Photography is a two step process - capture and post-production. How much post-production is up to you.


What Is A MasterClass?

The MasterClass is a collection of informative articles, movies and class critiques that can be viewed and read as often as you like. Explains Peter, "It aims to share essential techniques and experiences I have collected over many years, not just from my own work, but from that of the many famous photographers I have interviewed and worked with for the magazine." View the movies, read the articles and you will quickly learn techniques and tricks to advance your own photography. Nothing is held back and you will not only see where Peter works, but how he crafts and edits his images in post-production.

Not every one wants to make such dramatic changes as these, while others will think the edit could have 
been taken further. With the Landscape Photography MasterClass, you can decide how much is right for you.

What's In A MasterClass?

There are 18 MasterClasses in the program. Each MasterClass comprises six components.

  • FINE ART takes a hero photograph and explains exactly how it was created, from capture through to post-production.
  • CRITIQUE explains how to improve images that were submitted by earlier class participants, so you can get some real-world feedback.
  • KNOWLEDGE discusses the techniques and equipment needed to produce top quality landscape photographs.
  • POST-PRODUCTION takes one or two techniques from a program like Photoshop and describes in detail how to use them.
  • ACUMEN discusses the business side of landscape photography, whether you want to be a full-time professional or just earn some pocketmoney.
  • JOURNEY describes a photogenic location for landscape photography, a place you might want to put on your own 'to visit' list.
  • The six components in each MasterClass are presented as three movies to view (around 5 to 15 minutes each) and three articles to read.

When Does The MasterClass Start?

You can start a Landscape Photography MasterClass today! You have a lifetime subscription, so there is no hurry to get through the material. You can take your time to view and read at your own pace, and return as often as you like to refresh your memory and perhaps re-discover tips and ideas. You can complete the MasterClass in a couple of weeks, or take 18 months (one MasterClass per month). Realistically, there is a lot of material and information within the MasterClass, so while it's possible to read it all in a week or so, becoming a great landscape photographer will take a little longer. However, we guarantee that if you engage with the material over the next 3 to 6 months, you will be a significantly better photographer.

Who Is Peter Eastway?

There are a lot of great photographers and teachers in the world, so finding one that suits the way you think and take photographs is important. You want to feel confident that what you're being taught is not only factually correct, but is practical. In other words, does it make sense and can you use it? This is where the Landscape Photography MasterClass has a great advantage. The course has been written and presented by Peter Eastway who has specific expertise in all these areas:

  • Peter has been a professional photographer for over 30 years. He is an AIPP Grand Master of Photography and the past Chairman of the AIPP Australian Professional Photography Awards.
  • He has won the Australian Professional Photographer of the Year Award twice, and the Australian Landscape Photographer of the Year three times. He has also won over 200 awards in Australia, UK, Europe, USA, New Zealand and Japan for his work at a professional level.
  • Peter is also the publisher of Better Photography magazine, so he has great communication skills. Not only does he know how to take and create amazing photographs, he can explain his techniques clearly and simply.
  • Peter was asked by Lonely Planet to write a whole book on landscape photography in 2002.
  • You may have seen Peter presenting online for Phase One medium format digital cameras and Capture One raw processing software. He also featured in Tales By Light, a television series about professional photographers which you can view on Netflix.

But finally, the main question you should ask is, do you like Peter's style of photography? You will see many of his images on the Better Photography website, or you can take a visit to his personal website and look around (you'll find it at www.petereastway.com). The MasterClass will show you exactlly how he achieves his style and uses his techniques.

What Are Some Of The Things I Will learn?

The KNOWLEDGE sections provide the building blocks for great landscape photography technique. This is the essential equipment and information you need out in the field so you can bring back high quality captures.

  • Which cameras are best for landscape photography?
  • What lenses capture the best landscape photographs?
  • Why the smallest aperture isn't necessarily the best for landscapes.
  • What type of tripod works best for landscape photography?
  • Choosing a camera bag for comfortable landscape work.
  • Useful accessories and gadgets for better landscape photographs.
  • Controlling colour temperature and managing white balance in the field.
  • Determining correct exposure for difficult landscapes.
  • Finding great light and making the most of it.
  • Stitching images for panoramic landscapes.
  • Computers, monitors and hard drives - post-production tools.
  • Shooting aerial landscapes.
  • Composition - a series of articles on framing, horizons, centres of interest, balance, rule of thirds, colour, contrast and so on.

Each Landscape Photography MasterClass movie can be played and re-played.

What About Photoshop and Post Production?

One you have captured a high quality raw file, the fun has just begun. This is the beginning of an amazing journey of discovery and transformation. You will be simply amazed how easily you can edit your images so they are absolutely breathtaking. Many people have commented how easy the techniques are, once you know how.

