Over the last couple of years, we have been developing a partnership with the American Photographic Artists (APA) | NY Chapter by presenting Lightroom Guy workshops and Tech Talks. The NY Chapter is very active and has a thriving membership. We are happy to not only provide Member Benefits but to offer several, ongoing events and activities planned for the coming year. All events and activities are open to members and non-members alike, with APA Members receiving preferred pricing. You can learn more about APA and join here!

APA is the country’s leading non-profit advocate for photographers of all levels. They organize events, negotiate benefits for members, hold seminars, promote members’ work, organize photo contests, and much more.

APA Branded Workshops

No doubt, the crown jewel of the partnership is our branded Lightroom Guy workshop series. Together, APA and Lightroom Guy will be offering a series of ongoing workshops to teach practical Lightroom skills.

We’ve seen first hand how difficult it is to teach real skills when it comes to Lightroom. The bottom line is that Lightroom is a very complex and fiddly program!

Over the course of several years, we have been developing and perfecting our own methods for how to best teach Lightroom in a workshop setting. We are now proud to offer that expertise in Partnership with the APA NY Chapter.

Quarterly Tech Talk Events

Lightroom Guy and APA Tech Talk at Hasselblad

Being a photographer in the digital age is no simple thing! In order to help photographers stay up to date and to get help dealing with their own complex circumstances, we have initiated a quarterly series of evening seminars, called Tech Talks.

At every event, DA and I will deep dive into particular topics, like spec’ing out new computers, back up strategies and choosing peripherals to help bring to light what might be otherwise shrouded in technical mystery. Following the presentations, we will open the floor for an extended Q&A session where attendees can get help in dealing with their own questions and technical circumstances.

Join us for our next Talk which will focus on how to choose and plan for buying a new computer & accessories.
