About Nat Coalson

I’ve been a pro photographer since around 2001; before that I worked over fifteen years as a graphic designer.

I’m a published author, Associate of the Royal Photographic Society, Adobe Certified Expert in Lightroom and Photoshop and an Ambassador for Sony and Epson.

I teach photographers of all kinds how to apply the powerful principles and techniques of photographic design so you can create consistently compelling imagery.

“Nat, being the patient and perceptive teacher he is, has a way of leading you to look more carefully for the extraordinary amid the ordinary. The time with Nat has been a game changer. He is one of the best artists I know for inspiration, vision, growth and helping you capture all things beautiful.” —Teri G.

“Nat is an excellent teacher who makes complex technical subjects easy to understand and to implement. He is also a great teacher of the artistic dimensions of photography. Participating in his field workshops, as well as private coaching sessions, has helped me become a better photographer.” —Ron C.

“This was unquestionably the best workshop I have attended. An almost perfect balance between shooting and image processing/critique, the workshop covered the entire photographic workflow, from pre-visualization to final image critique.” —Dan G.

“I have taken several photographic workshops over the past few years and have found the ones that I took with Nat Coalson to be the best. Nat is very knowledgeable, has a great feel for the camera and post-production (Photoshop and Lightroom etc) and is inspirational in spurring you on to reach greater goals and to learn more about photography (and to enjoy it).” —Frank D.

“Both my compositional eye and technique improved very noticeably from your instruction. I was visualizing as I composed the shots how they would later look after post-processing. The instruction allowed me to fully experience ‘the moment.’” —Tom T.

“Nat is a very patient, well spoken, educated person; he has a great vocabulary and truly knows photography inside and out and can present information in an easy-to-grasp way. He is more than just a lecturer, he is a real teacher.” —Jock G.

“Nat Coalson is not only a passionate photographer, but also an accomplished digital professional. This combination makes him the perfect instructor.” —George J.
