Great Lightroom tutor

David is awesome! Taught me in two hours what I would have spent 10+ hours figuring out independently on youtube tutorials and lightroom books. Money well spent. Will work with him again!

Jessica, 2 lessons with David

So great! Worth every penny.

Just wrapped up a session with David and he was so incredibly helpful. We spoke on the phone before the session so he understood what I needed help with beforehand - and as a result, we were able to hit the ground running at the session and get the most out of our time together. I'm a professional photographer and needed some help fine tuning my workflow and archiving process. He answered all of my questions, helped me improve my current workflow, and gave me a number of tips to make my work easier going forward. I'm so impressed with his level of expertise and I also found him to be incredibly kind, professional and welcoming (we did the session at his home). Couldn't recommend him more highly! Only regret is that I didn't meet with David sooner.

Excellent, Highly Recommended Teacher

I am a novice with digital photography and Light Room Creative Cloud. David patiently helped me understand the basics, downloading and importing images, saving to my new hard drive (which he set up), and preliminary editing features. I look forward to meeting again with him to learn more editing features and expanding my photo files in an organized manner. The session was very helpful and David was thorough, patient, and skilled at teaching without making it overwhelming. Highly recommended!

great teacher

Good start and great valuable info. The mix of theoretical and practical info is what exactly I want. Will have more lesson in the future.

Saba, 1 lesson with David

Very knowledgeable.

David saved me. In migrating my files into Lightroom, I thought that I had lost many of my photo. Magically, David was able to locate them and assist me in getting my files organized.

Bill, 1 lesson with David

Grasped my issues immediatelyand made a plan!

David taught me about creating a catalig abd how ro repair a messy catalog. He quickly got to work creating a new workflow, create presets and expedite my importing. I have more confidence moving and renaming files, understanding ratings, keywords and collections. I will be able to utilize what David offered me for years. David was prompt, professional and courteous. He is extremely experienced, knowledgable and quick to know what was needed. Getting help from David is what I needed and will use him again and again!

Terrific tutor

David is thoughtful, professional and thorough. I learned more in one session with David than in multiple sessions with less experienced tutors. Could not recommend David more highly.

Ellen, 1 lesson with David

Gets right down to work!

David is experienced and had my goals in mind. He was quick to grasp the full "picture" , and was able to correct the issue and suggest ways to prevent me from making similar mistakes in the future. I highly recommend him.

Barb, 3 lessons with David

The right tutor for me.

I am transitioning from Aperture to Lightroom. My photo library was in a state of chaos and I was overwhelmed. David began setting up a good workflow system tailored to my needs. He was clear, patient, and kind.
