Jerry Courvoisier is an excellent teacher with a clear and easy to follow style combined with an incredibly calm and patient manner.  He is approachable and has a willingness to share his knowledge and experience while providing an opportunity to learn from his own work examples and portfolio.  I came to the workshop to learn from a professional photographer and teacher…I left knowing I had found a mentor.   Nancy Coe, photographer

“The two-day immersion into Adobe Lightroom was eye-opening and long overdue for me. Jerry’s success as a teacher is his ability to break down the complexities of the program and put the power of the software into easy-to-understand terms. The emphasis of hands-on learning – taking Jerry’s lessons and putting them into practical use on your own laptop – is simply the best way to learn the program. I only wish I had attended the Lightroom Workshop sooner.”
