Raw Class Testimonials

I just finished your Raw Class and may I say, ‘Oh My Goodness! Thank You!’ I have been living in Lightroom for over 2 years and now I actually understand what the heck I am doing. The thing that was impressed on me the most from your class was that in all things there is ORDER! I was doing everything in the wrong order! Thank you for making everything so clear!

I recently completed Damien’s Raw class, and it is AMAZING! I truly feel it has been the best investment in my photography journey! I actually “get” what I am doing in editing now, and can do so quite quickly…no more playing with sliders and guessing what happens next – now it’s done purposely and with an expected result. Thank you Damien for showing me the light 😉

Tara, Montana

The RAW class completely changed the way I edit and the way my images look – thank you!!

Sam, Western Australia

I’m so glad i chose to take the Raw Class. I was a little worried at first. I was worried I would have trouble comprehending the modules since most of it was written and not videos. I’m the type of person that visual or hands on works best for me…… But! I had no trouble what so ever understanding any of it! It was very easy AND very interesting. It had my full attention for long periods of time and I did not want to stop learning.

I have searched You Tube and Facebook groups for a few years now trying to learn all I could. but no matter how I edited my photos something was missing. I just couldn’t figure out for the life of me what I was doing wrong. until now! This Raw Class was the missing piece! I never knew how important White Balance or Histograms are. But I do now.

Thanks Damien for sharing all you know.

Teresa, Ohio

The Raw class is most amazing! In just a short amount of time, my image went from ehhh! to yeah! So worth the money! My editing time will be cut drastically by using what I learned in Damien’s class.Thanks, Damien for sharing your knowledge.

Kimberly, Tennessee

I didn’t think I’d need this class, because I’ve been shooting in RAW and “editing” for over six months and felt there probably wasn’t THAT much I would learn. Well, I was wrong. Not only was there no real consistency in my post-processing, but I had no idea what I was really doing when I’d play around with the sliders (it was mostly guesswork, pushing them around, seeing if I like the results, and then playing some more).

I also wasn’t aware of how using the most basic tools in LR or ACR can really do most of what is necessary for a “clean edit”. While I am not an editing expert, I at least am now confidently capable of producing consistent results with my images, and knowing what I should be doing with images through my RAW software to obtain a simple, clean edit, ready for anything creative I’d like to add in PS (if anything at all).

Thank you Damien! Definitely worth every penny!

Penelope, New York

If you are on the fence, take the raw class. Damien is an awesome instructor who really knows how to teach! He teaches you a workflow which I was seriously lacking. I was finally able to put skills I had already learned (plus a few new ones) into a workflow. Seriously worth every cent!

Sue, Japan

The RAW class was so informative and eye opening and made things I’d been trying to learn just click (i.e. correct white balance and histograms). The training is presented in ‘bite-sized’ slides which make it easy to absorb the information before moving onto the next tidbit.I would recommend this class to anyone and have already started. Damien, Thank you so much for this incredible training!!

Crystal, Hawaii

I finished Damien’s Raw Class and I have to say that I big-fat-puffy-heart him and his class. His teaching style is beyond awesome.

Samantha, Michigan

Thanks to Damien’s RAW class, my processing takes HALF the time it used to.It really is so easy to follow along with him – he has a great way of explaining things that makes it easy to understand!

Christina, Michigan

Just finished taking Damien’s Raw Class. His way of teaching is informative and down to earth! I can now say that I no longer just play with the sliders, I actually know which ones to move and why! Thank you for a wonderful class! Worth every penny and more!

Jackie, Louisiana

We shouldn’t be allowed to touch Raw before this class…It should be mandatory. Like a car license, only it’s a raw-license.

Anna-Lena, North Carolina

I have had a few real turning points in my photographic journey, and your explanation of the histogram and how it relates to editing an image was definitely one of them!

Beth, Toronto

I just completed the Clean Processing in RAW class and am amazed at the difference in my results! If you *thought* you knew how to process in a nice clean way, but wonder why you aren’t as happy with your results as you’d like – if you are missing the WOW factor – take this class. Take it slowly, and really absorb the information. I am going to go back through an old session and edit it all again, and I can’t wait to see the differences!

Tanya, Indiana

I would recommend the Raw class. It’s really easy, and it is definitely powerful. It’s basic editing BUT it lays down a really good foundation for your photos.

Alisa, Minnesota

I had so many lightbulb moments during this class; it totally blew my expectations out of the water. Before starting, I thought I had a fairly good grasp of the concepts covered in this class, and just wanted a quick refresher before going on to other classes, but boy was I wrong! I didn’t know before how much I didn’t know. Now I have a much better understanding of why to make certain editing choices and why to do things in a certain order. I feel much more in control of my editing process, so that good outcomes will not be lucky (and inconsistent), but rather the result of conscious choices and consistent application. Oh, and did I mention how much TIME this knowledge will save me when editing?

