"In case, it's not obvious enough....THANK YOU MARC.  Much gratitude for all your insightful teaching, instructive crits, and great access...all made me a better photographer!" Joanne S.

For those not able to commit to Marc's famous in-person workshops we have created this 9 week ONLINE format. Learn at your own pace, wherever you are in the world. Get personalized attention and feedback from your instructor and interact with like-minded students.

This new online course has been created based on recent feedback received. What makes this course so special is that it includes private 1:1 coaching - you can work directly with Marc to improve your photography. Marc's expertise is wide-spread, and includes not only camera and post processing techniques, but also advice on sequencing and organizing your work, getting it ready for exhibition and gallery showings, printing and finishing as well as marketing.

The second unique aspect about this online course is that it is based on assignments. You'll have 2 weeks to work on a given assignment, and in addition to receiving help and feedback during your private 1:1 coaching, Marc will also present an assessment of everyone's work to the entire group so you can see what your fellow participants are working on.

The assignments are geared to help you achieve your personal vision in photography, to get you motivated and behind the camera to exercise your creativity.

This online course features 4 assignments and 4 private 1:1 coaching sessions.

Please see below for more details on the schedule and timing of each session.

For any questions and enquieries, please email Marc directly: mkoegel@mac.com

Here's a selection of student feedback received:

"I want to express what a joy this has been in learning from you. You are an inspired photographer and a great teacher, and I want to thank you for your video critiques and the time you invested to create the video lessons and handouts."

"Thanks Marc for your insight into long exposure photography and the constructive criticism of my photos. I'm very proud of the photos I now have and could not had achieved this without this class."

Ian T.

"The Google Community you created for the class was a great method to stay connected with all participants and learn from others, in addition to your spectacular reviews and videos. Your critique sessions are always quite insightful and done so in a very professional manner; I always learn a tremendous amount from your special gift of breaking images down and recommending improvements. This was my second "remote" class with you and look forward to one day taking a class from you in person. Thanks again for you guidance."

Joanne S.

"I’ve just come back from a trip de Turkey (amazing and beautiful country) and have been watching your posted reviews of our 5th assignment. It’s a fantastic learning experience, and I want to say how much I personally appreciate the time you put into it."

Greg H.

"I really apprceiated the video tutorials and video feedback of everyone's images. I learned so much and got inspired seeing what the other participants photographed. In addition to your PDF handouts it made for a truly multimedia learning experience. My only criticism is that I wish the course would have lasted longer -:) Thank you Marc."

Sebastian T.

"Your course has been a wonderful learning experience. And has taken me a step closer to the kind of photography I love the best. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you yet again for this opportunity."

How this ONLINE Course works:

Marc is excited to be teaching in this new online format.

Every week (on Monday morning), you'll receive your lesson for the week. The lesson typically is in the form of a PDF document that you can download and study, but Marc has also prepared video tutorials for you as well. Together, these materials provide a rich learning resource that will get you out shooting using new techniques and skills.

After studying the lessons, you'll have time to shoot the bi-weekly photo assignment. Photo Assignments are due on Sunday evening every two weeks (so you got 13 days to get each of them done).

Within 3 - 7 days you'll receive personalized feedback on your submitted assignments. This is where our online course really shines. Marc has reserved time to communicate and provide feedback to each student individually, something that is often a challenge in a 'traditional' workshop setting. To guarantee your access to your instructor Marc, we have limited this online class to only 18 participants. And all critiquing is done by Marc himself, not hired teaching assistants.

You upload your images to a password protected online community created using the service google plus, where only your fellow course participants and your instructor Marc can see them. Here, you can also receive comments and see the other participants images and what Marc and other's have said about them. There is also a forum were you can get in touch 24/7 with your questions and comments.

Frequently asked questions:

Q: How is this course organized and the 'material' delivered?

A: For his online course, Marc uses a private community page created on google plus. All particpants will be pointed to and instructed how to join this private community created just for this course. This platform allows for everyone to interact, share images, questions, comment on other people's images etc. It is completely private and all content can only be seen by participnats in the course. Every Monday Marc will send an email with course content for that week. This content, which can in the form of a PDF and/or a video, is then also posted to the google plus community. Feedback for assignments are always in video format, and you will be able to see everyone's images and listen to Marc's thoughts about them (not just your own), so that you may learn from all of it.

It is important to note that interaction is not limited to Monday's only - that is the day for the 'official' handouts and tutorials, but you are free to interact 24/7. Finally, if you prefer to take this course but remain anonymous, you are welcome to join the online community with a different name (aka your nickname), or you can choose to participate using email only - in that case links to tutorial and image review video(s) will be emailed to you (but you will miss the interaction with the other students taking place on the online community).


Q: How much time will I need to work on this course each week?

A: A minimum of 20-30 minutes each week, plus shooting assignments. You can spend significantly more time, you will get out of this course what you put in.


Q: What kind of camera and lens do I need for this course?

A: Any digital or film camera will do, as long as it has manual controls and is able to do a 'bulb' exposure. In addition to your camera, you'll also need a good sturdy tripod, a remote or cable release (so you can keep your camera's shutter open for minutes), and a ND filter.


Q: What sofware do I need for this course?

A: The course will make extensive use of Adobe Lightroom, and will also include demonstration in Adobe Photoshop and popular plugin's such as Nik Silver Efex Pro 2. If you do not have Lightroom but Photoshop you can use teh inlcuded Bridge Software to do similar adjustments to what will be shown using Lightroom. The 'Adobe Creative Cloud' provides you with both Lightroom and Photoshop for the low subscription price of $10 per month. In addition, there are free trial downloads for all of the software presented.

Q: Do I have to be online at any specific times?

A: No you don't. The lessons are send via email, so you can work on them anytime, where-ever you happen to be. You submit the assignments online, and this can be done anytime before the assignment due date.


Q: Do I need to have a specific lens for this course?

A: No you don't. Any lens will do, even a kit lens that came with yor camera. You can even photograph using your iphone -)) What counts is the impact of teh final image, and less the kind of equipment that was used to create it.



Beginner/Intermediate/Professional. Must be comfortable with personal camera operation.


Maximum of only 6 participants for each course!

Equipment Needed:

Digital or Film camera (must have manual controls) and at least 1 lens.

Suggested Software:

Adobe Lightroom (version 3 or above) and/or Adobe Photoshop (version 7 or above). We will also demonstrate the use of SilverEfex Pro 2. All of this software is available for trial downloads, and you can wait to start the trail until the week of when we talk about specific software techniques.

"I want to express what a joy this has been in learning from you. You are an inspired photographer and a great teacher, and I want to thank you for your video critiques and the time you invested to create the video lessons and handouts."

"Marc's skill and enthusiasm for teaching is only matched by his incredibly inspiring photographs. Thank you for a great workshop today!"

"Marc, earlier this fall I took your Long Exposure Workshop and ended up with a number of prints I quite like. I went off to practice on Pender Island and ended up with an image that did well in the local camera club competition. So thanks for your contribution."

"Hi Marc, I wanted to let you know, I won a merit award in the B&W single image contest. Please let me know when you have another Long Exposure Workshop shooting in a different location. Thanks."
