Hello, my name is Chris Parker, and I started shooting professionally in 1989.
In 1991, our art school had these funny little boxes called a Macintosh Classic.
Oh, and it had this thing called Photoshop installed.
It was neat! Yes, I know, nobody uses “neat” anymore.
But, I bet you’ll remember me for my wit and will return. Or not.
In 2007, Adobe introduced Lightroom, and it transformed my wedding photography business.
No more editing for days on end.
After 30 years in the business, I no longer shoot professionally.
Instead, I much prefer to give back to the photography community and share my knowledge.
You’ll find my site filled with free tutorials on photography, Photoshop, Lightroom, business advice, and much more.
And, I have the ‘ole Youtube channel too.
The real secret to photography + editing
There are too many out there that claim to have the “secrets” for shooting and editing.
Well, I want to let you in on a little secret that others are going to hate me for…
…there are no secrets!
You already have everything you need to fulfill your creative vision.
You just need to know how to properly use what you have.
It doesn’t matter if you’re shooting with a smartphone, a $500 digital camera with a kit lens, or the latest and greatest $5,000 camera.
If you don’t know how to use your gear, understand light, how to improve your photos with composition techniques, then your photos are still going to suck.
And, if they do, then no amount of editing is going to make them better.
There is no magic formula. No secrets.
Just trying to keep it real.
I’m going to lose a lot of readers by keeping it “real.”
But, that’s o.k., because I believe I’ll gain more by not feeding you bullshit.
Like you, I have to make a living.
Especially since I no longer get paid to shoot. Which brings us to my advanced tutorials.
These tutorials go into more depth than the free stuff.
Step-by-step instructions that are often backed up with worksheets, checklists, and/or assignments.
It doesn’t stop there, though. I’ve also included hundreds of Lightroom presets and Photoshop actions to help you edit properly and faster.
I had a choice, create courses, and offer for up to $100 each or give away everything at one low monthly rate.
I chose the latter.
I’d rather help as many photographers as possible vs. a select few that can afford courses at $50 – $100 each.
That would be over $1,000 with the existing library.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a hobbyist, an aspiring pro, or a pro photographer… I can help you achieve your creative vision.
Oh, and if you’re a pro… I can help you to succeed… financially.
We spend thousands on gear over our lifetime.
Why not get the most out of it, learn how to use it to take better photos, and learn the proper way to edit.
