- An eagerness to learn + desire to take the plunge and invest in your editing skills!
- Any understanding of how Lightroom or Photoshop works - I'll teach you all the basics!
- To be an experienced photographer - or even a professional photographer at all! This course is even for people who just have a fancy camera, love taking photos, and want to learn how to edit their own memories!
- To own any presets. Although I do edit using presets throughout the course (and they are included!), all the techniques + principles still apply no matter what you're editing with. I also have a section all about creating your own presets from scratch!
If you're a brand new photographer, this self paced course will arm you with the tools you need to feel confident putting your work out there, as well as be a place you can return to as you want to learn more. If you're a little more experienced but still looking to take your editing game up a notch (or several!) then this course is for you, too - I'll be your mentor as your photography stretches and grows.

"Taking this course, I had no idea what to expect! I have very limited knowledge of photography skills but it's a passion and hobby of mine and so I wanted to learn more. I was completely blown away at the extensive knowledge this course gave me! This course is detailed on EVERYTHING you need to know but it's also so user-friendly and easy to follow! I would encourage anyone with an interest in photography to get this. You will not regret it!"
"All I can say is... AMAZING! I've been working as a professional photographer for 2 years now and like Heather says, we are ALWAYS students! Before, I only used Lightroom for editing because Photoshop was always so intimidating to me, but after going through a few of the chapters in Heather's course, I can confidently use Photoshop (a program that I have no prior experience in), AND I am using tools in Lightroom I never even knew existed! This course is SO WORTH the price. The amount of information and resources you receive is unbelievable, especially when you think of how much you got it for. This course is already changing the way I think about my work. I highly recommend it for new photographers, those who are interested in becoming a photographer, and seasoned photographers too! Mahalo, Heather! I can't wait to keep learning."
