Do you have 1000s and 1000s of photos on your computer’s hard drive just sitting there? Do you have folders upon folders of pictures with no info attached and you can’t remember where or when they were taken? You know you have dozens of great pictures of that special person somewhere but there are only a couple of good photos that you can use. Once you find them you still have to organize and then edit then and you just don’t have the time. Now what . . .?
My next Masterclass will dive deep into Digital Asset Management and proper image workflow so you can find each frame, quickly and correctly. I will provide you with software skills and the tips and tricks you need to stay ahead of that digital disaster.

About the Photojournalist
Behind the lens: recording history; influencing public opinion; an eyewitness to life and death.
John Lehmann is one of the top photojournalists in North America. He was, most recently, named Canadian photojournalist of the year in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
Lehmann brings an array of talents to his work: the insatiable curiosity that marks all the best journalists; an artistry that sets his images apart from the billions of other pictures; a quiet intimacy and flair for inventiveness, which is what brings his work to life.
Most of all, he is not simply a photographer, he is a visual journalist. And the principal that underpins everything is accuracy and honesty, both to the people he reports on and the readers to whom he reports.
