The Full Schedule By Track - Day One (Weds. August 21st)



  • This step-by-step instructional presentation and live demonstration will teach the artistic lighting technique of Lightpainting. Lightpainting combines long exposure times with illumination from mobile light sources to create a unique photograph. This highly creative lighting technique is applicable for every photographic genre. Lightpainting small still-life subjects, to portraits, and even large-scale landscapes plus all the gear that I use will be covered during this class.
  • The wilds, whether you find them on some strange continent or outside your window, are where you can find wildlife. Once you find the critters, the passion bites and bites hard once you intimately watch them through your viewfinder. Critter biology has changed very little, but the photography technology has greatly evolved. The marriage of these two to protect the welfare of the subject while bringing back their story in our photographs is a craft. How do you find the critters, get them in the viewfinder and then share those images? Come on an adventure with me as we explore birds and mammals from around the world and by combining biology with technology we can share their stories!

Posing is fun, easy, and incredibly important to any photographer that photographs people. Clients want to look their best, and they rely on the photographer’s skill to help them do just that.


  • Just as in the Movies, color is what ultimately gives pictures their finished look. It’s how we add mood, atmosphere, create a feel and ultimately make a picture recognizable as our own and have a style. Join Glyn for this one hour session as he shows you how you can dramatically change your pictures and create your own unique looks with color.

Learn everything you need to know about sharpening; from the fundamental concepts to practical tactics that make your image get the most attention on social media. Explore various techniques, ranging from sharpening with one-click to applying varying levels of sharpening to create contrast. Enhance the details for the type of images you create, whether it is landscapes or portraits. Unmesh will even be revealing a secret sharpening method which will totally change the way you sharpen. To make the sharpening process even faster Unmesh will be providing significant actions.
  • Whether you're a Beginner or Seasoned Professional, without a doubt the most powerful technique you'll ever learn in Photoshop is Frequency Separation. Join Glyn for this Photoshop Master Class as he shows you how to understand and utilize this powerful technique in all your retouching to give you way better, easier and more realistic results!
  • Selections—a foundational topic for everyone working in image editing. There are long discussions about what is the "easiest" way to make a selection. In this session we flip that narrative and say "what's the best way to make that selection?" This class is all about how the image affects our selection decisions. Diving deeper, the class will look at what the final edit needs are and how that might influence the approach to the types of selections. To sum it up, Mark will cover foundation knowledge of selections and offer guidance in making effective selections.


  • Unlock the power of Presets in this session taught by renown photographer and Lightroom guru, Serge Ramelli as he shows how to create amazing special effects, looks, and speed up your workflow at the same time by leveraging Lightroom Presets. You’ll go way beyond the simple Presets that come with Lightroom and open a whole new world that makes creating fascinating images faster and easier than ever before.
  • This class is for those times when you go out shooting and the light just isn’t cooperating. While it’s always great to practice capturing photos in great light, sometimes we just can’t - and we need a little help from Lightroom and Photoshop to make the photo be everything we imagined it could. In this class you’ll learn some simple techniques to add some sun, flare, and light to your scenes, even when they start out a little flat.
  • Session description coming soon


  • Join Mark and take a deep dive into the foundation leading up to the topic of Color Science. From movies, to ad campaigns, storytelling, and lifestyle images, color has always been a defining factor in the quality and impact of a valuable image. In this session Mark will explain the science of color systems within Photoshop, where we can apply them, and how to control our color edits. He will also focus on how to make classically informed color decisions, and how tools and features in Photoshop will help you execute those color design choices. If you want to better understand themes, color grading, blend modes, color correction, and more—this is the session for you!

You'll learn about Libraries, Vector Smart Objects, Paths, and some hidden sources of amazing Illustrator graphics that you can use in Photoshop.
  • Learn the simple techniques to take your typography to the next level. Dave will show you the shortcuts for adjusting tracking and kerning, explore the idea of working with glyphs, and more of the secrets to creating design worthy type treatments.


  • How many times have you stood in a gorgeous landscape, taken your best shot, only to be disappointed in all the ways it did not express what you were feeling when you pressed the shutter button? How do you translate that feeling of awe and wonder into a finished signature photo? Better still, how do you do it consistently? Using images and stories, Karen Hutton will lead you through a process that shows how to make the kind of choices that matter when it comes to conveying feeling, emotion and story—specifically geared toward landscape photography. It’s an epic tale that covers artistic choices as well as gear, settings and choosing your shot. Then she will take you into post-processing from the point of view of feeling, emotion and story. It’s about a way of thinking - and the “Arc of Creation”, from first gasp to final product.
  • Session description coming soon
  • Learn how to master the most important thing you can do, in-camera, for your landscapes—nail the composition. Join Matt as he shows you the different ways to see the scene in front of you, as well as a key checklist of things to look for.

