I could probably fill up an external drive with your videos alone and have recommended them to all my photo friends. Bottom line, in my opinion, you have the BEST INSTRUCTIONAL videos on the market. Your presentations are always excellent and easy to follow. Your pronunciation and speed are also excellent. I have taken my post processed pictures to a whole new level thanks to you.
- John Gilbert
I have enjoyed your videos so much and learned so much from them. I absolutely love your processing techniques and your photographic style. Your images have inspired me tremendously. Thanks for all your efforts. I'm not sure how you do it all but, nevertheless, I'm glad you do!
- Richard Brewer
The TKActions Panel has re-ignited my love of the art and with the help of Sean’s videos, I have been burying myself in learning the techniques. I have been struggling to regain enthusiasm for photography since I transferred from film and the darkroom. However, learning your techniques has brought my photos to life again – thank you, from the bottom of my heart!
You guys really hit it out of the park with the latest release of Tony’s panel and Sean’s training/tutorial video. The panel is impeccably designed and Sean’s video is extremely comprehensive. All of this at such an incredibly fair price. Thank you for the effort you’ve both put forth through the years, in providing tools to make us better artists.
- James Kirkish, The Shuttered Image www.theshutteredimage.com
I have now gone through the various videos I have purchased from your website. I wish to state my total satisfaction with them, in relation to the content, level of detail and clarity. A rare examples of outstanding training instruments and well worth the money it costs. And I am not known for paying compliments easily ...

I’ve gone through all of your Luminosity Mask videos now…twice. Not because I don’t understand them, but because they are absolutely incomparable. 100% meat with no fat, organized to build on the previous tutorials perfectly. You are very clear, concise, and to the point in your explanations. You have a good lecturing voice as well. Keep sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm, and may our paths cross one day.
- Jay Reeves
I wanted to send a quick thank you and to say that your tutorials are amazing. I was wanting to learn more about luminance masking so I started with that series of videos, and after watching them and realizing how clearly everything was explained, I purchased your others. Even going back to the basics/workflow progression was great - as a self-taught Photoshop user there were lots of little things that I picked up from your videos and my entire editing process has changed for the better. I was reluctant to purchase video tutorials given the abundance of free videos on YouTube but yours truly are the next-level.
I wanted to thank you very much for the wonderful video tutorials you developed on luminosity masks and associated techniques. I recently purchased Tony Kuyper's great luminosity mask set but was having a difficult time fully understanding how to best use these amazing tools. Your tutorials were extremely helpful and insightful. While I expect it will still take some time to learn how to use luminosity masks to their full potential, I believe the videos will help me get there.
- Tamer Ghoneim www.tamerghoneim.com
I wanted to write and thank you for making the luminosity tutorial videos. I purchased Tony's Action panel awhile back and kind of understood the concepts, but after purchasing your videos, I am finding out how much I didn't know. They are very well done, and I love that I am able stop and rewatch portions when I need to. I am excited now to start using these methods more.
- Andrea Linderman
I got The Complete Guide to Luminosity Masks and I have to say it's probably the best video tutorial I've ever used. I really appreciate how you broke out the subjects into quick demonstrations so that I can go back and revisit sections that I need help with later. Your videos really teach how to bring back RAW images to the reality we perceive in person. I'm so grateful you took the time to put these together. Your videos not only expanded my photoshop skills but my artistic vision.
- Cody Wilson www.lightontime.co
Sean’s videos [The Complete Guide to Luminosity Masks] are...an excellent accompaniment to not just Tony's luminosity mask actions but also Tony’s initial PDF notes. The series takes each aspect of Tony's notes and covers it again via a video tutorial and Sean has a good, logical way of guiding the viewer through the use and application of the masks. The videos are broken down into short segments so it's also easy to jump around when you want to re visit something later on without hunting through hours of footage.
- Alex Hare www.alexharephotography.com
I just made the most influential purchase I ever made in my life as a photographer / digital darkroom enthusiast. I appreciate your elegant way of explaining things and making sense all the way through with ease.
- Mofeed Qasem
They [The Complete Guide to Luminosity Masks videos] are awesome and I have learned so much. Sean, apart from the great images, the structure, procedure, process and explanation of the videos is outstanding.
- Denis Hogan
I've had The Complete Guide to Luminosity Masks videos for almost a week now. They are fantastic! I believe that I may finally have the keys to better understanding of Tony's concepts. Thanks!!
- Greg Waddell www.gregsphotostudio.com
The Complete Guide to Luminosity Masks is absolutely “first class.” The series starts with a basic understanding of luminosity mask selections/adjustments and gradually builds up to some super advanced techniques. Sean’s teaching talent provides an easy understanding of the luminosity masks techniques and action panel in a nicely paced video series. It will take your post processing to a level you would never believe you could achieve.
- Dan Charnitsky, www.dancphotography.com
Thank you for the best tutorials and personal follow up I have found! After going through photomatix, On One, etc.. I have come home to the best post- processing available, all due to the generosity of individuals such as you, Zack Schnepf and Tony Kuyper wiling to share your knowledge and save many of us so much time for such a great value.
- Gary Thompson
You've made valuable additions to the original [workflow] tutorials. I like how you provide multiple techniques to accomplish the same effect: for example in the local contrast lesson, you demonstrate the effect of curves adjustment layers, USM, and high pass sharpening, and then mention which methods you prefer and why. Also providing all of the practice images used in the lessons and a master image with all layers is very helpful.
- Justin Krug
I only discovered the work of todays guest early in 2011, and immediately purchased his video tutorials on Extending Dynamic Range in Landscape Photography. To say this was a life-changing discovery is not over-stating the truth.
- Alister Benn, Available Light Images Podcast
After 40+ years as a passionate "old-school" photographer I can say without question that Sean and this set of tutorials he has created were the key ingredients in my transition to the, "New World"...and in no small measure! Previously , I struggled the entire time; thousands of gorgeous exposures, but no matter how many darkroom hours or photo lab try-outs I invested in, every print fell so far short of my vision that I continued to shoot simply for the fun of the capture alone. If you have the passion but lack the results to prove it, these tutorials will change your LIFE! Sean has the gifted ability of explaining complex concepts in a straight-forward and easy to understand manner. I can't thank you enough Sean.
- Larry J Carpenter
I've gone through Sean's video tutorials, and all I can say is "Wow." They showed me how to do things I was already doing but now I can do them faster, easier and better. I was even more amazed with the things the tutorials showed me that I could do in Photoshop that I didn't even know were possible. All of this resulted in me being able to produce images, for both the web and print, which were superior to what I had been doing before. The techniques have really made an improvement in my images.
- Jeff Colburn
Sean, thank you for taking the time to create these tutorials and make them available to other photographers. I found them concise and very understandable. I wish I could put into words the enhancements I have made to my workflow. Additionally, the workflow changes have greatly affected how I now shoot in the field.
- Gary Olejniczak
This [Extending Dynamic Range] has got to be one of the best tutorials I have seen regarding this subject! I especially like the videos covering Channel [Luminosity] Masking which has been problematic for me for quite sometime.
- Lowell Franga
Useful and easy to follow videos. I like the idea that I can go back and review the steps whenever I want to.
