Are you a landscape, nature, or adventure sports photographer and if so, are you happy with your photography?

Have you tried various techniques to make your outdoor photography stand out, only to be disappointed?

Are you looking for ways to add that special sauce to your photos?

Well If I could show you some techniques that take your outdoor and nature photography from ho hum to wow, and at no risk to you, wouldn’t you want to know about it?

If you are like me you’ve been out in the field photographing some amazing scenery or action adventure only to return to your office with disappointing results and then wonder what needs to change.

I have been photographing for over 30 years and this has happened to me many times.  I would photograph then analyze the photography trying to figure out why the photographs didn’t look as cool as they did when I was in the field.  Often the problem was lighting so I tried software like HDR and others, but soon realized that HDR was limited and that software does not really create quality light. It was so disappointing!

Then one day I decided to incorporate a pretty simple technique of adding light to some of my scenes and what I learned was, while this wasn’t necessarily the trick that would work in every situation, it resulted in more dramatic outdoor and nature photography.

So, I began to experiment by adding light to many of my outdoor subjects and during this time I developed some techniques that allow me to show my subjects the way that I envision.

What you need is someone to show you how to get creative with your lighting by not solely relying on mother nature to provide perfect outdoor light. By giving me a chance, I will show you today how to take control of lighting and create the images you envision so by tomorrow your photographs will look better and more dramatic.

In this course, I will show you:

  • The tools of the trade from flashes to mounting devices
  • How flash light works with outdoor light and lighting fundamentals
  • How to make your subject stand out
  • How to photograph wildflowers in the field with added drama
  • How to add light to landscapes photographs
  • How to photograph outdoor portraits with multiple flash
  • How to light a camping scene
  • How to create dramatic action sports photographs like mountain biking or rafting using multiple wireless flashes.
  • How to get creative with light like Light Painting and spotlighting techniques.

I will show you all this right now so by the next time you photograph you will be looking at better photography in simple and complex photo setups.

This course is for people who love to photograph and want to apply the techniques demonstrated in this course.
