Online Photoshop  & Photography           Workshops

 

If your passion is Photography or Photoshop, online classes are a pretty cool way to learn and push your skills to the next level – all in the comfort and safety of your own home.

Join me for a fun experience with tons of learning in every class. This is the next best thing to being in a real workshop!

Practice makes Perfect!

Using Go To Meeting, everyone will have their microphones on so that it feels like you are in the classroom where you can ask questions at any time. Having taught in many schools around the country for years, including UCLA Extension where I won Outstanding Instructor of the Year, teaching online has become one of my favorite methods to help students learn.

All classes are recorded and you can download and watch them as often as you like, allowing you to practice what you learned anytime. The recording lets you stop and start the presentation so that you can review the material while working on your images. This is an amazing way to remember every method you have learned and eliminates taking notes during the classes too! Online classes have come a long way and we will have a blast in each one!

INSPIRE SERIES #1

Afterglow: Shooting After Dark

January 16th, 2021  9am PST  

From dusk till dawn, the darkness can reveal a world filled with mystery and wonder. Photographic possibilities become endless when imagination and knowledge collide after dark. Movement, color, and light combine to give results that are often unseen with the naked eye.

Longer shutter speeds can produce imposing cobalt blue skies, surreal car trails and star trails, one of a kind silhouettes, gorgeous motion blurs, electrifying lightning, and of course the awe inspiring Milky Way Galaxy.

This 4 hour intensive “Inspire Series” workshop will be incredibly immersive in the many aspects of shooting after dark. Be prepared to learn what you can capture after dark along with post processing techniques to achieve awe inspiring images. This is a course I love to teach!!

The Super Wide View  &

The Art of Creating Panoramas

January 30th, 2021  9am PST 

Capturing a wide perspective of the scene often means using a wide angle, super wide or even a Fisheye lens & the final result can be mesmerizing. Through the years, these lenses have become incredibly wider and the images created from them can create a feeling that you cannot achieve any other way. Wide angle can be amazing and this class will show what is possible from different lens lengths and why shooting wide or super wide might be what is needed. However, when wide angle is not working, a panorama might just do the trick!

A panorama consists of shooting several images, usually vertical, moving your camera each time and stitching them all together in post processing.  The results can be absolutely gorgeous and visually the feeling of a powerful panorama is like no other. The wide angle feeling is gone and it is replaced with a more realistic rendition of what you wanted to capture.

Behind the Shot

3 classes  /  November 2020   

Although a photograph is seen with the eye… it is made with the mind. As Einstein said: Imagination is more important than knowledge and I designed this course to give you an insight into my mind before, during and after I capture an image. The methods & ideas for creating some of my favorite and best selling images will be shown throughout this course.

During this online workshop, I will go through planning an image to capturing what was in my minds eye and then to the actual Photoshop work that finished off my creation as there is a tremendous amount of work and thought going in to many of my images. The vast array of tools & techniques in Photoshop let my imagination come to life & I will go in depth showing many of the methods I use to finish off my vision.

Once a week for 3 weeks, starting November 7th, 2020, this class will have live discussion & instruction covering my thought process throughout my workflow.  I love explaining what was on my mind creating some of my favorite images so this will be one fun time! I will answer questions from everyone and a recording of the workshop will be available to download to keep for yourself.

Photoshop Tips, Tricks & Filter Magic

All kinds of images will be shown from landscapes to travel to wildlife to portraits. Heavy emphasis will be on setting up Bridge, Raw and Photoshop and the tools and techniques needed to create different final images.

NEVER STOP LEARNING

My love for teaching started long ago and as an instructor, there is nothing better than knowing you have helped open the eyes of others. There is so much to show in these classes and I love to push people to find themselves and who they can be with their photography and Photoshop skills.

Each week,  I share with everyone my thought process and knowledge using many of examples and techniques. During the class, people are free to ask questions during the entire live class and the experience feels very much like being in an actual classroom.   Never stop learning!
