Photography Teaching for 2024

Happy New Year everyone!

I love New Year because it’s a time for new beginnings, an opportunity to reset for the New Year and assess what’s worked (photography training) and perhaps more importantly, what hasn’t worked so well in the previous twelve months!


In December I relaunched my YouTube channel successfully, producing twelve videos on DxO PhotoLab. Support from the photographic community has been immense and I’m both grateful and pleased that people find the content so useful.

I will be expanding the content of the channel in the New Year to include Camera and Shooting techniques and some more advanced subjects including infrared photography, astro-photography and landscape panoramas.

Photography Training

In 2022 I introduced the Ultimate Guide Series which has been consistently popular, this year I’m adding more photography training in the shape of a virtual course aimed at photographers at the beginning of their landscape photography journey and 1-2-1 Zoom sessions aimed at improving photographers who would like to discuss their work with a professional.

For the last twelve months, I’ve been working on some new photography teaching for 2024 that will be launched this Spring.

Introduction to Landscape Photography

This course aims to inspire new photographers and offer a few things to intermediate level photographers too.

The course will have two flavours, one featuring DxO PhotoLab and the Nik Collection, the other featuring Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.

Introduction to Landscape Photography will be available at a cost of €50 with a discounted offer of €35 for everyone who has signed up to my mailing list before launch. I’ve done a considerable amount of market research, and I can safely say this represents the best value for money of any course I’ve looked at.

Content will include –

  • What kit do you need – Tripod, Camera, Lens
  • What Software do you need?
  • The triumvirate of settings
    • Aperture
    • ISO
    • Shutter Speed
  • Composition
  • Metering
  • Camera Modes
  • Focusing & Backfocus
  • Camera Settings
  • Sharpness
  • Processing with Lightroom/ACR – White Balance, Contrast, Tone curve, HSL and Masks
  • Processing with DxO PhotoLab – White Balance, Contrast, Tone Curve, HSL and local adjustments.
  • Processing wit the Nik Collection

The courses will include projects to put all the information into practice and there will be an opportunity to have a free one hour, 1-2-1 session with me to get feedback on the project work and discuss your ambitions and how you plan to realise them.

1-2-1 Virtual Sessions

Feedback is one of the best and most constructive ways to get out of your comfort zone and learn.

If you despair of the keyboard warriors infesting social media, these photography training sessions are private, constructive and customised to your specific needs. The sessions were initially built around virtual training sessions for Photoshop, Lightroom, DxO, and Nik Collection, but the feedback I have had suggests there are other topics that people would find helpful.

  • Photoshop
  • Lightroom
  • DxO PhotoLab
  • Nik Collection
  • Getting started as a Pro Photographer
  • Portfolio Review
  • Building a Photography Website

The idea here is that these will be “pick my brains” sessions – we’ll talk about what you want to discuss before the call and I’ll make sure you have a focused one hour session customised to your specific requirements.

That might be processing one of your pictures in the software of your choice, discussing different approaches to processing the same picture, discussing how you might improve the composition or all of the above.

All sessions will be done using Zoom, unless you happen to live in Granada in which case. you’re more than welcome to have a face to face session instead!

The sessions are available as one hour or two hour blocks at a cost of €95 for one hour or €175 for two.

Photography Workshops

  1. Just a quick note to thank you! I’ve used Digital cameras (Lots of Ricoh GR’s amongst them! ), software (lots!!) and frankly got thoroughly confused about workflow, processing and prioritising Nearly a 900GB into my hobby – I literally sold everything and used my iPhone. Coming back with an old Z7 and ZM50mm Sonnar f1.5, I wanted to know whether DxO was as good/current as it used to be…. I dislike Adobe 🙂

    I use Photo-mechanic to ingest, keyword and triage, then process….

    Your writing is concise, enjoyable and very informative, with very insightful comparisons of real value. I’m not quite sure how you maintain a consistent tone – and level of technical insight – but you do it extremely well and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading your work today… and I wanted to take a moment to say Thank you. Best wishes, Chris.

    1. That’s very generous of you! Thank you. Photo Mechanic is excellent, I used it constantly for commercial work in the UK. I started my processing path with Photoshop which is as sensible as a keen hiker attempting to climb Mount Everest without a guide. I progressed very slowly! When Apple released Aperture I found my feet, it was a wonderful program but sadly they shut it. down and by that time I had enough fundamentals to cope with Lightroom and start to get some value out of Photoshop. I’ve been using PhotoLab since V4, largely because I was frustrated with Adobe’s RAW conversion and noise processing. PhotoLab is way better at noise processing and there is demonstrably more detail in the RAW files. As a RAW processor I don’t think anything else comes close. Capture One is in the ballpark, I used it exclusively for commercial work but the licensing model is prohibitive.

      I looked at On1 PhotoRAW briefly and Luminar even more briefly, dallied with Affinity Photo and decided to settle on Lightroom + PureRAW/PhotoLab + Photoshop + Nik Collection. They talk to one another reasonably well which is important.

      Lightroom has more/better capability than PhotoLab in Masks, Stacking and Stitching (PhotoLab has no capability in the latter two) which has left me with a workflow that starts in Lightroom exports to PureRAW or PhotoLab and reverts to Lightroom for finishing. It gives me top quality RAW files and all the processing tools I need.

      With your workflow, I have a post and a video coming out on Tuesday which you may find interesting, the product is under NDA until then so I can’t discuss!

      Thanks again and I hope your photography thrives!