The Full Schedule By Track - Day Two (Thurs. August 22nd)



  • In this class Serge will show you how to do a natural and illustrative type of HDR photography using tools such as Lightroom, Photoshop and Aurora HDR 2019. After this one hour class you will be able to do HDR your way with the best tools available.
  • If you are like David Ziser and don’t like getting up at 4am to stake out a location so that you can get that “perfect” shot with that “perfect” light that only happens at sunrise—to be rewarded with fogged in mountain tops, boring cloudless sunrises and the like, then this is the session for you. David will show you how to find the best shots in the later part of the morning, middle of the day, and early evening. With the proper composition, lighting, and colors you can pull this off effectively. Join David to learn how he does this. He will share his latest tips, tricks, gear, and insights so that you can start sleeping in.
  • How do you stand out and get noticed? How do you develop your own unique and identifiable style? The answer is Personal Projects! What to do? Where to start? What lighting style should I use? Glyn will cover all this and more plus 'The Same isn't the Same' Success Principle!
  • Join David Ziser as he shares the secrets to how he became a world-renowned—er, pretty good wildlife photographer—after just three weeks on safari in Africa. If going on safari is on your bucket list, David can relate. Being up close and personal with the wildest of wild beasts of Africa can be such a rush. Once in the safari vehicle chasing rhinos out of the bush, fleeing charging elephants, and staring down a lion 30 feet in front of your camera—yes, all those things happened to David—you better be a quick study in-order-to capture those spectacular moments with your camera. In this session David will share with you the all-important lessons he learned leading up to his safari experience, everything he learned during his three weeks on safari, and his best tips and tricks. You will also get a chance to see several of the amazing images he brought back from his trip.

  • All photographers want the single magic answer that solves their photographic issues in a heartbeat. There is no single answer, but in sixty minutes, Moose will give you fifty answers that alone, or in combination with others, will move your photography forward by leaps and bounds. Not only does he provide those answers; he provides the logic behind those answers. This allows you to decide if they apply to your photography and visual storytelling.


  • Have you tried to use actions but found that they’re causing you more harm than they’re worth? The problem might be that you’re only scratching the surface of what actions can truly do. In this class, Kristina Sherk will show you how to tailor the actions you create to work perfectly on all of your photos. Once you learn the hidden options and secret tricks to getting the most out of this efficient tool, you'll be on your way to becoming an actions power user!
  • If you’re the type of person that thinks “If there’s a filter in Photoshop, then it MUST have a purpose”, this class is for you. We’re going to dive into Photoshop’s Filter menu and take a look at everything that’s there, along with some examples of how most of them can be used. By the end of the class you’ll better understand which ones may help you as a photographer, and which ones not to spend any more time wondering about.
  • Let’s admit it - masking is a four letter word for any beginner Photoshop user, and in all the other classes out there, they just tell you “White reveals and black conceals,” then the instructor shrugs their shoulders and says “Ok let’s move on.” Wait… WHAT?!? In this class Kristina Sherk takes the time to really explore masking and how to harness it’s incredible power. She dives into the mentality behind the concept and then also shows you the best methods to use while masking. It can be truly life changing if you take the time to learn this fundamental concept!
  • Join Victoria and master Photoshop workspace organization, Toolbar organization, Brush organization, as well as oil painting and watercolor painting using Photoshop brushes.
  • Some of us may already be familiar with using masks and in their nature we tend to always apply white or black in proportion to that mask to reveal or hide the effect that we are using on that layer. This class looks at the uses that can be gained from using alpha masks in the editing process, just what an alpha mask is, how to create one, and what it can be used for. Tim will look at how to create them easily, and how to create a suite of ‘retouching actions’ based on alpha masks to make very small but more accurate adjustments to images in Photoshop. Alpha masks rock. They give us a very controlled way to target specific elements within an image and control those in a much more delicate and accurate way.
  • You’ve photographed something you love, a moment that filled you with awe, you told the story with emotion and feeling. Now what? How do you translate that into your post-processing to complete the vision? This class shows how to add a certain “secret sauce” to post processing via Photoshop techniques and plugins, in a way that is lead by the feeling you want to convey. Or another way of saying it: Technique in service of feeling. How to use creative processing in a way that translates emotion into visuals; that builds upon the bones of good composition and creates a signature piece, full of your voice and point of view. It’s a multi-faceted approach; as layered as we are, as we live our lives as if it were an art. It’s an approach that usually opens up new ways of seeing - which elevates you each time you apply it.
  • This is the future of where photography is going. It is working in multiple plates (images) shot in the field to create one final image.


  • Are you ready to take control of your Lightroom Classic catalog? Lightroom’s greatest strength (and greatest weakness) is the catalog that lies at the center of everything you do in Lightroom. In this class you’ll learn how the catalog relates to your photos, how to avoid and solve common problems that arise, how to create an organizational structure for storing your photos that makes sense to you, and how to maintain it over time. You’ll learn how to master the Folders panel, how to create collections to provide faster access to your most important photos, how to rename your photos and folders, as well as leverage metadata so that you can find what you are looking for when you need it. Beyond the basics, you’ll also learn how to safely move large amounts of photos to new drives or a new computer, how to move, rename, and backup your catalog, and a whole lot more.

There's a kind of video that nobody ever talks about, and that needs to change. It's simple video, captured by still photographers, that they add to their client services list to make a lot more money. In this class you’ll learn how to take advantage of that. You will also learn how to promote your business and land more clients by capturing yourself on camera. It's video that's easy to capture and looks truly professional.
