Raw Class Testimonials

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.

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 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

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

Photographers – for anyone looking to take their editing to the next level, or even for newbies who aren’t exactly sure how sliders work, or how to read a histogram, or why to shoot in RAW… go take Damien’s classes. Heck, even if you’re an advanced user, TAKE HIS CLASSES. You will learn something, I promise!!!

Meagan, Arkansas

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.

Ry-Ann, Florida

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!

Jessica, Minnesota

If anyone here is still on the fence about taking Damien’s Raw class, DO IT! You won’t regret it! I could not be happier with the changes in my editing progress! A session that used to take me DAYS to edit is now done in a couple of hours, because I have the right framework coming out of ACR.  Seriously, this class is LIFE CHANGING!

Deanna, Maryland

I have been shooting RAW for about a year now and never really knew what I was doing in ACR or Lightroom. I just messed around with the sliders till I thought it looked good but never realizing what each one did. Yikes! After taking Damien’s class, I will never do that again. I don’t have to. He is so good at explaining each step and why you should do them in a certain order. He explains what you are doing to your image every step of the way with great examples.

Diane, Iowa

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

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 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

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

Damien’s teaching style is extremely easy to follow. He explains things in everyday terms and uses examples that are easy to relate to. In addition, he is lightning-fast about replying to questions!

Sarah, Wisconsin

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

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

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

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.

Danielle, Virginia

I recently completed Damien’s RAW class and it was an exceptional learning experience. I had pretty well given up on RAW as it just wasn’t working for me. Now I’m ready to tackle it again. The content is thorough, well organized and easy to understand. Damien is responsive to questions and comments; he makes the course available for a year for plenty of opportunity to review and ask questions as you practice what you’ve learned.

Joan

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 finished your RAW Class and have learned so much. Taking RAW images was new to me and therefore editing them was new for me. I thought I could figure it all out on my own but struggled. I invested into the class and learned so much. However, today is when I realized that I learned more than I thought I had learned. I had completely under-exposed a picture by pure accident and after about 2-3 clicks of that picture, I realized it and adjusted my settings on my camera. However, that under-exposed picture was by far the best one out of that series. I figured I would try to do the things I learned from class to save the picture.I was soooo happy that I was able to. The client LOVES the image and I did show them the before/after and they were amazed. I would have never have been able to do this prior to the class. I still have sooo much more to learn and frequently go back to the material. Damien you rock.

Kristine

The RAW class completely changed the way I edit and the way my images look – thank you!!

Sam, Western Australia

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 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 just have to say – I finally wrapped up one of my before the RAW classorders and I feel the need to go back and re-edit EVERY IMAGE! Taking that class really, genuinely brought me to the next level. I knew most of the content, but you brought it together in a way that made the pieces work together. THANK YOU!!! TOTALLY worth it! and it doesn’t even take vast amounts of time to get through.

Tonya, Indiana

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

The Raw class was perfect – just what I needed! PS is intimidating, but Damien makes it easy to understand. Worth every penny!!

Ginger, Georgia

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

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

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!
