Helping you develop your fine art equine photography and editing skills
(how it all started)
During UK Covid lockdown 1, I launched a series of live Zoom tutorials covering a variety of editing skills... These proved to be very popular and had such great feedback, that I hatched an idea to develop my online teaching further.... Zoom seemed the ideal vehicle to provide both live editing and live feedback, my classes went international to great acclaim!
Throughout Summer and Autumn 2020, I busily worked behind the scenes recording and building a tutorial library of helpful editing tips and techniques, from fantasy edits through to exceptional portraits, covering both in camera techniques, Photoshop and Lightroom skills and portfolio development and critique.
Where I lacked in IT skills, a good friend, Ceridwen Images, provided the back-up, and our launch was Black Friday, November 2020.
(the Christmas challenge)
Facing our third lockdown, Christmas was looking bleak and lonely, so we devised an intensive 5 day Photoshop program, for free, to keep creative minds active over the festive period and to spread a little love into the equine photography community; many of us had no work or an ability to keep our business going, so a chance to upskill and build a community of support seemed the right thing to do.....
The take up was astounding! We created a social media tidal wave of fine art images, so many photographers found the tutorials filled in the missing links in Photoshop and really allowed them to add a new facet to their portfolio, not only upskilling them for 2021, but also filling them with enthusiasm and some creative fire!
To see what we got up to, check the tag #equineportraitchallenge you will be amazed!

We offer a low cost monthly membership of $40 (£35) or a chance to save with a yearly subscription of $400 - you can cancel at any time, you are never 'locked-in'. I offer a monthly Q and A, live edit and critique session, plus a growing treasure trove of tutorials! There's something for everyone!
