Personal Online Coaching - Photo Editing

Learn to edit your landscape and cityscape photos like a pro - from a professional photographer with many commercially highly successful images.

I get questions about the "secrets" of my post processing all the time, so I decided to offer personal online coaching for those photographers, who really want to bring their post processing to the next level. The content of this coaching is highly individual and will be tailored to your existing knowledge, requirements and wishes. You will learn to create dramatic and unique imagery, while also sticking to the highest quality standards for noise-free and sharp pixel-perfect results, which look amazing as a large print. We can also cover other topics such as feedback to your portfolio, social media and website.

Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned professional, any level is welcome.

Coaching content

The content of the coaching is tailored to your wishes, questions and level of knowledge. There is no fixed program like with a typical photography course. Here you will find a list of possible topics that we can address together. Before the session simply let me know the topics that are most important to you. We remain flexible during the coaching and can switch to a different topic if desired.

  • As a beginner learn basic editing steps in Lightroom to turn a dull RAW file into a bright and colorful photo
  • Learn how to balance and shape light and color in your photos using more advanced Lightroom techniques for a professionally looking result
  • Get to know basic Photoshop tools for simple tasks such as removing people and cleaning up your photos
  • Learn advanced Photoshop techniques for full manual exposure blending using luminance, color and painted masks
  • Master the time blending technique in Lightroom and Photoshop
  • Make your drone photos look like high-end camera shots
  • On request receive valuable feedback to your own portfolio and/or social media channels
  • On request receive feedback and improvement suggestions to your photography website. As a professional software developer with many years of experience, I built my website myself and can give you numerous tips on topics such as SEO, loading time optimization, web design, e-commerce, custom Wordpress coding, etc.

Coaching is available in English and German languages.
