Who is Masters Academy For?
Starting from Zero includes over 11 hours of no-experience-necessary lessons that start with how to install the program. You’ll get a tour of how Photoshop is laid out, learn to customize the layout and slowly progress to learning the most essential concepts including selections, layers, masks, filters, adjustments, HDR images and panoramas.
The Essentials section will help to ensure that you have the foundational knowledge that lays the foundation for other lessons. Then you can choose your own path and choose to concentrate on honing your adjustment skills, learning retouching, or go headfirst into creative techniques.
Ben has created a special selection of lessons that he calls “the Edge” where he shares techniques that only advanced users can truly appreciate. That’s where he combines features that are usually only discussed in isolation to solve difficult problems and push Photoshop to its limits.
His ultimate goal is to get you to truly understand what you’re doing and become confident and comfortable in Photoshop.
Ben Willmore was using Photoshop before Adobe even named it Photoshop. Over the last 25 years, Ben has written over a dozen books on Photoshop and spoken at more than 100 conferences. Masters Academy is Ben’s private community where you get direct access to learn how to truly understand Photoshop.“After decades of contributing to other educational companies, I decided to form my own since I didn’t see anyone creating what I would consider the ultimate way to learn and master Photoshop.” -Ben Willmore
When Ben is not teaching Photoshop, he and his wife Karen spend their time exploring America aboard their tricked out vintage bus. They also spend an average of two months each year exploring outside the USA.
Ben has explored all 50 states, while Karen still has yet to visit North Dakota. Ben has traveled to over sixty countries on all seven continents (Karen is only a few countries behind).
Our goal is to have a constant stream of unique locations to photograph that inspire new techniques we can share with our members.
