Free Online Webinars

At Backcountry Journeys, we know these are difficult times for everyone.

We understand that many are in self-quarantine, self-isolation, or simply practicing social distancing due to COVID-19. Thus, our goal is to bring photography instruction directly to you, in the comfort of your own home.

To kick things off, we will be offering webinars focused on post-processing in Lightroom Classic CC and Photoshop CC.

As a thank you for all of your support, we will be hosting a FREE live webinar tomorrow from 2:00-4:00 PM. Seats are limited so register by clicking here.

The webinar will be hosted by BCJ Photographer & Trip Leader Matt Meisenheimer and cover a start-to-finish editing tutorial. Basic and advanced editing techniques will be demonstrated in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Some topics that will be covered:

– Lightroom Develop Adjustments
– Using Layers
– Advanced Selections & Masking
– Dodging & Burning
– Photoshop Filters

All you need is a computer and internet access.

Nothing beats shooting in the outdoors and traveling to beautiful places, but keep in mind – there is a lot that happens after you press the shutter button in the field. Post processing is an essential skill to unlock the potential of your images.

Join us tomorrow and stay tuned for more FREE tutorials next week!

Did we mention these are free!?

Russ Nordstrand








Russ Nordstrand is an award winning Landscape & Wildlife Photographer based in Flagstaff, Arizona. His Fine Art Prints are hanging in private collections throughout the world and he runs Photography Tours & Workshops in the most beautiful and inspirtational locations in the Western United States and beyond.

Russ has been hiking, backpacking, photographing and guiding people in the wilderness areas, deserts, canyons and mountains of the world since 1997. He has logged thousands of miles on the trail and for many years in the past decade over half of his nights were spent in a tent in some far flung outdoor destination.

His Photography reflects an awe and admiration of the great, wide and still wild world we live in. Often his subjects include towering canyon walls, mist shrouded mountain lakes or wildlife in their natural habitat. It also reflects a commitment to preserving these places for the health of our world and for those who come after.

It would be a lie to say he does it completely from an altruistic standpoint. Like any great outdoor photographer he loves the thrill of wild, remote places and the accomplishment of nailing that shot after waking up three hours before dawn and hiking in the dark!
