Masters Academy

After teaching digital imaging for over 20 years, one of the most respected names in the business has launched his own private academy dedicated to helping users master the tools of their digital trade: Photoshop, Lightroom and Photography. Through weekly streaming video lessons and a private, members-only online discussion group, Ben will push Masters Academy members to the next level of understanding and competence. The whole idea is to go beyond what you can learn through most video-based classes by making a full year’s commitment to continuous learning.

Ben Willmore

Photoshop Hall of Famer, Ben Willmore, has taught over 100,000 Photoshop users on six continents. As a “technomad” he lives full-time in a 40′ tour bus, traveling and photographing all over the United States. A senior engineer from NASA once said that this man gave the best technical seminar he ever attended. That same year a computer-phobic who had been struggling with Photoshop for years proclaimed that “He takes the Boogie Man out of Photoshop!” This seems to be Ben Willmore’s special gift; he has an uncanny ability to connect with users of every level and mindset; whether it’s first-timers taking their first sniff of Photoshop, or razor-sharp nerds and nerdettes who are on the fast track to technical illumination. The common echo that Ben leaves in his wake seems to be “Aha! I finally GET Photoshop!” Read more
