Declutter Your Photo Life Online Course with Adam Pratt

ARE YOU OVERWHELMED WITH TRYING TO ORGANIZE YOUR PHOTOS?  NOT SURE WHERE TO START?

Now more than ever, we hold our photo collections dear. They are some of our most prized possessions. But when those priceless memories are unorganized and scattered every which way – on a smart phone, on a laptop, on memory cards and flash drives, on two or three photo sharing websites, in photo albums, and in shoeboxes in the attic – the joy of photography becomes an overwhelming burden!

In this five-part live online course running every Tuesday from May 28th until June 25th, professional photo organizer, photographer, and author Adam Pratt will provide a deep dive into his straightforward, step-by-step approach to decluttering your photo life.

The course will consist of five highly interactive, live 2-hour online masterclasses and will mirror Adam’s acclaimed five-step workflow, which includes “gathering” “preserving,” “organizing,” “sharing” and “maintaining.”
