The info:

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.

Section 1: Introduction

In the first section of the course, Jess runs through the basics of Lightroom Classic from right at the very start.

Section 2: Fundamentals

In this section, Jess moves through the core modules available and covers off practical methods of file handling.

Section 3: Application

No stone is left unturned in the walkthrough of the develop module to leave you able to follow any workflow + efficiency tips!

Section 4: Exporting

After editing or organising images, you’ll want to export them for use elsewhere. This section covers exporting in depth.

{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.

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.

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!

Not only is Jess an incredibly talented photographer, she’s also a phenomenal teacher! The workshop was challenging but Jess and her team walk you through every step of the way – the amount I’ve learnt from it is incredible! I was nervous about attending an advanced workshop because I don’t think of myself as ‘advanced’ but it was one of the best decisions I made. Such a fantastic experience and I can’t wait to put everything I’ve been taught into practice! Thank you 😀

This course is absolutely perfect for beginners. Extremely clear and easy to understand, taking you through all of the tools you need in an easy to navigate step by step format. For anyone struggling with Photoshop this is an essential purchase!!! You can learn at your own pace, in your own time and you will be confident in the foundations of Photoshop by the end. Cannot recommend enough.

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.

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!

I had a great couple of days, learning so much from Jess both in terms of looking at potential locations as well as a full editing workflow. As part of the workshop we were given a very professionally put together book covering all topics of the workshop, this was a very welcome surprise. All in all the workshop was extremely good value for money and I will be attending more of Jess’s workshops in the future.

The workshop was very well organised and it was very obvious how much time and effort had been put in to make sure everything ran smoothly. Jess was super helpful and made sure that everyone got as much out of the weekend as possible. I particularly liked book as it will be great to use as a reference point going forward.

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.

    Maybe some of you are like me.. totally carried away with pet photography… and then you realise what a mess it creates on your time budget, because you just run out of time to do all the edits!!
    That is where this class comes in, it teaches you how to batch edit and how to use your time efficiently. And many more useful little tricks..
    What can I say.. another great Jess Workshop. Highly recommended.

  2. Lynn Busse (verified owner)

    I can say I’m really glad I took it. I could make my way around Lightroom before but now I have a much better understanding of how I can make my workflow more efficient which is huge! (especially for my dog sport events which have hundreds of photos!) Also got some good tips on what tools lightroom has for editing that I wasn’t familiar with…the new masking tools in particular. Definitely recommend for beginners and even more experienced users who want to maximize their skills and time management. Another great ThatTogSpot offering!

  3. Janice Mcinally (verified owner)

    I have been waiting a while to do this course, so glad I have finally managed to do it, and way Jess explains everything in here is so easy to understand, I now have the knowledge to move forward with lightroom, just got to practice, Truely a easy to understand course, masking and using the brushes, was a subject I struggled with now I understand how to use them, and my files are now in order. thankyou Jess

  4. Tracy Patton (verified owner)

    I truly enjoyed this course. I have been dabbling in Lightroom for years now and knew that I was not utilizing it to its full potential. Now, I have so many more skills and can’t wait to practice it more and more. Thanks for this course, worth every penny!

  5. Toni Provencher (verified owner)
