Hello, I’m Brent Bergherm and I’m thrilled you’re here. I’m a photography and design educator.

I help travel/outdoor photographers define and refine their creative vision by teaching them how to intentionally create beautiful images that resonates with their viewers.

I do this in a variety of ways.

THE Podcast for Travel/Outdoor Photographers:
The Great Outdoors Photography Podcast

Tune in for topics that will help you learn, grow and be inspired to create new photographs. The show features conversations with top-level photographers, new-comers, and everything in between. We can gain new insights from all levels of photographers. Also, I occasionally bring on industry leaders to share about their product or service if it’s valuable to the outdoor photographer. And sometimes I simply tell my stories from the road as well.

Free Video Content via YouTube
You’ll find videos showing you how to work Lightroom Classic, a few on Photoshop, and a variety of other topics that interest the outdoor photographer. If you’d like a quick start to Lightroom Classic, check out the Lightroom Quickstart Bootcamp playlist.

A Professor
I started teaching way back in 2007. Since then I’ve seen many a college student grow in their creative life and become some amazing artists, designers and photographers. Being witness to one’s growth is very cool and quite thrilling. Watching someone put the pieces of the creative puzzle together in their own minds and making something truly theirs… there’s nothing like it!

The Great Outdoors Photography School
This is my personal endeavor into photography education. Photographers who sign up get access to the entire library of premium content I create from deep-dive signature courses to tutorials and QuickWins! We also host monthly live group Q&A sessions for assistance with whatever you’re working on. TGOPS is the place for travel/outdoor photographers to learn more about the creative process and see improvement in their creative photography experience.

A brief note about me
I have a wife of 23+ years and four quickly growing boys. My favorite “dad joke” is that I often feel that I’m a member of the mafia because it seems that everything I do is “for the family.” 🙂
As for my photography, I’m represented by Danita Delimont Stock Photography. and I offer fine art prints for collectors as well. I’m a dedicated Christian–a Seventh-day Adventist–and I am always looking forward to that weekly glorious day of rest starting each Friday evening.

I’ve finally decided I need to come clean and admit that I love water. It’s my favorite subject to photograph (too bad I live in a desert!)

Just about any type of water will suffice (waterfalls, ocean, rivers) and that I’m a huge fan of a good B&W image too. 

This photo comes from Dubrovnik. The best city a photographer can find themselves in, in my opinion anyway.
