Training Session Policies

Cancellations/Rescheduling Policy

Because of the one on one nature of our training sessions each time slot is reserved only for the individual that booked it, therefore we must strictly enforce the policy below. This policy applies to both the complimentary and paid sessions.

Client Preparedness: It is the client’s responsibility to read/watch all provided specifications and instructions, such as how to connect to your training session, equipment and internet service speed requirements. We highly recommend acquiring, downloading, installing and testing all necessary software and equipment well in advance of your scheduled session. We are always glad to help with any questions or issues you encounter during this process if contacted well ahead of your session but ultimately, it is your responsibility to be prepared for your session. Late arrivals or missed sessions due to technical difficulty will not receive special treatment and policies below will still be enforced.

Missed Sessions/No shows: If you flat out miss a session without contacting us in advance to reschedule then your session will be considered complete/forfeited. We cannot reschedule or refund missed/no show sessions.

Late Arrivals: Arriving to your scheduled session late will leave you with less total time as we cannot continue your session beyond your session time slot. Else, we ourselves will be late to the next scheduled session with another client and therefore the time you miss by arriving late is lost and cannot be made up or applied toward another session.

Rescheduling: We realize that situations occur that may prevent you from attending your appointment, and we will make an attempt to reschedule you into an open slot, if available. However, you MUST contact Dan Wampler (your instructor) at least 8 hours in advance of your scheduled session.
Due to lost time and limited availability we cannot reschedule a session more than once. If you miss or cannot attend your rescheduled session it will be considered complete/forfeited.

Cancellations/refunds: All session booking orders are final and non-refundable. 30 minute complimentary sessions are only available once per qualifying conversion order per customer and cannot be purchased separately.

Video File Add-On Policy

Availability: Training session videos are only available for purchase at the time of your original booking order and cannot be added or purchased later.

Delivery: If you ordered your session with the video file option then we will record your session, process the file and make the finished video file available to you via download link within 5 business days.
Your session video download link will be active for 30 days, giving you plenty of opportunity to download, verify file integrity and make a backup copy for safekeeping.
After 30 days the link and file will be deleted and will no longer be available.

Disclaimer: In case of rare technical failure or malfunction which could result in failure of video recording, your sole remedy is a refund of the video file add-on price of your training session.

    This was my third session and we worked primarily on my processed images and problems I was encountering. Dan was able to target my questions and demonstrate simple ways to address them. As a result I learned how to improve vastly my processed images using simple adjustments through layers and NIK. He also showed me a technique for images, mirroring, that is very creative and more artistic. The best session yet.

    Dan is a wealth of knowledge. At my first one hour session I sent him 15 images to work on. We worked on a few that were more challenging and in the process there were additional tips to fine tune my image. Shooting infrared is different from my standard photography and Dan was able to address some specific questions regarding ISO, Aperture and using bracketing. An extremely worthwhile hour.

    Dan’s 30 minute training class was excellent! He’s very easy going and nonjudgemental. He suggested I use Capture One Express for my Fujifilm IR converted camera to process white balance, which I wouldn’t have considered because I was more focused on trying to figure out DNG profiles. He also introduced me to the Nik collection and some of the filter effects offered in that application. Stunning results! But the main thing he “gifted” me was his enthusiasm for IR photography, as well as the encouragement and confidence I needed to further pursue IR photography (I’m a total newbie). Thank you Dan…I look forward to working with you again in the future!

    I had an hour session with Dan following my workshop trip to Cumberland. During the workshop Dan presented a number of ways to get the most out of the various infrared filters for my full spectrum conversion. After returning home, I had some remaining questions, and Dan answered them all and even provided me with some additional actions to make post processing easier. It was well worth my time.

    Dan did an excellent job of resolving several issues I had with IR Photography and the processing of IR images. By submitting my questions and IR images before the class Dan was able to focus his comments/suggestions which made the class very useful. He also provided several “PS Action” routines which made my processing of IR images more efficient. I highly recommend get a recording of the session, so you do not need to take extensive notes during the session.

