Adobe Lightroom is a very powerful yet easy to use application designed primarily for photographers. I will teach you how to store, manage, and backup your photos; how to edit and post process them in Lightroom and Photoshop; and how to print and frame your images. I will also teach you how to use Lightroom while traveling. I have been using Lightroom from the very beginning and currently manage about 200,000 in my catalog. Lessons are available in person or remotely.

About Nick D.

My name is Nick and I am a freelance photographer located in Tyngsborough, Massachusetts. I am new to the TakeLessons platform but have many years of experience as a photographer and photography teacher.

I specialize in travel, fine art and sports action photography. I am a life-long photographer having worked for a weekly newspaper, a motorcycle racing magazine, as a wedding and event photographer, and as a sports photographer. Over the last 15 years I have photographed local town events, Middle and High School sports, college football, fund-raising events for non-profit organizations, motorcycle racing, bicycle racing, running road races, Rock ‘n Roll bands, and high school senior portraits. I am now focusing most of my time traveling around the world and making and exhibiting my photographs of the local landscapes and people. Many of my images have been published in newspapers, on various websites, and exhibited in many art galleries.

I enjoy teaching students how to "make" photographs, drawing from the skills and techniques that I have learned from my real-world experiences as a photographer. My students learn how to use their camera as an expression of their artistic vision. They will learn all aspects of workflow including research and preparation, camera settings, composition, post-processing, printing, and framing. The goal is for each student to create images that they would be proud to exhibit or display on their wall at home.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced photographer, please contact me for further information, to discuss your goals and objectives for making pictures, or to schedule a session. I offer both in person and remote lessons. Thank you.

Good class. We covered the basics at a very agreeable speed and in enough detail to convey and grasp the concepts. Now I need to shoot, shoot, shoot on my homework assignment.
Very good beginning to what I believe will a growth experience for me.

Nick was awesome. Helped me choose the proper camera settings to optimize conditions and maximize the quality of the image. Educated me on controlling settings for various light conditions and depth of field. Very helpful and well worth the drive. I will definitely call on him again to fine tune what I've learned once I have a chance to practice.

Nick is patient, knowledgeable, and a great photography instructor. I've learned more from him in a couple of lessons than I've learned from a couple of books I've been using to try and learn on my own. Well-worth the time and cost for personal instruction. Highly recommend.

I recently made the switch from Aperture to Lightroom and Nick guided me through the whole process. His knowledge on file organization and Lightroom was incredibly helpful for me. He made the switch for me an easy one. Thanks Nick!
