Digital Asset Management & Adobe Lightroom v2 course

I received this information in an e-mail and knowing there are some members new to Lightroom who may be struggling, thought I’d pass it along.

Digital Asset Management & Adobe Lightroom v2 CPT
Presented by
Riaan van den Berg in association with Outdoorphoto

I have been overwhelmed with people wanting me to do the course in the Western Cape and depending on further interest I will schedule 1 or more workshops in Stellenbosch. I am looking for the best date in September/October to hold the workshops, if you are interested in possibly attending let me know (no obligation) what date would suite you best, (19 Sept / 26 Sept / 17 Oct / 24 Oct) I will use this information and feedback I receive from photographers in Cape Town to compile the best date/s and publish the course on the Outdoorphoto website

If you are currently using Lightroom or want to use Lightroom and want to maximize your investment this course is for you

  1. Fairly superb entry, really informative information. Never ever thought I’d find the tips I want right here. I’ve been hunting throughout the net for some time now and had been starting to get irritated. Fortunately, I came across your site and acquired precisely what I was struggling to find.
