ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR
My name is Chris O’Donnell, landscape photographer and online educator, and I’ve been using Lightroom and Photoshop to process my photos for quite a few years now (PS since 2006, and LR came along a few years later).
I don’t create courses that tell you what you “should” or “should not” do. Instead, I pull the curtain back on my creative techniques and workflows, revealing my own perspective and experiences after 10+ years immersed in landscape photography – and leave it up to you on how this new knowledge should be used for enhancing YOUR Lightroom & Photoshop workflow.
The goal of my courses is to get your creative gears grinding and provide you with the tools and knowledge to develop your own techniques – both in the digital darkroom and the field. Not only is this more satisfying creatively, but sets you up for future success by relying on your own skills as a photographer.
