Lightroom - From Camera to Print

"As well as being an outstanding photographer, Dave is a very skilled communicator. He has a detailed knowledge and understanding of the features of Lightroom based on years of experience. Equally importantly, though, he has the ability to teach Lightroom to photographers of all levels of ability in an extremely clear and supportive way in the very comfortable surroundings of his newly-designed studio. I worked with Dave as he developed his Lightroom course. I found it to be one of the most enjoyable and inspiring experiences not only of my photographic career but of my teaching career too. I wish him every success with this exciting new course." - Andy Hall, photographer of A Sense of Belonging to Scotland
