    Course Description

    For Berthold, photography is a hobby. But unlike most hobbyists, his wife isn't complaining. This is because microstock has paid for his 1Ds Mark III, his 5D Mark II, his set of L lenses, the models he hired and the studios he rented.

    Find out how Berthold picked up photography from scratch just two years ago, and got to where he is today with microstock photography.

    Kickstart your stock collection with a portfolio review by Berthold, learn about the stringent inspection process and how to sail through the technical requirements.

    About the instructor

    Berthold Trenkel is an exclusive microstock contributor at iStockphoto. He has also been invited to contribute to Getty Images. His portfolio can be viewed at http://www.istockphoto.com/btrenkel.

    Hi sprintist,

    Thanks for your question.

    From the response so far, we're not too concerned at this moment about the minimum number required to start the class. We're more concerned about limiting the class size to a good number so that each participant receive the best attention from Berthold.

    So far three persons have signed up for the class, so we're pretty assured that the class will proceed as advertised.

    Feel free to post/pm/email us if you have any other queries!

    And if we are too many - happy to split and offer another workshop.

    I really want to make this interactive; and go over your pictures; plus some Photoshop etc. All with the target of stock and inspection process.

    Because a few of you asked - here some clarification and more details what we'll do during the workshop

    • The stock inspection process - what are all the typical mistakes, how to recognize them, and how to fix some of them in Photoshop; or better how to avoid them from the start
    • Basic workflow - A-Z. From how to organize your shoots/files and make best use of tools like Lightroom/Aperture to
    • Simple touch-ups for stock: what to do, and what to avoid. Plus some high-end retouching to 'open your eyes' how the real pros do it
    • A checklist for the inspection process - and it's application. We'll discuss some sample pictures from the participants. I'll be asking each participant to submit 10 hi-res pictures for critique (this will also cover - what's is 'good=sellable' stock). Ideally submit both - your original RAW file, and your 'best and final' jpg. After you sign up; Photoscholar will give you instructions where/how to submit; and I'll bring them to the workshop with suggestions/critique
    • Plus the 'ideal equipment'/setup. From computer, software to camera, lights, etc.
    • Q&A -
      anything else you have on your mind


    What we will NOT do
    • this is not a full blown Photoshop training nor
    • a model shoot (no camera needed) nor
    • how to use your camera or how to use a studio, lights, etc.

    These 3 are workshops/courses in itself - we can do that another time; and Photoscholar can help you

    If you have particular questions that you think we should cover, let me know now - and I'll see how I can build it into the workshop and share examples, do some hands on demos, etc.

    You ideally bring your laptop with Photoshop, if you have Lightroom/Aperture, and some of your pictures (RAW, jpg) to play with.

    Less than 10 days to the workshop - and please don't just sign up last minute.

    • because slots are limited
    • we'll also review as part of the workshop real life pictures for stock: your own. And to make it effective, it's best you submit them early

    Home stretch. Last chance to sign up. I think I've got all your sample pictures from the so far signed up participants - and really looking forward to the session on Saturday.

    Just came back myself from a shot in the US. Here the first 'unedited' versions. More examples and 'how to' - at the workshop.
