Summer Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC Classes

LR CC Mixed Logo

Photoshop CC logoA couple of weeks ago I posted that I would be teaching Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC classes for PVNET this summer. The details have been worked out now.

There will be three classes all during July. Each class will meet for one week on Monday through Thursday evening from 6:30-8:30 pm for a total of 8 hours.  The classes will be taught at PVNET’s summer home in the Palos Verdes Peninsula Center Promenade. It is on the second level right beneath the Regal Theater.

We will be using the latest software, but if you have recent versions of either program, that will be fine.  The number of PCs are limited, so sign up early! To the best of my knowledge this is the only adult school or similar educational facility that has Creative Cloud (CC) versions of these programs.

Lightroom CC – Level 1 Beginning July 6th

Photoshop CC – Level 1 Beginning July 13th

Photoshop CC – Level 2  Beginning July 20th

I hope to see you in one of the classes.

PVNET Now Has Adobe Creative Suite



Yes, that is right. PVNET has just acquired the complete Creative Suite package. Check out their current class offerings. In fact, there is a new InDesign class starting this Tuesday. As many of you know I have taught several classes at PVNET over the years. The Photoshop and Lightroom classes I have taught in the past, required students to bring in their laptops with the software installed.

Now, they have both Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5 on their desktop computers. This will open up these classes to those of you who have the programs on your desktops. Within the next few weeks, I will be posting when I will be teaching classes in these programs at PVNET. Remember, Photoshop is now only a subscription program, and you can get it and Lightroom 5 for only $10 a month. That is a fraction of what it cost you to buy these two programs previously.

Stay tuned for more details.

Lightroom 5 Class Coming to PVNET




 If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that I teach classes for PVNET, a non-profit organization in Palos Verdes. I’ve been teaching classes there for about three years or so. Beginning in March, and going through May, I will be teaching a series of six different classes.

One of them will be Lightroom 5. I’ve been wanting to teach a beginning class in Lightroom for some time, so I am really excited about finally getting a chance to do this. Many of you have asked if I was going to teach a Lightroom class sometime. In fact, I excited about the entire series of classes.

We are still finalizing the details, but here is what we know so far. To begin with, all of the classes will be either Friday afternoon or Friday night. They will each be four weeks and meet for two hours per session. One of the unique features of the classes is that there will be an open one-hour lab between the afternoon and evening class where students of either class can drop in for some extra help or to work on individual projects using the skills they learned in their particular class.  Afternoon classes will start at 3:00 pm and the evening classes will start at 6:30 pm, with the joint lab session running from 5:00-6:00 pm.

Also, for most of the classes you will be using your Windows or Mac laptop and working with your own pictures.

Here are the classes.


3:00-5:00 pm              iPad/iPhone Photography

6:30-8:30 pm              Lightroom Level 1

Look for more information, including how to register for these classes in the coming weeks. Shortly, information on how to register for these classes will be posted on the PVNET website.

For those of you who have taken classes at PVNET, you know that it is a great facility. Space is limited, however, so you will need to sign up as soon as registration opens to secure your spot.
