Adobe Lightroom


SKU: N/A Category:


Now booking for Friday, 3rd November 2017.

Managing and post processing images can seem complicated, and many seem to struggle with this final stage of achieving great photographs. But no need to worry! Our Adobe Lightroom Workshop will clear things up and help give your images a real boost!

Adobe Lightroom is fast becoming the industry standard editing platform for photographers, and for good reason. This Lightroom course is designed to start from the very basics of how to use the software, right up to some of the more advanced tools which will help you realise the potential in your images.

We will look at how to manage your images so they are kept tidy and are always easy to find. We will look at how to establish a focused workflow, which is important for both speed and consistency when editing your images.

We invite participants to bring along up to 10 of their own images which they feel would benefit from some Lightroom attention, but don’t worry if you don’t have any, as you can use our library files. If you have your own laptop computer which you use for editing (with Lightroom installed) then feel free to bring this if you would prefer to work on your own familiar system.

Suitable for all levels of photographer, except for complete beginner.

Please note: We limit this course to 4 places such that the tutor can spend time with each student.

♥♥♥♥♥ J.C. Very happy with both courses will come again.

♥♥♥♥♥ I.M. Very informative. Personal tuition when required.
Will book up another course when time allows.

♥♥♥♥♥ A.F. Great venue, great tutor, superb hospitality & a great course – I got an awful lot out of it. One area to consider for ‘beginner photographers’ maybe – ask them to bring RAW files as opposed to Jpeg. I think this would be most beneficial.  Look forward to another course with yourselves later this year.

The Tutor

Marcus has been a professional travel photographer for over 10 years, having travelled to over 50 countries on various assignments. After living in places such as Venice, Beijing, and San Francisco, he’s now returned to the UK, and currently lives on the Isle of Skye.

Marcus’s professional career was kick started when he was awarded the title of Photographer of the Year by Practical Photography magazine. Having a love affair with travel, Marcus packed a bag and journeyed around the world for five years, capturing high class images of unique landscapes and the people who inhabit them.

During this time, Marcus was a regular contributor for many photographic publications, and still continues to write features for the UK’s most popular magazines. On top of this he has shot assignments for the likes of Microsoft, Panasonic, Visit Britain, and Cafe Nero.

Marcus is a true believer that photography doesn’t have to be complicated. “In today’s digital world where even the most basic of cameras have a 200 page instruction manual, it’s easy to see how the picture taking process can be confusing to the newcomer. I like to go back to basics and encourage people to show their camera who is boss!”
Marcus is a tutor for the School of Photographic Imaging, run by IPC Media (Amateur Photographer, What Digital Camera). He also runs one-to-one workshops on the Isle of Skye and photographic holidays worldwide – including to China and the USA.

For many years Marcus shot all his work exclusively on medium format film, and still uses his “dinosaurs” to this day. He also shoots with his Canon 1D III and 5Ds

● Refreshments (coffee, tea etc)
