Raw Class Testimonials

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.

The wealth of information he packs into the lessons are amazing.

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

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’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

I had so many lightbulb moments during this class; it totally blew my expectations out of the water. Before starting, I thought I had a fairly good grasp of the concepts covered in this class, and just wanted a quick refresher before going on to other classes, but boy was I wrong! I didn’t know before how much I didn’t know. Now I have a much better understanding of why to make certain editing choices and why to do things in a certain order. I feel much more in control of my editing process, so that good outcomes will not be lucky (and inconsistent), but rather the result of conscious choices and consistent application. Oh, and did I mention how much TIME this knowledge will save me when editing?

Eden, California

Thanks to Damien’s RAW class, my processing takes HALF the time it used to.It really is so easy to follow along with him – he has a great way of explaining things that makes it easy to understand!

Christina, Michigan

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

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.

Jai, Texas

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

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

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 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 edited over 200 photos (from a wedding) the last 2 days in probably a quarter of the time it used to take me. It feels good to know exactly what the sliders do, what I need to accomplish in RAW, and edit with purpose instead of playing around until I get it right.

Jami, Ohio

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 just got finished with Damien’s Raw Class. It was amazing. I *thought* I understood why I was doing certain things in Raw…but now I realize I was very wrong. I feel like I have improved 100% since taking the class! I definitely recommend it to everyone! It was SO easy to understand and Damien explains things like he is talking to a friend instead of acting talking like an ‘instructor’ who knows more than you do. I’m so happy I spent the money!

Rosanna, Ohio

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

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 tutorials rock! I have several books on Lightroom and Photoshop, but after taking Damien’s raw class everything is so clear and better explained than in any of those books. Taking the RAW class gave me the confidence in my workflow that I needed and now I KNOW I am taking all the right steps to create my own style of processing. Thanks Damien!

Lauren, Florida

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

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

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

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

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

Wow! I was a bit hesitant about signing up for the RAW class as Id used Photoshop and Lightroom for a number of years so thought I knew it all. How wrong I was. Yes I knew what the sliders were, but not how to use them.. to really use them. The course has been a revelation all the things I got frustrated with (like how to correct white balance properly), and searched the internet for answers to, are here. Highly recommended and worth every penny!

Andy, South Wales

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

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

Awesome! Thank you so much for providing this class!! So much of what I was doing in raw was a complete guessing game for me ~ I’m glad I have the background of what I’m doing, when I’m doing it!!
