A New Project From A Familiar Face – Vincent Versace

He wants to stay in town, you reap the benefits.


After years on the road shooting, lecturing, spokeperson-ing, and generally living out of a suitcase, Vincent Versace has started a new company gathering some of the best talents in photography to bring you an upscale set of learning materials. And maybe he’ll get to stay home for a moment.


He wrote the Best How To Book of 2007 (voted by Shutterbug) “Welcome to Oz” subtitled “A Cinematic Approach to Digital Still Photography with Photoshop” as he introduces a system for creating images with the blended thinking of traditional wet darkroom and digital one. Then there was his DVD on Capture NX for Nikon, which will now be included in all new D300 and D3’s.

His series Seeing is Believing has just expanded.

Each lesson provides you with the skills and knowledge to turn your ideas into reality, teaching you to make informed decisions at every step in the process – from the time you shoot an image all the way through digital processing and output. Each image is dissected and rebuilt, step-by-step, so you understand how and why each decision is being made. Full-resolution 16-bit source files and original 100ppi Photoshop files are included with every lesson. immersing you in both the workflow and the creative process.

The new set additions sprung right from his needs on the road.
“Retouching on a Laptop” and “Lighting on Laptop II” bring the student a brilliant primer on using Photoshop CS3 to it’s best advantage. The 3 DVD sets are way longer than the 15 minutes you’ll need after learning to properly retouch your photos on location, or in the plane/hotel room/ Starbucks after the shoot.

Joining this company are John Paul Caponigro, with his R/Evolution DVD series, and Lee Varis with his “Beyond Skin”.

How pro can you go? Take a spin with these DVD’s and find out. Or perhaps for the photographer on your gift list.
