*NOTE: This course teaches you how to work with Lightroom Classic, not Lightroom CC.

Some of the bad reviews and ratings are from people who thought this course was about Lightroom CC. They got confused because it looked different than in the course, and thus they gave a bad rating.

The difference between Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC: Lightroom CC is the new cloud-based photo service of Adobe that works across desktop, mobile, and web. Lightroom Classic is the desktop-focused digital photography product.

In many ways, Lightroom CC is more user-friendly, but it also has fewer tools at its disposal. While this course teaches you how to work with Lightroom Classic and Photoshop, you will have no problem using Lightroom CC if you know how to use all the tools in Lightroom Classic. Both versions have the same tools. Lightroom Classic simply offers more in-depth editing possibilities and tools.

Therefore, Lightroom Classic is also a recommended program for a photographer to know how to use.*


“Photography is the story I fail to put into words.” – Destin Sparks

You are about to learn how to tell your story even better.

Just like The Ultimate Photography Course for Beginners, this course is focused on digging right into the true essentials of post-processing and editing.

This means the techniques and skills that you will learn here, are the ones that will truly take your photos way beyond simply okay, giving them drama, impact and that wow factor. 

All that without countless hours of meaningless and unnecessary rambling on subjects that don’t really matter. Everything that you will learn in this course are techniques and skills I’ve learned from numerous other professional photographers throughout my years in the profession.

I’ve combined all of that information into a well-presented package that not only looks good, but is good – guaranteed.

My mission here with this course is to guide you step by step, slowly but surely through the myriad of possibilities that post processing and editing offers you and your photography.

And don’t worry, for those who are new to Lightroom or Photoshop, there are lectures to help you understand all the necessary tools, and if you have any further questions at all at any stage, you just have to ask, I am here with you on this journey. 

Now, brace yourself and get ready to be blown away by just how much better your photos will start to look when using the numerous easy to advanced techniques and skills you are about to learn. 

It’s going to be a lot of fun, so please enjoy the course!

An honest review and rating is always appreciated and will help me to make any necessary improvements for the course, as well helping to get more people involved so they too can benefit from the beauty of photography. Many thanks!
