Thank you so much for generously passing on all your amazing knowledge and sharing your plugins and LUTs! The class was fantastic and far beyond my expectations! I can’t wait to start putting your methods and tools into use with my clients in San Francisco.

I've done quite a bit of training on various software and workflows throughout my career and I must say this is was one of the best courses I've taken. I really enjoyed it and feel I really got a lot out of it.
