Raw Class Testimonials

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

The RAW course was exactly what I was looking to find. It is comprehensive, yet concise. Your method of work flow, consistent explanations of WHY to do something, and then how to follow through were easy to follow. The video clips augment the slides perfectly, and the lightly sprinkled humor made it enjoyable as well. Thank you!

When Damien said I needed to that I take the Raw Class before the Levels Class, I wasn’t too pleased because I thought I already had a handle on ACR. Was I ever wrong. This class touched on the basics in detail that I should have known and didn’t. I really appreciated the way that it was presented both in text form to explain theories, then in video to show examples. Then the icing on the cake was the Raw Processing Workflow flowchart. With this chart I don’t have to try to remember what I learned, it is now right at my fingertips next to my computer as I edit a photo. Thanks so much Damien.

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.

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

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

The raw class is AMAZING. I’m on the last module and learned so much. I had no no idea how to approach editing and now I do. Thanks Damien for a such clear explanation of such difficult topic.

Irina, New York

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

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

Damien’s RAW class taught me more valuable information than the dozens of other online photoshop or lightroom classes have ever taught me. His simple instruction notes finally helped me quit guessing what I was doing and instead made me confident that I KNEW what I was doing. I can now process in RAW in a quarter of the time that I used to. And rather than fiddling with every button until it looks right, I now follow a simple set of steps that gets me to my desired results… CONSISTENTLY! I cannot thank you enough for the simple and straightforward instruction. You have saved me hours of editing!

Lauren

The RAW class is so amazing! Damien really helped me understand exactly what I’m doing to a RAW file in ACR. I can now quickly process an image and get consistent, amazing results. Thank you Damien! 5 STARS!

Jeannie, Alabama

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

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

Thank you so much Damien… At last a teacher that has taught me to understand and use RAW and Photoshop – Many have tried in the past and failed!

Gill, UK

Everyone new to photography post processing should start with the raw class first! I was getting so discouraged trying to figure out how to edit and process my photos and your class was exactly what I needed!

Kristin, Georgia

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

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

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

Have just completed the Clean Processing in RAW class and have new confidence in processing images. Damien’s communication style makes the complex aspects all so clear. It’s fantastic and so worthwhile. Thanks Damien.

Kristina, Queensland

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

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

Hi, anyone wondering about doing Damien’s Raw Class, I have only one thing to say DO IT!!  I have just completed the class, AND the support is still there to help me perfect what I have learnt. Damien, great class and very easy to understand and follow 🙂 *Big thumbs up*

Jacqui, Queensland

I seriously considered skipping the RAW Class and going to the Layers Class as I have used Bridge/ACR/Photoshop to process my photos for several years and understood ACR but decided if I was going to give Levels a fair chance I needed to do RAW Damien’s way. I can honestly say I have more than got my money’s worth +++. It is one thing to “understand” the sliders, another to know when and how much to use each. Having someone critiquing your images is priceless. I purposely choose difficult images to process in order to benefit the most. Just do it!! You won’t regret it.

Nancy, Texas

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

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

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

The RAW class is fantastic! I finally understand how to successfully and quickly process a RAW file. A lot goes into getting a great shot in camera, but Damien has made it so easy for me to enhance the RAW photo to create a beautiful piece of art.If you are at all hesitant to take this class, let me say that you will NOT be disappointed and you will come away with a TON of knowledge that will really help you get a great edit every time. AND…you have access to it for a WHOLE year!I don’t want my photos to look like someone else’s, I want to put my own artistic touch and vision in my photos. Damien encourages you and gives you the skills to be able to accomplish that. 5 STARS all the way!!

Jeannie, Alabama

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