We wanted to take some time to look at our 6th year of operations for Visual Wilderness and wish you all a very happy holidays. Here are some of the highlights from this past year.
Visual Wilderness managed to survive 2020…so far.
2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, and that includes all of us here at Visual Wilderness. We’ve been forced to make major changes to our business model – including teaching online workshops from our own homes instead of filming in remote locations, cancelling events and gatherings, and finding ways to work together without actually being together. I am proud to say that we managed to survive this very challenging year. We also wanted to say thank you to the entire Visual Wilderness community – from our professional instructors to our customers.

EVERYTHING NOW MAKES SENSE I had given up on Lightroom due to its complexities, but after seeing Anne’s video course everything now makes sense. The numerous bite-sized video approach helped to get me started again. Anne’s voice is amazingly relaxed & easy on the ear. Lightroom is my go place when I am “cooking” my Raw photos, and now, thanks to the course, my family gets to see the photos I take.You guys did a fabulous job teaching the Essential Filters Course in a fairly easy and straightforward manner that we can comprehend quickly.

Kudos to both of you and I deeply appreciate it.CaliforniaI appreciate your combined abilities to teach me at my level on the photography learning curve.Santa Ana, CaliforniaJust finished your Hyperfocal Distance Tutorial and I must commend you on giving a crystal-clear explanation of this tricky subject, and for suggesting a workflow that makes good sense. Many thanks!Nova Scotia, CanadaToday’s webinar had great information for any experience level. Q&A section very helpful.Atascadero, USAThis course is exactly what I didn’t realize I’ve been looking for over the past few years: the videos, case studies, raw files, and explanations are what set this so far apart from anything else I’ve found. I have just started the course, but I can confidently say excellent job!Downingtown, PennsylvaniaI thoroughly enjoyed both of my Visual Wilderness Online Classes. They opened a new horizon for me and built on the knowledge I already have. I’m glad I have access to them for a year as I still have much to absorb…doesn’t happen all at once :)))Vermont, USAI felt the information was easy to follow and I learned a lot. Kate Silvia is very practical in her teaching style and processing and she she has good pace in training.Gainesville, FL
