Visual Education Terms & Conditions
Visual Exposure Limited (trading as Visual Education; formerly Karl Taylor Education) has provided the very best photography and visual arts training for over 15 years. It was established by professional photographer Karl Taylor and is run by Karl and a small, dedicated and passionate team. Whilst we aim to answer any query you may have, please visit our FAQ page before contacting us as you may find your question answered there.
Our Terms and Conditions
Members of Visual Education (formerly Karl Taylor Education) are entitled to access to all of our courses, live shows, competitions and member discounts for the duration of the membership. To use the service you must provide us with a current, valid and accepted method of payment. If a payment is not completed in any given month, you will lose your access to the platform.
Monthly Plan subscriptions are charged monthly in USD ($) or GBP (£). Membership will continue on a month-to-month basis. Renewal is automatic. By purchasing a Monthly subscription, you authorize us to automatically charge your next membership fee to the payment method linked to your account unless you cancel your membership before your monthly billing date.
Six-Month Plan subscriptions are purchased via a single, one-time payment that grants access to Visual Education for a period of six months commencing on the day of purchase.
Annual and Two-Year Plans
All Annual or Two-Year subscriptions will be charged on a yearly or two-yearly basis, with the first payment being taken on the day of initial purchase. Membership will automatically renew unless you have cancelled your membership, with notice of renewal given in the form of an e-mail 30 days before.
By purchasing an Annual or Two-Year subscription, you authorize us to automatically charge your next membership fee to the payment method linked to your account unless you cancel your membership before your next billing date.
Lifetime Plan subscriptions are purchased via a single, one-time payment that grants lifetime access to Visual Education and the opportunity for a portfolio review. When Lifetime members feel they’re ready, they can submit a portfolio of up to 10 images for review. Karl assesses these images personally, rating the skill and competence displayed in each before scoring the portfolio as a whole. Members who display a sufficiently high level of understanding and photographic skill will receive a printed Visual Education certificate.
Those who score between 50-64% will be awarded a ‘Pass’, 65-79% a ‘Merit’ and 80% and above a ‘Distinction’. Members who score below 50% will have the option to re-submit their portfolio and an additional fee will be charged for a second review.

On selecting a new plan any credit from your current plan will be automatically calculated and offset against the price of the new plan. By upgrading your account you authorize us to automatically charge the difference to your account.
Once you have upgraded your membership your new subscription will be linked to your account and any future renewal payments will automatically be charged to the payment method linked to your account unless you cancel your membership before your next billing date.
Inappropriate comments and communications
Visual Education reserves the right to block and/or withhold approval from member comments and communications that we deem abusive, aggressive or otherwise inappropriate. Members who comment or communicate in this manner will receive a formal warning requesting that they refrain from doing so. Failure to heed this formal warning may result in termination of membership with immediate effect. Under such circumstances, no refunds will be issued.

Pausing a subscription
When you pause your subscription, you continue to enjoy access to Visual Education until the end of your billing cycle, at which point the pause takes effect. When the pause ends, your subscription becomes active again.
You are free to resume your subscription at any point during your pause period. You will be billed automatically on the day you resume, and that will be your new billing date going forward.

Subscription fee payments are non-refundable and there are no refunds or credits for any partially used periods (except for account upgrades).
