After launching SanDisk Professional, a new premium product line, Western Digital has now launched a new SanDisk Professional Academy for Australian creatives. 

Free to join, the new SanDisk Professional Academy is an initiative designed to act as an online community hub, offering members content, advice and training from a series of 'SanDisk Professional Mentors' who have been selected to share their industry experience and practical advice on shooting in the studio or on-location.

A number of Australia’s leading creative professionals across the film, photography, music and entertainment industries have been selected as mentors. Through sharing and advice articles, video content and inspirational content in the 'Mentor Gallery', it is intended that Academy mentors will be able to collaborate with members in an effort to give back to the creative community in a meaningful way. 

One name on the list of SanDisk Professional Mentors that you might recognise is Alex Cearns OAM, Director of Houndstooth Studios. 

Cearns said, “This opportunity allows me to impart my knowledge of pet and wildlife photography. It's a great way for me to share my experiences with other creative professionals, both in my field and in other industries.”
