Raw Class Testimonials

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

Tracy, Minnesota

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 can’t say enough good things about Damien’s classes. My only regret is not taking them sooner. The material easy to understand and he’s so helpful in the class groups answering questions and giving critique.

Michelle, Texas

Love love love, Damien’s Raw class. His examples and videos are amazing. He is able to take what seems so complicated and explain it in a matter that a light bulb goes off. His teaching method is remarkable.

Susan, Virginia

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

Lynnea, Alberta

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.

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

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

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

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

The Raw class was perfect – just what I needed! PS is intimidating, but Damien makes it easy to understand. Worth every penny!!

Ginger, Georgia

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

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 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!

Amanda

Damien’s RAW class was awesome! I’ve been using Photoshop for a while now and have numerous books on it. However, I found Damien’s tutorial easy to understand and he explains ‘why’ more than other tutorials I’ve read. I love the variety of teachings (ie theory, video & pictures), it kept my interest and ‘the penny dropped’ on so many occasions. Well done Damien, you truly did a brilliant job.

Natalie, Queensland

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

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

One of the most well written and helpful classes I have taken! Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge! I feel so much more confident with RAW and feel like this course made my workflow so much smoother and with better end results.

Rebecca, California

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

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

The Raw Class has totally changed the way I view editing my photos. It has really opened up my eyes to the power of raw. Previously I would only briefly use ACR and/or Lightroom and move straight into Photoshop. Now I feel more confident and knowledgeable to process more in raw and leave the more specific editing to Photoshop.

Ry-Ann, Florida

I finished Damien’s Raw class yesterday night, and I highly recommend it! My biggest Aha moment was: Finally understanding what to do with recovery and fill light in ACR (I never used them… now I know I will, and I know when and why!)

Lisa, France

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 joined the RAW class because I had no idea where I have to start when I edited the photos. I pretty much guessed and tried different buttons on LR and see whether it worked or not. I definitely see a difference on the workflow in editing and in the result itself. From many minutes to a few minutes.The explanation in the tuts makes the sense why I have to do some processing first then the others. I have less worries now when the sooc pics are not good in terms of lightings and wb. Thank you, Damien 🙂

Regina, Victoria

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

Sam, Western Australia

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

Damiens know-how made my editing process TREMENDOUSLY quicker, and my end product RIDICULOUSLY better. My only complaint is that I spent too much money on actions before taking his raw class. If you rely on actions, stop. Take his class instead.

Danielle, Virginia

I signed up for the Clean Processing in RAW class in part out of curiosity and in part out of never having experienced any sort of post-processing training. Heretofore, what I have learned about post-processing has been through trial and error. I somewhat blindly twiddled this and tweaked that to arrive at an image that I found pleasing. I didn’t totally understand what I had done. After completing my first run through of Damien’s class, I now have a better grasp of not only what I’m actually trying to accomplish but also the tools at my disposal.

Charles, Texas

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.