    Had my first one hour training session with Dan. I completed this about a month after having the 30 min session provided with the camera conversion. Dan was very helpful it walking me through his process and taking the time to answer my questions and provide specific examples of how to achieve what I was looking for. I highly recommend signing up for at least one of these sessions some time after receiving and using your converted camera. Dan is very good at explaining and clearly demonstrating the basic and finer points of IR image editing. Also get the recording option so you can review the session to review any salient points and remember all the details.

    My second session with Dan. This was a one hour session. It was excellent. We went through the workflow, and I Iearned so much. Dan is so knowledgeable and able to demonstrate ideas in a very easy to grasp way. I now have a much better grasp of using Photoshop in processing my photos. Highly recommend his sessions.Recommend having a video of the session, as so much is presented and demonstrated so well.

    Wow- the time just flew! This session was incredibly helpful and informative. I enjoyed my first 30 minute session so much that I signed up for the 60 minute session a month later. Dan has such a wide depth of knowledge in IR in particular and in photography and processing in general, and took my image from its fairly blah RAW file to a photograph that I can be proud of. He taught me some very useful and easy to follow steps in post-processing that will make a huge difference in my photography, both IR and conventional, going forward. Highly recommend!

    I scheduled a 60-minute session with Dan on the heels of a 30-minute session. I am finding that the deeper I dive into infrared photography, the more there is to learn. Dan is a great teacher; he makes me want to master as much of this as I can. More, more, more…

    I’ve just had my first one hour session with Dan and honestly, I can’t wait for the next one. I’ve been shooting IR for a number of years and was looking to understand one thing I have a hard time with. Well, Dan explained that and way, way more. Also, as others have said – get the video! Dan’s knowledge is vast and he wants to share it all. There’s no way you’ll absorb everything Dan gives you in that jam-packed hour. You’ll want to review it and again. And sign up for more.

Dan helped me process 3 photos that were captured for a high dynamic range. I look forward to reviewing the video of the class, as I could never have taken good notes. Thanks, Dan.

    I’ve completed two (2) 1-on-1 sessions with Dan. Each has been highly informative and served to advance my learning curve immensely. Dan was able to assist with the most fundamental issue of white balance, quickly correcting a few misconceptions on my part.

    In addition, several valuable tools were provided following my initial training class. These PS actions really accelerate IR photography post-processing. They are a very nice component that has been used often.

    My latest 1hr session focused more deeply on PS image processing. We worked on two of my captured images during the time. Using Adobe PS, Dan helped to make my images “pop”. As a new PS user, it was extremely valuable to view live and to also have the recording for future reference. Obviously, there is much more to learn, but these sessions have provided a great springboard for future exploration.

    I suspect these won’t be my last.

    From a new IR shooter I learned some new things. I also learned of other programs. Altho I did not learn everything this was at least helpful for me to be able to produce a photo from. Do I need more training? Is it Dans fault no , yes I need more of his classes! He does a great job! If your like me and not too photoshop friendly , some of this can be over your head! Take notes!

I had question about work flow, focusing, and processing, and Dan answered them all. Preparing for the session with images and questions made it very valuable, and Dan was completely committed to working through my agenda. I have another session scheduled in a couple of weeks and hope to participate in a workshop sometime! Thank you!

    Had my second training session today, decided to book one hour with the video to be able to reference it later… best decision EVER. (My first training was half an hour, and went by SO quickly!) Dan is so helpful, he knows how to explain and teach without making the student feel dumb. There were some things that I got right away, some I needed clarification on, and Dan handled it all with patience. Knowing I would have the video, I didn’t have to scramble to try to take notes on the wealth of information that was being given. I hope very much to attend the Smoky Mountain Workshop in Spring of 2020 (a schedule conflict prevents me from booking the one this Fall.) Very happy with the online training, if you’re wondering if it’s worth it, it DEFINITELY is! Be sure and prepare a list of questions ahead of time, to get the best benefit from the opportunity. I also sent Dan a few raw photos to work on together during the training, which was very helpful.

Dan has full command of his subject matter, he is able to explain procedures clearly, and he is extremely encouraging. His enthusiasm for infrared is catching, and I now find myself reaching more more for my infrared camera.

