He is a great advocate of post processing and image editing and the digital darkroom and printing and has extensive knowledge of Adobe Camera Raw, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom and other products and as a Principal Lecturer teaches these as part of the Epson Print Academy and at learnonline.aspectsofexpression.com.
Michael is passionate about his subject matter and loves to share his knowledge with others. My photographic journey continues. It never amazes me how much you learn about what you don't know. Every workshop has the ability to put into to perspective what it takes to be a great landscape photographer. Each time in the 'digital darkroom' reveals limitations and opportunities in each image. It is a never ending journey.'
