I started photography when I was 12 and earned a Masters in photography. But that degree means nothing, results do! I was tired of low quality tools backed by nothing. So I built a system for photographers that's 100% GUARANTEED! These are the original Lightroom presets, Photoshop Actions and Capture One Styles since 2007.

Welcome to the LIght Tribe

I'm Gavin Seim. I was born in WA and started studying photography in 1997. I started working as a pro (using that word loosely because I sucked) using film at age 16. It was no nearly so easy to find training then. Sometimes I beat my head against the wall until I figured stuff out.

As digital dawned I went all in. I studied with masters like Ken Whitmire. In 09 I founded the Pro Photo Show podcast. I started promoting tone-focused editing. When Lightroom arrived, I started developing tools to make editing and workflow better.

20 years of study and photography around the country earned me a Master of Photography (M.Photog) from PPA. I got to see my workshops and tools featured in publications across the industry. Once I even won the prestigious HotOne award for my "EXposed" light and tone workshop.

Wanting something calmer, I moved to Mexico in 2017. It's a land of magical light. I'm here now exploring light and trying to master my weak areas. I make videos of that for my YouTube channel, sharing what I learn. I hope you'll stick around and be part of Light Hunters Tribe... Gav
