I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife and our cat.

In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University - one of the top 10 film schools in the country. While there, I was fortunate to make documentaries in Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, and India. After graduating, I worked at Participant Media shooting and editing short-form documentaries for their website TakePart. I followed that stint with a contract at Stanbridge College where I discovered online learning. I helped pioneer their online school there. Most recently, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team. Throughout this time I built my Video School Online brand to teach others the skills that I have. In May of 2015, I left the 9-5 world to make my own path. Since then, I've made more money, worked fewer hours, and only have done the things I love each day.

I want to show you how to be a better creator, make money from your creations, and live the life you dreamed of.

    Excellent !!

    I loved this course, I've used lightroom for a little while now, but have always used presets to edit my photos. After viewing this course I can now edit my photos to exactly the way I like them. Phil is a great instructor, easy to follow, no complicated jargon, and always ready to help. I highly recommend this course to new users of Lightroom

    • Walter Snell

    Great stuff for Newbies!!!

    I knew NOTHING about lightroom before I started this Tutorial. Now I feel like I know EVERYTHING!!!! I will certainly be taking ore of Phil's classes!!!

    Подойдёт новичкам

    В этом курсе рассматриваются все базовые возможности Lightroom. Могу сказать, что для тех, кто видит эту программу впервые, курс будет полезен. Для тех, кто сам разбирался в функционале хотя бы немного, курс покажется скучным. Для себя я вынес буквально пару моментов. Например то, что касается перспективы и градиентов. В целом, 3/5. Советую смотреть в ускоренном воспроизведении, английский очень простой, но так рассказчик будет казаться живее.

    • Jim Phillips

    Slow start, strong finish

    I enjoyed his approach. It's light and easy to follow. I would take other courses he offers if they were in my wheelhouse. It started a little slowly, but I persevered and it picked up nicely.

    • Chris Birks

    Very good course

    This is a very good course best taken afetr a little time using Lightroom as it makes it much better to understand the lessons. My only reservation is that the photos used to demonstrate the techniques could have been selected beforehand as the course gives the impression of choosing as the tutor is going along. This gives the idea that it is not as professional as it really is. My only other niggle is that a couple of times background noise was apparent. Not enough to spoil course but a bit distracting.
