What My Customers Say

I have many, many books on Lightroom — too many to read them all. However, I have found that Laura’s videos are far easier to comprehend and the quality of the videos is unequaled. She is definitely a cut above.– Richard Dunn

What a great discovery Laura has been, with no nonsense tutorials and very clear to understand step-by-step instructions. I really thought I knew Lightroom but was really just skimming the surface. Other instructors I have tried usually just say “do this”, Laura firmly sits in the “why you should” bracket. Please support this top class instructor and you will not be sorry. In fact like myself you will be very delighted that you did.– Graeme Broadhurst (United Kingdom, camera club member)

Lightroom Training Video Review - Graeme

Laura’s training is always clear and to the point. She seems to anticipate my questions before they even form in my mind. I highly recommend Laura’s training to beginners as well as advanced users. She knows her stuff!

Lightroom Training Review - LM Greene

I tried using Lightroom for a number of years and always gave up right away - there are so many subtle issues with the interface, and it's not always clear what's going on. I purchased your Lightroom Fundamentals and Beyond video series and I am so glad that I did. Your clear, detailed explanations are so helpful and have given me the understanding I was missing by trying to figure it out on my own. Thank you so much!

Laura Shoe’s Lightroom course has allowed me to finally understand what Lightroom is and what I can do with it. I have paid hundreds of dollars for Lightroom lessons in person and on the internet, but I screwed up constantly. But by following all the easy steps in Laura Shoe’s course I see myself now as a Lightroom pro! She is clear, calm, easy to understand, exact, precise and friendly. What more do you want?! Hurry, she is the best Lightroom coach you’ll ever need!

Lightroom Tutorial Review Marijke Rawie

As a serious non-professional travel photographer I had been using Photoshop for 15 years when Lightroom came along. After attending classes in Lightroom where I came away confused, I bought Laura’s video course on LR. Her clear instruction taught me LR and today I use it for all my photography, only occasionally going to Photoshop. I can’t thank Laura enough and would recommend her videos highly.

– Sandra Kunz (Bend, OR)

Lightroom Training Recommendation Sandra Kunz

I just wanted you to know how much I have enjoyed your Lightroom video series. The tutorials are clear and concise, but cover all relevant aspects of the Lightroom features. In fact, I make it a habit to sit down once every couple of weeks and give myself a short “refresher” on some aspect (usually of the Develop module). There is so much functionality that I find I’m always rediscovering something about the program when I revisit a video. Thanks so much.

I purchased your Lightroom tutorial series and have found it to be superb! I gained a great deal of expertise and felt more at ease in editing my images after participating in this series. Thank you for aiding me in becoming a better photographer.

Lightroom training testimonial - Dick Weaver

Laura is the consummate professional, at the top of the game in terms of delivering the best available Lightroom training, tutorials and tips for both the advanced and beginner. Her training course are extremely well crafted. Pace and pitch of delivery is a pleasure to experience.– Matt O’Brien

Lightroom Tutorial Recommendation Matt O'Brien

Learning how to get the most from Lightroom is so much easier with Laura’s video workshops. Each topic is covered by a short stand alone video which can be watched on its own or as part of the series. I have both The Fundamentals & Beyond and Producing Great Output (for Lightroom 5) on my iPad. Ahead of working on some photos I watch one or more video chapters to refresh my memory. It’s great when you are on a train, etc. My knowledge and use of Lightroom is so much better now thanks to Laura’s clearly explained tutorials.

– Sandy (Cambridge, UK)

Lightroom Training Review Sandy

Your straightforward and clear videos finally opened my eyes to the value of Lightroom after I had made several previous failed attempts. Largely thanks to your instruction, I now use it for almost 90% of my photo work, and I have recommended your videos to many other people.

Lightroom Tutorial Review

Without Laura Shoe, I would have given up on photography completely. I came to it late – in my 60s – and after frustrating experiences with Photoshop, I switched to Lightroom. I found that the teaching resources available didn’t work very well for me. I wish I could remember how I discovered Laura’s work, but I am enormously glad that I did. Her videos have helped me so much – the content and presentation are beyond reproach. Thanks to her inspiration, photography is now an important part of my life. I can create and print images that give me great satisfaction and just occasionally pride. Laura – thank you so much!John Woodman (Castletown, Isle of Man)
