The New Academy is Here!

We’ve been working hard behind the scenes here at Twig & Olive and are excited to share fantastic news! The Editing and Business & Tech Academies ( are being reforged and massively upgraded as the Twig & Olive Academy on our main webpage!

For being an active subscriber (THANK YOU!), we’re giving you three months of free access to EVERYTHING with no strings attached. If you love all the content – and we think you will – you can continue your membership at that time monthly or annually. The Twig & Olive Academy will be $24/mo or $199/yr.

By popular request, ALL the content from the previous video libraries will be available when you sign up! In addition, everything is conveniently organized by category and can be viewed at any time.

In addition, we’re adding many new features such as:

  • New content every week that goes beyond just videos and now includes downloadable templates, marketing guides, single actions, and more!
  • We have new Quick Vids on business practices, editing tools, camera settings, pricing and profitability, and studio software management how-tos.
  • Get access to behind-the-scenes shooting videos, photography product reviews from us, and guest content from other industry-leading photographers.
  • Plus, there will be monthly specials, member-exclusive deals, and sneak peeks.

As a bonus, if you access your new membership by November 30, you’ll get this month’s free Photoshop action – TOP Sharpen Up! This sharpening action works so well because it focuses 100% on selectively sharpening your image and painting on only where you need to fix it. And it’s fast – the action takes less than a second to load once you hit play. Other products on the market can take several *minutes*! As a result, we legitimately use this action on almost every single finalized image.

Here’s how we’re going to set up your new account:

  1. We are closing your account on, and it will be inaccessible after November 28, 2021. You will no longer be charged and will be unable to access the content after that date.
  2. On our main website (, you will be given access to the new Twig & Olive Academy and get started with your three months of access.
    • If you already have an account on, you will see a new Membership called Twig & Olive Academy in your My Account (
    • If you don’t have an account on, check your email for your temporary login information. It will be to this same email, so check your spam folder as well. You should receive this by November 30. Once you click on this link to your account, you’ll create a new password on your first login.
  3. Your free access will end on February 28, 2022. If you want to continue your membership, you’ll need to sign up for either a monthly or annual subscription at that time.

That’s it! If you have any questions, be sure to email us at [email protected] and we’ll get you squared away.

And if you haven’t already, make sure to join the Twig & Olive Online Learning Facebook group at to get all academy announcements. (When you’re answering the group membership questions, reference this email if you can’t find your order number.)

The Academy is a place where you will find the skills and knowledge to create a sustainable and profitable photography business. This leaves you free to do what you love: create great art for your clients and live your life beyond the computer.

Thank you so much for being with us.

The Twig & Olive Team

1. Why can’t you move my account over and continue my subscription?

The previous academy was on a website that used proprietary software, while our website is on an open platform that we’ve customized. As such, it’s not possible to migrate accounts.

2. Why do I have to sign up for a membership after February 28, 2022?

Keeping your financial information safe is our top priority. By upgrading your account, we’re only moving your name and email. All your financial information on our old site is being deleted, and to continue with your subscription after the free months’ end; you’ll need to create a new paid subscription on our secure website. No financial information is ever stored on our servers.

3. Why is the new academy more expensive?

This new academy combines the content from our previous two academies, and now all content is available regardless of when you sign up. That’s not even mentioning all the additional content we’re including! For members who had both academies annually, the price is the same!

4. I was just charged for a renewal on my old account; how do I get that refunded?

Since you were already a paying member of our previous academies, you can now access our new Twig & Olive Academy, which is a significantly better value!
