About Light Stalking

We want to teach people how to create the photographs that they aspire to.

We do that through free written and video tutorials and affordable courses that naturally and enjoyably extend their learning. We also believe in the power of community and mutual constructive feedback which is why you will find us on this site a lot and giving (and taking) advice in our forums.

Hopefully, we are doing something right as our tutorials have been shared by everybody from National Geographic, MSNBC, Photoshop, Lightroom, Canon, Nikon and we have even been included in several books! We are also a top 10 photography blog according to Feedspot, Klout and Wefollow.

Who Are We?


Editor – Rob Wood – Rob was given his first camera (the awesome and powerful Kodak Instamatic of the late 70s) at the age of 5. He still hasn't quite mastered it. When he isn't tinkering on the internet updating Light Stalking he can often be found on his unending quest for the perfect landscape shot. Rob started Light Stalking simply because he loves writing and photography. rob (@) lightstalking.com

Federico Alegria is a professional photographer from El Salvador. With a specialization in street photography, Federico contributes to Light Stalking several times a week. His portfolio is here.


Editorial Producer – Angie Morton takes care of bringing our books and guides to fruition by working with our awesome photographers. When she doesn't have her nose in a new Light Stalking guide, you can find her on G+ or Twitter.


Jason Row –Having started his photographic journey with an old Soviet camera Jason then spent the next 20 years travelling the world. His collection of travel images have been published worldwide in magazines, books and oddly on towels made by a Turkish textile company. Almost content with the 145 countries visited he has now settled down in the former Soviet Union in the beautiful city of Odessa, Ukraine. You can see some his work at the Odessa Files, read his blog chronicling the adventures of an expat in the former Soviet Union and follow him on Facebook. He also Tweets from time to time.

sheen watkins 73x73Sheen Watkins – Sheen Watkins is a bird and nature wildlife photographer from Birmingham, Michigan. A long-term passion for birding collided with photography when she was surprised with a camera as a gift a couple of years ago.  For Sheen, nature photography always presents a fun challenge. Those precious little birds whether in the wild or at the feeders, they don't politely pose for the photographer. Her photography can found on Facebook and her website. She also has a travel and photography blog.

“I always love reading the thorough tutorials that are posted here”


I always love reading the thorough tutorials that are posted here, even though I don't understand half of what I read. I am just getting started with Lightroom , and if I learn just one tip each day I'm happy. Today my takeaway is learning to work with the color mixer panel for black and white photos. I didn't even know they would affect my finished photos. Thanks so much for sharing this.
