In this video I’ll show how I clean my equipment after each and every trip. From lenses and camera bodies to tripods and filters I’ll show you how to keep your gear in top notch condition. Links to the cleaning products I showcase from the Residual Oil Remover to the sensor light are below.
I just finished an epic 2800 mile road trip from Portland to Monument Valley and back while filming a new photography course that will be coming this year to ON1 Plus (free for all members). In this video I’ll share a bit more about the course as well as some stories and lessons learned on the road. Official trailer coming later this month.
In this video I talk about developing your creative vision by taking some time to connect with your subject. To do that I share some insights as well as a few ‘behind the image’ stories to illustrate the principles I’m highlighting.
In this video I define what I mean by a master photo. Then I go on to explain how I organize, archive and backup my library of master photo files both locally in my studio as well as offsite.

I’m excited to share a review of a company’s product that I’ve been using for quite some time as my main photo & video storage and backup solution. I have a brand new Drobo 5D3 that I’ll go over and show you how I use it and ON1 Photo RAW 2018 together in my professional workflow.
Thanks to everyone who voted on the reverse photo challenge survey to pick a mission for Matt and I. The results of the survey are in. It was a close vote, but you chose to send Matt and I on a Backyard Challenge. We’ll each get to work finding something walking distance out our doors to capture in a new way and put together videos about the process. Stay tuned…
Backyard Challenge Prevails
Results are in and Idea 2 The Backyard Challenge was a narrow winner.
Thanks everyone for registering your choice. We’ll set to work visualizing something near our doors in a different way and bring you videos about the process.
That’s right. We’re asking you, the Plus Community, to challenge us once again. This is where you give Matt and I a mission and we each set out to accomplish it while creating a video to show you the process. Some of you may remember last year’s reverse Noonday Challenge. The one where you guys overwhelming voted to send Matt and I out creating images in the worst light of the day. It was a sort of uproarious revolt against our advice in critique sessions and the galleries for all of you to work in better light. (Matt’s High Noon Challenge video / my High Noon Challenge video). It’s a new year and we’re excited to have you challenge us again. Vote for your favorite mission below by February 2nd.
Send us your RAW files!
By popular demand we are kicking this series back off with a call for submissions from the Plus community. The other coaches and I will select from your RAW images and edit them our way using Photo RAW to produce Your Photo Our Look videos throughout the year. It’s easy to submit. Simply send us a link to your RAW file on your cloud storage service of choice like Dropbox, Google Drive, Apple iCloud, or any other. We’ll be collecting them from the Plus community all year long for this video series.
The address to send those links is:
I want to thank everyone in the Plus community for such a fun and productive past year. It’s been my privilege to coach such a passionate and engaged group of photographers all working together to improve your art. You guys are incredible!
As amazing as 2016 has been, 2017 is going to be even more exciting. We’ve got four brand new courses coming, new coaches, and of course all the critiques, challenges, and interactive content that the Plus community has come to expect.
Blake Rudis is kicking things off with us as a guest coach for all of January. The emphasis will be on workflow and editing. Buckle up, it’s going be fun!
I’ve had a lot of questions from Photographers in the plus community (and those photographer’s family members) about what would make a good last minute holiday stocking stuffer.
