Adobe Lightroom CC 2019


A huge fan of the importance of the creative process and the photographic object/print/thing you hold in your hand, Daniel spends a great deal of the time in both the analog and digital darkrooms. Working in a variety of mediums, his current focus is combining digital techniques and technologies and applying them to alternative and historical photographic processes such as platinum printing, wet-plate, and mixed media.

Daniel is also the host of the podcast The Perceptive Photographer which focuses on the creative life and challenges that artist and photographers face each and every day. He is Adobe® certified in Adobe® CC® Lightroom and Photoshop, and is an instructor at Photoshop World. In addition, Daniel is a member of the core faculty at the Photographic Center Northwest where he teaches classes on a variety of film, digital and conceptual photographic concepts.



Such a great class! Daniel is so knowledgeable about the whole LR ecosystem and explains complex details clearly. There's so much valuable content packed into this class. I highly recommend for those moving from LR Classic to CC (mobile LR) and for those who are new to LR CC altogether. Highly recommend.


Daniel's introduction to Lightroom CC shattered my preconceptions about what is possible in this app versus Lightroom Classic. I now know thanks to Daniel's class on CreativeLive that you can enjoy 80-90% of the utility of LR Classic in LR CC with the added benefits of cloud storage of original images and edits, iPad-enabled import and edit workflows (yay for Apple Pencil brushing!), and tight integration with Adobe Portfolio and Spark (tools I hadn't even considered using until Dan demo'd their immense power in this class). Thanks, Dan and CreativeLive!
