Patient, thorough, fun, understandable training
Lightroom, workflow, file management, backup strategies, general photography and photo sharing

Adobe Certified Expert Photoshop Lightroom

For passionate amateur and professional photographers of all ability levels

Two ways to get training:

Private training

Sure, there are lots of free online videos and classes that you can spend hours sifting through to find answers when you’re stuck, but maybe you’d 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.

Scheduled classes, lectures and workshops

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

Let me know if you’d like me to come and speak with your group at no charge.

How about a Gift Certificate? Great idea!

  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!!
