July 2nd
The July Print of the Month is available. This month I selected a particularly colorful photograph to contrast with the black and white image I selected for June. This print is avaialble at a 20% discount until the end of the month.

June 1st
The June Print of the Month is available. Just like last month, I am making the Artist Proof available at the same price as the open edition print. The catch is there's just one so whoever claims it first gets it. There will be no announcement when it sells. We'll keep this as quiet as this image ;-)

My eBooks are a safe and inexpensive way to study Fine Art Landscape Photography during these days of social distancing. You get a significant discount if you order several at the same time. Check out my eBook collection on the eBooks page.

April 13th
The April Print of the Month is available. Visit this link to see which images I selected for April and to place your order.

The Artist Proof for this image is available. I made only one Artist Proof and it is numbered 1/1. I was going to make this Artist Proof available during our April Workshops but since we had to postpone them I am making it available online.

I normally price Artist Proofs higher than open edition prints but I am making this one available at the 20% Print of the Month open edition price. Shipping is included and if you live out of state (meaning not in Arizona) there is no sales tax so you only pay the flat 20% off Print of the Month price. A unique opportunity to invest in a unique print!

The current Corona Virus situation is affecting all of us forcing us to postpone workshops and causing us to stay home. On a positive note this is a good time to process photographs because this is something we can do at home without exposing us to unnecessary risks. For this reason we are making all our Mastery Workshops on USB/DVD available at a 20% or higher discount, depending on how many you order at the same time. All the details of this offer are at this link.

The White Sands Workshop was a success with fantastic weather and great light. Thank you to all the workshop participants whose passion for photography made this workshop a success. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Corona Virus workshop policy update
An update to our workshop policy was posted to each 2020 Workshop Description page. If you registered or plan to register for a 2020 workshop please visit the description page for your workshop to see this update.

The Very Little Known Abiquiu Master Class was announced last night and was sold out by the time we woke up this morning. This is our most exclusive workshop, open to only 3 participants, and the class that offers the highest level of instruction and support. If you are curious about it you can find out the details on the 2021 Very Little Known Abiquiu Master Class page. You can even let us know you are interested in the 2022 Master Class :-)

2020 Online Portfolios

January 25th
I added an 11th online gallery to the 2020 portfolios. It features photographs from the Arizona car auctions we attended last week. If you follow my social media pages (Facebook and Instagram) you already saw some of these photographs. If you do not you can discover them now on the Portfolio Galleries page.

This gallery is organized in the chronological order we visited the car auctions. However a secondary organization system is used. I created a number of black and white photographs that are intended to be expressive rather than descriptive or souvenirs. These are placed first in each auction section.

The Online Portfolios section was updated today with 11 new Portfolios. Take time to peruse these new collections of images which include not only my personal work but also photographs of Natalie and I and photographs taken during our workshops.

Testimonials

I just wanted to let you know that I am very much enjoying the Mastery DVD training videos which are truly excellent and well worth the investment. The workflow is comprehensive and logical and all the little tips are invaluable.The more of the DVD's that I see the more I am enjoying them and the more I get out of them. I am very surprised at how much really useful information and great tips that I am getting out of them.

Too many training videos focus on the "how".......move this slider to the right etc, rather than on the "why". Your comments on adjusting colour by adding and subtracting other colours are really great and not something I have come across before, but they really make sense and make understanding the whole process much simpler.

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 DVDs. 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.

Layers Mastery Workshop on DVD owner


I'm working my way through the DVD--just finished half of it--and had to tell you how delighted I am with it. I relate to your practical and aesthetic approach so completely!

It's helped me with my understanding already, and your delightful accent is an added bonus. The illustration are great and a huge help. Thanks for this!

I am enjoying the new layers DVD very much . I think this is a fabulous product and the information is very valuable. For me, perhaps the most valuable part is the discussions of the master files.

Mike
Layers Mastery Workshop on DVD owner



Thank you very much for putting so much of your knowledge into a form
that we can all learn from.

Your Marketing Mastery Workshop on DVD has not only taught me a lot about marketing,
it has also inspired me to try even harder to sell my work.

I am excited about holding my own exhibits in the near future!

Peter Ahrens, Australia


Of all the photography workshops and classes I've attended, the Route 66 experience opened the door to unexpected forms of creativity.  

I am very happy with the images I produced on that trip.  In fact, I ended up with more interesting images from that workshop than from any other.  

Thanks again!

Joel Geffen


I am still on a high from my wonderful time with both of you. 
It was very, very special to be with you in the Navajo country.

Ginny, Colorado

I am about half way through your new book and very impressed. 
You have done a great job with it and I am finding the concepts very helpful.
Thank you for writing such a great book.  I am really enjoying it. 
Your photo of the stars rotating around Polaris is wonderful.

Doug,

The Layers Mastery Workshop on DVD has helped me excel my work in a way that no other book,
tutorial (NAPP member) or seminar has. Your down-to-earth teaching style and your willingness
to share your techniques is unmatched in this business.

Thank you Sincerely

David Wolfe


Marketing Fine Art Photography is The Best photography business book
I have EVER read!

I'll make this short: if you are a student, an emerging or a professional photographer just wanting to improve your bottom line, read this book. The author is personable and helpful and the text is enjoyable.

Christine Goldbeck, Middletown, PA



Although I do not envision selling my work anytime in the near future I bought Marketing Fine Art Photography figuring there would be some useful info that I could apply in the workplace somehow (personal brand, etc).

I have so far read Part 1 & Part 2 (Chapters 1-8) and I can say that the book is more than I expected (not that I have low expectations for any book from Alain based on all the previous ones).

I found that these first 8 chapters contain much information that causes me to think differently about my work and artistry in general and gives me energy to do some different things in the future. Good stuff Alain!

John Motzi, Downingtown, PA
