Raw Class Testimonials

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

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 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It’s crazy that I have read so many blogs and articles about how to’s in ACR and WOW.. you are by far the best $ I have spent. I love that you speak to us as if we are right in front of you. The videos get to the point. Examples are perfect. Simple & 125% helpful. Recommend to anyone.

Kathy, Florida

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

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!

Joy, New York

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

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

Tracy, Minnesota

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

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

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

Sara

I was increasingly frustrated with my lack of knowledge with what do I do first when editing. Do I adjust exposure, blacks, midtones, WB….what first, what second? It was ALL covered in the raw course! I had a HUGE lightbulb moment when I discovered how important a few key steps were that I was missing altogether in my workflow. Thanks to Damien I’m on the road to cleaner processing and quicker processing!

Mel, Ontario

I just completed the Clean Processing in RAW and I am so impressed with this class! I learned a ton, and the surprising part was what he taught was so basic, but somehow EXACTLY what I was missing and needed to learn. Damien has a way of teaching that is so easy to understand and follow, provides SEVERAL examples & is over the top accessible & helpful. I HIGHLY recommend taking this class!!

Amy, California

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 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 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.

Maru, Florida

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

Have just completed the Clean Processing in RAW class and have new confidence in processing images. Damien’s communication style makes the complex aspects all so clear. It’s fantastic and so worthwhile. Thanks Damien.

Kristina, Queensland

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.

Alisa, Minnesota

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

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

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.

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 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!
