Course: Lightroom for Photographers
Photography is my passion while teaching is my profession. Not surprisingly I enjoy studying
photography in workshop settings with the excellent instruction and dedicated and knowledgeable
teachers I have always experienced and expect from Rocky Mountain School of Photography.
Recently I took an RMSP foundation workshop called "Lightroom for Photographers" in Seattle taught
by David Marx. I had been introduced to David about four years earlier during a Seattle Photo Weekend
and remembered him as being one of the best teachers I had ever had. Then, as in this recent workshop,
David far exceeded my desires and expectations as a great instructor. He clearly communicates his
thorough understanding of Lightroom and then reinforces the understanding and skills through exercises
that are practiced until his students themselves begin to master some of the techniques in the software.
All of this is done with great patience and fun and a willingness to help students after class in
addition to providing the students with a copy of his lessons to install in their computers for later
reference. David was assisted by Roxanne, who graciously helped the workshop participants to feel
comfortable, solve any problems and enjoy our experience.
In addition to this foundation workshop, I have taken four Photo Weekends and have also enjoyed the fine
instruction of Tony Rizzuto, Tim Cooper, and Doug Johnson. Over the years I have taken many workshops with
various schools and photographers but consider RMSP and their instructors as the best that I have experienced.
Needless to say, I look forward to future workshops with them.
