I’m happy to share that I’m offering 1 on 1 Lightroom Training Sessions. With remote learning a familiar concept after the last 2 years, the timing was right to convert the Lightroom Masterclass I presented just before lockdown in 2020 to a personalised online session tailor made to your requirements and schedule.
The Lightroom Training Sessions are available for Lightroom Classic (the desktop version) and Lightroom Mobile, the perfect app to edit on the fly. Whether you’ve worked with the software before and want a refresher, learn a few of my tips and tricks or a beginner starting out fresh, each session is built to your requirements for maximum results.
Topics for Lightroom Classic includes Workflow, Importing & Exporting, The Develop Module, The new Masking Tool, Presets for Editing and Exporting and editing the same image with both Lightroom and Photoshop. I can also show you how to create a Stop Motion Video in less than 5 minutes with Lightroom and Photoshop.
For Lightroom Mobile we will cover Light, Colour, Effects, Detail, Optics and Crop, Creating your own Presets to make editing faster and how to Sync to your Lightroom Desktop.
Sessions are booked per hour needed (it is advisable to book 2 hours if you are just starting with Lightroom Classic). Open to all levels of proficiency. Once you have booked your session I will make contact to discuss your needs and book a time. Click here for more details on the and to book.
I am also starting “Listening Partner” sessions as an answer to requests I’ve received in the past.
Being a photographer or stylist can be a lonely job. Most of the time you are the person on set that the client and your team looks at to have all the ideas and solutions during a shoot. Sometimes you need a soundboard for a creative idea or concept or you just feel stuck and uninspired. Maybe you have a client that expects the world but do not want to pay you, and just want a partner who knows the business to chat to and get perspective on how to manage that client (or walk away). Perhaps you are starting out and need a few pointers of where to begin your career or how to take the next step.
These Listening Partner sessions are for you to chat to someone who has been there, started a food photography career (not having a clue where to start) and have felt stuck more than once. I am here to listen, give advice (creative or technical), discuss ideas and spark inspiration. I am the listening parter who knows how you feel but will not steal your clients or shoots.
Sessions are booked per hour needed. Once you have booked your session I will make contact to discuss your needs and book a time Click here to book.
Just shout if you need any information or want to discuss your needs.
