I found David via Google search to teach me the basics of photo editing in Lightroom Classic. I... have an online jewellery business and had images taken and edited by different photographers. My two requirements were to make the jewellery sparkle and set them on an absolute white background. After a lot of hits and misses, I decided to do it myself. The only thing was that I had tried and tried to teach myself editing in Lightroom and it was a disaster. David was my saviour. He is a master of communication, knowledge and professionalism. We spent one hour remotely and it was the best hour! I learnt so much and now my images sing. Thank you David.read more

I initially found David via a google search and made contact and I am oh so glad I did.I can... pretty much sum David up in one word and that'd be genius.I'd always been a bit scared of Lightroom and photoshop however David took the time to explain not only how the front end GUI worked but also a bit about the back end and that alone has made the whole user experience so much easier.I am now able to make what are literally minor adjustments to my images but those minor adjustments for me are huge.Not everyone can sit down and read a book and do things I can't I need to be shown and that's what David did.I have no doubt I'll be calling on him again from time to time fix my catalogue stuff up's, he really is like finding a new adobe lifeline.I can't recommend David and his services high enough. Thank you for doing what you do and for making it available to people like us. Good luck in your future endeavours mate.read more

I contacted David to help me learn some photoshop skills quickly in order to assist me with a... design job application. I learnt so much in just a 3hr session that I managed to prepare a great presentation. I also ended up with a job offer! I wouldn’t hesitate recommending his services. Thanks again David!read more

I was desperate to find the resources I needed to help me gain a deeper understanding of the... machinations of Photoshop. In my quest, I discovered that there was no shortage of training both on line and in the classroom. Whilst my online experience was helpful, It did not provide me with the specific outcomes I was looking for nor did it give me the instantaneous feedback I needed. I am an impatient learner. David gave me the immediacy I was looking for. I learnt more in my first two private at home lessons with David than I did in my previous six months on line experiences. He knows his stuff and importantly, he knows how to tailor his teaching style to the needs of his client. Well done David and thank you. I look forward to our next session.read more