  • Processing a raw file to get the best quality.
  • Setting the correct white balance and managing colour casts.
  • Using luminosity masking to control tonal distribution.
  • Controlling mood and emotion with colour overlays.
  • Vignetting - how to maintain interest in the middle of your image.
  • Lab Color - Is the alternative to RGB the best thing since sliced bread?
  • Nik Viveza 2 - another way of working if you don't want to use layers.
  • Local contrast - two ways to make your photos reallly pop.
  • Using channels to control the hue/saturation tool.
  • Making selections for local adjustments.
  • Controlling sharpness for output.

And there are three movies in the special reference section that outline exactly how to use layers in Photoshop. These movies demystify the most powerful techniques in Photoshop and, being movies, you can replay them as often as you need to, following along every mouse click at your own rate. These movies have been purchased by thousands of photographers and have received univeral acclaim for being so easy to understand.

How Does This Make Me A Better Landscape Photographer?

Most great painters and photographers have learned from other great painters and photographers. Many of the most famous names in photography worked as assistants before starting out on their own. The time they spent 'in school' with more experienced photographers allowed them to master their art more quickly and more completely. It gave them a head start in developing their own style and reputation.

Of course, it's not possible for everyone to be an assistant, so other opportunities such as workshops, seminars and courses are a great oppotunity to listen and learn from experienced photographers. The Landscape Photography MasterClass is an in-depth workshop with the advantage you can do it in your own time and replay it as often as you like.

Everytime you take a photograph, you are drawing on a database of information, ideas and influences. If you've never been taught how to look for photographs, or never worked with another photographer, the MasterClass is an ideal way to learn first hand from a world-renowned landscape photographer, and develop your own database.

Is This The Right Course For Me?

Different people approach photography in different ways. Landscape photography is no different. You can take 'pure' landscape photographs with a traditional bent, or more avante garde landscapes with a painterly feeling. The Landscape Photography MasterClass covers both approaches, but as you can see from Peter's style, he is a strong believer in using post-production.

Explained Peter, "Modern cameras today are so good that anyone can take a great photograph. However, the days of accepting a photograph straight out of the camera as being the final result are long gone. Every good image you see in books, magazines, on television and the internet has had some Photoshop post-production. Post-production is an essential skill and the difference in style generally comes down to how much post-production is applied.

"I teach the idea of 'invisible Photoshop', meaning experienced photographers may guess your image has been enhanced, but they can't point to exactly where.

"John Sexton was Ansel Adam's last assistant. He printed for Ansel and is a great photographer in his own right. When you look at his images, they seem so real and natural that you could almost walk into them. However, as John admits, both he and Ansel would work their prints to create this 'naturalness'. Post-production in the darkroom was a part of their artistic process and the only difference today is that we use Photoshop, Lightroom or Capture One instead."

The Secret Ingredient

Learning the skills in the Landscape Photography MasterClass will allow you to determine how much post-production you need to apply. The MasterClass is designed to give you a set of techniques, visual approaches and ideas that will allow you to develop your own individual style.

If you're wanting to win a photo competition, exhibit your work or simply produce a portfolio of stunning photographs to show your friends and family, then the MasterClass will give you a whole new way of looking at photography.

Asked if there is one technique that really established his style, Peter answered, "It's my use of layers in Photoshop. I cover the practical use of layers in three special movies in the Reference section, but it's when you view the FINE ART movies, and watch how I use layers to build up the drama and tension in my images, that you'll really understand what I mean.

"I've had many MasterClass students send me a note of thanks, saying that watching Fine Art movies really made everything crystal clear.

"The techniques themselves are not difficult or complicated, but you need to have them as a foundation for your photography. With that foundation, the way you see and interpret becomes incredibly liberating. It means you can turn an ordinary photograph into an amazing, sparkling, engaging landscape."

Is this the type of editing you'd like to do with your own photographs?


If there were a simple approach to photo editing that transformed your images into masterpieces, would you be interested?

Even better, what if you could use this approach without having to learn Photoshop and layers because it can all be done in Lightroom?

And what if this approach were so ridiculously simple you wondered why you hadn’t learnt it before?

My name is Peter Eastway and if you Google me, you’ll learn that people consider me a bit of an expert in post-production. And what I’ve discovered is that photographers want to learn how all the different tools operate in Lightroom, but forget the fundamental ingredient.

And that ingredient is creativity. Your creativity, not mine, but the Lightroom Atelier course will show you exactly what you need to do to transform your raw files into professionally edited masterpieces, all within Lightroom.

