You offer an incredible photography learning experience. With two terrific instructors who are great to learn from, and fun to be with, I couldn’t ask for more.
What I really like is the fact that you not only explain haw to do it but also why. Congratulations, this was a real pleasure for me and I have learnt an awful lot. Regards.
Jay and Varina Patel’s Ultimate Landscape Photography Course has been a great resource to help me in my journey towards taking great photos. Their presentations are in the terrific clear, simple, engaging style that they use in their workshops. Their content is comprehensive and includes handy tips and information that I haven’t seen elsewhere on the net.
I LEARNED MORE THAN ANY OTHER LIGHTROOM TRAINING I HAVE TAKEN – This course has been SO MUCH help! I learned more from your lessons than I had learned from any other Lightroom training I have taken. I like the short, targeted lessons, which allow me to practice each skill right away. The short lessons are also great for me, because my brain can only hold so much new information at one time. AND I can easily find any topic, if I need a “refresher.”
I have been trying to understand Hyperfocal Distance since I first picked up a camera about a year ago. I have had several people explain it to me, but I never understood it as well as I do after watching your tutorials. They are so clear and easy to understand.
I have tried many hyperfocal distance tutorials, but none explained so well as you did in The Ultimate Landscape Photography Course. Thanks again for your help!

I am thrilled that this weekend I got to put to use what I have learned so far. Thanks Varina for explaining hyper focal distance, it even worked with my little Olympus OMD M5 with the kit 12-50mm lens. Thank you both for explaining how to use layers.
Several of us were trying to figure out why your tutorials are so excellent. We came to the conclusion that your years of teaching school must be the reason. You’re an excellent instructor and make it easy for everyone to grasp these often complex concepts. Thank you Sean!
The Hyperfocal Distance Course is excellent and enlightening. It will definitely come in useful when I go to the Yading Nature Reserve in China next week on a photography trip.
I would like to complement Jay, Varina and your Visual Wilderness associates for making such well thought out photo training & guidance videos. They are topical, have a clear structure to help in the learning process and good quality.
And thanks for making such awesome Videos Courses! These have been a huge help in my photography development. 😉
Visual Wilderness offers outstanding Educational Products quite different from what is on offer in the landscape photography market.
GUIDES THE VIEWER ALONG WITHOUT DROWNING IN EXTRANEOUS DETAIL – An excellent primer on Lightroom directed at the novice. Anne’s narrative cuts right to the heart of the program and guides the beginner along by showing how things work without drowning in extraneous detail. Anne is very wise in that she shows how to turn off many of the program’s functions that can overwhelm the novice and, instead, concentrates on those tools and functions that beginners will most likely need and actually use. I highly recommend Anne’s Lightroom Video Course to anyone just starting with Lightroom.
This is great! Been wanting to understand and apply Hyperfocal Distance in my photography.
Everything you have taught in your video series has made me a better photographer, editor, and a photo printer. I still have a lot more to learn, but you really helped to set a good beginning foundation for me.

I thoroughly enjoyed the video courses by Varina and Jay Patel. Their clear presentation style and real life examples of their teaching enabled me to rapidly understand and put into practice what they were teaching. Their style is quite personal as if you were on site with them. Excellent photography in the examples supports the learning experience. Histograms were always a bit of a mystery. Seeing how to use them to improve my “in-camera” results will enable me to get the results I see in the field.
I advanced by leaps and bounds in both my photography skills and Photoshop skills. Varina and Jay are great teachers!
There’s so many free videos out there it’s easy to be overwhelmed. The Ultimate Landscape Photography Course breaks down the fundamental knowledge you need for landscape photography and shows you how to use that knowledge in an actual photo shoot. That makes it a lot easier to figure out where you’re going wrong when you’re not getting the result you’re after. It’s worth every cent!

I have been using filters for many years and still learned a number of helpful tidbits of information I didn’t already know or hadn’t thought about from the Essential Filters Course. The material is presented in easy-to-digest segments of video that you can sit down and watch all of back-to-back, or if you only have a few minutes you can watch them one at a time. The way the segments are divided makes it easy to go back and find specifics you want to review.
I didn’t know Histograms could be so easily manipulated with such awesome results. I purchased this a few weeks, ago, and have viewed all the videos five or six times. Having been a public school teacher for 40+ years before retiring, I know what makes excellent teaching, and you, two, are some of the best instructors I’ve seen in the field of photography. Keep up the great work, and keep adding new additions to your ebooks and videos collections.
Where have you been, Joshua? I’ve spent thousands of dollars in video tutorials like this one. Your video tutorials are the best I’ve ever purchased. It is very easy to absorb and understand. Keep up the good work! I will definitely recommend your video tutorials to all my friends who are learning Photoshop.
I have been an outdoor photographer for 25 years and really enjoy tuning in to Varina and Jay’s tutorials, they are leading the way with their technical knowledge and philosophy on composition, what a refreshing approach in an ever changing industry!

You guys did a fabulous job teaching the Essential Filters Course in a fairly easy and straightforward manner that we can comprehend quickly. I have already learned a lot about different tips and tricks just by watching some of your video courses. Kudos to both of you and I deeply appreciate it.
