Intricate Details Action

The Intricate Details action makes your images sharper by adding more contrast to your photos and applies some dodge and burn to leave a painted texture look. It is best used on heavily edited composites as all the small details are brought out with the wider range of colors.

Magic Matte Action

The Magic Matte action uses a multitude of color grading effects without taking away the most defining details from your images. This action works best with darker composites as it makes darker areas more visible and gives an illusion of texture.

  • You are looking for a more efficient way of touching up images.

As a photographer, your images are a visual representation of your work...

They are the first impression acquaintances and clients will get of you when they consider booking your photography services. What do your images say about you?

In today's, oversaturated photography market, it can be hard for you to stand out as a photographer. Being better than your competition requires hard work, good customer service, and most importantly, eye-catching images that put you above the rest. 

I built my photography business on my unique vision and specialized compositing skills. Now I'm here to teach you how to do the same so you can apply what you learn to your own photography business. 

What happens when you add compositing to your photography expertise? Well, you'll attract more clients and have them come searching for you instead of the other way around. You'll also be able to raise your cost per session, which ultimately leads to you generating more money and booking more quality clients so you can decide to work less, make more, and have extra time to spend with your family or doing other things you love.  

The workflow action is an opportunity for you to grow as a professional and an investment in your photography business. You will get out of it what you put in, and when you pick up the rhythm and start mastering the art of compositing on your own, not only will you feel proud, your business with thank you for it. 

I know as a photographer, your business means a lot to you, that's why I've made it my mission to help other photographers become successful. When you couple your passion for photography with a business mindset, the sky's the limit. 

Are you ready to start compositing today? 

Your clients are counting on you so give them the best you can offer in record time with a more efficient workflow. 


Best wishes,
