My Film emulation pack is available as Lightroom Presets, Capture One Styles and LUTS.

Great film looks that work on digital are not easy and there's a lot of presets that call themselves this film or that but are nothing close.. Now, inspired by film and built on years of film study, I  created a preset collection that brings us back to beauty of the greatest films and beyond and works on PHOTO or VIDEO

Photoshop Actions

Alchemist 2 is our new and improved retouching actions system. It has everything from skin surface tools and glamour effects to color overlays and sharpening tools. It's incredibly easy to use, with dozens of actions that stack effortlessly. It's designed to do what you need done, how you need it done, with ease and style. Alchemist 2 will take your retouching to the next level and save you time in the process.

These game-changing actions are all about being a master of Light. They allow you to see the types and zones in your image with a click using the Total Map. Then you can select any zone and apply an adjustment manually or use one of the many effects for light, color, and style and apply it to the entire image or just the selected zones. It takes the power of luminosity making but makes it so much more simple, visual and powerful.

These actions are specific but very popular. They bring the closest thing to the darkroom-style platinum and cyanotype look with rich subtle hues and tones. It’s the closest thing you’ll find to their darkroom counterparts. You can’t get a look like this with presets. These are customizable tools for photographers that want artistic perfection in their digital prints.

This action collection takes on artistic looks and details. From amazing high depth effects to illustrative and portrait tools, it rounds off our actions by giving to a set dedicated to epic creative looks that would take a long time to create manually.

Photo Workshops with Gavin Seim

Exposed is the game-changing master class that teaches you everything you need to know to master light. From the Zones system, to metering, radials and more importantly understanding what makes light tick, there a reason Exposed won the coveted Hot One Award from Professional photographers of America.

Photo Perfect picks up where Exposed left off. Knowing light is not enough. You need space, position and line. You need composition. Photo Perfect is the composition workshop. Gavin takes you on a journey of hundreds of miles as we explore what makes the perfect photo.

Gavin's original retouching workshop focuses on giving you the skills for high level cloning, pixel painting and retouching in Photoshop. When you're done you'll be a little more of a painter with light and have the skills to editing for photos with a new level of refinement.

Where Sliders talks about what makes a good edit, Super Workflow shows you how to do that fast. It's a course you can finish in an afternoon that will save you countless hours in the editing room as you master the grid edit, learn to better leverage batch edits and just generally work faster so you have more time for the things you love.

HDR Magic is about understanding dynamic range no matter what software you use. We look at pulling dynamic range from single files, tone mapping in software like Photomatix and gaining a deep understanding of the difference between light and dynamic range. Once you know, there is no going back.

Sliders is a fast class about understanding what your sliders do and digging deeper into the nuances of editing. It mostly takes place in Lightroom but the principles will apply to nearly any RAW-style image editor.

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
