About The Class

AFTER THIS CLASS YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Expertly edit a photograph
  • Enhance your photography portfolio
  • Think like a photo editor while capturing images

ABOUT JARED'S CLASS:

In this class, you’ll learn how to improve your photography portfolio. With just a few critical lessons, you will be on your way to making better decisions in your photography and post-production that will not only enhance the value of your portfolio of images but every photo story you tell, every job you shoot and every family vacation you share, all you need is a shift in your thinking.

The best photographers know the importance of great photo editing. In fact, the difference between a good photographer and a great photographer has less to do with camera skills and more to do with their selects (i.e. what they show). The very best show very little and the unimpressive photographer can’t wait to show you every image they took today. All of the greatest photographers either have a photo editor making the decisions or are great photo editors themselves. Learning how to think like a photo editor from the camera through the selection, editing and publishing process will change your photography forever.

  • All levels of photographers
  • Photographers who want to better their post-processing skills
  • Photographers looking to create a portfolio
