Adobe Certified Expert Photoshop Lightroom

Two ways to get training:

Private training

Wouldn’t you rather spend your time out shooting than trying to figure things out on your own?

Private training can be done in-person (greater Portland OR area) or online anywhere in the world.

Classes, lectures, eCourses and workshops

Offered at a variety of locations, these are a great way to get started!

Rebecca is a wonderful resource for students. Her patience and good humor, as well as her ability to make complex ideas accessible make her a uniquely competent instructor. We are so pleased to have her as part of the Newspace community.” Thanks, Rebecca!!

 Newspace Center for Photography was a fabulous resource for Portland’s photo community, offering classes, workshops, studio space, darkroom, digital computer lab, gallery shows and terrific staff. I was honored to be an instructor before its closure in 2017.

  love love loved this class after buying 3 updates and still feeling totally lost!! Even with online classes, I would click a wrong thing no longer follow along!

Rebecca is an excellent teacher, provides a complete notebook to follow along.

I could ask questions as I was working along on my own computer and would get stuck, or do an online call with her between classes, if I had a question!

I am So Excited I finally feel confident to use this amazing program, even as a beginner!

I already was able to transform a few photos and I know this class will lead to years of a great enjoyment of photography!

I Highly recommend this class! Thanks SO much!!
