Feedback from some recent talks

Perth

His Perth workshop, which was well attended by members from four camera clubs, showed off Mark’s skills as a natural and responsive instructor. Everyone present felt fortunate to be learning from one of the best practitioners in the photo editing business. His relaxed and flexible style ensured all his audience left with expanded knowledge and an appetite for more. We all felt inspired to get more out of the Adobe products and implement the advice we’d gained.

Newsflash June 2016 – WA Camera Club

.. and some individual comments from the participants

      • Excellent workshop . . .never known four hours to go so quickly! Mark was very knowledgeable on his product and gave us so many tips for Lightroom. Susan Moss
      • I thought that Mark’s presentation was good – he has a very amiable and relaxed style – Ann Jones
      • I thought it was great. I learned a lot and he went through it all very clearly and neatly – Kim McAvoy
      • It was a really great workshop, with great information and really enjoyable – Peter Chalmers
      • It was a great presentation. Mark is a good speaker, making his points clearly – Grace Munday

Queensland – Photographic State Convention

Mark Galer made an excellent presentation to more than 100 delegates on the benefits and advantages of the Creative Cloud suite of software. This presentation was informative and encouraging to photographers, and detailed many of the new features available beyond CS6.  As a result, many of the participants took immediate steps to download the program, so that they could attend the other two sessions that Mark presented, one on Lightroom Libraries, and the other on Smart Workflows.  Both of these sessions were filled to capacity and beyond. The Smart Workflows workshop was very over subscribed, and a larger venue had to be found to contain all of the participants who wished to attend. Very positive feedback was provided by delegates about the sessions that Mark provided.

Tasmania

What a great Lightroom/Photoshop presentation by Adobe’s  Australian/New Zealand Ambassador, Mark Galer, on Sunday 8th May. Our Club was so privileged to have somebody of Mark’s calibre to spend the day with us and his laid-back and friendly style clarified many issues that most of us have or had at some time. Mark explained how and why Adobe moved to the Cloud system and also the many benefits there are that most users would not be aware of. Recent discussions on our Facebook pages complaining about Adobe and what the alternatives are were blown into insignificance, once he explained the combining power of Lightroom and Photoshop. It was not a hard sell for Adobe. Just a simple overview and teaching of the system.
