You open up Photo Mechanic (no, I don’t mean Lightroom...) and speed through thousands of images from you and your second shooter. 

You enjoy the culling process! Because you know exactly which images you want to keep and you’ve memorized the keyboard shortcuts needed to make those decisions in a snap.

Imagine with me for a sec, here.

On Monday mornings, you open your laptop up with expectation... excited to see images from the weekend’s wedding. 

(And the Netflix episodes you get to binge on your second monitor while culling aren't half-bad either.)

Frequently Asked Questions

PhotoMechanic is a software that allows you to quickly sort, organize and categorize your images.. I swear by it and after this course, you will, too!

What's PhotoMechanic?

No, you will have to purchase PhotoMechanic for $150 from the CameraBits website if you have not already! However, registered students of Cut Your Cull receive 10% off the purchase price. Additionally, you are welcome to download a 30-day free trial of PhotoMechanic from their site.

Is PhotoMechanic included?

Once you go PhotoMechanic, you'll never go back. With Lightroom, previews load individually (read: slooooow) which slows down your entire process. PhotoMechanic uses instant previews so there's no wait time. (Plus a whole lot of other cool features.)

Why can't I cull in Lightroom? Why use 2 programs?

Chhhyeahhhh I do! When you have a system that works, you don't dread it. Make a cup of green tea, put The Office on Netflix, add sweet puppy by your feet and your favourite sweatshirt and you’re living, (wo)man!

Ready To Cut Your Cull?

Grab two hours of video content designed to take your culling speed from painfully slow to "Wowweeee, I'm done that wedding already!" 

Before purchasing Cut Your Cull, I was annoyed with how long culling took. I dreaded culling and integrating my photos with my second shooters so they formed a cohesive storyline! After taking the course, my culling time was cut literally by 2/3rds. That's time I now have to spend with my family or invest back into my business.
