Discover perfect imperfection

Pictorialism is about creating photos that are art and feeling. It was key in the development of photography and is hard to create digitally. So I made a system for photos with soul. Photo that belong in galleries and your walls.

From early pictorialist icons like Stieglitz and Coburn to color portrait masters like David Hamilton. Pictorialist lets you create the deep art edits easily, plugin-free, with total control. For results not simply possible in Raw editors. 

Pictorialist may be the most insightful tool you've used in years. Running from digital fakery. Without hesitation staking it's claim in life, in motion, in the photograph. The focus, the drama of shadow and the allure of documenting beauty your way.


Hours of work in seconds

Pictorialist works by mixing atmosphere and tone in any image. Not fakery and Ai, but my mixing the tones you captured. Those who only edit in RAW editors can never achieve looks this deep, giving you a huge advantage.

But you don't have to be stressed about doing it in Photoshop because it's so simple with Pictorialist. Pictorialist creates layer and mask blends that manually would take hours. If you even remembered how each time. They are that wild

We all have photos that we loved when we took and never worked out. Be amazed when you see how a Pictorialist brings the emotion you have felt but could never get in an edit. Start creating your own fine art edits. The results will be incredible.

Sometimes photos today are too sharp. Imperfect details are ok. They exist in real life. Pictorialist lets you use them like the masters and bring atmosphere and tone.

You have Photoshop. Now activate its power in your photos with Pictorialist! Watch the hands on video at the top to see how.

I'm Gavin Seim. I'm a Shadow Hunter

I started photography in 1997 at age 12. I'm a PPA Master, Hot One and Loan Collection winner and Lightroom expert. My images, tools and workshops have been featured in books and throughout the industry.

I was born in WA USA. I started working pro (using that word loosely as I sucked) using film at age 16. It was not easy to find training then and often I beat my head against the wall to win. 20+ years in the trenches earned me my Masters (M.Photog) from PPA but it taught me that's just the start.

I moved to Mexico in 2017, exploring the magical light of the South, creating tools and workshops as well as the Pro Photo Podcast. There's lots of videos and free things here. If you have questions I'm here to help

You're rightly skeptical of photography tools in today's market. That's why all sales are NOT FINAL here. I guarantee each tool and workshop with my 31 day No-Regrets Guarantee! --
