Raw Class Testimonials

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.

Lindy, Queensland

Damien, I LOVED the raw class and continue to use your steps with every single photo. I wouldn’t be where I am in my post processing had it not been for you offering this. I will be forever grateful. Many, many thanks!!

Terri, California

Wow. It took me almost a year to immerse myself in the class because I was truly afraid of shooting RAW. I really didn’t know where to start with workflow. I have been using ACR for a bit to edit JPEGs, but the straight-forward knowledge of how, when, and why to use each slider and also learning how to truly read a histogram is priceless. I also had no idea that the Noise/Sharpening tab was there! I’m off to set my camera to RAW and jump in!

Jen, Michigan

If anyone here is still on the fence about taking Damien’s Raw class, DO IT! You won’t regret it! I could not be happier with the changes in my editing progress! A session that used to take me DAYS to edit is now done in a couple of hours, because I have the right framework coming out of ACR.  Seriously, this class is LIFE CHANGING!

Deanna, Maryland

Damien’s RAW class is AMAZING!!! The best money I’ve ever spent in my photography journey. I THOUGHT I knew how to process RAW images, and I was so, so wrong. My before and after is truly incredible and now I barely have to spend any time in Photoshop. Don’t think about it – just take this class!

Jennifer, California

Taking this class has made everything much more clear and understandable. Things are starting to make complete sense now. Thank you Damien.

Tracy, Minnesota

Damien’s class was awesome. It was just what I needed to finally make the leap into RAW. As a photographer who had shot only .jpg for the first 3-4 years of my career, I was completely intimidated to begin shooting in RAW because I knew nothing about it. Thankfully, Damien’s knowledge and his class in general propelled me into this wonderful world that I fought for so long and I’m grateful I made the switch. His class was very user friendly, extremely detailed, honest in areas where he wasn’t as knowledgeable and so on. His genuine personality helps you learn and his honest critiques teach you what to do and what not to do. I’ve already recommended the class to several friends. Thanks again Damien. I’m grateful for people like you who “teach” in this industry!

Angie, Florida

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

I learned a ton from Damien’s RAW/photoshop class. I was really lacking in having a concrete workflow. I would adjust a slider here or there, but not with a lot of purpose. I have to say that this is probably the best money I spent on learning – by far! No exaggerations! I feel so much more confident knowing what I am doing.

Stacey, California

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 can’t thank you enough for your awesome Raw class. I have been processing Raw files for about 18 months, and thought I knew what I was doing. At the end of your course, I thought I had only learned a little bit – until I processed my first session. WOW you taught me a lot. Suddenly I really understand what the controls in ACR/Lightroom do. I don’t need to muck around to see what works – I can just go right to it and do it. It takes me half the time.FINALLY I have found that x-factor that was missing.

Kim, New Zealand

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

I was increasingly frustrated with my lack of knowledge with what do I do first when editing. Do I adjust exposure, blacks, midtones, WB….what first, what second? It was ALL covered in the raw course! I had a HUGE lightbulb moment when I discovered how important a few key steps were that I was missing altogether in my workflow. Thanks to Damien I’m on the road to cleaner processing and quicker processing!

Mel, Ontario

I’ve taken several online courses over the past year and and I have to say, Damien’s raw class is one of the best I’ve taken, especially for the price. Everything is written in plain english, and he actually made it very interesting, like a book you want to read cover to cover!  He explains theory without getting overly technical, then shows you, using pictures, video and illustrations, how to apply that theory to your own images. He covers LR and ACR users. It’s incredibly organized and easy to navigate.

Stephanie, California

If anyone is on the fence about whether or not to take Damien’s RAW class, jump in and DO IT! I have taken numerous online classes over the past few years, but this class is truly the best, easiest to understand, get-excellent-editing-results-quick class I’ve taken to date. Totally worth the money – you will immediately see improvement in your RAW editing.

