Canceled Meetup

Lightroom Training (Session 2)


EPyC is pleased to announce the launch of our first training course on photo editing. We will have three sessions on Lightroom and three more on digital blending, using Photoshop. The training will be hosted by Ashraf Jandali, who many of you may already know from our biweekly events and photowalks.

Training will cost AED 300 for all six sessions. If you wish to sign up only for three lessons on Lightroom or three lessons on Photoshop, that will be AED 200. In either case, you will need to sign up and pay by the biweekly meetup before the training starts. Each session is limited to 20 attendees.

We strongly recommend that you bring along a laptop with Lightroom 4 installed in order to derive the maximum benefit from our training sessions. You may wish to look for free trial versions of this software if you cannot afford to buy it.

Please RSVP for the sessions you plan to attend. To avoid no shows, we are automatically putting everyone on a waitlist. Once you hand over the training fees to an organizer at an EPYC event (e.g. our biweekly meetups), we will change your status on the site from waitlisted to attending.
