RAVE REVIEW! This testimonial (from my Lightroom course) sums up all the courses I provide...

"The content of the course is perfectly structured and expertly delivered. The flow of the content builds knowledge and skills in a logical fashion. Chris has a really good presentation style. Of key importance, when students ask questions, Chris answers them in a thorough and comprehensive manner. Highly recommended. Regards." ~ Mick

The course starts of with the basic foundations and proceeds to more advanced tools. A course worksheet is included. Use to follow along with and practice what you learn. Stuck? No problem, I'm available for continued discussions relating to the course material. Throughout the course, I encourage students to practice what they learn and post their work in the discussion area for any type of feedback (or additional questions).

At some point, the Udemy system will ask you for a review about this course. Please understand that it is Udemy asking and not me (Chris Parker, your instructor). I do not agree with asking for a review so early (it's out of my control) in the course and ask that if you're not ready to give a review, please do so only when you're ready. I appreciate all feedback and use it to improve my courses.

I Hope your enjoying the course thus far. Please contact me anytime for additional questions/support. I'm here to help you achieve your learning goals and looking forward to your success.

Yes, I really do care AND answer ALL questions. :)

Learn the techniques I use to maximize my productivity. In fact, you could save 1 hour of work for every 8 hours worked. What would you do with an extra hour per day? Work and earn more? Spend more time with family and friends? Some "me" time? It's entirely up to you. However, you must master this lesson. In fact, if you skip this lesson you may be lost throughout the rest of the course and it will take you longer to finish (the course). So, buckle up, watch and re-watch and take notes. For the remainder of the course, I will continually refer to the "secret technique" I use as a successful graphic designer.

Warning, Do Not Skip! HINT; this lesson alone is worth the price of the course.

As a photographer and graphic designer for 25 years I've learned one important thing; A productive workflow will allow you to earn more.

The goal of my courses is to help you master what you need to know in 1 day or less. Life is too short to spend on things you don't need to know. No Fluff. Learn what you need and apply. Spend less time in front of your computer and doing more of what you love.
