is a workshop or a course according to the following definitions (you may find considering the ‘Theory vs Practice’ field will also assist you in making this distinction):
Course: Theory is generally more heavily weighted in a course than in a workshop. Practical concepts may be taught, but are put into physical practice less often. On average, a course takes place over a longer period of time than a workshop (as a multi-week workshop is atypical). Courses may be online or in DVD form.
Workshop: Compared to courses, workshops tend to have a shorter duration (1 day – several days) and typically weight the practical over the theoretical component. By our definition, in a workshop at least 50% of the class will consist of a practical, hands-on element.
Theory vs Practice: How your course is weighted in terms of its attention to theoretical elements of photography and practical, hands-on elements. This may help you choose whether to categorise your listing as a course or a workshop (see above definitions).
Course Recurrence: How often does a particular instance of the course have sessions? (This might only be on a single day, or might be daily, Tues/Thurs evenings, etc.)
Class Size: The maximum number of participants permitted on your course
Duration: Over what period of time a particular instance your course will take place
Course Description: This is your opportunity to really ‘sell’ your course and give the public a detailed description of what the course will entail.
What you will learn: Explain what participants can expect to gain from taking part in your course, in terms of new skills and areas of knowledge.
Who this course is for: Explain what kind of person should take this course (this is open to interpretation, but might be used to clarify the ideal participant’s particular area of interest or photographic background).
Course topics: What specific topics will be covered in this course, what particular skills will be taught (if relevant)
What participants need to bring with them: What items or pieces of equipment participants are required to bring with them on this course (a tripod, portfolio, warm clothes, etc.)
Course Image (Example 1-3): Upload additional images for your listing that relate to your course (optional) – these might be images taken by the course instructor or images taken by past course participants.
Course Image Credit Text (Example 1-3): Please include any necessary information to appropriately accredit the images to the artist/owner.
Please tick the boxes that are relevant to your course. These will help users find your course when they search according to various related criteria. If you are unclear on whether a particular category applies to your course or how to distinguish between the different skill levels, please scroll down to the bottom of the page for a list of definitions.

Live: Choose this option if you are satisfied with the details you have filled in about your event; it will be published to the website once you hit ‘save’.