    I’ve been a photographer for decades. Evolved to digital but disn’t do much post processing because I though it was too hard. Virtually zero knowedge in photo shop but my black and white appreciation led me to IR B&W.Realized quickly I was WAY over my head. Just finished my firt lesson with Dan and feel so much more confident already. He’s very patient, explains everthing so even those without a lot of knowledge “get it.” Moves right along and doesn’t waste your time. A lot of info is covered. For a few extra bucks, PLEASE order the video done live of your session. You get it just hours later and is a great review of everything you learned to play over and over. Got another lesson coming up and looking forward to growing even more!! Thanks, Dan for a great experience.

    I scheduled 2 one-hour sessions with Dan. It is all about the processing and you need to know how to process your IR images. Dan explains the process – from the first step of setting the white balance correct… all the way till the final processing and the final image. I am so glad I scheduled the 2 sessions….we processed my images from the Super Blue filter and my images from the Super Color images…..and the process is different for each. I learned a lot in the 2 hours and have reviewed the recorded video to go over some of the finer points in the training sessions. I highly recommend to anyone that you spend the money and schedule yourself some sessions to learn the “how” to process your IR images. It is money well spent!!!

Being able to follow him as he processes different types of IR photos, first in the RAW converter, and then in PhotoShop was a great learning experience, but the best thing is I can review it on the video he made of the session for me so that I didn’t have to keep taking notes on all the many steps. He’s an excellent teacher in that he tailors his sessions to your level of expertise so that you can easily keep up with what he is demonstrating. Highly recommend

    Just completed my third one hour training session with Mr Dan Wampler of Life Pixel. Dan is a gentleman as well as a superb artist, teacher, and a heck of a photographer. He is at home in photoshop which is his element. He has a way of making infra-red come alive. If you want to learn infra-red photography, Dan is your man. Highly recommend the experience.

    Life Pixel offers you 3 options for 1 on 1 training, in addition to the workshops, blogs, video training, etc: 1/2 hour, one hour, and two hours. Because it is one on one training, YOU control the topic(s) to be discussed. Dan is terrific at taking your pictures and questions and filling the available time with valuable information, shortcuts, and tools. Decide how much time you can invest, and book the session.

    I used my one hour session to discuss lighting challenges–specifically shooting dark interiors without overexposing the views outside windows or doorways. We worked with two of my photos: discussing the exposure, camera settings, and working in photo editing software to maximize the impact of the pictures. I learned that my camera has a bracketing mode that quickly takes multiple exposures (I thought you had to do that manually!), how to color match areas washed out by overexposure, and how to layer multiple exposures to bring out details in all areas of the picture. Because it was one one, I could stop Dan to ask for clarification, back up, and explore “what if we did ____”.

    If you want to be able to quickly improve your Photography, book a session with Dan. If you are experienced and just have a few quick questions, 30 minutes will be fine. If you want to go deeper, book this session. You won’t regret it!

    Dan Wampler is extremely knowledgeable and patient with his teaching. I have just completed my third lesson and am anticipating my fourth next week. He is more than willing to give you the benefit of his many years of learning. Highly recommended particularily for those seeking beginner guidence although I am sure his level of knowledge extends to the “experts” as well.

    I’ve taken 3 one hour training sessions with Dan Wampler. He is a fantastic teacher. Easy to follow and understand. I enjoyed his approach on how to edit photos. It is great to now have new editing tools in my tool box. IR photography was very new to me and the internet does not offer a lot of information on how to handle the photos after you’ve taken them. Dan made it all very easy and understandable. I highly recommend getting the additional video to watch later as you need. You won’t want to try and take notes during the class. Easier to sit back, watch and enjoy. Dan took the time to answer every question. You could tell he really enjoys his profession. Money well spent.

    I booked three sessions with Dan Wampler and it was a very good decision. Dan is very knowledgeable but even better he knows how to teach. He is very patient with his approach and I learned a ton about how to use the RAW converter designed for my Fuji camera and then what to do with the image in photoshop. Very rewarding
