What People Are Saying About This Course

I have almost completed your Lightroom Develop module and I can honestly say that after struggling with Lightroom for several years I am more excited than ever before to start working on some of my images.
Your course is the best Lightroom Develop course I have encountered to date - hands down.

I'm finding this method of learning very productive, giving me time to watch the videos a couple times then execute the task.

I just want to thank you for a fabulous online class! Your teaching style is superb!! Clear, organized and informative, you allow the participant to understand each step and made me feel comfortable with doing a totally new task. You were responsive to questions and confusions and always responded in the calmest and most supportive way. I learned a lot!

I wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying the LR Develop class.  I have been using the modules and going back and playing and reviewing and each time picking up something different.  I’ve gone back and redone a lot of the earlier work I had done and everything is better.

How it works

Full Participation vs. Independent Learning

  • Full Participation

    Full Participation learning gives you the benefit of accessing the materials at your own time from any place while also connecting with the instructor for discussion, demonstration and weekly feedback. Students are given a robust learning environment that includes online classroom content, live discussion with the instructor and instructor feedback throughout the course.

  • Independent Learning

    Independent learning gives you the benefit of a robust online learning environment, which includes all course content and videos. Independent learning students will not be able to participate in instructor live discussion or submit questions for feedback.
    This is a great option for students wanting to explore a new subject on their own before taking a full class or a great option for a skill refresher.
