"WOW...Without question the best money I have spent all year!"
WOW your tutorial on Lightroom was fantastic! I’ve been using the program for about 5 years now, purchased books, etc., but I've discovered so much more from your videos in the shortest period of time. I especially appreciated the introductory section on organizing your files. Thanks for connecting me to the full power aspects of Lightroom. My picture processing has really improved. Without question the best money I have spent all year..

"I thought I knew Lightroom...but you've completely changed how I work!"
I've been using Lightroom for nearly a year now and I thought I knew it pretty well, but I love your approach and the way you explain the many functions of the software. I've only watched the first four videos, but you've already completely changed the way I work. Really looking forward to seeing the test of the course. I've also signed up for the PS course too. Please keep the courses coming.

"After $1000 spent on other Lightroom classes . . . Now I finally get it!"
I have spent over $1000 on three separate Lightroom classes in New York City and I still struggled. Signing up for Phil Steele’s Lightroom tutorial was the best move I ever made—his instructions are clear, concise and I finally “got it” after reviewing his amazing simple, uncomplicated lessons. He methodically takes you through each step and gives some amazing shortcuts and tips, as well. Now I have confidentially organized over 10,000 photos thanks to his instructions. This is truly the best photography money I have spent!

"Your method of teaching is BY FAR the clearest and most useful."
Your method of teaching is BY FAR the clearest and most useful I've come across to date. I've been using Lightroom since version 2 and recently upgraded to version 4. I've never felt comfortable with it and FINALLY have found a way to learn this stuff. :) Yeah I've got a couple of books, etc. They're almost useless by comparison. So thanks very much!

"This is the best class that I have ever taken online, and I’ve taken many!"
I am just part way through your Lightroom training and I felt compelled to write to you immediately. This is the best class that I have ever taken online, and I’ve taken many. I have done the online Kelby training for two years, and I go to many of their seminars, but many of those are advanced classes, and nobody explains the Lightroom basics quite the way you do. Thank you!

"I purchased 3 other Lightroom courses, but yours is the best by a mile!"
I must pay you a huge compliment on your course. I purchased 3 other courses for Lightroom, but yours is the best for me by a country mile! Your structure and delivery truly allows for the first timer and gives inspiration to jump in and get started. Genuine thanks for a great course!

"I went from being stumped to processing photos almost overnight. Great job!"
With your Lightroom course, I have been able to go from being stumped to processing photos almost overnight. Your organization is logical and easy to follow, and you manage to cover the essential stuff in a way I could absorb and understand quickly. Great Job!

"I am sure glad I ordered this course...I am becoming a believer in Lightroom!"
I just wanted to drop a line to let you know how much I have enjoyed and learned by watching your new Lightroom video course. I recently shot a wedding with an accompanying bridal shoot, so I have about 1500 images to process. Normally, I would be doing them in Photoshop, but I decided to take the plunge with Lightroom. I am sure glad I ordered this course, and have watched it first, before getting into the nitty-gritty. I am becoming a believer in Lightroom!

"One of the best investments I ever made in photography!"
I already know this is one of the best investments I've made in photography! I am exactly the photographer you describe in the introduction; I've had Lightroom for a year or so but haven't "really" used it. My masters degree is in Instructional Technology, so I have a knowledge base from which to make some critical judgements. This course is superbly designed and presented. Thank you so much for the care you put into developing your course!

"Always crystal clear…like sitting down with a knowledgeable friend"
You always put in all the little bits and pieces, so that I'm never thinking, 'well, did he mean this, or did he mean that?' It's always crystal clear exactly what you meant. It's like sitting down with a knowledgeable friend and getting to ask all the questions that are tormenting you, and getting all the answers. I'm always thinking, 'So THAT'S how it works! THAT'S how to do it!

"I learned more in the last 3 days than in the last 18 months!"
I purchased your 'Lightroom Made Easy' course and started using it straight away. Although I have been using Lightroom for about 18 months I didn't feel i was getting the best out of it. All that has changed now as your course is so easy to follow i think I have learnt more in the last 3 days than I have in the last 18 months. Can, wait to see what next course is, keep up the good work.

"Your tutorials are the best I have found in 12 years of using a camera!"
I will be leading a small group from our church and our curriculum will be your "Lightroom Made Easy". Every member will be required to purchase the video course in order to particpate in this 10-week course. I have decided that your tutorials are the best I have found in my 12 years of using a camera!

"You are a credit to the photography industry."
It was a pleasure to have purchased this course! I can confidently say that it was my money well spent. I am a newbie and have learnt quite a lot from your videos. They are quite practical and informative. I wish you would do more of these. You are a credit to the photography industry.
