I am nearing the end of the Artistic Photoshop Techniques in regards to recording the videos for the upcoming Advanced Mastery Workshop on DVD/USB. I still have a ways to go but I am making excellent progress and moving faster than expected given the complexity of the project.
This is the largest tutorial I have created so far. It is generating a lot of excitement based on the enthusiastic responses I received to my pre-announcement email and posts on this site. If you have not joined the pre-announcement list you can do so now by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the words 'advanced adjustment layers' in the email subject.
You can also download the detailed table of contents and listen to a recording from the tutorial at this link.
Wow! I just looked at the table of contents for the new Advanced Adjustment Layers Mastery Workshop on DVD/USB and I can say that I'm really excited about getting this when it comes out.
Considering the excellent quality of your previous Mastery Workshops on DVD/USB, I expect this one to top all of the ones I own!

We just returned from teaching the 2016 Little Known Northern Navajoland Workshop. This was a fantastic experience, with wonderful participants and superb photography locations. As with all our Little Known Workshops we visited locations that can only be accessed with a small group. This was one of our most 'Remote-Locations-Intensive' (R.L.I.) Little Known Workshop. Expect to see photographs from the workshop on this site shortly.
The Little Known workshops are only open to 6 participants and all participants must be Alain Briot Workshops Alumni to be eligible. If you are eligible, and if you are interested in participating in a workshop that is like none other, drop us an email to let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org
Sorry, no exceptions. You must be an alumni to participate in our Little Known Workshops Series.
If you are interested but have not attended one of our workshops yet, look at our current workshops openings. We have several exciting workshops coming up and after you attend one you will become eligible for the Little Known Workshops Series.
The 2017 Marketing Success Seminar was announced today. The seminar takes place in April 2017 in Phoenix, Arizona. The contents are totally different than the 2016 Seminar. You do not need to have attended the 2016 Seminar to register.
The Seminar is scheduled just before the 2017 Antelope Canyon Workshop so that you can attend both and maximize your trip. A discount is available if you register for both.
Registration is open. All the details are on the 2017 Marketing Success Seminar Page. A limited-time special offer is available if you register early.
This page features a Triptych created with 2 photographs of clouds over the Grand Canyon region. A triptych is an artistic concept. To create artistic photographs you have to use artistic processes. In situations such as the one depicted in this image I find that triptychs allow me to express my emotional response to the scene better than a single photograph. How to use artistic concepts in your photography is a subject we teach on our workshops.
Today this page features A second image from our Little Known Grand Canyon workshop. It is a collage of 3 images. Natalie saw the Rainbow, we stopped the vehicles, jumped out, and photographed with whatever cameras we had in hand. Next thing I know the rainbow was gone.
The Grand Canyon
Only one seat left for the Fine Art Summit in Page, Arizona. Jeff Schewe, Alain Briot, Antelope Canyon. Is this your seat? Are you going to let someone else take it? Grab the last seat and register for this event now.
I started processing the photographs taken during our just-completed Little Known Grand Canyon Workshop. Here is one of my first images. It was taken on the first day of the workshop.
We just returned from the Grand Canyon after teaching the 2016 Little Known Grand Canyon Workshop. The Little Known Workshops are our advanced workshop series. They are open by invitation to Workshop Alumni only. Visit the Workshops page to find out more about how to participate and what is involved.
Natalie and I say a big 'thank you' to all of you who attended this unique workshop and made it a success.

We just announced the 2017 Navajoland Workshop. If you could not join us this year, or if you want to join us again, check out our 2017 itinerary. Navajoland is our second home because we lived in Canyon de Chelly for 7 and a half years. We don't just take you there, we bring our intimate knowledge of this beautiful land to you. We are the only ones who can do so because there is no other photographer who lived in Navajoland, photographed it and experienced it the way we did. You will truly be part of a unique learning experience, for both Fine Art photography and Navajoland.
The print of the month is available. Click here to discover which image I selected for May 2016.
There was a slight delay in publishing this month's Print of the Month because we were teaching the 2016 Navajoland workshop. The image featured above shows all of us having lunch at the bottom of Monument Valley in our 'special place.' We love to stop there on each workshop because it is so peaceful and beautiful plus we have shade and privacy.
Relaxing while having lunch between photo shoots is one of the best parts of the workshops!
May 4th - The 2017 Marketing Success Seminar-Part 2 - How to sell: first announcement
This is the first announcement for the 2017 Marketing Success Seminar. The 2017 Seminar will be the continuation of the 2016 Seminar. The material will be different and the focus will be on salesmanship, on how to sell both in person and on the web. Live role playing will be part of the seminar together with scripts that you can use to talk to clients, feature on your site or via email or social media.
In other words the 2016 Marketing Success Seminar was part 1 and the 2017 Marketing Success seminar is Part 2.
What this means is that if you attended the 2016 Seminar you need to attend the 2017 Seminar in order to get the whole story, get the entire system that will allow you to sell your work successfully instead of being left wondering why people love your work but won't buy it no matter what you do or say.
Registration will open soon and a special offer for 'early successful marketers' will be available. Right now I opened a pre-registration list. Signing up for this list is as easy as can be: just send me an email with the words '2017 Marketing Success seminar part 2' in the subject line and you will be added to the list immediately: email@example.com
Signing up for this list is free and there is no obligation to register for the seminar. Nobody will come pull you by the feet to drag you kicking and screaming to this event where you will learn to make serious money with your art and your photography! The only thing that will happen to you (if you attend of course) is that you will finally understand why your work has not been selling all these years and how you can make much more money from your work!

This study includes where they sell, what they sell, which limited editions they offer, how the editions are structured and much more.

Both are only available as part of this special offer and were never published before.

The Print of the Month collection: 155 different images and counting!
155 divided by 12 = 12 + years.
Print Value has increased dramatically over the span of these 12 years. Unframed, the first 16x20 mat size prints sold for $125 and the current price is $695. This represents an increase of over 450%. This percentage increase is the same for framed prints. That's a pretty good investment return.

This year's Summit takes place in Page, Arizona, home of Antelope Canyon, the Horseshoe Bend, Lake Powell and many other world-class photographic locations.
Our guest presenter is Jeff Schewe. Our focus is on learning how to master the technical and the artistic aspects of photography .
Registration and detailed information for this event is available now on the 2016 Fine Art Photography Summit page. Space is limited and some seats are already filled by previous participants and by students on our waitlist.
This means that you need to register ASAP to guaranteed your seat. This is particularly important if you are attending both the Summit and the field workshops because this combination is extremely popular and we have a limited number of seats for it.
Ten new online portfolios were added to this site today. You can see them on the Portfolios Galleries Page. These portfolios feature photographs taken in 2015 which have not been shown on this site until now.
The Online Galleries Page features a description of the process I follow to select images for online portfolios.
Of particular interest in these ten galleries is the one titled 'Mini Series' because it features an essay about what is a mini series. In this essay I explain what are the benefits of working on mini projects instead of on large projects.
