Bespoke Editing Sessions

The world is full of those who seem to make their images “look like” someone else’s. Don’t be one of those people. For the first time ever, I am now hosting bespoke editing sessions in Lightroom Classic CC. Using FREE(yes really) Zoom screen-sharing technology we can work together to teach you Lightroom’s features so you can unlock your own editing style.

Edit like YOU…no one else

As the author of Lightroom Mastery, which has been called one of the most comprehensive texts on using Lightroom, I am prepared to help you understand every aspect of Adobe Lightroom…even if you’ve never used the software before.  I also offer something else…and it’s something that you won’t find in many places. I offer you a promise. I promise that I WILL NOT simply show you how to process images like me. Rather, I’ll teach you the core principles of digital image processing which will empower you to make your photographs your own. Let me show you the tools you’ll need to edit YOUR way. Nothing more.


The one-on-one difference

Imagine being able to ask questions about your editing in real time? Imagine being able to focus on the features of Lightroom Classic CC that you want to learn more about. Learn the things you want to know, at your speed, and with a teacher who is completely focused(photography jokes) on you. I’ll make sure your learning experience brings you real results.

As laid back as our time together will be there are still a few minimum system requirements that your computer must meet in order for the screen sharing technology and Lightroom to operate smoothly. I’ve listed the important points below. A little unsure about whether or not your computer meets the requirements? Don’t worry! We can figure it out together 🙂

Must-Have’s

Very important! A reliable internet connection AND functioning speakers and microphone. The Zoom software we’ll be using during our sessions will rely on us being able to communicate as easily and clearly as possible. So a solid internet connection along with microphone and speakers are essential gear! Your speakers and microphone don’t have to be anything fancy. The important thing is that they work.

If my bespoke editing meetings sound like something which could help you then please take a quick moment to fill in this short questionnaire. It covers some important points that will make your experience much more productive and enjoyable. If everything fits then we can schedule the perfect time for your very own personal editing session using Lightroom Classic CC!
I'd love to know more about your goals. Are you completely new to Lightroom and looking for a ground up experience? Maybe you're a long time Lightroom user but you've hit a creative block on an image. Or perhaps you've just installed Lightroom and would like a quick tour of the software to see if it's for you.
Your email will be kept completely confidential
