This workshop will introduce participants to Digital Asset Management and its concepts.

Digital Asset Management is a system used to organize, sort, and label images within our photo libraries. When implemented, it helps photographers to quickly locate either individual or groups of related photos within their libraries. This is achieved through a combination of logical folder structures and file names, as well as the metadata - such as captions and keywords - embedded within each image.

The workshop will discuss file naming and organization, using metadata to caption and tag images and, briefly, file backup strategies. It will demonstrate how a careful and standardized approach to keywords and keyword lists provides consistency across the library, ensuring that files can be quickly and accurately located when needed. Finally, the workshop will show how many of these steps can be automated, and performed in conjunction with other tasks, to increase efficiency and reduce the amount of time the photographer spends organizing and managing individual files or shoots.

The instructor reserves the right to cancel workshops due to insufficient enrolment. Full refunds will be issued if a workshop is cancelled or if a student withdraws prior to the start of the workshop.

This workshop has been cancelled. Please check back here on a regular basis for any new or upcoming dates.

Participants should bring a laptop computer with a plain text editor (NotePad, TextEdit) and a photo browser or editing suite (Adobe Bridge, Adobe Lightroom, ImageBrowser, View NX) installed. Demonstrations will use Adobe Bridge, which is available free-of-charge as a standalone program. However, participants can follow along using their own software. Please note that image editing is not part of the curriculum.

The necessary software should be installed prior to the workshop

Students may also want to have a memory card containing 10-12 images (copies, not originals), and a memory card reader (if required), so they can follow along with the practical exercises.
