Nokia gives free photography lessons to Russian buyers of Nokia Lumia 1020
The Nokia Lumia 1020 obviously attracts those with an interest in photography. That makes sense because of the 41MP PureView camera that adorns the back of the device. But even if you give someone the proper tools, it doesn't mean that the job will get done correctly. Which probably explains why Nokia is offering free photography lessons to those who buy the handset in Russia.

The lessons normally cost 1200 Rubles ($40 USD) and are offered by one of the top photography schools in the country, A 13 year photography veteran, Vladimir Kotov provides Lumia 1020 buyers with written and video tutorials. In addition, homework assignments are handed out and students have their handiwork reviewed by the team. Those taking the free lessons can speak with their peers and compare notes.

To get the free lessons, Russian Nokia Lumia 1020 owners download the Fotoshkola app from the Nokia Collection to obtain a PIN number which is exchanged for the lessons. The offer ends on January 1st, 2014. You can get an idea of what the lessons are like by watching the video below.

In Russia, the phone/camera own you. There is no need for lessons.
