“I recently completed your Lightroom workshop which was presented by Brian.
Firstly I just wanted to give Brian a wrap as I found his methods of teaching and his presentation to be absolutely first class and a credit to your company. I have since emailed Brian with numerous questions and his responses have been, not only prompt but informative and friendly. At no point has it seemed an inconvenience for Brian to respond to my questions on both Lightroom and general photography related questions and this alone has made the experience with your school even more enjoyable and most importantly, personable.”— Shaun Ross
