What students are saying...

Eyes on the Street was an excellent class. Casper is very knowledgeable and the class is organized very well. The information and examples provided were organized into a great booklet, so you don't have to scramble to jot things down on the run. Casper really takes the time to understand what each student hopes to learn or improve on and then checks in throughout the class about your goals, and to offer tips and ideas. I learned so much from this class, it was great!

Just wanted to send a quick note of appreciation! Thank you so much for everything, I am taking a lot away from the course and have a solid understanding of the program – I am excited to start exploring.

I thought that RE Casper was very well prepared to teach Lightroom 1. The course was well-organized and the outline was well thought-out! The pace of the course was reasonable and we received a sold overview or the Lightroom software. I found that RE Casper was very patient with students and gave adequate time for questions and explanations. The course was a good introduction to Lightroom. I know there is much more to learn, and I look forward to Lightroom 2. Thanks.

Just like the genre of Street Photography this class is quick paced and exciting. Quick paced in the sense that I captured over 700 images over three days while walking in excess of 15 miles exploring 6 divergent areas of San Francisco. Exciting in the sense that from the images I captured I learned and was able to practice and receive valuable feedback on the art of focus, composition, and lighting in relation to presenting the "story" of the street. Thank you

Lightroom 1 with Casper was "just what the doctor ordered!". He was organized, energetic, thorough and thoughtful in his presentation……and fun. Lightroom is such a powerful, complicated program and it needs a guide like Casper to walk you through the organization, learn on how to focus on the important points and see how they pertain to setting up your workflow and then how to start to apply its powerful tools. It could have been overwhelming but Casper saw what the value was to beginners and could bring his wealth of experience to play in guiding us through it's most valuable parts. I definitely hope to take further classes with him, especially Lightroom 2 and would recommend this class to anyone who wants to understand the value of Lightroom to their photo organization and editing.

Spent this weekend taking RE Casper's Lightroom 1 class at the Harvey Milk Photo Center. I've used Lightroom for 6 years; Casper clearly explained the tool well enough for me to understand just how limited and inefficient my use of it has been! I recommend this course for any user of Lightroom who either is new to it or is sure they don't understand it well enough!

Casper is a terrific instructor. The workshop is fast paced, efficient, and clearly well-thought out. Casper has obviously thought about how to approach not just the workshop, but teaching itself. His instructions are clear, he repeats instructions and directions when necessary, and answers questions both immediately and during breaks. I went home knowing how to use LightRoom. I thoroughly enjoy Casper's upbeat and friendly delivery and will take other courses by him. He goes out of his way before the class to provide us with handouts that we may need...
