This is my second session with him and he delivered as promised each time. He is very knowledgeable in LR and handled all our questions. I am a complete LR novice and got a lot from the class but he was also able to go deeper for those who had worked with the software a bit. The interactive format where he was able to bring up photos and show what he was talking about was just what I needed. I recommend this to any one new to LR or is looking to take advantage of it’s greater capability. Not only did I learn a lot about LR I learned a lot about photography." - Stu McRae "For someone who had no experience with Lightroom, I learned a great deal from this workshop. Stephen is very knowledgeable, yet open to new tricks from his students. He took the class through the workshop very thoroughly, stopping for questions and suggestions along the way. I'd definitely recommend this class if you're looking to work with this powerful program." - Hazel "Really thorough training on Lightroom and Stephen's patience and knowledge was superb." "Overall workshop was well presented. Instructor was knowledgeable and helpful. I would consider taking other workshops offered by Stephen." - Kimmy "An excellent Meetup. Stephen has a natural ability to teach. An aspect of this workshop that I particularly liked was the fact that Stephan was able to field questions from us that we would not be able to address thru video tutorials on the internet. (...and there were lots) Individual attention given when needed without obstructing the pace of the of the class. A wonderful group of inquisitive, intelligent minds. The offer by Stephen to be available to answer further inquiries regarding this application as I left was generous. Kudos." - P.J. Bell "Excellent session: content was great and well-organized and presented, including some of the little tricks that make working with the program easier and more functional. Stephen takes the time to make sure people "get it." Thanks!" - Peter Scott Cameron ___________________________________________________ Please Note: Information regarding the content of this event is subject to change with or without notice (i.e. the addition of new course material or topics and / or minor edits to text or formatting). © Copyright 2018 Stephen James Hutchinson.
