Creative Visualization for Photographers Seminars


Visualizing the end result image is one of the keys to making a good photograph.

Creative visualization is the main theme in my presentations. It's also the title of my latest, and 36th book, Creative Visualization for Photographers.

My presentations (all are welcome) are not just slide shows of pretty pictures. For each image, I share a digital photography tip or a Photoshop/Lightroom technique - or a fun story. And speaking of fun, I like to make all my presentations fun and informative experiences for all.

Bring your questions - and know that no question is too simple or too basic. I'm there to help. What's more, everyone who attends one of my presentations is a student for life. That means attendees can email me questions anytime.

If you can't make a workshop, you take a virtual workshop with me on-line via one of  KelbyOne classes.

You will also find on-line classes and e-books in my own on-line store.
