Jim patiently taught me on using my DLSR camera settings and how to best manage the ISO, lighting and focusing. We discussed key concepts and principals, then quickly put them to practice.

We spent the time very productively and were able to accomplish my exact goals for the tutorial. Jim is very patient, was easily able to identify the issues and guide me to a workable solution. I would definitely utilize Jim's tutorial services again.

Jim really helped me work through specific areas in Lightroom. I had been hung up for months on basic importing into the program. He helped me find my mysteriously missing photos in a short amount of time of our session. I feel a lot more confident and comfortable in Lightroom now. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone needing help Lightroom or Photography. I definitely will be using him again for tutoring. The man has the patience of a saint!

He helped me with how to deal with harsh lighting environments and best light-weight methods to illuminate specific areas. We went over the best methods to move photos in and out of Lightroom and Photoshop. I would highly recommend him as a tutor.

Jim had background in Lightroom and straightened out my duplicate files and folders that were created when a customer support person from India messed up everything. He gave me many suggestions on the best way to use and organize Lightroom. I hired him to straighten out the files and catalogs and he did that very well. Very satisfied and would recommend him highly.
