As true professionals from a large and medium format film background, Justin and Alex bring years of photo-manipulation tips and tricks to their training.
Justin Masse & Alex Markowsky
When I first met Justin Masse in the mid 90's he worked for a major design firm in Calgary (Creative Intelligence Agency), art directing photo shoots for their print ad campaigns. Over the years, I've called on Justin's amazing photography and design skills for more than a few projects!

Early in 2007 I was visiting Justin and his partner Alexandria Markowsky's studio, and we got to talking about Aperture, and how it's revolutionized their production workflow. Looking around the studio at the extensive selection of commercial equipment, it dawned on me that there could be no better trainers for our Aperture courseware than this dynamic duo of true professionals that use Aperture every day to store, organize, and retouch photos.

In their professional lives, Justin and Alex run a fine art and commercial photography studio in British Columbia Canada. This duo is now working on many projects together including fine art installations and commercial project's. Justin's long history as an Art Director, Designer and Photographer for many national level clients combined with Alexandria's years of experience in Fine Art photography creates an exciting combination.

Justin and Alex utilize a variety of tools to get the job done, from large and medium format film, to digital capture. "We are always striving to stay on top of cutting edge technology in a quick changing market, instead of fearing change we embrace it." Although no strangers to noxious darkroom fumes, their switch to an all digital darkroom system has been huge for their productivity. "Now that we are experts in the digital realm, we can get the best from our film as well as digital capture, combining the two allows more creative possibilities without loosing the warmth and feel of film."

All this experience certainly shows in their tutorial videos. I'm very pleased to list Justin and Alex amoung our profesional roster of trainers here at!
