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.

    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 is a master teacher. Over the last couple of years I have participated in several one on one sessions and my infrared images have improved a hundred percent. 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. What a relief to find a teacher who is passionate and is willing to share his knowledge freely. I highly recommend as many sessions as you can afford with Dan. You won’t regret it.

    I did a one hour training with Dan and he answered all of my questions and more. He is very easy to follow and very knowledgeable. I may consider one of his location workshops.

    This was my second one hour training session with Dan. Extremely helpful in learning some great tips for both capturing and post processing images. Dan teaches in such a great, interactive manner, ready with so much knowledge. I submitting an image which I had worked on myself yet wasn’t thrilled with my results. It was used for the training session and Dan readily had cool visions and took me down creative paths that weren’t even on my radar. His enthusiasm for infrared is obvious, and he generously shares his skills and time with you. A great decision to get these training sessions. I look forward to further sessions in the future! Top notch!

    I booked 2 one hour training sessions with Dan Wampler. He is a fantastic teacher. Dan had such a great approach lets you know your goals of training are important. He used my answers to his questions to guide the direction of training. Tons of great tips and demonstration of post processing. He was able to teach me cool post production techniques I wasn’t even aware of as options. Dan obviously loves the work he does, very evident in his enthusiastic and generous teaching style. I recommend getting the additional video to watch later so you can enjoy the process in the moment. A great session!

    Dan was tremendously helpful and gave me a very insightful hour into Color IR. We looked at various images I had uploaded and dealt with issues I had then and there directly on screen. There is so much new information to build on; therefore I am glad I signed up for the video. I cannot wait to see it and use it as a reference.

    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.

    Dan is awesome! I have had three training sessions with Dan so far and I’m sure I’ll have more once I have a bunch of infrared photos and adjustments to show him for critique and suggestions. Dan is the best, can’t recommend him enough. Fantastic!

    Was a great experience wit Dan! He opened new “doors” about IR editing that I would never think about. I for sure will do some other training to learn more skills. Money well spent

    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!!!

    I had a 1-hour training session with Dan to follow up on the earlier 30-min session. We in-depth on three of my own photos which was extremely helpful in going through workflow and also for little pearls to help in processing my own files, either IR or conventional photographs. Dan was also very helpful in helping me get the best monochrome conversions from my photos. A great session with lots of information and the video tutorial is mine to review in the future. Lots of fun and a great hour. Thanks Dan.

    My one hour sessions was very informative. Questions were answered. Session seemed more
    interactive than just teacher/student in a lecture. Using my images was a bonus. Glad I had the
    foresight to get a video of the session I am sure it will be used as a continued learning aid to bring
    the most out of images in IR and normal as well. Looking forward to my two hour session.

    My experience with Mr. Wampler has been very informative. Today I learned steps on how to capture an image and how to break the image apart in post processing in order to create a wonderful photo. The experience I have had during my one hour courses have been very informative. The video recordings have served as a great resource for future images.

    This was my first one hour training session with Dan Wampler and it was extremely helpful. You will learn a lot from his sessions. I chose to record mine and glad I made the decision as there is so much information it would be hard to remember everything. He answered all my questions and then some! I plan on taking some more training sessions as they are well worth it! I would recommend them to anyone.

    I am very happy with the training I am receiving from Mr. Wampler. He takes time to explain and show me how to edit my images as well as answer my questions. I watched Youtubes and read articles about infrared photography and none come close to explaining it as well as Mr. Wampler. I like him so much I added a week to my vacation to attend his Smoky Mountain Workshop this summer.

    Dan is an awesome instructor. This is my 3rd online training session. He answered all my questions in a clear and easy to understand manner. It is great to work with my own photos to see what can be done to get the best IR Results. I highly recommend a one on one training session and to get the video recording. I have watched the recordings several times and always benefit.

    I’ve completed 2 sessions with Dan Wampler about my IR camera and have learned invaluable tips for processing that are available nowhere else. 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
