Ready for the confidence, freedom, and technical skills to design your own marketing materials with ease and efficiency?
Finally, eye-catching graphics, stunning photography, and branded digital assets are at your fingertips. #PsBootcamp is a dive-head-first, waste-no-time weekend workshop where you’ll spend two whole days getting comfortable and cozy with Photoshop. Tech wiz status not required.
If you’re tired of…
- wasting countless hours scouring youtube tutorials and googling Photoshop techniques
- watching others post consistently beautiful, cohesive imagery while you’re stuck settling for sub-par visuals
- paying a graphic designer every time you want to create basic designs or make a simple change to marketing materials
- compromising quality and aesthetic because you lack the technical skills to bring your visions to life
- losing clients to competitors
- creative constraints
- being overlooked for jobs , projects, and promotions
- feeling stuck while your peers thrive
It’s time to ditch your frustration, stress, and overwhelm.
At #PsBootcamp, we’ll start with the very basics, progressively covering everything you need to know about Photoshop. Through step by step exercises relevant to your goals, Bria teaches everything from navigating the program and file types, to essential shortcuts and advanced editing techniques that help your creativity shine. (Bonding over keyboard shortcuts and “OMG this is SO much easier!” moments very much included.)
“I had so many ‘ah-ha’ moments. Everything I’ve ever wanted to do with Photoshop was actually much easier than I anticipated. I feel much more confident working with Photoshop – thank you!” – Kristen
By the end of the weekend, even those with no prior Photoshop experience will have the technical skills and confidence to:
- create time-saving templates
- prep images and create collages or mood boards
- design and save visual/graphic elements for use on websites, blogs, or social media profiles
- add type, special effects and graphics to their images
- retouch skin, backgrounds, and edit photos
- animate gifs
- use keyboard shortcuts
- understand essential design, photography, and typography principles
- add “proficient in Adobe Photoshop” to a resume
At the start of the workshop, you’ll also receive a pretty little workbook full of keyboard shortcuts, tips, and project guides to help you along the way. (We just know it’ll become your new best friend once the weekend is over!) And, as if PsBootcamp could get any better, you’ll graduate the class with a brand new headshot – edited by you!
The time and cost are completely worth the amount of useable information you come out with after the weekend. Each lesson is something (or more!) that you were hoping to learn, and the take home booklet makes sure you won’t forget the details. – Megan
During the class there will be plenty of opportunity to get one-on-one support from Bria, who’s endless patience and expertise satisfies students of all skill levels. And, fresh from teaching and speaking alongside creative experts from all over the world at AdobeMAX – the world’s largest creativity conference – expect Bria to debut fresh Photoshop tricks and features at this final PsBootcamp of 2016.
You are a photoshop genius! You were also such an amazing teacher – so patient and understanding, and answered the MILLION questions that we had. You broke it down, yet challenged us. You have true talent, and I thank you for sharing it with us! – Stefanie
Before PsBootcamp I wasn’t feeling very confident that I would be able to work Photoshop and make professional-looking marketing materials, but Bria was so great at walking us through the class in a way that was SO easy to understand! The class and lessons were over and above what I expected and the food was amazing. I’m so excited to get started and to use this skill towards, possibly, my own small business! The whole workshop was so exciting and motivating – Bria has great energy, and makes the learning process funny and easy :) – Kim

WHAT TO BRING| see the checklist below
“I basically had no idea how to use photoshop and the whole program gave me anxiety! Post-class I realize how much more I can do as a small business owner and blogger. #PsBootcamp has made me feel excited and even more driven in terms of pursuing my personal and business goals. I have already used my skills to make an e-campaign, site header, product images and a GIF!! Photoshop is going to allow me to take my business and blog to the next level. One of my biggest hurdles in signing up was anxiety and stress over taking a class. However, #PsBootcamp was just the right pace and broken down so perfectly that everyone was able to pick up the skills and tricks. I feel so much more confident, not just in my Photoshop skills but my level of work as well. ” –Tessa
Although an intensive weekend class may seem overwhelming, Bria makes learning fun and easy. This course was one of the best things I ever did for my skill set – I just wish I took it sooner. Before PsBootcamp I had a hard time going from a vision in my mind to creating the end result that I desired. Every time I had to edit images, it instantly stressed me out. I wasn’t sure if I was using the tools correctly and I felt like I was constantly settling on the quality of my final images. There were things that I wanted to fix, but I didn’t know how; hours of online searching often just left me empty-handed. PsBootcamp gave me so much confidence. Not only have I mastered the effects I was hoping to learn, I learned shortcuts and new skills that I’ve used daily since the class. I even sat my boyfriend down to show him some of my fancy new skills and his response was “you learned all that in two days!?” – Kendra
