Raw Development, Image Editing and Asset Management

About The Course

This in-depth online course is designed to help photographers in creating professional, impactful images fast. If you want to make the most of your RAW files and optimize your photo editing workflow - this online course will take you through all the stages: Organizing, Raw Developing and Non-Destructive Editing to striking photos.

As a bonus, this course also includes over 1.5 hour Hands-On Training Module: four different editing scenarios - four complete Capture One 20 Sessions with Raw files and all layers for you to study at your own pace.

This course of over 50 video lectures and 11 total hours of self-paced study, will take every photographer, whether new or experienced through the absolute essentials of managing, editing and producing professional images.

I have been in a photography business for over a decade, and in that time I have both failed through making avoidable mistakes due to a simple lack of knowledge, and also seen great successes through implementing the right strategies. In this course, I have put together everything that wasn't there for me when I first started out to create 'the course I wish I'd had' when I started  - so that you can take what works for yourself without wasting your time on painful mistakes.

This course will suit absolute beginners to the pros, but will also be a highly beneficial refresh, for anyone already working with Capture One Pro. You can find all of the modules and lecture titles in the Course Curriculum at the bottom of this page, and if you have any questions about this program please contact me directly on

Thank you for this. You are truly an amazing lady. Now I really understand sessions.  I have never owned a course where the customer service is so responsive. You should be commended.

"Fantastic program, I've learnt a lot about color grading - this was the weakest point in my image editing process. Thanks."

Lisa Stefanova


"This course is all you need to get professional, high quality images. I had some experience with Lightroom and Camera Raw editors, but never fully committed to any of them. Capture One is for me a complete game changer. This course helped me to systematise my knowledge, improve my skills and at last produce consistently quality photos. Still learning, but with this course it is finally a clear path."

Mark Derricsson


"Finally useful course that helps taming the C1 monster! Well structured, plenty of detailed step by step instructions, knowledgeable instructor. She has a bit of an accent, but it doesn't bother me personally. Great supporting RAW files."
