THE GAME-CHANGER YOUR PHOTOS HAVE BEEN BEGGING FOR.
Opened Photoshop, took one look at all the menus, tools, panels and layers.....and immediately closed it again! 😄
Pushed past the initial overwhelm, but you still feel nervous or intimidated every time you open the program, and you're not exactly sure what you should, or COULD, be in doing in there.
Want tricks and techniques you can use to get richer and more vibrant images, or add in a little extra creative and artistic flair, but you're not sure where to start.
Know that most pro photographers use Photoshop but you figure it’s too complicated, or you’re just not ready yet - and meanwhile your images are missing out on that WOW factor.
Ain’t got time for complicated technical jargon, and just want to know the simplest way to achieve your desired look, without fluff or overwhelm, or having to learn a heap of tools and options that you’ll never use. That way you can learn Photoshop in a matter of days, rather than weeks.
Did you raise your hand to any (or all!) of the above?
Perfect! Because that means I can definitely help.
√ Have FUN with the editing process, and feel confident and in control in Photoshop, so you could create more creative, interesting images?
√ Take your images to the next level with no-nonsense editing techniques that help them stand out among a sea of sameness?
√ Add game-changing magic and shine to your images with simple, yet stunning, special effects?
√ Create beautiful portraits that help people look like the best, shiniest versions of themselves (and not some alien-eyed barbie doll!)
√ Speed up your workflow in Photoshop to make editing multiple images quicker and easier, so editing doesn’t take HOURS out of your life?
Learning Photoshop is what most photographers call the “game changer”.
That’s because Photoshop is where the MAGIC of editing happens - and where you can take your photos to that elusive next level status.
However, I get that it can be hugely overwhelming and intimidating.
That's because Photoshop meet the needs not just of photographers, but also graphic designers, illustrators, website designers, mobile app creators, cartoonists and more, so it has a load of tools and functions that as a photographer, you’ll simply will never need to know.
But that ALSO means it's easy to miss the easiest way to accomplish something, feel overwhelmed, or try to dodge using the program at all.
When I decided to learn Photoshop, I couldn’t find a single good resource detailing what most PHOTOGRAPHERS needed and wanted to know. That’s why I’ve spent months building the perfect resource for you that covers the MOST important tools and techniques for portrait and lifestyle photographers, so you'll soon be rocking Photoshop and getting the images you desire - but without the bone-crushing overwhelm!
