Announcing the new Advanced Marketing Mastery Workshop on DVD
In 2006 I released the first Marketing Mastery Workshop on DVD. Today, 7 years later, I am getting ready to release the new Advanced Marketing Mastery Workshop on DVD.
It is called advanced because the contents of this new Seminar goes way beyond the contents of the first one. It is also up to date with today’s economy. I published the first Marketing Mastery Workshop on DVD in 2006. That’s 7 years ago and a huge amount of time in the world of marketing. A lot of things happened in those 7 years. The most significant is that. . . click here to continue reading.

The 2013 Fine Art Summit
is being officially announced today. This is the 11th Summit and it takes place in Page, Arizona, home of Antelope Canyon, the Horseshoe Bend and many other world class locations. Our Guest Speaker is Jeff Schewe. We will be focusing the tutorials on image processing and on Printing. We will have an Epson Printer and a selection of printing papers at the Summit. The field workshops are to Navajoland, including Monument Valley, Canyon de Chelly and many other top locations.
This super exciting schedule, combined with the fantastic locations we will be photographing, means this event will sell out quickly.

If you need time to check your schedule email us and we'll hold a seat for you for a couple days. Click here to visit the Summit Page with all the goodies and details of this unique event.
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 dvd. 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.
