Your Instructor: Clinton Lofthouse
Your Guide for this Photoshop Adventure is Clinton Lofthouse – a self-taught Concept Photographer / Digital Illustrator, from (sunny) York, England!
Clinton's path to Photoshop greatness was unconventional (to say the least!), and that's why I think he's one of the VERY BEST Photoshop instructors on planet earth...
You see, Clinton didn't take the classic route of studying at university / working his way through starter gigs at various studios – Clinton was SELF TAUGHT from day one, developing his craft through multiple commissions and years of trial and error. Over time, Clinton's high profile gigs and awards started to stack up, building his name as one of world's PREMIERE Fine-Art Photographers / Creative Retouch Artists.
What makes Clinton very different to most Photoshop Guides, is that he puts a great deal of emphasis into teaching the TRUE FUNDAMENTALS of fine art: the foundational blocks usually glazed over by most software technicians.
I've learned more tips, tricks, and techniques from Clinton, than any other instructor, and I believe you will too!

ART OF COMPOSITE: VIDEO TRAINING FAQs
Q: What do I receive when I purchase this bundle, is it a physical product?
The Art of Composite Video Training Bundle is a Digital Product. Upon purchase, you'll receive instand download links for all the video lessons and assets – which you can download and keep (forever!). This bundle includes: 15HRS video training (MP4), 1100 Premium Figure Stock Assets (JPG/PNG), 65 Premium CG Background Assets (PNG), and a massive collection of Reference PSDs.
Q: Do I get the matching stocks for these tutorial lessons, so I can follow along / create the same artwork?
The PM Team believes that the best way to learn Photoshop, is to create your own artworks (as oppposed to copying the lesson artwork). Instead, we provide you with a GIGANTIC collection of Figure and Background stocks, so you can create something completely NEW and ORIGINAL, but still applying the techniques demonstrated in the lessons.
We believe this is the best and most effective way to learn Photoshop, and it also kickstarts your portfolio with original works that YOU OWN.
Q: What can I do with these stock assets / what projects can I use them for?
All of the included stock assets come under the 'NeoStock Licensing' – this means you can use these stocks for both PERSONAL and COMMERCIAL projects! We understand that a lot of our students are interested in freelancing / earning money from Digital Art, so we made our licensing as versatile as possible for you. For more information, check out our Stock Licensing Info page.
Q: These downloads are HUGE! Why can't you stream everything from the Cloud?
We know our downloads are pretty hefty! The reason we want you to download and keep (EVERYTHING!) instead of leaving it on the cloud, is that even the biggest servers or platforms go down from time to time. Remember when Facebook, Instagram, or YouTube craps out? That can also happen to any service hosted in the cloud – so we like our customers to keep their assets locally, so nothing can hold you back from learning or creating new artworks.
Q: This Training Bundle isn't quite what I expected. If I get a refund for the course, can I keep and use all of the stock assets?
Unfortunately not! If you're not 100% happy with your purchase, we'll (always) issue a FULL REFUND without question – but you'll need to delete all of the stock assets, and ensure they're not used for any personal or commercial projects.
