WHY CHOOSE A NATURE BY NATHAN WORKSHOP?
I have spent the last quarter of my life completely engrossed in photography. As a self-taught photographer, day in and out I research, and put into action techniques for creating captivating images. I want to share that with you.
As a specialised landscape photographer I can assist you in your own personal endeavours through what I have learned. There are absolutely no secrets kept in my photography workshops, and that's how I believe it should be. I also have no affiliation with any camera manufacturers, so all recommendations on equipment provided are genuine and in your best interest only.
I offer professional one on one - private coaching, small group workshops(up to 6 participants), and online workshops.

Bring your images to life using Adobe Lightroom, and/or Photoshop. These workshops can be run in the comfort of your own home, or at a public meeting place such as a local cafe.
If you are new to Photoshop and Lightroom, these programmes can be very overwhelming. I'll give you the run-down and start off with the very basics such as importing & exporting images, finding your way around the software etc. (we'll skip this if you're already using these programmes)
Image Format For Optimal Processing
RAW Vs. JPEG photographs. The difference shooting in RAW will make when post processing. (with examples)
Follow Along Edit
Together we will edit an image from start to finish (mine or yours). Through previous post processing workshops, I have found this to be the most effective process to learn how and when each of the tools can be used to achieve stunning results.
Recommendations, Coaching, Q&A
The remainder of the workshop will be spent coaching you on how to tastefully process your images. Ask as many questions you like.
What to bring:
You need to have your own laptop with Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom installed (Lightroom Classic is the preference). I recommend up to date versions to get the most out of this workshop. Ensure you have all the images you would like to edit on your computer ready to go, or on a memory card with you.
Online Workshops are run via Zoom video conferencing - a free application that can be downloaded to your computer.
