Black Friday and Cyber monday madness

Some offers will not be valid yet, so if a offer doesn’t show up don’t panic, just try it on Friday, but because some did already start we wanted to give you the heads up for everything.


It’s that time again…
The CRAZY CRAZY weekend of discounts.
Now believe it or not but this wasn’t really a “thing” in the Netherlands but it’s now also very populair over here. Now in the past we shared some cool discounts for you guys via our social media but I thought it would be much easier to just combine everything in one blog post for you guys.

Now do remember, everything I link to is gear/software that I use myself and fully support. By using the links in this blogpost you also support our hard work, so I would appreciate if you use the links or share them with your friends 🙂

Ok let’s go.
First up….
Well myself

Frank Doorhof videos
Starting now till Monday 0:00 we run a 40% off on ALL my instructional videos.
So head on over to and use the coupon code “awesome” for a 40% discount.

Normally the workshops are priced at 149.00 and just for once for Black Friday we offer all the Mastering the Modelshoot workshops for 105.00 EURO !!!!

Visit for more information and the agenda.

5daydeal Flash Sale

It was immensely popular when it ran a few weeks ago, in fact is was so succesful that they decided to run it one more time in case you missed out. Do remember this is really the last time ever they will run this particular 5 day deal, the Complete Photography Bundle is live again for only 72 hours

This is an insane package with loads of special videos, ebooks, plugins, and even full versions of software, really can’t stress enough that if you missed this one you are literally missing out at the deal of the year and it’s not only about shooting models, but also about retouching, drones, travel, color grading, product photography, weddings and much more

Alien skin
What: Save 15% on every product in our store
I think that Alien skin Exposure 4 throughout the years has always been one of my favorite tinting programs, and when they added movable lighting effects and Lightroom intergration with the new version 4 they have the most complete tinting and RAW solution on the market that can work as a standalone but also as a totally organizer and RAW developer.

This sale includes the recently released Exposure X4, which is the latest version of our award-winning RAW photo editor and organizer. Exposure offers photographers unmatched creative tools and powerful organizing tools, as well as a fast and intuitive workflow that doesn’t require a subscription or a catalog. Exposure can also be used as a plug-in to Photoshop or Lightroom.

New features in Exposure X4 include improved shadow and highlight recovery, smart collections, fully movable light effects, a Lightroom migration tool, and transform tools for perspective correction such as key-stoning.

That was it.
Now of course there are many more offers out there, but I selected the ones I think you guys will love the most, and also the ones that I’m 100% behind.
So get it while it lasts…. and thats for most till Monday… but why wait?

Flickr pro give away

As you might know our friends from smugmug recently added Flickr to their portfolio.

Flickr is a real photography platform with groups, discussions, photosharing and a cool app.

Seeing where social media is going with Facebook butchering their own experience and often images and google plus stopping next year I really believe Flickr could be the future. And I believe smugmug can make it even better.

Of course I’m on flickr at so join me there and drop me a message with your selection. End of the month I’ll select one of you and together with smugmug give you a free pro account.

So head on over and start sharing and interacting
