Q: How is Photzy related to LightStalking?
A: Photzy is a sister site to LightStalking. We started as a small side project by the LightStalking team in 2012. The goal was to provide more in-depth photography training in the form of ebooks and video courses to Light Stalking's readers. Photzy has grown into it's own photography community now with over 60k members, providing a full library of photography tutorials via a Digital Locker. Essentially we're just a more education-focused version of LightStalking.
Q: How different is Photzy from LightStalking and other photography websites?
A: The Digital Locker is what sets Photzy apart from any other photography website. The locker is a collection of over 100 pieces of content which members get for free. Unlike other photography blogs and training websites, Photzy's content comes mostly in the form of beautifully designed, easy-to-follow ebooks, which can be downloaded and viewed on any device, at any time.
Our sister-site, LightStalking, is still the best place to get daily articles on photography and inspiration, as well as critical feedback on your work via their forums & shark tank.
Q: Where is Photzy based?
A: We are based in Sydney, Australia
Q: You're giving all these free products, what's the catch?
A: There is no catch. The free guides and videos are absolutely free with no strings attached. We are able to create these free products when subscribers continuously support us through the purchase of our premium guides found in Photzy’s Marketplace section, as well as offers announced in our newsletters from time to time.
THE DIGITAL LOCKER
Q: How many free guides are available in my locker?
A: We currently have over a hundred free tutorials available in your locker with topics ranging from fundamentals to gear, post processing, composition, lighting, creativity, and short guides on different genres. More guides are added each month.
Q: Is there a time limit to download the guides in the Digital Locker?
A: There is no time limit to download the guides in the Digital Locker. Most of the free guides stored in your locker will stay in your locker forever. We may remove guides that are outdated.
Q: Until when will the Digital Locker be free?
A: There is no time limit to the locker being free. We do not guarantee that it will be free forever, but at the very least, it still is.
Q: Can I upload photos to my Digital Locker?
A: No. The Digital Locker is for the storage of Photzy tutorials. You may use photo-sharing services like Flickr and 500px for uploading photos online. If you would like to share some of your photos with us, you may do so through our Facebook page.

Q: Can I share the guides with my friends?

Q: Why is my purchase not in my digital locker?
A: Not all guides that you purchase through our exclusive offers are stored in your Digital Locker. Although we promote products in our newsletters, you may have purchased them through a partner’s website. However, purchases made through the Photzy website are automatically loaded into your Digital Locker.

Courses purchased outside of Photzy can be accessed through the partner site. If a course should be in your locker but is not there, contact Customer Support.

If you are looking for a place where you can get feedback on your work, you may try our sister-site Lightstalking’s critique forum, Shark Tank. It’s free to join. Click here to access the Shark Tank
