Paul Hassell isn't strictly a photographer. Paul is in the light business. An entrepreneur since the age of fifteen, a lover of solitude, and a loyal friend, Paul defies convention at every turn. You’ll walk away from talking photography with him, and you’ll have the sense that Paul is doing what he was created to do. This at-home-ness in himself and his craft becomes a kind of permission for others to find their vocations and live them. Paul found what makes him tick and organized his

About This Course

Who this course is for:

  • If you have ever wanted to use Lightroom, but it just seemed too overwhelming, this is for you.

What you’ll learn: 

  • Use the most powerful tools of Lightroom to carry out the vision you had when you were in the wilderness, making that great photograph.


  • Come with a free trial of Adobe Lightroom loaded onto your computer. Watch and enjoy!

What would you give to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Ansel Adams in the darkroom? To watch him wave his hand beneath focused beams of light as a reverse image of Full Moon over Half Dome burned into the paper’s silver surface. No two prints would ever be precisely the same. He was as much an artist here, in the darkroom, as he was in the field.

As much as I love to keep my teaching focused on in-the-field technique and creative inspiration, at some point you have to address the other HALF of the art form. This is a course for wilderness photography enthusiasts dedicated to that other half of the craft. I hope this course is as much like that experience next to Ansel might have been. Except that in the place of a darkroom, we have a lightroom. Instead of Ansel, you have me.

I have been shooting as a professional wilderness photographer for the past 15 years. I’ve been published in Time/Life, National Parks, Nature’s Best, and National Wildlife.

I’m a purist. I started my first decade in photography shooting with slide film. Photo clubs made sure you followed rules!

This is for aspiring outdoor photographers who wish to train their eye (and hand) at editing their RAW images with ease and joy. For those who wish to truly be artists in the room of light. And to do so with as much simplicity and organization as possible, so that you can get back outside taking pictures since that’s what caused you to fall in love with this in the first place.

I believe you will see that it isn’t about having profuse knowledge of every possible trick in the book, it is about acquiring a skilled hand with just a few essential tools.

In this course you will learn the essential stuff you MUST know so that your digital life doesn’t become a monster and try to eat you in your sleep.

I will walk you through recent images of mine made in the American Southwest demonstrating the tasteful use of the essential tools you MUST know in Lightroom. I intentionally leave out plenty of tools for two reasons. One, I only USE the ones that we cover here. Two, it does you no service to waste your time teaching you things you don’t need to know.

Our Promise to You
By the end of this course, you will have a clear understanding of how to use Lightroom for outdoor and nature photography.
