HOW-TO | THE PHOTOGRAPHY TUNE-UP | ENTRY
EBOOK BY JAYGOODRICH | PRICE: $5.00 OR FREE
Has your camera been sitting all alone in a dark closet, in a remote location of your house? Neglected. Forgotten. Allowed to become home to multiple species of arachnids? Did winter or some unique event send you back into your den for a long, dark hibernation away from the joys of picture taking? A hibernation that has your head filled with miscellaneous cobwebs too? Maybe like that classic convertible hiding under a cover in the garage?
What’s the first thing that your dormant car gets before you head out with the top down? That’s right, the almighty tune-up. Maybe a fresh battery, new oil, new anti-freeze. Then you create some plans to travel, perhaps to one of our National Parks; a great place to drive through with your now completely tuned car. You reach into the closet for the camera…and all those spiders attack. While you’re recovering in the hospital, you realize that you don’t remember a thing about taking a photograph beyond a lame social media snapshot. How do those camera controls work? What’s the objective of a compelling photograph?
What do you do? You simply add our Photography Tune-Up to your cart to get the latest revised version of an e-book that Jay has created to help you remember not only what you love about photography, but how you go about creating and capturing your vision.
And although this guide will not get rid of the spiders in your closet, it will inspire you to keep your camera out longer even as summer ends and fall begins. But don’t forget about winter! And if you think you need more help than this guide offers, then just head over to our Workshops to join us in some of the most iconic photo locations on our planet. We will teach you how to design a photo rather than just simply clicking your shutter at everything your eyes encounter.

EBOOK BY JAY GOODRICH | PRICE: $5.00 OR FREE
Our How-To Build a Compelling Photograph series is designed to bring your photography skill set to a higher level one step at a time. It will provide you with a means to design your photos without following a common rule based scenario.

We now live in a world driven by technology. In May of 2013, the sheer volume of images getting pushed to social media was staggering. The online photography forum Petapixel cited a 60 second video from another online community BuzzFeed that highlighted the numbers of what is getting published online every 60 seconds. It is completely overwhelming to know that 27,800 images were being uploaded to Instagram every 60 seconds, Facebook will see 208,300 uploads in the same timeframe, giving them 9 billion uploads every month! Although these numbers are monstrous, they really have no bearing on the quality of that content. What do you think would happen if we decided to produce quality, compelling work that is better than the masses?
We have based the foundation of these books on the presentations that Jay gives during his photography workshops. This photography eBook includes 75 pages and more than 65 high quality images detailing and supporting each element, concept, or idea discussed.

THE DIGITAL IMAGE ONLINE TUTORIAL KIT
EBOOK/VIDEO TUTORIAL KIT BY JAY GOODRICH | PRICE: $5.00
The sheer volume of content spinning around the web in today’s world is staggering. The development of the digital camera led to the camera which resides in your pocket, in the form of an iPhone or other smart device, has changed the way we see and experience this planet. Which in turn has led to this moment: how do we even begin to manage the images that we create? In the days of analog, churning rolls of 36 exposures through mechanical cameras was the norm, amassing a huge catalog of photos took years, if not decades. Now, humans are responsible for uploading 5,000 images per second to apps like Instagram.
What happens when your mother calls and wants a photo of your son or daughter that you took somewhere around a year ago (she doesn’t remember exactly when and she doesn’t remember where), but she does remember that it was in a field of tulips. And the print that she wants you produce needs to be a bit warmer than the photo she remembers seeing. Could you find it? Could you adjust the colors to get her the look she is speaking of? If you were using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom to manage your digital photos you could complete the whole task in a matter of minutes.
