Over 7,965 students have mastered Lightroom with this class. Here are just a few of the happy students who’ve graduated from my Lightroom tutorials for beginners class…

“The content of the course is perfectly structured and expertly delivered. The flow of the content builds knowledge and skills in a logical fashion.

Chris has a really good presentation style. Of key importance, when students ask questions, Chris answers them in a thorough and comprehensive manner.

Highly recommended. Regards.”

Michael J.

“Super informative and very easy to follow. I couldn’t stop once i got started. Will be looking for more courses from this professor. Thany you soooo much!!!!”

Jason Lozon

A+++ Tutorials. Highly Recommended!

Every lecture is discussed very well and in great detail. I now have a better understanding of Lightroom and am no longer frustrated with it.

May Anne

“I have started using Lightroom since the very first version and very happy with this Adobe software. But this is my first Lightroom online course. I have been using books and youtube explanations, but I have never taken a real online course.

I’m only starting, just 9 lectures, and I love the way Chris explains the different features. It’s clear he does know Photography, he knows Lightroom and Photoshop and, the most important point, he knows how to transfer his powerful knowledge to students.

Since English is not my first language, but Spanish (I’ve lived in USA from 1981 through 1983) I give a lot of weight to the accent, prononciation and the way the teacher explains himself.

So I have to tell you CONGRATULATIONS. It’s very easy to understand the way you explain yourself. Your English is crystal clear and so far your explanations are very easy to understand for people with another native language and some level of knowledge in English.

Thank you very much!”

Juan Sol

“Extremely useful course! Chris is a very good professor, doesn’t speak fast, so non-native English speakers can easily follow. He goes on each of the items on each menu, so we were able to explore all.

He also gives some very useful tips and is patient and answers the questions relatively fast.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING!!!

I am totally grateful for attending this course before start using Lightroom. My only regret is to have waited too much to attend to the course and start using Lightroom.

I highly recommend this course!

I am waiting for a module on Lightroom Mobile (my suggestion)!

Thanks a lot Chris!”

Vitor Rademaker Martins

I have tried to use LR CC without previous instruction and was totally lost.

The basic explanation from the very beginning makes the process easy to understand.

“Lightroom just isn’t user friendly”

I was asking some photographers recently about their
thoughts on Lightroom, and it didn’t sound good.

Check out some of the comments I received:

“There are absolutely no instructions that come with Lightroom. You will be staring at your computer screen wondering what to do next.

Therefore, you will need to purchase a separate manual that tells you what you must know in order just to understand what to do! Without a manual, you are completely dead in the water.”

“Lightroom is not as intuitive as one would hope.”

“The website made Lightroom look soooooo easy to use… [but] apparently, I don’t have enough Doctoral, Masters’ and Bachelor’s degrees to use this product. And I am pretty gadget and computer savvy!”

“Lightroom is a little difficult to operate at first… the EASE of use with this program is not the greatest!”

“Very intimidating at first, especially not being very familiar with some of the terms.”

“I was hoping it would be more intuitive than it is, but it appears that I will need some training to get true value from the software…”

“Lightroom is not an intuitive product. I often question whether it is worth the time.”

“Lightroom requires a degree, in their software, in order to get anything substantial accomplished.”

Does that sum up your thoughts of Lightroom too?

Well, it doesnt have to be that way…

Even if you’re a seasoned pro, I guarantee there’s something in here you’ve never seen before.

Why is this Lightroom class better than the YouTube tutorials I’ve tried?

The thing is, a lot of people — even some of the ‘successful’ people in this field who are selling very expensive tutorials — use techniques that are inefficient, imperfect, or just plain wrong!

To someone like me, who’s spent almost a decade using Lightroom and knows it from end to end, it frustrates me to see people getting bad advice.

So even if you’ve experienced “bad” tutorials on Youtube or someplace else, you’ll get something out of my tutorials.

And unlike manuals or YouTube tutorials, you get personal access to me — to ask anything that you might get stuck on.
