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

I had dabbled in raw, but oh my gosh did I learn a lot! He is a wonderful instructor and made it seem so simple.

Sue, Michigan

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

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

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

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

Damien’s Raw class is FANTASTIC!! I have been fumbling around in ACR for a while, pushing sliders this way and that until a photo looked ‘better’ with no real understanding of what I was doing. Damien’s class explained everything in an interesting and straightforward manner without being too technical or overly simple.I loved the combination of written slides, video examples, and a teacher that answers your questions with lightning speed (despite being halfway around the world)! I can’t wait for other classes to be released. Thanks Damien!

Meredith, California

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 am taking your RAW class right now and just felt the need to stop for a moment and tell you how much I love it. I have never felt this in control of my editing.  Thank you for making a class that is affordable and absolutely full of the stuff we actually need!

Amber, North Carolina

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!

Stacie

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

I just finished Damien’s Raw Class last week and it was wonderful. If you’re on the fence, don’t hesitate. It was the best photography money I have spent in a long time.

Sarah, Massachusetts

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

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’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 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

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 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

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

I absolutely loved your layers and masks class. I love the way it was laid out, so easy to follow.

Emma, Brisbane

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.

Karen, Idaho

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

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

It’s really awesome and Damien does an excellent job of explaining clearly but simply. Damien is a great teacher!!! The skills I learned seemed so simple, yet I’d never known before what I should have been doing. I will say this: after Damien’s RAW class my pictures are MUCH more consistent & I’m immensely more pleased with my post-processing.

Gretchen, Texas

After reading through the RAW class a few times now and following the workflow, I feel like I am no longer sinking. This class is amazing! I am super excited to continue this journey and finally gain some confidence in the work I am doing. Thank you!

Loralie, Canada

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

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 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!
