It Only Takes One Hour

I’ve managed to condense my entire RAW workflow into just one hour of video tutorials. That means you can learn how I do it without investing countless hours or days watching painfully boring videos.

Learn at Your Own Pace

Rather than facing one huge video tutorial, I’ve broken everything down into 25 mini video tutorials, so if you’d like to repeatedly watch the video just about ‘sharpening’ for example, you can get to it easily and quickly.

The total time of all 25 videos is just over one hour. You can either watch them in the order I created them or just skip to where you need help the most.

Make Your Photos Pop Right Now

This is how I edit ALL of my images. No matter what type of shot I’ve captured, every single image that I publish goes through this RAW workflow first. Now you can learn my entire RAW image processing workflow from beginning to end.

From opening your first RAW file, to saving high quality TIFF files for print and web ready JPEGs. I’ll show you how it’s done.

Using my RAW workflow, I have won awards, competitions and been published in a variety of magazines and printed publications. Learn these skills and maybe you could enjoy the same success with your images.

Video Makes Learning Easy

Visual learning is often the easiest way to learn a new skill. With these 25 HD video screencasts, you’ll see my every move while I narrate and talk about every step of my RAW workflow. It’s the next best thing to sitting beside me without having to put up with my coffee addiction.

The MP4 video files are all HD 1080p quality and will work on both PC and Mac as well as all popular tablets.

RAW Files Included

I’ve included two RAW files that were hand picked for their glorious imperfections. These files require some correction and enhancement that perfectly demonstrates my typical RAW processing workflow.

You can follow along with your own computer and process the images in tandem with the tutorials. Through repetition you’ll become adept at this RAW processing workflow.

  1. Thanks for this.

  2. Hi Gavin
    I would really love to photograph some of the Vancouver Waterfalls as per your video presentations. The ones that don’t risk death just getting to them preferably.
    Is this a trip that you can do or your suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I’d love to fit in Buchart gardens to if poss.


  3. Great. Thanks. I really enjoy your channel. Ditched TV…..

  4. Hey Gavin,

    This looks awesome, would love to signup and download the mini course but the form doesnt seem to be on the page any more?


  5. Hi Gavin,

    I just signed up for your Newsletter and noted that the Lightroom/Photoshop editing mini course cannot be accessed.

    I think this is what Matt (above is experiencing as well.

    Perhaps you could sort this on your return from some epic trips with Uncle Grumpy

  6. Hello Gavin:

    I just watched you and Blake ripping at each other. You know Blake is a pretty serious guy! Anyway, after that I wanted to check out your website/blog, etc. and saw that you were offering a Free Photo Photoshop & Lightroom Editing Course .

    Try as I might, I couldn’t detect the link on this page and perhaps I am too late to the party. I would, however, like to use it if it is still a viable option. Is it linked somewhere else? Maybe I can’t see it on this page because all the tears from laughter have impaired my vision. Anyway, thanks for the video. I am going to subscribe to your newsletter so I don’t miss future tips, tricks or offerings.

  7. Gavin
    I use on1 raw to process. In your opinion,would your work flow gain the same results?

  8. Thanks Gavin – I really enjoy all you v-blogs and tutorials. I’ve finally got some time to seriously get back into photography (although I studied it at art college more than 40 years ago) and have been shooting all my life. But it’s now time to really sharpen up my processing skills – and with this tutorial and suggestions via youtube – I’m really seeing an improvement on how I approach everything. I’ve been using Photoshop for 20+ years as a designer – but now I’m hitting a new level with my landscape shots. Keep up the good work.

  9. Very useful advice, well-paced, and delivered in Gavin’s mostly comprehensible Yorkshire accent. He covers a lot of ground here, in both ACR and LR, and with the example files one could try to follow and duplicate, though I find, watching on one computer, that attempting to pause, open a file, do such-and-such, then go back to the tutorial, too much trouble, so I just take notes. Actually, Gavin, a set of notes would be nice to include but that’s a lot more work! All in all well worth watching.
