Your Shadow-Hackers

I greatly enjoyed your Shadow-Hackers presentation yesterday.

Arturo Peralta-Ramos

Some photos fail, others are AMAZING! I needed to know why!

You may be thinking. Ugh, another crappy online webinar about things I already know. I'll explain why it's not!

I'm Gavin Seim, photographer and YouTuber. It was the early 2000's when digital exploded. I realized to survive in photography, I needed to stand out. I traveled, I paid. I hosted a podcast for years interviewing masters. I made videos documenting their techniques. I traveled with them. I wanted to become a Master of Photography! When I finally was awarded that, I realized that was only the start and most the Masters were not even talking about this stuff. So...

I spent years tracking down the best photographers on earth!

The things not taught in photo schools...

This story may sound dramatic, but honestly it 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 what I'm about to share. Because no one today is teaching it and I realized that had to change.

You're going to learn most veterans don't even know...

  • Cameras don't tell you the "right exposure".  I'll show you how to leverage that!
  • The real secret to dramatic photos is NOT actually the light. Here's how you do it.
  • I'll also show how to combine the art and science easily to transform your photos!

Spend years searching and "maybe" find these... Or I'll tell you!

Don't waste time. Back then I was digging in every corner trying to improve faster an understand more. Have you ever felt that way? Like you're missing a link to something important, but you're so close so you keep looking. Finding the information was not as easy in those days. But you are about to know.

When I grasped this 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. Over a decade later, I've made this class to make it simple for you too!

Do you want to be better?
The photographers that show up want to be the best. No replays here!

I created this workshop for photographers who are serious. The awards I earned from searching for these techniques were nothing, compared to what I learned and the way and have spent more years making simple. The 3 secrets that made me understand why some photos fail , and others other are 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 kept looking. I needed to understand secrets of the masters that they never complied into one course. 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!"


Better than last week's somehow.

You're about to learn something big. Not a watch 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

Who is Seim?

I'm Gavin Seim and I started studying photography in 1997.

As digital arrived, I went all in. I got to study with masters like Ken Whitmire. In 2009 I founded the Pro Photo Show podcast and eventually my YouTube channel. I started creating the professional developing presets when Lightroom V1 launched. Then Capture One Styles, Photoshop Actions and photography courses.

20+ years in the trenches earned me a Masters (M.Photog) from PPA. I've been featured, won a few awards and now I live in Mexico exploring the magical light of the South while creating new tools and searching for shadows.

You're rightly skeptical on online photography tools in a market filled with junk. That's why all sales are NOT FINAL here. I guarantee every tool and workshops 100% with a 31 day No-Regrets Guarantee!  

There's lots of videos and free stuff on the blog too. Look around. If you have questions I'm here to help, just send me a message | Gavin Seim
