“Great Tutor – Great Lesson”

“I spent a few hours with David both shooting and editing my photos and was extremely pleased. David carefully selected a location for our shoot that provided me with the opportunity to learn and employ different photographic techniques and to deal with different lighting problems. David is a working professional photographer and effectively passed along a slew of practical and theoretical tips about composition, layering, depth of field and other matters that I was able to put to good use during our time together.

I especially enjoying taking a series of pictures that we later stitched into a large panorama when we progressed to the editing portion of our time together. David has a deep knowledge of photography and is a wiz with Lightroom and Photoshop – and with Mac computers in general. Among other things, David reviewed and explained all of my Lightroom and Photoshop preferences and helped me understand the different options and coordinate my choices and actions so that I could quickly and efficiently transfer images between Lightroom and Photoshop.

David is an enthusiastic, organized and patient teacher who inspires you to grow as a photographer and to learn more about the creative and practical side of photo editing. I look forward to our next time together and recommend David as a photographic and editing coach without any hesitation or reservation.”

“Excellent Tutor!”

“In one session David was able to review my existing lightroom library and backups. He suggested changes that will make my workflow process much more efficient and my photo library more secure. Not a minute was wasted during the session – I feel like I got more out of this two hour session than I ever could have gotten from a group workshop since it was specifically tailored to my needs. I would highly recommend David and will use him again in the future as needed. Thank You!”

“LIGHTROOM GURU”

“David was excellent! My primary goal was to transfer my Aperture Library into Lightroom and David successfully accomplished that! He is very knowledgeable re: Lightroom. He also gave me a couple of “Lightroom tutorials.” Overall, the best compliment I can give is that I was very impressed with David as a tutor and I would definitely use him again!”

“Expert and Patient Tutor”

“I contacted David after some struggles with a younger and less experienced tutor. He has sorted everything out in just two sessions. He keeps the sessions moving forward and has a great sense of humor and compassion. If you need any guidance in Lightroom, you’d be very happy and relieved to work with David.”

“Misplaced about 16,000 photos”

I am not very technical and although I thought I had properly managed my Lightroom catalogue, somehow I had misplaced about 16,000 photos and thought they were lost and I was absolutely devastated. I explained the situation to David who carried out a thorough search, found the images, helped me rebuild the catalogue and put systems in place to ensure my images are secured and properly backed up. He was cautious, knowledgeable and I recommend him without reservation, to anyone facing lightroom problems.
