Fine Art Photo Artistry

With Brooke Shaden & Sebastian Michaels

"Imagine planning and staging your own conceptual photo shoots . . . Orchestrated around creative ideas and themes that inspire you . . . All while discovering your own style and crafting the finest artwork of your life . . ."

Announcing: The Long-Awaited Collaboration Between Celebrated Instructors Brooke Shaden and Sebastian Michaels!

Question for you:

When was the last time you took an idea that had you bursting with excitement . . . and then created a complete work of art around it?

Start to finish.  From the idea to the photography to the finished canvas.

Was it recently?  Is it often?

Do you sometimes wonder if you're busy creating images that you feel are nice enough to look at in the moment . . . yet sense they'll soon end up forgotten?

Or are you creating artwork that truly means something to you — something your audience will never forget — that has a real chance to endure?

Artwork that is not only FUN to create but engages your soul . . . and perhaps even defines your life as an artist . . .

Because you know what?  That's actually possible
to you.

In fact ... a whole new world comes available to you when you lay absolute claim to your own creative vision . . .

Each piece then becomes part of your emerging body of work.

Each piece takes its place in what can ultimately (and truly) become a gallery exhibition celebrating your imagination and mastery.

Each piece becomes a work you can take immense pride in — because it's entirely yours.

And that's where conceptual fine art photo artistry truly stands out.

But let's clarify this . . . and look at

The real meaning of Conceptual Photo Artistry:

Understand, this isn't about trick photography or about creating something "dark" or "surreal."

Maybe you'll want to explore some of that or maybe you won't.  

Those are just options.

What matters in conceptual artistry is exploring themes, symbolism, and ideas that touch something within YOU.

The truth is, everything is open to you here — a world of possibilities.

Conceptual art IS about ideas, but those ideas are yours to dream up and explore in any style you choose.

Not that it's easy.

Learning to think thematically and dream up great ideas ... and then bring them to life in an actual photo shoot ... and then craft a masterful image from the results ... 

This takes knowledge and practice.  Obviously.

Becoming an accomplished artist requires mastering a broad set of skills.

And this is where having an experienced mentor becomes so valuable.

Because your time is limited.  You want to make the most of it.

And an artistic exploration such as this will prove so much easier under the guiding hand of one who has been living that journey and sharing its secrets with aspiring photographers all around the world for the past decade.

Similarly, mastering the techniques of creating pro-quality artwork can be radically sped along with a skilled instructor walking you through every step of the process.

So you can surely see . . .

Talented, dedicated instructors can make all the difference in the world in how soon you succeed.

Which is why Brooke Shaden and Sebastian Michaels — two of the most celebrated and widely acclaimed  instructors today — have come together and created a complete system for you to employ in dreaming up amazing ideas all your own, and bringing them to life ... first in your journal, then in front of the camera, and then on the canvas.

And in a way, it was inevitable.

It had to happen eventually.

Sebastian Michaels heads up one of the most dedicated groups of digital photo artists on the planet.

Brooke Shaden conducts the most acclaimed and wildly popular live fine art photography workshops in the world.

It was only a matter of time before they came together.

When they did ... it was magic.

And this is why we have invited you here . . .

What Just a Few of Brooke & Sebastian's Students Around the World Are Already Saying . . .


“Brooke Shaden is brilliant photographer and Sebastian Michaels is a brilliant teacher.  What could be better?  In an age when much of new art is just bad, Brooke is excellent, ‘in tune,’ and inspiring.  And Sebastian teaches complex skills better than anyone I know.  Not only can he explain and demonstrate Photoshop well, he gets the sequence right, so we students are building real skills as we progress through the training.  In my best dreams, I could not have come up with a better course. Thank you, Brooke.  Thank you, Sebastian.” ~ Max Chandler

“Absolutely fantastic.  I'm loving the way that Sebastian and Brooke complete each other so well, with Sebastian’s immense and detailed knowledge of Photoshop and editing and Brooke’s painter-like artistic approach. I'm already feeling inspired and desperately planning out some new shoots!” ~ Andy Dench

“I have always loved Sebastian’s teaching style. His videos are pleasant to listen to, informative and effective.  I like that he repeats information because that is the optimum way people learn.  I think it is a fine idea to have Brooke talk about photos and then have Sebastian talk about the photo artistry.  It works well.  So far I'm really enjoying it.” ~ Gale Gronow

“This course couldn’t be any better for me.  Love Brooke’s work and everything Sebastian has built!  You have done an amazing job putting this together.” ~ Lynda Adlington

“I had seen workshops of Brooke before on Creative Live, but this one is different, more in-depth, more integrated . . . I can't imagine that there is a more comprehensive, better artistic Photoshop class in the world.”  ~ Marcel Deray

“I think LOVE sums up my feelings on this new training.  Thank you Brooke and Sebastian for all that you do to help and encourage others.” ~ Cheryl Schuh

“The Conceptual Fine Art Photo Artistry Course came along at the perfect time for me.  It is year end and I am evaluating my work for this year and setting goals for the next.  I have long been a fan of Brooke Shaden and have take quite a few of Sebastian’s classes — what a powerhouse duo. What really excites me is the photography portion of the course. I bought a new digital camera in May and am in the process of learning how to use it. In looking over the material for this class I think it is just what I need to jump start my creativity again and allow me to create some new and exciting digital art.” ~ Jean Hutter

