Josh Cripps is hands down one of the leading video tutorial instructors I have come across. For many months I have scoured the internet trying to find someone who could teach me basic, intermediate and advanced techniques in Photoshop. Well spoken, clear and concise instruction, easy to understand and a great sense of humour. Thanks for all your effort in putting these tutorials together Josh, I look forward to all the ones I don’t yet own!
I appreciate your combined abilities to teach me at my level on the photography learning curve.

I love the Visual Wilderness Video Courses! And you have great customer service as well 🙂
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.
Hey Josh– I’ve been watching lots of Photoshop tutorials on Lynda. com and I learned so much more from yours! I think they are really wonderful. Even better, I love the fact that I could download the files and watch them over again at my convenience. Thanks a million.
Histograms Exposed is a great tutorial too – I learned some stuff myself, as I didn’t realize you could even get a live view of your histogram before you took a shot! Love learning new techniques! 🙂
Jay and Varina do a great job of instructing through your video’s. I’ve brought some other big name Landscape photographers but Visual Wilderness Video Tutorials are much better quality!
Excellent training. I love the way you folks transmit your volumes of knowledge to us. Easy to learn and follow. Beautiful job.
Their easy approach, pace, and personalities make the learning process much easier and enjoyable.
I’ve just finished watching your tutorial for the third time and wanted to let you know how amazing it was! I live on a very small island in the middle of nowhere & don’t get to many photography workshops… so the way I learn is through tutorials. Yours are, by far, the best I’ve seen. LOVED the way you broke it down into little episodes – this gave me the chance the watch one video & then work on my own photos to get it into my head & then move onto the next one!! You’ve made them very entertaining & super-easy to follow along – I just loved it, Thank you!! 🙂

It’s difficult to find the words to express how impressed I was with your Photoshop & photography knowledge and your body of work!
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!

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.
Hi Josh, being able to pause and re-run sections was invaluable.. Also, the pace of the tutorials seems to suit me and I liked the way you didn’t edit word slips – I felt like I was listening to a live course with the benefit of being able to go back and review. Two or three hours spent following your course has left me comfortable in the Photoshop environment, which I have never been before despite many hours of reading or watching other tutorials. You do a very fine job.
CLEAR AND CONCISE – I have just viewed segments 1 – 3 and wow, it is great! Not too much information in one hit, very pleasant to listen to, clear and concise! Your course is just what I have been looking for and I feel ready to launch into Lightroom now. You sure make it seem a lot more user friendly for the beginner.
Please don’t change except to continue to bring the best possible learning experiences to anybody that wants to be the best possible photographer and learn to understand and practice photography to the best of their ability.
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.
Having Jay and Varina as instructors opens up a totally new perspective to Landscape photography.

The fresh perspective and experience you bring to your video courses was very uplifting to me and since I have taken the course my images have really improved. I also have a renewed desire to shoot again. I continue to watch them over and over and find hidden gems in them each time I do.
