During the past decade of photographing, I’ve developed many actions to assist with my workflow. These actions have always been included in the workshops that I teach, but I’ve never sold them separately.

Why?

Because I didn’t want people to just use the actions, I wanted them to LEARN Photoshop.

As such, I decided to package my black and white action along with EIGHT videos to teach you more about Photoshop. Not just the how, but the why. In this video series, you learn much more than how to convert your images to black and white, you learn why color mode and tonality are important in a proper conversion.

I suppose you could just purchase the actions, install and execute. But c’mon, I’ve included so much education in this series!

Learning more about Photoshop will improve your images and your confidence.

Photoshop Black and White

Bryan and Samantha, along with their very closest friends and family, traveled to Malibu California for their destination wedding. They held their ceremony and reception at the picturesque Saddlerock Ranch Winery. When Craig and I were asked if we would like to travel with them, I thought, ‘photograph Samantha in sunny California at one of the most beautiful venues I’ve ever seen? Why yes, I think I can make that happen.’

This was the site for their ceremony, it overlooked the mountains, and just beyond the ridge line was the ocean.

Bryan and Samantha opted for a first look, and this was the first time they saw each other.

They exchanged rings privately so that we could have them for the photos.

Samantha is the most beautiful woman, both inside and out. She’s generous, kind and has the sweetest little voice.

For photographers: this slideshow contains all of the EXIF data.

When I started photographing weddings in 2003, I was thrilled to be using the Canon 10D (oh my). From that date, through 2010, I was exclusively Canon (5D MKII at this point). In April of 2010, I decided to sell all of my Canon gear and switch to Nikon. In the video below, I explain why.

I have been teaching Lightroom since its inception in 2007 and one of the pleas that I hear most often is, “HELP! I’m so confused, I can’t find my photos!”

In fact, in the Intro to Lightroom Workshop, we would often spend a good portion of our morning as a group talking about file management and structure. Because this seems to be a hurdle for many people, I put together a free video series to solve your photo management problems.