“This course for me is one of the best ever.  I've already learned so many new techniques.  This is totally enthralling.” ~ Debbie de Juan

"Working with my own images (rather than stock) makes me feel like an artist.  I am excited about nurturing new ideas for shooting images for my composite creations." ~ Jerry McKay

“Soon as I heard this was available it took me all of five minute to sign on.  I’ve gone through the first five sessions of the course already, and I’m thoroughly enjoying it.  Brooke's work is masterful, and following it up with Sebastian’s additional breakdown of her methods and alternate ways of achieving them is really helpful.” ~ Greg Markstrrom

“I had no doubt that this course would exceed any expectations I could dream up, and it already has.  It’s also helped bring clarity to my long-time vision and will really help me with focus on my projects in 2020.” ~ Pam J Costa

“Even better than I hoped it would be!  Brooke, with her warm, welcoming style is so giving with all the knowledge and experience she is sharing.  But it's not just a glimpse into her world like you get from one of her wonderful books, this is Brooke taking you by the hand and walking with you through every step of her creative process.  Combine that with Sebastian's fantastic teaching style and together they are creating magic!  This course is teaching me to explore concepts and stretch my imagination in directions I have never dreamed of before.  I'm only just beginning and already I've gained so much.  I can't wait to keep going.” ~ Sharon Langford

“The course is very easy to follow. It is enjoyable and very informative, and the videos are done in short manageable sessions and very professionally produced.

“Loving the course. What I particularly like & what I’m looking forward to trying myself is how Brooke Shaden plans her projects, starting from an idea and then working out how to turn it into an image. My artistic compositions to-date have been created by getting inspiration from images, so I believe that this course could really help me take my photographic art to the next level.  I also love the fact that she shoots on a budget, which is more inspiring and more achievable for us less professional artists / photographers starting out.  I also just want to say a huge thank you to Sebastian because all of his courses are so incredibly, inspiring & life changing.” ~ Richard Stevens

”Not very many things get me so excited but this news was way too big. My first feeling was: ‘Big thanks to whatever forces brought Brooke and Sebastian together.’ I dove in right away, and I am truly enjoying the course — the way it is set up is brilliant … An incredible source of education.” ~ Soumaya Schnur

Answers to Some Frequently Asked Questions . . .


Q: How does this material differ from what is covered in Sebastian's Photoshop Artistry or Brooke's fine art photography courses?

A: While there's sure to be some overlap, not everyone has experienced both Sebastian's and Brooke's training — and no one has seen what happens when you bring the two together!  You can expect to encounter plenty of new ideas and (more importantly) exciting new ways of bringing out your creativity and passion for art.  Above all, you can expect this course to light a fire under you like never before.


Q: What if my style doesn't really "fit" with Brooke's work?

A: Brooke's style is actually quite diverse in itself (it's not all dark), but your work certainly needn't look like Brooke's.  Indeed, we're going to help you discover your own style.  The approach you'll learn here will help you tap into the ideas and themes that matter most to you and then enable you to take those ideas and themes and create the best work of your life.


Q: What if I’m a total beginner? How much experience do I need to have with photography or Photoshop?

A: This course was meticulously designed with both the beginner and more seasoned photo artist in mind. The step-by-step training you’ll receive here is easy-to-follow and allows you to develop your skills with ease.  So no worries.  You're going to feel like an expert by the end of this training.


Q: Do I need Photoshop?

A: It's certainly the program we recommend for creating works of layered conceptual photo artistry, and it's the program you'll see used in all of the training here.  But we also cover workarounds for Adobe Elements.  And in theory you can use any program that allows you to work with layers, layer masks, etc.  As long as you have that, you're going to be fine.  Because it's the ideas that matter most.


Q: Do I need an expensive camera?

A: Certainly not.  We do recommend a DSLR or mirrorless camera, although pretty much any will do.  Any simple entry-level camera will do.  And being able to shoot with a nicer camera and work in manual mode is a great advantage (and we cover this in great detail).  But we also discuss using a smart phone or point-and-shoot camera, and you can get by with either of those with a little practice.


Q: What if I have questions about the class?

A: No problem. We are always here to support you with whatever you need, be it a technical question or a more artistic inquiry. There will be email support as well as access to a welcoming and comfortable Facebook group where you can ask questions, receive help, and share your work if you like.


Q: I don't really use Facebook not sure I want to. Is that part an absolute must?

A: The Facebook group is completely optional and will not take away from your experience of the course if you decide to skip that part.  Think of it as a resource for the course. It's a place where folks can ask questions, share about their art and process if they are comfortable with that, and connect with others. Certainly not mandatory. But definitely a lot of fun.


Q: How do I view the course?

A: You can watch the videos on your phone, tablet, Mac, or PC — basically any computer or device while you're online and logged into the site.


Q: How much training is included?  And what if I can’t get to the course right away? How long do I have to access the content?

A: That’s one of the beauties of this course. You can sign into the site any time that’s convenient for you, and you have Lifetime Access to all of it.  Which is good, because this is the kind of material you'll doubtless want to revisit again and again.  Already we have nearly 12 hours of training in place ... with another 10 to 15 hours in bonus training rolling out over the next few months.  You are going to have a lot here to enjoy.  And you can take it all at your own pace.
