Raw File After Photoshop

100% Risk-Free with my 30-Day Guarantee

I will teach you my full Photoshop workflow for creating original and imaginative landscapes.

I've been asked to create a start-to-finish processing video for many years now...so I finally sat down and pulled the curtain back on my complete Photoshop workflow, step-by-step!

With over two full hours of comprehensive instruction, I leave no stone unturned as I walk you through every adjustment I make to process one of my most popular landscape photographs...from the pure raw file to the final piece.

Look over my shoulder as I guide you through the best creative tools for landscape photography...showing you my very best Photoshop techniques for enhancing the atmosphere, color, detail, and light (and as always, 100% fluff-free).

If you find yourself creatively uninspired once you hit the digital darkroom and searching for original and exciting ways to process colors and tones....then this is the video for you. 

Here's some of the advanced Photoshop skills you will learn:


Easy steps for accurate selections that hug every contour of your horizon line...allowing for an effortless blend of your brackets.


Learn how I combine luminosity masks with blend modes, groups, adjustment layers, and other Photoshop tools to create highly intelligent, powerful enhancements to your colors and tones. 


Learn how to enhance the mood, light, and texture by intensifying the environment. I'll show you how I strengthen sun glows, water reflections, and other atmospheric qualities that amplify the nature of a coastal sunset. 


Step-by-step walkthrough of my advanced light painting workflow that enhances the natural light and detail....creating more depth, interest, and texture.


Learn every step of my signature 5-part color grading workflow that has taken me years to develop and refine. Strengthen your color harmony and quality with adjustment layers, blend modes, and luminosity masks that will create more intense, brilliant hues.


Take adjustment layers to the next level and use them to their full potential. I'll walk you through my most advanced techniques for enhancing depth, enriching colors, and strengthen detail with these adjustment layers: color balance, curves, selective color, and color fill.

New to Photoshop? I have you covered!

Advanced Photoshop workflows such as exposure blending, dodging and burning, or color grading may seem daunting at first glance....but in reality, they are incredibly simple workflows to execute once you learn the four basic principles of Photoshop: layers, masks, smart objects, and luminosity masks.

I know how important these concepts are to your Photoshop learning...which is why I've added not one, but two free bonus courses that teach you these principles in an easy-to-follow, sensical way.



Layers are the powerhouse of Photoshop, especially for landscape photographers. Join me as I give you the full walkthrough: what layers are, how to use them creatively, and A-to-Z coverage of layer masks for advanced processing.

  • Add the incredible power of adjustment layers for targeted processing (like contrast or color grading).
  • Master the brush tool, which has a different set of rules than the adjustment brush in Lightroom. 
  • Smart objects are the key to maintaining the non-destructive environment inside of Photoshop. Learn what smart objects are, how they’re drastically different than normal layers, and how to use them the right way…because there are many wrong ways to use them!

11 Video Lessons, 2.5 hours of bonus training!



Learn how to “paint with light” by using luminosity masks to tailor your adjustments. These masks are massively useful for every single tool in Photoshop: sharpening, blending, dodging & burning….you name it, luminosity masks can make it better!

  • Learn what luminosity masks are and the easiest way to create them.
  • Discover the specific strengths of luminosity masks and how they greatly improve the quality of your processing.
  • Step-by-step walkthrough of my dodging and burning workflow with luminosity masks.
  • Learn advanced exposure blending with luminosity masks for a completely tailored blend of your brackets that is 100% seamless!

"I don’t normally give testimonials, but in your case, it was well deserved.

My photo processing has improved significantly as a result of following the techniques you explain. In part, that is helped by you providing copies of the files you work with in the videos so that we can copy what you do. The best way to learn, is to do!
I’m also impressed by the level of personal support you provide. Plus, your response is very quick, usually within a day (despite the time zone difference between the USA and the UK!)."

I really think you’re going to enjoy this course because workflow lessons are extremely important to your complete learning experience.

It’s a lot like fitting pieces of a puzzle together: regular Photoshop lessons provide you with the tools and the techniques, but the workflow videos are the blueprints that tell you which piece goes where...or rather where and when you should perform a particular technique to your photograph.

The best part about this workflow is that it uses no presets or actions – meaning you will actually learn step-by-step how to process intense, breathtaking landscapes...which will strengthen your creative skills instead of relying on automation to do the work for you.
