Ever since I began my journey as a landscape photographer, I had a dream that one day I would publish my very own book. I wanted to create a book that would inspire other people to see the beauty in our natural world and perhaps to also chase that same sense of awe that so intoxicates me. Learn more.

I just had to write you and tell you how excited I am to be able to use these presets! I didn’t even own Lightroom when I saw your advertisement for these presets, but between seeing your amazing photographic work and reading the description of this offering, I decided on the spot to go out and buy Lightroom and your presets. I just now downloaded them and played around a little bit and I am SO EXCITED!!!! I am an extreme novice with Lightroom, so I am just fumbling my way around in it until I get the hang of it, but already I am super-impressed with these presets. I started my vacation last night and I’m leaving today for a 3 day trip up to Mono Lake, CA to shoot the Milky Way! So the timing was perfect for me! 🙂

This is so much more than I could have asked for, especially considering the price. Thank you for this!!! I hope one day to meet you in person and personally thank you!

Sincerely,
Helen Watson

Overall it was an outstanding workshop. We visited a wide variety of locations, from a majestic old growth forest to the dramatic rocky coastline of Vancouver Island’s Pacific coast. Gavin was an excellent knowlegable instructor who taught at a speed and technical complexity that was well suited to my experience and skill level. The combination of practice in the field and post processing sessions certainly helped me to develop my photographic skills and allowed me to capture some great images I’ll be proud to show off.
