Art of Boudoir Resources

I am thrilled to announce the totally sexy Online Boudoir Workshop is coming again soon this fall. The last course sold out quickly, was such a hit and is back by popular demand. This is a 6 week course for photographers who want to learn all of the exciting aspects of the booming boudoir market, from home! Join us in your pj’s and enjoy video demonstrations, behind the scenes shoots, tutorials, personal interaction, a private forum, and much more.

Outsource Your Retouching: Colorati

Colorati works hard to make sure they process images to your preferences
before they even edit your first order. All of their production crew is under the same roof,
which makes quality control and consistency so tight.
Their turnaround time is amazing.

Photoshop Actions that Christa uses for every session: Totally Rad Actions

These actions have simplified my post processing work-flow and expedited
my turn around of time. Definitely check them out.
