I just purchased one of your products, but the folder is empty or won’t unzip. What do I do?

Myself, as well as many other action/template/etc designers create and zip products on Mac computers. Unfortunately, in many cases, the default extraction program in Windows will not extract Mac files properly so you’ll need to download a third party program to do so.

I recommend the following free programs:


CAM unZip


Please note that there are other programs available, the programs above are just a few suggested options.

How do I install my ACR presets?

Download and unzip the presets you purchased and place them in the following location:

  • Mac(user)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Camera Raw /Settings
  • Win (user)/Application Data/Adobe/Camera Raw/Settings

Make sure you’re only copying the .xmp files to the Settings folder, as folders are not supported in Camera Raw.

*Mac users: To find “Library”, select “Go” in the Mac finder menu and hold “option” to make Library appear in the list.

Which editing tools do you use the most?

I use Homemade from the Feels Like Home set for every single black + white image of mine that you see. It is so versatile. It does occasionally require tweaks, but typically it is click and go for me. For color edits, Breathing from Awakening is my go-to, but I often like to start off with Wistful from The Fine Art Collection for Lightroom (and ACR!) and then bring it into PS to finish it off with Breathing.

Do you teach any workshops or offer mentoring?

No workshops at the moment, but I do offer mentoring! You can find out more here.

Do you have any tutorials?

I sure do! My tutorials section can be found here, and will be added to periodically. You might also find my “Photo Deets” series helpful.

What’s in your bag?

Canon 5D Mark III

Sigma 35mm 1.4

Canon 50mm 1.4

Do you sell any of the photographs you take? 

Yes, actually, I do! Check out my Art Shop here. And if you’re interested in purchasing a print of a photo you’ve seen, but don’t see it in the shop, please feel free to make a request.
