You are onto something with the shadow hacking

I really think you are onto something with the shadow hacking. I enjoy hearing your workshops.

Arturo Peralta-Ramos

A whole new paradigm to learn.

I really enjoyed the presentation today. A lot to think about. A whole new paradigm to learn.

Daniel Carlin

No other workshop that changes your photos so fast. I'm even giving you free stuff just for showing up!

You may be thinking this is another repetitive "guru class" I promise you it's not! This workshop is going to put you years ahead.

In the 20+ years I spent creating this, I've found no one teaching Shadow Hacking. I don't care if you photography weddings, fashion, streets or nature. No matter how little or how much experience you have, it changes everything in your photos.

When PPA awarded me with the degree of Master Photographer. I realized that it was just a start and I needed to master what no one else was doing. 

It's so important that just for showing up I'll be giving you free bonus stuff that everyone else pays for on my site! I'm Gavin Seim, Shadow Hunter, 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 taught Shadow Hacking. But learning from all of them helped me discover it.

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

... after 15 years, I saw in the dark!

It was just great! 

Thank you for an excellent explanation of shadow hacking just now.  It was just great! 

Thank you for an excellent explanation of shadow hacking just now. It was just great!

Super insightful and inspiring

Thanks, Gavin, super insightful and inspiring! Already applied this in my photos.

It took decades to create this process!
It changes everything and I'll make it simple!

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.

Hack your photography, no matter you skill level!

  • Learn how he secret to dramatic photos is NOT light!
  • Learn how cameras don't tell you the right exposure!
  • Learn to combine L&R brain and transform your process!

Photography should be felt?

We're in a fake Ai world now. Setting yourself apart is hard. Shadow Hacking is not taught anywhere else!

I was digging in every corner trying to improve 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.

You have now found it. Shadow Hacking will change the course of your entire career as a photographer.

Light is expensive... But Shadow is FREE!

When I started grasping this I was blown away. I called a 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 could never see 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 the process. The next year I started filming my Hot One award winning Exposed Workshop. But the process was not complete. Over a decade later it all came together in Shadow Hacking!

Why is no one else teaching this!

Even the world's top photographers are not teaching this. They are amazing photographers. I've worked with many of them in my real world workshops and podcasts. They just didn't spend the 20 years searching for a way to simplify the process of truly feeling in a photograph.

This is a photography workshop for photographers who want more. The awards I won searching for my techniques were nothing, compared to what I learned along the way. I spent years trying to simplify how to feel photos 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...

"Photography is not taught this way anymore!"

A LIVE workshop, not another 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!

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 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! --
