The who, the what, the when and the where…

Who is the course for?

This course is for any level of photographer, amateur through to the professional that would like to learn Lightroom. Adobe Lightroom is a large complicated application and to get the most out of it, takes time. I have been using Lightroom since it was released and have been using various different types of Digital Assets management systems before Lightroom’s conception. I am also part of the Adobe developers programme and help with bug finding on the pre-release versions.

This course will be tailored to suit the individual requirements of the workshop attendees. Starting from installing Lightroom, through to advanced catalog management, creating your own presets and backing up and mastering quick and efficient workflows.

You can either come with your own laptop and work along as the lessons are taught or bring a note book and pen and follow the lesson via the projection screen. Full class notes and images will be provided for you to work with. [There are no computers supplied]

This is an adults only course.[ However, if you have child that would like to learn Photoshop please get in touch and we can arrange a school/youthclub/cubs workshop. ] 

The classroom has access for wheel chairs.
