I thoroughly enjoyed your shadow hackers

I thoroughly enjoyed your shadow hackers webinar tonight and your passion shows.

Chris Whaley

Photographers that know Shadow Hacking are naturals! We're even giving you free stuff just for showing up to the workshop.

I want you to see and know. That the magic is not from flash, natural light, better lenses or new gear. 

You may be thinking... "Ugh, another boring "guru" webinar telling me stuff I know. But this is a photo workshop like no other. I've been doing this for 20 years and no one ever taught what I'm about share with you. This is the only class that teaches this and no matter how little or how much experience you have this will change how you see.

I believe in this process so much I'm going to give it you free and.
Just for showing up on time I'm be giving attendees more free stuff that everyone else pays for on my site!

I'm Gavin Seim, PPA Master Photographer, YouTuber and host of the Pro Photography Podcast.

I got to learn from the best photographers in the world thru workshops, my podcast and endless traveling. From Kevin Kubota and  Ken Whitmire to landscape masters like Rodney Lough. None of them knew Shadow Hacking like this. But learning from all of them helped me discover it.

"Go to the bathroom, and no camera" Ken told me!

After 15 years, I saw in the dark...

It took me 20 years to find and create the process of this photo workshop. 
It challenges everything you know about photography!

This story may sound dramatic, it kind of was! You may be where I was 15 years ago. You may be newer, or more advanced. But you're here because you want to be BETTER! It took me so many years advanced photography study to discover it.

Have you ever taken a great photo but not know why it worked so well. Or took a shot and expected a great photo, only to be disappointed? I count count how many times that happened to me. Not anymore

It was the early 2000's when digital blew up. I knew to survive in photography, I had to stand out. I traveled, I paid for classes. I created a podcast and studied . I wanted to become a Master of Photography and when I finally did. Then I realized that was just the start so I kept digging. I wanted a system In could explain to anyone.

A photography workshop that lets hack the shadows...

  • That the secret to dramatic photos is NOT actually light!
  • That cameras don't tell you the right exposure. Here's what they can do!
  • And how to combine it all in an easy way to instantly transform your photos!

So, why aren't the other photography workshops teaching it?

Honestly, I don't know any other photo teachers and workshops that know this process. But it's not taught.

It's not that they are not amazing photographers. I've worked them in my real world workshops and podcasts. They just didn't spend the 20 years searching for a way to simplify the process and discover shadow hacking.

I was digging in every corner trying to improve faster an understand more. Have you ever felt like you're missing a link to something important. You're so close so you keep looking. Finding the  right information is not easy, even today and this photography workshop changes that.

That time in the trenches is how Shadow Hacking was born.

When I started grasping this I was blown away. I called my friend who was a long time rep for a major camera brand and said... why did no one tell me this It felt so strange because I would never see light and shadow the same again. I was pacing around my studying looking at best and out the window and all I could see was the movement of light and shadow. 

It felt so simple and logical that it was frightening. And that was the year I started documenting and trying to make it simple. The next year I started filming the award winning Exposed workshops. But the process was not complete. Over a decade later, I've made this class to make it simple for you!

It's not being taught because the masters don't know it!

Even the world's top photographers are not teaching this. Because even the masters don't even know this process.

This is a photography workshop for photographers who want to excel. The awards I won searching for these techniques were nothing, compared to what I learned along the way. Now I've spent more years trying to simplify and it all comes down to this. To finally understanding why some photos fail, and others other are emotional and AMAZING. 

I remember discovering something early one early on, standing in the window of my studio. I asked my friend

"Why did no one tell me this about photography?"

He laughed and said... "They don't teach that stuff anymore!

I needed to understand secrets of the masters that they never put into master classes. Techniques to get great photos every day, not just when things go perfectly. No tool or software makes you a great photographer. Knowing how top use them right does.

I started shooting large format film. I was understanding tones, the truth about light meters and finally the truth about SHADOW. It changed everything and pushed me to become a PPA Master Photographer and create my HotOne award winning Exposed workshop. But it was not enough.

Now it's 2022 and photographers are still not being taught this. We're going to change that toghethor. I've compressed this into a LIVE workshop that makes the 3 secrets of shadow hacking simple and challenges everything you know. And once  you know. You will spread it.

I came back to my mentor, the legendary Whitmore and said. 

"This changes everything. I don't know if I can see normally again"

Ken laughed because to him it was normal. The man that had given me only the film holders to a 4x5 camera and told me to go sit in the bathroom. He didn't think about it like this because it was normal. I said...

"You know it Ken, but photography is not taught this way anymore!"

This was very useful information.

This was very useful information. I'm a total newbie and apparently, I've instinctively been trying to do what you just showed us all. Thank you

A LIVE workshop, not another nonsense marketing replay!

I started with film in the 90's. There was no redo button. But really I was was part of the digital generation. So when I saw these keys I went to work creating a method to bring what only the best of the film photographers knew, combine it with the study and emotion of what we inherited from the painters and make a simple formula works equally well for digital. 

If you listen. This will change your photography faster than you ever thought possible. I'm going to show you, for free. 

This is a real LIVE class not an automated webinar. There will never be another just like it. The class will be 70-80 minutes and there no re-play. So set your calendar.

I can't wait to see you there. Gavin Seim

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 publications 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 there's a lot more to learn.

Wanting something calmer, I moved to Mexico in 2017, exploring the magical light of the South while creating new tools and workshops as well as video and the Pro Photography Podcast.

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! There's lots of videos, podcasts and free things here. So look around and if you have questions I'm here to help --
