Private Adobe Lightroom Classes

How does it work?

Classes are tailored to your individual needs. We can do private in-person sessions in the Gettysburg, PA area, or online via Google Hangout or Skype. We will utilize screen sharing for online classes so you can see the adjustments and locations of items we discuss. To complete an online class, we ask that you send us at least 5 RAW files a day or two before your session. We can share a Dropbox folder, or Google Drive folder to make this easier. RAW files can be too large to email. To order simply click the desired length of time you want and place your order. Once we get the confirmation we will be in touch to set up a time for your personalized class. ‍ 

Want to work together?

If you like what you see and want to work together, get in touch! We'll do the first 50 images free to give UP a try.

Do you struggle with Lightroom? Did you buy a bunch of presets and are having a hard time using them? Or they just aren't giving you the results you want from them? Let us help you with a private session to help you get the most out of this powerful tool called Adobe Lightroom. ‍

We've been using Lightroom since it was first in Beta testing and have spent countless hours honing our skills using Lightroom. To the point that 98% of all our photo editing is done in Lightroom. We've taught Adobe Lightroom for over 8 years in small one-on-one to large groups of 40+ people.

How would it feel for you to take your photography to the next level?

Learn how to get the most out of your images using your vision for those images. Are you using a set of presets you bought and just aren't getting the results you want? We can help you enhance your images without presets or use presets as a starting point.‍View a before and after below...

Our private Adobe Lightroom classes will help build your confidence in your photography.  We will show you how to utilize Lightroom's powerful Library module to help keep you organized, we delve deep into the powerful Develop module to help you get the most out of your images and create powerfully visual impactful images.  Two very important components of digital photography are organization and photo editing skills. This private class helps build those two-element.