Brenda, Texas

Damien not only made it enjoyable to take his raw class, but he wrote it in a very understandable way. When I had questions, I posted them, and he was quick (MAN, was he quick!) on responding to each one of them. I could also read through others’ questions and answers, which helped me, too.I really recommend taking this course if you struggle with ACR, or just need a deeper understanding of it. It really is a great, efficient tool to accomplish a good clean edit quickly and simply.

Sandy, Michigan

I just finished the Raw class and I am blown away! Honestly I was nervous to take the class. Reading is not my strong point so I didn’t know what to expect. I LOVE that this class was self paced and there were videos to support the information. I felt it was a extremely accommodating for someone like myself. It was clear and to the point! It is an amazing feeling to have a reason (and the ability to support) what you are doing in raw. Thank you so much Damien!

Brianna, Minnesota

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

AMAZING!!! The raw class has blown me away. The results are spectacular but the steps are quick & make sense.

Lynnea, Alberta

Damien, you are a Photoshop rockstar! I have learned more from you in a few slides of your course than I ever did reading books on the subject by a world-renown Photoshop expert. The Layers and Masks class explained the concepts in a very easy to understand way. The accompanying videos are stellar too! But the Raw Class….it has changed my editing world. I spend more time with my family and less time on the computer. Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge.

Kimberly, Mississippi

Your Raw Class has the most informative, clear and concise information about post processing that I’ve ever come across. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.

Phani

I finished your RAW Class and have learned so much. Taking RAW images was new to me and therefore editing them was new for me. I thought I could figure it all out on my own but struggled. I invested into the class and learned so much. However, today is when I realized that I learned more than I thought I had learned. I had completely under-exposed a picture by pure accident and after about 2-3 clicks of that picture, I realized it and adjusted my settings on my camera. However, that under-exposed picture was by far the best one out of that series. I figured I would try to do the things I learned from class to save the picture.I was soooo happy that I was able to. The client LOVES the image and I did show them the before/after and they were amazed. I would have never have been able to do this prior to the class. I still have sooo much more to learn and frequently go back to the material. Damien you rock.

Kristine

OH MY GOODNESS just doesn’t seem to cover it all. I’ve been doing photography for over 30 years, I taken classes all over the world and NO ONE has ever made MORE sense or explained in such detail as Damien. The raw class was extraordinary and I plan to go back and apply ALL that I’ve learned to my past files.

Stephani, Kentucky

Thanks so much again Damien. You are endlessly patient, answer all my questions so quickly (no matter how tedious!) and explained things in such a straightforward and gentle way. Am excited to be giving images another go, rather then cringing at the thought of going in circles trying to white balance, sort out colour, noise reduction, etc. You are amazing!

Kylie, Queensland

Oh my goodness! I can’t believe how much I have been missing all this time without knowing what to do with RAW files. Blown away with what I have learnt at every step of the class. Highly recommended and I encourage anyone who is hesitating to just do it! The class itself is so well presented and flows perfectly. It must have taken HOURS to put together, well done and thank you Damien!!

Christina, England

I love this class it has helped me so much! I’ve already received compliments that my photos have improved. I now know the histogram a lot better. I feel more confident with my Raw edit workflow. This class is so worth it and very necessary!

Thank you so much Damien!

Janell, Texas

Damien’s RAW class is fantastic! I was hesitant to take it since I’m not brand new to editing. I learned a lot of great information and saw an immediate improvement in my work. The class is easy to follow and great for the beginner and intermediate level! (Can’t say anything for advanced since I don’t consider myself to be there yet.)

Timorah, Virginia

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

Love. This. Class. Damien’s easy to understand explanations and examples made understanding how to clean edit so simple! By the time I was done with the class, I was in awe at how easy it was to obtain great white balance, exposure, and contrast! I never realized how often I was undoing what I had done simply because I didn’t understand the foundations of clean editing in RAW. Thank you, Damien, for opening up a whole new world in editing for me!

Sarah, Ohio

Damien’s raw class was clear and easy to follow, and gave me a plan of action for processing my raw files instead just guessing. It really helped my images look more professional. I can now feel more confident handing my images to clients knowing they are processed correctly! Thank You Damien!

Joy, New York
