"From Photographer to Photo Artist:
Master Black and White Photo Artistry and Produce the Most Exciting Creative Work of Your Life . . ."
Creative B&W Photo Artistry
Black and White photography just got a lot more exciting . . .  In fact, it got a lot more artistic.
There's always been something captivating about seeing the world in monochrome.  Something pure and timeless comes through when we take away the distraction of color and embrace the essence of light, shadow and texture  — it's the sense that we are seeing the world under enchantment.

Welcome to Creative Black & White Photo Artistry, with celebrated instructor Sebastian Michaels.

Through this extensive new course you'll learn to combine creative black and white photography with sophisticated techniques of photo artistry . . . and that enchanted realm will open to you.
From the internationally acclaimed creator of the Digital Photography School sensation Photoshop Artistry: Fine Art Grunge, this new (and already wildly popular) program Creative Black & White Photo Artistry goes well beyond obtaining expertise in Photoshop, exploring the entire world of artistic black and white photography along with an entire host of technique and tools that will push your images FAR beyond what your camera was able to capture when the shutter clicked.

With over 40,000 enthusiastic students around the world now enrolled in training with Sebastian Michaels (and over 7,000 in this course alone), it's clear that a LOT of photographers are increasingly excited to be creating more artistic compositions.  

This is your chance to bring the power of that artistry to your own work.
Creative Black & White Photo Artistry now gives you the opportunity to radically expand your imaginative skills as a photographer. 

And more importantly, it provides you the chance to learn how to take your photos and push them further, compositing extraordinary works of photo art unlike anything you've created in the past  . . .

— partly because of all the new techniques you will learn, and partly because of how it will inspire you to take some chances with your photography and try things you never have before.

In this training, you are going to learn how to capture more creative images, learn how to edit them to perfection, push them further through artistic treatments and advanced compositional methods, and then polish them with pro-level post-production techniques.
Most of the training — for both editing and artistry — takes place in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop (or Adobe Elements), but you can employ any of these, along with any of several other excellent programs you'll also be learning to employ as well: Adobe Camera Raw, Photomatix Pro 5, NIK Silver Efex Pro 2, Topaz B&W, AutoFX Mystical Black and White, and OnOne Perfect Black & White.

Each session will consist of an array of training videos, cheat sheets, downloads, and assignments — all designed to ensure you get the most from this program.

With over 70 training videos and a wealth of pro-designed content included, there has never been a more comprehensive course on creating works of amazing artistry in black and white.

This is going to change everything for you in the weeks and months ahead.  It's going to change how you see the world.  It's going to change how you CREATE.

What some of Sebastian's students are saying . . .
This experience has taken me to another level in my photography and my life!! You truly are the hardest working man I know. A true MENTOR.
- S. Morovek
Thank you so much for such a fantastic course and all your updates. I love your classes, and I go over and over them and still keep finding something new. You are great at explaining, that is a real gift, to be able to teach what you know. Not everyone can achieve this quality of tutorials.
- N. MacLean

Thank you Sebastian, you've inspired me and enriched my life in so many ways!
- R. Rosenfeld

I am absolutely enthralled with your program. I've learned soooooo much. You are a fantastic teacher, very clear and knowledgeable on your subject and your voice is so perfect for hearing impaired older "students" of photography. Besides the material content, both quality and quantity, the ability to review and revisit any section many times makes your course so much superior to any course or workshop I've ever attended.
- K. Hutchings