After After
Before Before
Some photographs only require one or two adjustments to be improved, others take a little more work.


There are lots of courses that teach how to use Lightroom practically, so now it’s time to harness your imagination and use Lightroom creatively.

  • Do you wonder how other photographers create images with a special sparkle that yours don’t have (yet)?
  • Do you need a process that will take your photos from average to amazing, every time?
  • Are you struggling to use Lightroom creatively?
  • The Lightroom Atelier has your answers!

Did you know that your camera is designed to take ‘average’ photographs? Seriously! And this isn’t a criticism because cameras are truly amazing, but they have no idea what you’re photographing or why, so the best they can do is provide an average result that looks pretty good. On average.

What your camera can never do is interpret your photos creatively. It will never suggest you darken down a sky or lighten up a face – it can’t. But just by looking at your photos, you can easily see what needs to be done, you just don’t know how to do it yet!

The good news is that creative Lightroom is straightforward to learn with the right teacher.

Editing photos in Lightroom needn’t take hours and hours – you can finish your images in just a few minutes if you know how.

And rather than it being unethical to edit and improve your photographs, it’s what famous photographers have been doing ever since photography was invented! Even in the old darkrooms!

In fact, if you’re not editing your photographs creatively, you’re letting yourself down.

How far would you like to take your photographs in terms of creativity?

I realise all this might sound a little daunting if you’re just learning Lightroom. On the other hand, if you’ve already been playing in Lightroom, it should sound incredibly exciting to use the controls in a more creative way. And I promise you that watching my videos will make using Lightroom incredibly easy to use – it will just click!

Check out the first lesson in the Lightroom Atelier for free - click here.

This series of movies isn’t about applying pre-sets and speed editing all your photographs with the click of a mouse, hoping that one or two of them will look good. Sure, you can work this way, but it’s completely missing the point. The Lightroom Atelier is for photographers who want to take their very best raw files and turn them into gob-smackingly amazing photographs.

However, I realise our time is valuable, so you won’t be spending hours and hours on a file. Within a few minutes you will have made both global and selective changes using the techniques outlined in the Lightroom Atelier. And they’ll be so polished and refined, your friends will think you’ve hired a professional retouched to help!

And in a way, you have! But after I’ve shown you these creative techniques, you’ll be comfortably working on your own, secure in the knowledge that you have the skills to interpret and refine any image you want. Okay, almost any image because if I’m honest, there are still one or two raw files that are stumping me and perhaps I need to go back and photograph them differently!

After After
Before Before

Each Atelier movie can be played and re-played so you get to understand exactly how
Peter achieves his edits in Lightroom.

Does this sound far fetched? Are you concerned that high-level editing in Lightroom is beyond you?

A number of years ago, I was in Las Vegas giving a presentation to around 1000 photographers, describing my approach to image editing (the same approach I outline in the Lightroom Atelier). Afterwards, one of my friends overheard someone in the audience complaining that my approach was too simple! I had to think about this for a little while, but I realised that this photographer was searching for complicated answers to what are really quite simple techniques. Yes, my approach is incredibly simple – and anyone can learn it.

After watching the Lightroom Atelier, you will be confident that:

  • You have interpreted the exposure and contrast correctly;
  • Optimised the colour balance to match your subject;
  • Refined your highlights and shadows, creating the right balance of information and mystery;
  • Used selective editing to focus the viewer’s attention on what part of the subject is important to you;
  • Be confident that your technique is ‘invisible’ to the casual observer.

The secret to editing great photographs isn’t in how much time you slave over a computer monitor, it’s what you do in that time that matters. Start the rest of your photography life with clear instructions that will save you time, make you more productive and, most importantly, produce a creative result you’re really proud of.

Most other courses don’t teach the secret ingredients of creativity, but isn’t this what using Lightroom is all about? Don’t waste time aimlessly moving the sliders around, learn an approach to editing in Lightroom that will see you creating the photographs you always imagined.

Specially Designed

The Lightroom Atelier includes two key approaches for explaining and demystifying my approach to creative editing. Most important is my creative approach, showing how images can be transformed from the mundane to the spectacular and the ideas behind the changes. The second approach is how the most important Lightroom tools work – so this will be revision for more advanced photographers, but an integral component of the Atelier for photographers who are just learning Lightroom.

Who is this course for?

The Lightroom Atelier will benefit both beginner and advanced photographers in different ways.

  • Advanced photographers will learn how to use their existing Lightroom skills more creatively.
  • Learner photographers will be taught Lightroom’s essential tools and techniques.
  • And Photoshop workers will discover how Lightroom can be used to do many of the things they are using Photoshop for now – such as layer effects and selective editing. 

