For those photographers wanting to make the most of the experience and the beautiful photographs they captured, join Clifford Pickett for a one of a kind weekend workflow experience. Spend Friday afternoon and all day Saturday learning how to automate your entire workflow, from import, to sorting and ranking to keywording to post-processing and then sharing your images the most efficient and effective way possible using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
This will be a hands on, everything you need to know, deep dive into the single most important tool ever created for photographers outside the camera… Adobe’s Lightroom and Creative Cloud Suite. Laptops are required for this one as this will be a fully interactive experience.

If you are serious about learning Lightroom, a first time user or an experienced veteran looking to harness the power of the new and improved Lightroom, this is the Workshop for you.
We start with an image critique for all attendees. We ask all attendees to submit 10-15 images each.
