Webinars

I broadcast my webinars live each month on a wide range of subjects of interest to photographers. I record the webinars and those who listen in live get a copy of the broadcast as a video the following day so they can replay it as often as they wish. My hope is that these videos are building in to a useful library to help you get the very best from your images using Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop & the Nik suite of plugins. I try to demonstrate in a clear, easy to follow way, my work flow as a professional photographer. I try to show, not only how I do what I do, but also why I do what I do – so that you understand the reasoning behind my work flow. In making these webinars available, I hope you find them informative and useful in your image processing.

I base the videos on the latest versions of Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop at the time of broadcast – most are based on Lightroom 5 and Lightroom CC/Photoshop CC. However most functions are available in Lightroom 4 as well. I highlight where differences occur and I also describe differences between Windows and Mac versions.
PLEASE NOTE – THE PRICES BELOW ARE PLUS VAT. This is because of recent changes to EU law. The company I use to host these large video files and send them to you has to charge you VAT on the transaction at 20%. There is nothing I can do about this, sorry.
