David brings lots of patience, a sense of humor and complete dedication to your learning experience. He has thousands of hours of Lightroom coaching experience and is the top rated WyzAnt Lightroom tutor in the U.S. Below are testimonials from some of his clients for both online and in-person sessions.
“In one session David was able to review my existing lightroom library and back ups. He suggested changes that will make my workflow process much more efficient and my photo library more secure. Not a minute was wasted during the session – I feel like I got more out of this two hour session than I ever could have gotten from a group workshop since it was specifically tailored to my needs. I would highly recommend David and will use him again in the future as needed. Thank You!”

“David is a Clear and Careful Teacher”
David is a clear and careful teacher who tailors his approach to the individual student. He helped me organize an unruly collection of images in a way that I understood and I look forward to working with him in the future to further hone my Lightroom skills.

I’m an old film photographer who recently switched to digital … D.A. brought my questions down to simple explanations that made perfect sense. He’s a natural teacher in the best sense. It’s great that DA learned Lightroom as a photographer. That enabled him to speak to me Photographer to Photographer.

“I really needed the skills that David was able to bring to this task. I had been using Lightroom for a while, but never really grasped the organisational complexities. I think it would have been impossible for me to get it all sorted out on my own. David is a master, showed me exactly how to set it up, sorted out all my old setups, and now I’m all set. Next lesson will be to start improving my LR techniques, looking forward to it. Bottom line, incredibly grateful to find somebody with David’s depth of knowledge who could work with me on my setup in a custom way.”

“There may only be a handful of individuals in this city with David’s knowledge and experience. He’s an excellent tutor: patient, relaxed, and flexible with lesson plans covering whatever I’m curious about as opposed to being fixed on a particular lesson structure. The learning is fun and efficient and I feel very comfortable asking questions. We’ve worked on Lightroom, Photoshop, and studio lighting techniques- I’m confident that with David’s help, I’ll be able to reach my goals much sooner that I originally anticipated.”

“Patience and Focus on My Project’s Objectives and Time Frame.“
“Helped organize my 15K photos — with steps for future maintenance. Helped created the project’s library in Lightroom CC . Wow!! I’m a happy camper! Can’t wait for my next session. David is a godsend and well worth his fees when you have hit the wall. I look forward to sharing the fruits of my labor with David, my go to guy!!!”

“Expert and Patient Tutor”
I contacted David after some struggles with a younger and less experienced tutor. He has sorted everything out in just two sessions. He keeps the sessions moving forward and has a great sense of humor and compassion. If you need any guidance in Lightroom, you’d be very happy and relieved to work with David.

In over three years of studying with David, I have learned a tremendous amount about every aspect of photography: I’ve learned to take better photos, organize my photo library with Lightroom, to select my best photos from the thousands I take, develop them using Lightroom’s vast and ever-increasing set of tools, and create beautiful photo books. David is not only extremely knowledgeable, but also an excellent teacher who is a pleasure to study with.

David was very helpful in that he was able to cut to the quick in helping me learn the Lightroom and printing skills I needed. He also recommended some very helpful books so I can read more. Like most I learn by gathering information in different ways: lessons, reading, experimenting, repeat. After some reading and experimenting I will no doubt be working with David for another lesson.
