The Program – Finishing Your Project

This intensive workshop will help you take your technical skills to the highest levels in ways designed to enhance your personal style.

Intensely focused reviews of portfolios and projects will highlight each individual’s strengths and set the stage for both creative and technical demonstrations and exercises that will help you take your work to the next level. You’ll think and see more creatively and you’ll have the skills to go wherever you need to go. We’ll help you squeeze every ounce of quality out of your images.

You’ll see two top pros process their own files, each other’s files, and your files revealing what it takes for technique to become an art. We’ll do all of this with and eye to helping you develop your own personal style.


Advanced dodging and burning / selections and masking

Advanced detail enhancement – noise, blurring, sharpening

Making the most of the tonal scale – shadows, midtones, and highlights

Softproofing, proofing, printing, and finishing

Editing, sequencing, design, and presentation

Expanding possibilities through targeted experimentation

Warning! No-holds-barred impromptu virtuoso performances will erupt.

Master Class

This is a true master class – experts review your current performance, demonstrate how they would approach the same material, and guide you through producing your own final results. Unlike most master classes, this one is led by two masters!


How is this Raw Creativity session different than our others ?

Our other Raw Creativity sessions focus on identifying and clarifying your vision and style. This workshop focuses on producing a project that demonstrates both. We’ll strengthen your personal project by identifying new possibilities and best practices and then teach you the techniques you need to arrive at optimal solutions.

This workshop is about execution. It’s best for people who have a clear idea of where they’re going, what they want to produce, why they want to produce it, and now want to find and practice optimum ways to finish a project. Take this workshop and your personal project will be ready to release.
