I’m Lee Varis, photographer, educator and digital imaging artist. I have maintained a website at this domain for over 15 years. I have divided my 40 years of experience almost equally  between traditional film-based  and digital imaging photography. This gives me a unique perspective on the evolution of photographic technology grounded in the tradition of old school craft.

      Lee, I get warning about your site possibly being Hacked. Don’t know if it is significant, but I cannot access your Menu – or to be more specific: On there is a button called “MENU”. It don’t work for me anymore.


      1. Teva - Men ALP Premier Teva - Men Black b5398a9 - LeeVaris Post author is a url that was used for 500px galleries – this “site” is technically no longer available, and will probably disappear at some point – 500px made some changes in their infrastructure so this remnant probably doesn’t work properly any more – you can access the galleries from my main website: from the “Galleries” menu at the top.

        Hey Lee, it’s Don from the OC. Wished you’d never abandoned us out west! I mean who needs love…lol? Let’s do another 10 channel workflow/calibration class out here soon. Paul’s Photo? I can fill it just from the two camera and critique groups I help with. Cheers!

        Hi Lee, I purchased “The big deal” Bundle but when I try to access your “Photo-Illustration in Photoshop” it says I have an invalid code or its expired. It says on the redemption instructions that the codes will be valid until 25/8/15. Please advise – Cheers – Andy.

          Hello, I was watching one of your tutorials on you tube (skin softening using high pass) and you mentioned that this procedure was not in the new “Skin” book. What is this book? What is the full title and do you know the title of the most recent version? Thanks very much for your help!

            Hello Mr Varis, I just found and watched the youtube tutorial you have on removing red blotches of skin . First I would like to say thanks you its a great technique that will save me tons of time. I am curious to know if you have ever attempted to use the same method to ADD color . Like some skin tan for example. I recently had a model who has some tan to her face but her arms are very white / pale

            Him Lee, I purchased the Big Deal Bundle, but with all the info available, I have not yet downloaded your content “The Fundamentals of Photo-Illustration in Photoshop”. can you please extend the download deadline?

            1. Teva - Men ALP Premier Teva - Men Black b5398a9 - LeeVaris Post author

              If you have registered for the course (clicked on the enroll in course button) you should have lifetime access! There have been a number of major changes with the web server where the course is hosted and it seems like the download procedures have changed. If you are actually registered, and not just using the Big Deal link, you should be able to access all the videos—I’m still looking into the downloading aspect of things! Did you start the course yet? Free access through the Big Deal link has expired, and I’m not really in control of that—I should know more about downloading the videos if you are registered in a few days!

              1. Teva - Men ALP Premier Teva - Men Black b5398a9 - Wanda Squire

                I previously purchased “The Fundamentals of Photo Illustration” and have forgotten my password. I ask it to let me generate a new password, but I get nothing. I waited a week thinking it might only be during weekdays, but nothing has happened this week. I did not purchase through the Big Deal link. I was using the course just fine until I lost my password. Regards, Wanda

                  Wanda, I do not have your name registered as a student, your email does not show up in the list—did you use another email to register for the course?

                  Dear Mr. Varis: Previously, I purchased the online course “Photo Illustration”. However, I have forgotten my password and now I cannot access the course. It will not let me generate a new password. What do I do? Regards.

                  Hi, Bruce. I watched you very nice tutorial about getting rid of moire in digital photos and I followed it exactly, but at the end, I don’t get rid of just the patterns, no matter which combination I try.
                  I am on Win7 64bit and PS CC2018.
                  Please help. Thanks, Dan

                    There is no Bruce here – just me, Lee Varis — not sure what to recommend without seeing the problem image. Perhaps you can put the image in a Dropbox for me & I’ll take a look!
