“I always felt that using Lightroom is kind of cheating. I avoided it for years. Call me a purist but I was so wrong. I was leaving so much information on the table and so much extra impact and drama. Thanks to Michael’s masterclass, I’m able to make the most from my images. Amazing course!”

I loved working on his images and practicing alongside the videos to really grasp what he was teaching. Thank you!”
