Hours of tuition
If you’re brand new to Lightroom Classic, or simply too scared to try it, you are not alone. In fact, Lightroom is the second most frequent thing I get asked for support on, after Photoshop, with people constantly asking: “is there anything for beginners?” Often, the student will sign up for an online one-to-one to go through Lightroom basics, but in an hour we can’t get through everything with practice time too.
So, after wondering how I can handhold everyone to confidence in Lightroom Classic, I ended up creating this course which contains 31 lessons and a few extra notes and signposts along the way! In this course, we’re going to cover:
- An introduction to Lightroom Classic
- How to handle your files
- Organisation, filters and sorting
- Editing in Lightroom from end to end
- Efficiency & productivity with Lightroom
- Exporting in various formats
And it’s all online so you can join from anywhere in the world!
Please note, this course is delivered in English.

Here are some things that people have said about Jess’s training in the past:
This workshop was one of the best things I have invested in for my business. What I learnt in a day was just invaluable and Jess has given me the knowledge to be able to implement it myself. I now feel confident that I would be able to complete an IPS session and I am looking forwards to putting it into practice. I cannot wait to attend more workshops and learn more from Jess in the future.
I absolutely loved every minute of this in person sales workshop. I am just about to start my business and I feel I learnt a lot, it was great to gain insights of working with clients, how to handle their objections. It was also great to hear other participants experience. It made me very excited to work on my brand, define my price list and implement this process. The workshop was packed with lots of valuable information, I would highly recommend it to everyone!
If anyone is thinking about a workshop with Jess – do it! Jess gave us lots of technical information but explained it in a simple and easy to understand way. The shoot in the afternoon was a learning experience in itself, learning what to look for and how to look for shoot locations. Jess gave support and feedback throughout the shoot, helping us develop and learn. The editing day was very informative, with Jess always on hand to give advice, explain techniques and help us learn what to look for in our images. It was an excellent weekend, thank you Jess!
What a wonderful weekend! Jess covered everything from the very beginning making us think about things differently. The shoot afternoon was a big learning curve, as was the editing day. Be prepared to learn lots, and be absolutely shattered but raring to go after the 2 days.
Jess is always on hand to offer advice and we have had many mentoring sessions over the years, on all aspects of the business, including design, branding and marketing, amongst other things. We have had one to one sessions both in person and online. Jess is very knowledgeable in all aspects of running a business and offers no-nonsense honest advice. She is reliable, efficient and exactly the person you need if you want to make your business stand out from the rest!
My one-to-one editing session with Jess was nothing short of amazing and no doubt, the best money I’ve spent on my photography education! Jess genuinely wanted to help and made sure I understood the reasons for what she was doing as far as editing my image. My favorite takeaways were her method of making the eyes pop and also the contouring. Both are now a part of every image I edit, there is just no going back on those. Aside from those two favorites, I learned several other techniques that I have found incredibly useful in understanding Photoshop better. I highly recommend doing a one-to-one session!
I would consider myself as an experienced dog photographer. I have been in the industry for 9 years and shot a lot of dogs. But still, I felt stuck with my marketing and sales sessions. So what did I do? I booked a One to One business session with Jess. And I am so happy with what I got out of that session. Jess asks the right questions to get the thought process started. She listened to what I had to say. And gave great advice that is possible for me to implement!
Before I ordered I thought that one hour would be a too long session. Could we have enough subjects to talk about for one hour? Oh was I wrong. That hour went so fast. And there was never a second of silence. Just great information and conversation all the time. So thank you so much Jess! I will work on everything we talked about and I will order a new session later to ask all the question that arose after we were finished.
I joined this workshop to learn more about photo’ editing, but I learned so much more than this. I learned that the editing is like the candle on your birthday cake. It finishes it off well, but it’s really not that important. Jess is a very talented teacher with so much knowledge & a great way of delivering that knowledge. If anyone is in two minds about whether this workshop is worth the money, then my answer would be yes. Every single penny & then some.
Jess’ advice was honest, practical and to the point. An hours session has kicked me into gear and given me a whole bunch to work on. Would I recommend? Wholeheartedly. Will I be booking another session? Definitely.
All I can say if you do not attend this you are missing out!
