Our Start the Year in Style special offer is live. All the details are here.

January 11th
New photographs are being added to the Online Portfolios Section, and specifically to the new Images Created in 2017 section. These consist of images created both in 2016 and in 2017 and published now. As is my habit I publish them under the heading of '2017 Photographs' because I go by the publication date, not the creation date.

The addition of these new photographs is an ongoing process. Expect to see new images coming up at irregular intervals over the next few days or weeks, as my schedule allows.

New Year resolution #2: collect art
I am always surprised at the number of fine art photographers who do not collect art. Art for me is a lifestyle. I love beautiful things and having beautiful things in my life is an essential aspect of who I am. As an artist I know that collecting art is indistinguishable from the act of creating art. Owning art by different artists in different mediums is inspirational. Their vision is expressed and shared in their work. To be able to see it everyday nourishes my soul. I encourage you to collect art, originals or reproductions depending on your budget. Being an artist is not just making art, it is also living with art. No one can create in a vacuum.

New year Resolution #1: Learn how to reach the next step with your photography

It's that time of year again! Over the next few weeks I will be featuring New Year Resolutions to help you reach the next step with your Fine Art Photography. Here is the first one:

The start of a new year is the time to start new resolutions. For photographers this means improving your photography or making your business more profitable if you are selling your images. Regardless of your goals or achievement level, it always means reaching the next step with your work because art is a journey and not a destination.

We all know that success requires efforts and that efforts equals results. The question is which efforts are you going to make this year, in 2017, in regards to reaching the next step with your work?

This can be both a difficult question and a difficult decision to implement. Our workshops and mentoring programs are designed to help you reach your goals. Take a look at our current workshop openings and see which one best fits your need. We just announced the 2017 Zion Fine Art Photography Summit and the field workshops are starting to sell out. Don't delay if these have your name on it. The best time to make decisions is now.

January 1st, 2017

Natalie and I wish you a glorious Happy New Year! May the New Year bring you health, happiness, beautiful light, fantastic photography and be the best ever. May all your wishes come true.

Happy New Year to all of you from Natalie and I.

Our Holiday 2016 Special offers are live. Click here to read the details
We have a total of four different special offers covering the new Lightroom and Photoshop Advanced Adjustment Layers Mastery Workshop, the 2016 Print of the Season limited edition and the Print of the Month Collection.

December 6th
The 2016 Print of the Season, my annual limited edition print offering, is available. This year's edition is limited to 5 prints, consists of a collector set and comes with an outstanding special offer.

This is a very limited edition (5 prints), far smaller than in 2014 and 2015 (respectively 14 and 15 prints), and I expect it to sell out fast. In fact some of the 5 prints have already been sold to collectors which means there are fewer than 5 still available.

Don't delay! You can see the offer now at this linK:

By the way we still have a few Monument Valley Shadow mugs available but they are going fast.

December 4th
We have expanded our special offer: the next 10 orders for Mastery Workshops, Fine art Prints, Field Workshops or the 2017 Summit will receive a free Monument Valley Shadow mug. First come first served. This mug is available only during the 2016 Holiday Special offer. It is not for sale and we only have 10. If you have a question (if you want to know if it is still available for example) just email me at alain@beautiful-landscape.com

Stay tuned, you don't want to miss it because this edition will be very very limited, far smaller than in 2014 and 2015, and I expect it to sell out fast.

Recent Testimonials:

I just wanted to let you know that I am very much enjoying the Mastery DVD training videos which are truly excellent and well worth the investment. The workflow is comprehensive and logical and all the little tips are invaluable.The more of the DVD's that I see the more I am enjoying them and the more I get out of them. I am very surprised at how much really useful information and great tips that I am getting out of them.

Too many training videos focus on the "how".......move this slider to the right etc, rather than on the "why". Your comments on adjusting colour by adding and subtracting other colours are really great and not something I have come across before, but they really make sense and make understanding the whole process much simpler.

David Fordham, Australia

I wanted to give you feedback for the Layers Mastery DVD.

Most striking was the way your images came across through the videos.

I was able to follow the optimization, look at them for a long time, and see the final glow of a masterfile. Subjects like black point, RUSM, and selective color took several videos for me to grasps.

Because you do them several different ways and for several different reason it required 10-20 photos for me to fully understand their goal. I was glad you explained it with so much depth.

I am most interested in your comments on selective color and color theory. I was glad you went into detail on the DVDs. I was inspired to continue learning this topic. I was also able to dramatically improve the quality of my prints which is what I wanted to get out of the dvd. I did several before and after prints.

Forest Naujock,
Layers Mastery Workshop on DVD owner

I'm working my way through the DVD--just finished half of it--and had to tell you how delighted I am with it. I relate to your practical and aesthetic approach so completely!

It's helped me with my understanding already, and your delightful accent is an added bonus. The illustration are great and a huge help. Thanks for this!

Layers Mastery Workshop on DVD owner

I am enjoying the new layers DVD very much . I think this is a fabulous product and the information is very valuable. For me, perhaps the most valuable part is the discussions of the master files.

Layers Mastery Workshop on DVD owner

Thank you very much for putting so much of your knowledge into a form
that we can all learn from.

Your Marketing Mastery Workshop on DVD has not only taught me a lot about marketing,
it has also inspired me to try even harder to sell my work.

I am excited about holding my own exhibits in the near future!

Peter Ahrens, Australia

Of all the photography workshops and classes I've attended, the Route 66 experience opened the door to unexpected forms of creativity.  

I am very happy with the images I produced on that trip.  In fact, I ended up with more interesting images from that workshop than from any other.  

Thanks again!

Joel Geffen

I am still on a high from my wonderful time with both of you. 
It was very, very special to be with you in the Navajo country.

Ginny, Colorado

Summit 2010 and Vision Field Workshop participant

I am about half way through your new book and very impressed. 
You have done a great job with it and I am finding the concepts very helpful.
Thank you for writing such a great book.  I am really enjoying it. 
Your photo of the stars rotating around Polaris is wonderful.


The Layers Mastery Workshop on DVD has helped me excel my work in a way that no other book,
tutorial (NAPP member) or seminar has. Your down-to-earth teaching style and your willingness
to share your techniques is unmatched in this business.

Thank you Sincerely

David Wolfe

Marketing Fine Art Photography is The Best photography business book
I have EVER read!

I'll make this short: if you are a student, an emerging or a professional photographer just wanting to improve your bottom line, read this book. The author is personable and helpful and the text is enjoyable.

Christine Goldbeck, Middletown, PA

Although I do not envision selling my work anytime in the near future I bought Marketing Fine Art Photography figuring there would be some useful info that I could apply in the workplace somehow (personal brand, etc).

I have so far read Part 1 & Part 2 (Chapters 1-8) and I can say that the book is more than I expected (not that I have low expectations for any book from Alain based on all the previous ones).

I found that these first 8 chapters contain much information that causes me to think differently about my work and artistry in general and gives me energy to do some different things in the future. Good stuff Alain!

John Motzi, Downingtown, PA
