Lightroom Workshops

Lightroom  Workshops

In these digital imaging workshops, we explore Adobe’s Photoshop  Lightroom.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is considered the industry standard and by far the most popular photo imaging software on the market.

I also extensively use and teach Lightroom to organise, protect, edit and catalogue your image libraries.

One on one training can take place at my place, or up to two people in the comfort of your own home, this is available throughout the Hutt Valley and Wellington region.

My getting started workshops will jump start you into the world of Photoshop or Lightroom. The workshops are charged by the hour, plus petrol costs. This way you will get great value for your money. Even better yet, share the cost with a friend and save money!

I also do workshops globally via the internet through screen sharing with the aid of a webcam with services such as Skype, Google hangouts and FB Messenger. Contact me for further details and how to pay.


The workshops are broken into six specific units

Each unit covers an hour’s tuition and you can mix and match any two units for any one sitting. A discount is offered if you book a package deal which includes 6 full units.
Space is limited to 2 participants per session, in order to give each person plenty of one on one time with the instructor. The price is an hourly rate so you can save money by sharing the cost with a friend or partner.

Units are priced at $55.00 per unit with a maximum of 2 people per class.

Whole package Discount of 6 units either at your home or mine = $300.00 plus travel expenses when applicable.


Unit 1: What’s under the hood

We start off with a quick general overview of Lightroom then we set up your workspace and the way you want to view your images and how Lightroom displays relevant information about your images. We then look at what is a data-based catalogue and go on to setting up your catalogue preferences.

Unit 2: Organising yourself

In the second of our units we start off by organising your folder structure on your hard drives and telling Lightroom where the folders are, then we look at setting up your all-important backup system.

Unit 3: Importing images into Lightroom

In the third of our units, we start off by setting up your import preferences i.e applying presets, keywords and metadata. This tells Lightroom what information you want to display along with your images. We then move on to learn about importing from an existing folder on your hard drive and external hard drives and flash cards.

Unit 4: Sorting your images

Adding unique keywords, using the paintbrush, presets and metadata. Also ranking and flagging your images and what’s the difference between the two options.

Renaming, removing and deleting.

Unit 5: Editing your images

Learn all about non-destructive editing, capture sharpening, setting the correct exposure and white balance.

Unit 6: Advanced organisation

In this unit, we will learn how to speed up our workflow using smart collections. We will round the course off with learning to store our presets with our catalogue and getting your images out of Lightroom.

Should you feel the need to delve deeper into Lightroom and require additional help, more advanced training is available on request.
