Raw Class Testimonials

Damien’s raw class was clear and easy to follow, and gave me a plan of action for processing my raw files instead just guessing. It really helped my images look more professional. I can now feel more confident handing my images to clients knowing they are processed correctly! Thank You Damien!

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Anna-Lena, North Carolina

The RAW class was so informative and eye opening and made things I’d been trying to learn just click (i.e. correct white balance and histograms). The training is presented in ‘bite-sized’ slides which make it easy to absorb the information before moving onto the next tidbit.I would recommend this class to anyone and have already started. Damien, Thank you so much for this incredible training!!

Crystal, Hawaii

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

Holy smokes, the raw class has rocked my world!!

Sara

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 πŸ™‚

Regina, Victoria

Yay! I just finished Damien’s Raw Class and it has been sooo helpful. I thought I had a good grasp before but now I know I was just adjusting things left right and centre with no underlying knowledge or consistency. This is going to speed up my workflow considerably!

Susan, Queensland

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”Β in this industry!

Angie, Florida

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

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

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

Hi, anyone wondering about doing Damien’s Raw Class, I have only one thing to say DO IT!!Β  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 πŸ™‚ *Big thumbs up*

Jacqui, Queensland

I’m a newbie and have never worked in Lightroom. Damien’s RAW class is well written and very easy to understand. I now have a clean edit workflow that I understand and love. Thanks Damien!

Nellie, Virginia

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

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

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

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 πŸ™‚ Thankyou for sharing your knowledge so generously Damien.

Lindy, Queensland

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

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 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 πŸ˜‰

Tara, Montana

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

Damien’s RAW class is AMAZING!!! The best money I’ve ever spent in my photography journey. I THOUGHT I knew how to process RAW images, and I was so, so wrong. My before and after is truly incredible and now I barely have to spend any time in Photoshop. Don’t think about it – just take this class!

Jennifer, California

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.

Meagan, Arkansas

Just finished taking Damien’s Raw Class. His way of teaching is informative and down to earth! I can now say that I no longer just play with the sliders, I actually know which ones to move and why! Thank you for a wonderful class! Worth every penny and more!

Jackie, Louisiana

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!
