Raw Class Testimonials
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.
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.
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!
Damien’s Raw Class is amazing! I have shot in raw for a couple of years and played around with ACR and Lightroom but really had no idea of the benefits.I would recommend this class to anyone and everyone! Everything is so clearly explained and easy to understand. I have invested in other courses before and this one by far was the best money I have spent with regards to PS editing.Thank you, thank 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.
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.
I have just taken a 5 nights to go through Damien’s Raw course, for the first time. I have already learnt a lot. The course is easy to follow and Damien comes across as very knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you. Looking forward to practicing and reading through again.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Holy smokes, the raw class has rocked my world!!
I just completed the raw class tonight and it has totally changed (not to mention shorten) the way I edit. His teaching is so easy to follow and so precise you will be blown away.
The wealth of information he packs into the lessons are amazing.
The raw class was GREAT! I wasn’t sure if I needed it or not. I felt I had a pretty good understanding of ACR and Raw files. I knew if I moved certain sliders around I would get the desired effect, but now I actually KNOW what I’m doing when I’m moving them, I’m not just doing it willy nilly. Thanks so much!
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.

Thanks damien!!! I THOUGHT I knew how to edit in raw before this, but I was so wrong. I was doing everything by eye and not paying any attention to the histogram. Now I will never edit without taking it into consideration.
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!
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!
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!
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 😉
Damien’s Raw class was eye opening to me. It certainly cleared away the fog I have been wandering around in. I have read everything I can get my hands on about Photoshop and especially ACR and this was by far the clearest, most easy to understand explanations out there.
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!
The RAW class completely changed the way I edit and the way my images look – thank you!!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