Eden, California

What you taught me in ACR via the RAW class has come close to changing my life! What a difference that has made to my workflow already!

Amanda, Ohio

Damien’s Raw Class is fantastic! If you’ve been wondering why to shoot in raw or want to begin, this class is for you! I finally understand what it truly means and how important it is to keep shooting this way. During his class, I had several ahaaa moments — and you know we can’t put a price on those! I have a much better understanding of white balance, exposure, contrast and saturation. My workflow is more streamlined and I can’t wait to put all I learned to work.

Jennifer, Kansas

I’ve finished your RAW class and I don’t have words to describe how much my editing has changed, just 1 big THANK YOU!!!

Nery, Croatia.

I have known for a while that I needed to fill in some blanks with my editing skills. After looking at numerous options and hearing again and again about the unparallelled benefits of Damien’s classes, I opted for the Aussie. This raw class is incredibly well constructed and sort of a shockingly good deal for the money. It’s impressively readable for starters; instructions are clear and well illustrated. If that was not enough, Damien’s promptly supplied answers serve to benefit other users in their own problem solving. Finally, the content is just remarkably helpful. All of those mysterious sliders have now been made meaningful. I think my white balance woes just might be over. After taking the raw course, I have an actual system in place, one that gives me some confidence.

Marie, Texas

After months of mulling over whether or not to take the RAW class, I finally did and I couldn’t sing higher praises for it. I learned more in a few days than I have in a few years of doing it on my own. My workflow has been sped up 10 fold and it’s all because I now understand what I need to do, and how to do it quickly and effectively. Thank you!

Debbie, Texas

Photographers – for anyone looking to take their editing to the next level, or even for newbies who aren’t exactly sure how sliders work, or how to read a histogram, or why to shoot in RAW… go take Damien’s classes. Heck, even if you’re an advanced user, TAKE HIS CLASSES. You will learn something, I promise!!!

Meagan, Arkansas

Wow! I just finished the RAW class and I am blown away by the amount of knowledge I have just consumed. Yes, photography and photo editing is an art – but there is a basic science in how they should be approached; it doesn’t have to be like shooting in the dark! This course is great!!! Without question, the quality and the amount of information was well worth the price of admission.And I loved the format. It’s awesome that you can go at your own pace, refer back or review as needed, have the benefit of previous participants’ questions and Damien’s answers to them – and that you can ask your own questions as they arise. I also love that there are links to additional information (blog posts, videos,etc). I can’t wait to put what I’ve learned into practice.

Jai, Texas

Damien, your RAW class is in the top three best investments I’ve made into my photography journey… and it was the least expensive. Thank you.

Holly, Texas

I am no longer willy nilly, trial and error, and taking hours to process a photo set. I have a clear understanding of what my histogram is telling me, and how to use the information. If I look at the sheer time I am saving, I am completely amazed. If time is money, then I’ve already made my money back on the RAW class! It is sooooo much easier, simpler and straightforward than I was making it.

Angela, Florida

I have taken Damien’s RAW class and was pleasantly surprised. There were many eye-opening moments. Before this class, I thought I had a basic understanding of RAW processing. Now, I have a more comprehensive knowledge. Damien teaches you why it is necessary to understand the concepts before you edit a photo in RAW. Then he shows you how RAW editing can enhance your workflow and lead you to an amazing final image (Foundation Photoshop Skills class). I enjoyed perusing the slides as well as the videos because they forced me to really see the importance of starting out clean. I highly recommend taking this course. If you want to learn from an expert, look no further. Damien is it!

Jennifer, Germany

I have reviewed your Raw Class twice now and I can’t believe how much I’ve learned. The first time I was so ecstatic when I finished. Too sad it was over. I went for round two and learned even more. The only bad thing I have to say is that it finished. I want more. Can’t wait for more courses to come. I will sign up for anything that is offered by you. You are such a great teacher. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.

Maru, Florida

I just have to say – I finally wrapped up one of my before the RAW classorders and I feel the need to go back and re-edit EVERY IMAGE! Taking that class really, genuinely brought me to the next level. I knew most of the content, but you brought it together in a way that made the pieces work together. THANK YOU!!! TOTALLY worth it! and it doesn’t even take vast amounts of time to get through.

Tonya, Indiana

Damien, your raw class was by far THE BEST money I have spent since beginning my little photography business! The steps were so clear and easy to follow, and the videos were extremely helpful as well. I just wish I would have found you and started shooting RAW a long time ago!

Steph, Pennsylvania

Best value for money photography purchase I have ever made…wish Damien’s workshops were around years ago when I first started learning to shoot in manual and process RAW files. I was fumbling around in the dark when it came to editing, really! Can’t wait to put the clean processing workflow into practice, and I’ll be signing up for all of the other classes too 🙂 Thankyou for sharing your knowledge so generously Damien.