Your courses are excellent. I’m a retired dentist who has lectured internationally. I’ve yet to see ANY course, including those in my profession, organized so well.
- L. Barsh
Thank you for sharing your knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm with everyone. Your programs have enlightened me in Photoshop and the making of art where no other program has come close. You have a unique gift. Thank you for expanding my mind’s eye.
- R. Madden
I have NEVER enjoyed courses like I enjoyed the Creative B&W Artistry course and the Photoshop Artistry course. One never gets bored, the pace is well spaced, your pitch is excellent. I hope to do every single course that you present.
- A. Naude
Your teaching inspires and motivates so many, thank you for that from the bottom of my heart.
- S. Masterson
Thank you so much for all the work you are putting into this course. I have learned so much! I have watched every minute of the critiques and have watched the videos in sessions one and two a couple of times already. This is the best value for my money I have ever received on video courses.
- P. Buermele
When you sign up for a course with Sebastian Michaels you are not merely signing up for self-study. You are part of something bigger: a community of digital artists who support, encourage and challenge one another. A tutor who puts his heart and soul into all that he teaches. You will learn invaluable techniques that will really give you an edge as a digital artist. What you also get though is a more holistic approach. There are detailed video tutorials, incredible content for you to use in your artwork, and core tuition on aspects such as how to promote yourself and how to lessen your self-doubt as an artist. Believe me, I am not exaggerating when I say that this course has been life changing for me. A year ago, I dared not even dream that I would be where I find myself today.
- Caroline Julia Moore
I think your courses, explanations and motivational skills are remarkable. You truly speak to me. You are making this so much fun and helping my “inner artist.”
- D. Testa

I'm amazed at your continued generosity in arranging for and offering so many tutorials!  I've already started viewing today's video. Had to pause to get some coffee and thought I'd express my gratitude.
- S. Hollingsworth

Thanks so much for offering this training. I also have the Photoshop Artistry lessons. Between that one and the B&W, it's by far the best training out there. I keep coming back to lessons I've watched previously, and each time I learn something new.
- A. Ecenbarger
I so admire not just your knowledge and expertise, I truly love your enthusiasm. It is such a motivator. I'm a little to old to climb trees any longer, but I would have if I could just because you made it sound like such fun. ... Thank you for all your hard work and a big hug to you.
- S. Masterson
This is a most incredible course.  I've been a photographer for over 40 years and finally feel that I'm finding my niche.
- L. Coleman
All your awesome bonuses and libraries are sending me in a whirlwind.  You've heard this before I'm sure, but, there is so much!!!  How is it you are so generous???? And full commercial rights !!!
- C. Kirn
I enjoy tremendously your presentations, they are so extensive in what you present, clear and concise at the same time. I also appreciated very much you sharing with your students such a variety of bonus items and necessary and useful links to other web sites providing everything an aspiring artist can dream about.
- M. Grasley

Your teaching is extraordinary and very much appreciated, it just keeps me so inspired.
- S. Schnur

Let me take the opportunity to say how special a teacher/mentor and all around inspiration you are - you are definitely the catalyst for a new exciting movement in photography and I just think people like that only come along every now and then - you are a gem. A true artist with a very giving, generous soul THANK YOU!!
- V. Murray
I have taken many Photoshop courses and paid quite a bit for some of them, but none of them even came close to your courses. I feel like I now have a true mastery of Photoshop. I feel I can do anything my mind can imagine. The videos on layers and masks were incredible. I finally understand how they work and how I can apply them like a professional. ... I am so excited what I can do with these techniques. I know Sebastian put many hours of hard work into these videos and it shows. They are well thought out and easy to follow. Anyone who wants to actually learn what Photoshop can do needs to take this course. Thank you for doing such a great job. I will benefit from this for years to come.
- A. Martin
I am enjoying your course immensely; your enthusiasm shines brightly throughout and really is very infectious.  I am so pleased to have discovered this course and, what is for me, a fascinating hobby. Please accept my sincere thanks for all your help, guidance and the huge amount of detailed information that just seems to keep on coming!
- S. Leech
I wanted to let you know that I am already appreciating your teaching style and your generosity. I've been using Photoshop for years, but I've learned TONS of new stuff in the introductory videos alone.
Thanks for doing what you do!
- V. Jensen
I am so amazed at the time and effort you put into your courses.  I'm also a student in your Photoshop Artistry course, and am glad I joined the B&W course as well. Thank you!
- D. Weber

Thank you for your great videos.  I already know a lot of Photoshop but now I am working on the B&W course and it's so inspiring! You explain this so easily. I am learning a lot about Lightroom and even more about Photoshop. Just WOW. When I am listening to the videos I feel happy and very inspired! I want to take photos and make art!  Thank you for that.
- C. Scholten
Thank you. I am so glad I signed up. Such inspiring and educational videos and, together with the generous bonus content, makes the package tremendous value for money.
