We have the most talented team of photography and photo editing instructors. Please take a moment to read their bios and visit their websites.

Ted Karlsalr

Self-brown

Omnilargess Services President and Founder

With more than 30 years as a photographer, Ted believes exposure is the master key to unlock the potential for great photographs. Regardless of the media you use – digital or film – exposure is very important for capturing the image; it is considered to be the technique of photography, whereas composition is the art of photography. Join Ted on this learning journey, so you too will be able to masterfully use exposure and composition for stunning photographs.
Ted started Omnilargess Services in 2005 as a new area in digital imaging to teach digital photography classes and image editing. In 2014 he opened up a new equipment rental department to help his students exploring pro lenses, bodies, and lighting systems.

He also helped to speed up workflows and make tools to make things faster for gaming artists.

Interest in digital mediums has led Jonathan to a passion for photography. He currently photographs weddings, engagements, family photos, portraits, and more.

Using past experiences training others within the gaming industry, he hopes to transfer this experience and expertise to his Lightroom classes with Omnilargess.