Have you taken online courses before, but you’re still not creating the photos you imagine? Chances are those courses were teaching you the mechanics of using Lightroom, but not a creative philosophy or approach to photography, with Lightroom as the tool. This is the difference you’ll find in the Lightroom Atelier. It’s not just how to use the sliders, but how to approach the creative process itself.

Watch how a range of different subjects can be transformed from standard captures into artistic interpretations.

Many photographers believe that the only way to edit your files properly is with Photoshop, but this isn’t true. Lightroom was designed by the developers of Photoshop to do many of the same things, only more quickly and efficiently. And while it’s true there are some advanced techniques that you can’t replicate in Lightroom, all of the important techniques are available within Lightroom – if you just understand how to approach creative editing.

What This Course Will Teach You?

The Lightroom Atelier will show you:

  • The exact techniques I use every time to edit my photographs to a professional standard.
  • How to use contrast instead of exposure to produce photographs with power and impact.
  • Optimising your exposures with global highlight and shadow control for a professional finish.
  • Use the power of Photoshop layers and masks easily in Lightroom.
  • How to access selective colour and why it creates stronger compositions.
  • Power techniques for retouching the eyes for catchlights and sparkle.
  • The concept of ‘dodging and burning’ without layers in Lightroom.
  • How far you can push your photos and still produce amazing results.

This course isn’t for everyone. Here’s who shouldn’t purchase the Lightroom Atelier:

  • Photographers who only use their smartphones – this course is for serious photographers.
  • Photographers who are looking for automatic presets and filters – automation is wonderful, but don’t hand over your creativity to a faceless computer programmer who has no idea what you’re trying to achieve!
  • Photographers who don’t want to think about their images. This course isn’t going to help you. In fact, we doubt any course will! 

So, if my focus is on the creative use of Lightroom, does this mean I’m not teaching you how to use the various tools and panels that make Lightroom such an effective editing tool? Each of the ten lessons comprises a creative video and a practical video. In the practical videos, I’ll explain my techniques for:

  • Setting up Lightroom catalogues and ingesting (importing) raw files.
  • The practical way to use the Basic Panel for global editing changes
  • How to use the clarity and dehaze tools without making your edits look horrible!
  • Both corrective and creative use of the transform tools and when to use them.
  • Stitching panoramas within Lightroom and then editing the DNG file.
  • Creating HDRs within Lightroom and understanding when you need to use it.

You can checkout a sample lesson for free - click here.

And it won’t take you long to master Lightroom creatively! The Lightroom Atelier comprises 23 videos and around 3.5 hours of material. You can download the videos to your local device for offline viewing and it’s a lifetime online subscription.

The Art & Creativity Behind Lightroom

On this page you'll see a number of 'before and after' examples - the photo as mechanically captured by the camera and the resulting creative interpretation. All the examples have been prepared in Lightroom without any special plug-ins or tools. 

Once you've learned how to use Lightroom's controls, the most important step is to work out what you actually want to do creatively with your photographs, and this is where the Lightroom Atelier is different from other tutorials. Throughout the ten Ateliers, Peter will show and explain the thought process behind his work, explaining key ideas and concepts that you'll be able to immediately apply to your own photography.

What's An Atelier? 

During the Renaissance, the 'teacher' was one of the revered painting masters and his 'students' worked with him in a studio called an 'atelier'. It is a common term in the world of art today and it has been borrowed here to describe the process taken in the Lightroom Atelier, that of explaining the processes behind the technique and then sharing the creative process.

While in no way associating himself with the old masters of art history, Peter is recognised by the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) as a Grand Master of Photography. He has won the title Australian Professional Photographer of the Year twice, he is a photography magazine editor with over 30 years experience and he lectures around the world on photography and post-production.

His aim in the Lightroom Atelier is to share in great detail both the craft and art of creating great images in Lightroom. There are very few people who can equal his experience as a teacher, writer and presenter who also have such success in the real world of professional photography.

Peter’s work has been published and exhibited internationally. He was the author of the Lonely Planet’s Guide to Landscape Photography. His photography has recently featured on the cover of the Lonely Planet’s guide to Australia, in articles in the Qantas in flight magazine, and in an Apple television commercial.

Peter’s early landscapes were primarily black and white, carefully printed and toned, but with the advent of digital photography, he is taking a leading role internationally, creating a New Tradition of high quality landscape imagery. Peter speaks nationally and internationally on topics including landscape photography, Photoshop techniques, publishing and the business of professional photography.

Peter is a member of the ND5 Ninety Degrees Five collective with Christian and Michael Fletcher, Tony Hewitt and Les Walkling.
