As many of you may know, aside from photography in Albuquerque, I have a passion in education. I host workshops all over the United States, and even have one coming up in Michigan which sold out in record time.
Aside from my workshops in photography, I also have a massive tutorial series coming out that is the most extensive tutorial series available in the entire world. Not only does it highlight photo shoots where I take some of the best photographs in my entire career, but it will give you 10 hours showing you exactly how I did it.
But my passion for educating photographers doesn’t stop there. I also work for various websites to help teach and inspire photographers all over the world with various articles and lists. I wanted to purge together a list, a list of my absolute favorite articles I’ve written so far to date while working for Fstoppers, PhotoTuts+, and Retouching Academy. So please use this list as a guide, and I hope that you’re able to learn something from these articles and advance your career further.
