  • Nothing can suck the creative life out of a person faster than a confusing workflow and the complication of a backup strategy.  Start 2017 off with a resolution to improve your Image Workflow!


    In this class, I will walk through my typical workflow for several situations (photowalk, portrait, and product shoot).  Stop playing with a maze.  Get back to enjoying photography by creating an action plan that works for you!


    This is limited to 20 photographers

    No guests please (the room is too small). 

    The restaurant gives us the room free for those who eat lunch.  If you don't eat with us, please bring $10 cash.


    We will spend the first 30 minutes or so chatting and enjoying our dinner.  Then we will have the class for about 1 hour 30 minutes.  After that, those who want to remain for Q&A are welcome to do so.


    A few things that will be covered:

     - Why Lightroom is more than just "image editing"

     - Why I didn't cry when my hard drive failed

     - How I find that picture I took 2 years ago

     - Where I spend money, and where I don't.

     - Why, how, and where to backup your Lightroom catalog files

     - What hardware I use for backups, and why.

     - Automate Metatags

     - Useful Lightroom Plugins

    DON'T loose all your work due to a poor backup plan and failed hard drive -- or accidental deletions!  We will walk through a full 3-point backup strategy that you can automate.

    DON'T spend hours trying to sort, file, refile, and find images for uploading to all your favorite sites.

    DON'T stress.

    Class will last about 2-hours.  Those who attend in person will also receive a free coupon code to download my Photographer's Workflow eBook after the class.

    I hope to learn more about the hard drive backup and drobo. Something suitable for confined spaces. My 4 externals can be a handful. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
