A great landscape photo is the sum of many parts. Vision, planning, execution, post processing. Each plays their role in creating a compelling landscape photo. Making The Shot videos take you through the entire photographic process. I share with you my entire process from envisioning a photo, planning the shoot and sorting out logistics, on location thoughts about composition and camera settings, and the final in-studio post processing work.

Join me on a photo trip to Joshua Tree National Park. Majestic Joshua trees, rock formations and desert landscapes are all on the menu. Your download includes:

  • Making The Shot video: An 80+ minute video detailing the entire photographic process. See how I research locations, plan the trip, and sort out the logistics.
