I Signed up but haven't received the emails! How do I access the videos?

Thank you for signing up for the conference! It's very important to ensure that you're receiving the emails from us, as the emails are the only place that will contain the links to watch the conference. Here are a few things you can do:

Search your email for any emails from info@onlinephotoacademy.com or matt@onlinephotoacademy.com

Search your email for any emails from "Turn it Up Conference", "Matt Kennedy" or "The Academy"

Look in your SPAM FOLDER and your PROMOTIONS TAB (Gmail users) for the emails. They are often in a place that is hard to find as the email system considers them spam until you've shown that you want them.

Once you find them, DRAG THEM TO YOUR INBOX so we are placed on your safe list. You can also reply to the email with a quick "hi" so we're placed on your safe list as well.

If you can't find them, try signing up with a different email address, or emailing info@onlinephotoacademy.com to get help. Thanks!
