What Skills Does A Photo Editor Need

Have you ever wondered, “Have I got what it takes to be a photo editor?” Let’s talk about that for a minute. 

As a photo editor;
• you do not need mad editing skills.
• you do not need to be a Lightroom guru or Photoshop expert.
• you do not need to be artistic or creative?

All it takes to edit professionally is a basic knowledge of Lightroom, which I teach you in my online course The ABC’s of Photo Editing. With a little bit of practice and the right workflow, any one, and I mean any one, can become a photo editor.

What skills will I need to be a photo editor

To edit professionally you learn a skill. You learn to replicate and/or mimic the style of the photographer’s images. You do not have to come up with the style, or brand, or art of the imagery. An editor simply learns how to copy what they see and make the same changes to the images they are editing. 

In THE ABC’S OF PHOTO EDITING COURSE, I will teach you step-by-step how to do just that. The proven editing technique that I teach in the course, will give you the confidence you need to replicate any photo you see. Also, the workflow I teach you will give you confidence to take on clients knowing full-well you will be able to edit their images to look as if they edited those photos themselves!
