For years I resisted Lightroom. I was convinced Photoshop was all I needed.
But, in 2010….I decided to take the leap…. I’m so glad I did!
Finally I was able to create the look I’d been longing for.”
My workflow…. file/folder system…..editing….. everything…..was completely transformed.
Lightroom is ….. aMazing.
It’s changed my creative life….. and the lives of thousands of students…… who’ve taken the LEAP along with me….
I believe….YOU can learn and LOVE Lightroom too.

Too much upfront info can be overwhelming….I teach on a need to know basis.
Up and running first….. then …. we dive into the deeper bits.
I was very slow getting on the Lightroom bandwagon. Every time I took a look at it, I found it confusing and frustrating. But as a result of Kim’s easy-to-understand instructions and guidance, I’ve grown my Lightroom skills to a point I did not believe possible (and you can too). I seriously did not think I could “do” Lightroom but Kim proved me wrong and now I can’t imagine working without it.” – Barb Brookbank
Lightroom is a fantastic program for editing your photos but it can be a challenge to learn all the ins and outs. Kim has a way of breaking down technical information so that it is easy to understand and you can immediately apply it to your photos. She can walk you through a complete edit, from start to finish, or show you how to apply and tweak a preset so that it works for you. She also shows you all of her tips and tricks, and never holds anything back. It’s like an “aha moment” every time I see her work in Lightroom. She makes it easy, approachable, and fun.” – Kate Bragg
Learning to use Lightroom from Kim has completely transformed my workflow and the way I edit my photographs. Her enthusiasm for Lightroom is contagious and I can honestly say that editing in Lightroom has become one of my favorite aspects of photography. I started her class as a complete Lightroom beginner and was overwhelmed with the thought of learning a new editing program. It’s so easy having her videos to refer to over and over again as you go through the process. She helps you begin wherever you are and explains things in a way that makes so much sense to me — never giving you more information than you need but somehow there’s always plenty to learn regardless of how many times you repeat a lesson. I can’t recommend her classes highly enough! – Poppy Barach
A Little Lightroom Love
Watch me work
Lightroom will take your photos from so-so….to simply STUNNING…..
When it comes to workflow, Lightroom is tops.
Copy or sync your edits to multiple photos at once.
Collections, keywords, move files and folders with ease. slideshows, print layouts, share your photos in multiple formats, both online and in print.
Photoshop actions are cool but Lightroom presets take one-click edits to a whole new level.
Not a day goes by that I don’t say…. YES… amazing….when working in LR.
One Stop Workflow.
Lightroom takes you from import, sorting and organization, processing, and finally to export and sharing your beautiful images with the world.
Ease of organization, transformative edits, superior image correction, non-destructive processing, automation…..all in one beautiful program.
- Lightroom 5 or 6/CC. I will be teaching in Lightroom CC.

A Few More Testimonials
Lightroom, I wouldn’t live without it. It doesn’t matter whether you are a hobby photographer or an aspiring professional, it is an essential tool. I’d even give up my weekly coffee shop latte for Lightroom! Once you get it you are going to want to get up to speed fast. Kim’s classes are amazing and really easy to follow. Before long I felt like a pro. I recommend Kim to everyone!” – Karen Olson
I cannot say enough about Kim’s Lightroom classes. While you can find other Lightroom courses online, most of those instructors move rather rapidly over course content with an assumption that you already have plenty of foundation. Kim’s teaching approach focuses on one step at a time where the lessons are laid out in a linear and logical format.
She guides the learner through the set-up of Lightroom, the various modules within and explains the “why” along the way. She is also very open to questions to ensure that you understand the process.”
The best part about Kim’s Lightroom class is that she gets you into making edits and manipulating the magic of Lightroom right away. I learned so much through this course and it has completely transformed my creative photography. Thank you Kim for the gift of Lightroom!” – Kathy Pardell
I couldn’t get my head around Lightroom for the longest time , and so I gave up . Then I found Kim’s class and she opened up a whole new world for me . I not only learned to use a new program I gained confidence.
