What Can I Help You With?

Hey Friend, Brendan Here.

My goal around here is simple. To help you unlock your creativity with actionable tips to level up your photography and photo editing. I’ve worked with clients all over the globe creating travel campaigns, branded content, graphic design projects, and more, but getting to this point was not easy.

I always struggled with learning new editing programs, design techniques, or ways to capture better photos. Fast forward many years, and I created this site as a resource I wish I had earlier in my career. A place for creatives like you to get the answers you need in plain English, without the technical jargon that’s straight-up confusing.

It’s time to have FUN creating again.
