This Adobe Lightroom Photo Organization course was inspired by all our CONFIDENCE attendees. The request for “Can I just pay Brian to help me organize all my photos?” got him thinking on how to best do it!  The answer…VOILA!

Are you overwhelmed with mountains of photos needing to be organized?  Do you need to find photos you took last year?  Do you only have one copy of your photos and worry that you could lose them all if you don’t come up with a solution? Are you wasting creative energy worrying about or figuring out the best way to archive your photographs? Do you spend HOURS looking for a single photo only to come up empty handed?  Are there other things you could be doing with your photos to diversify your photography income?

In this Adobe Lightroom Photo Organization course, learn the right way to organize, archive, and backup your photos with Brian Tausend (Me Ra’s secret weapon!) in this AWE-mazing 4 weeks filled with lots of one-one sessions. Yes, IT IS POSSIBLE!  Just read the reviews from past attendees!  Clean up your current photo mess, get peace of mind, save time in the future when looking for past photos, add new images to your system the right way the first time, learn about options for licensing your photos and more…

This course is limited to 6 spots. 

A number of you have emailed with HUGE disclaimers that your current “photo mess” may be to messy for Brian.  LOL!  He’s a superhero ladies when it comes to photo organization, and that’s why he’s only taking 6 students at once.  Picture him on the top of your photo mountain mess with a cape and slogan in the sky that says “No Photo Mess is to Messy for Brian!”  🙂  Not only will you get your photos organized, but if you’ve had an time with Brian you know it’s also going to be fun!

Let’s get your photos organized the New Year!  The time has come for you to experience the freedom of it in Brian’s Adobe Lightroom Photo Organization course!

    I emailed Merakoh prior to signing up for Brian’s class to let her know that I was VERY computer challenged and that I had tried other classes and was unsuccessful in organizing my images. I let her know that I was definitely not interested in investing more money and still not understanding how to organize my photos. I heard back from her and she reassured me that Brian would be able to help me. I signed up! I am organized!!! I can’t believe it but all my images are in folders that are named and I believe I can keep it up. Because of my very limited computer skills Brian said I was a challenge! He stayed with me though and he was cheerful and kind. He’s very competent and I’m completely serious when I say that if he could help me get organized he can YOU too!

    I was introduced to Me Ra and Brian’s easy-going, down-to-earth style when I had the pleasure of attending one of their first confidence workshops back in 2008! Lightroom was a completely new concept to me back then and it didn’t take long to get myself bogged down in images that were scattered all over the place both in Lightroom and on my computer. In an effort to save myself from the Lightroom monster I had created, I attended a workshop with a well respected Lightroom “guru” in an attempt to get things organized once and for all. The process and format were comprehensive and complete, but I found them to be too time consuming and I simply wasn’t able to keep up with it all. Enter Brian and his Lightroom photo organization course. Initially, I was worried I wouldn’t be Lightroom savvy enough to fully understand and embrace Brian’s methods, but I was wrong. Brian was able to explain how Lightroom works in a practical way. He was also able to get my computer filing system working for me which was another huge area of disorganization. Brian utilizes a Windows based OS, but was easily able to help me navigate my Mac without issue. His style is still as easy-going and as down-to-earth as it was back in 2008 which made the class fun and light, while still accomplishing what he set out to do. Scheduling in this busy day and age can be difficult, to say the least, but Brian was very flexible when it came to scheduling one-on-one consults, or rescheduling upon request, when a conflict popped up. For those considering this class, I would highly encourage you to enroll. This class is worth the investment.

    This class rocks! I am usually an organized type A kind of person but my LR catalog did not reflect my personality. It was a mess, because I didn’t know what I was doing or my thought of organizing wasn’t making sense when it came to LR.

    With Brian’s help, it is now perfect! It makes sense, I can find my pictures, everything is all in one place, and the best part is I know how, why, and what to do. Plus Brian, was very patient and super knowledgeable of LR. I appreciated that there were times he would guide me to solve my own problems and then there were times he knew when to jump on to my computer to fix major problems. He is awesome!

    I am a full time working mom of three, so the way this class was set-up was very convenient for my crazy schedule. If you need help with organizing your photos in LR, this class is perfect and for you!

    Thanks to Brian all my photos are organized. My favorite part was the one on one where we worked specifically on my photos. I was amazed at how we could share commuter screens and Brian could step by step show me how to work my very own lightroom setup. The help doesn’t stop when the course is over, the closed Facebook group is a great place to continue to ask questions.
    I learned a lot about lightroom and backing up photos for safe keeping.
    Thanks Brian!

    I consider myself to be a very organized person, sometimes overly so. I have been using Lightroom for 3+ years and had my own organization system that worked well for me. I have recently decided that I want to involve myself more in photography again…along came Brian’s Lightroom to the Rescue. I knew that my system of organization was not complete so I wanted to see what Brian had to offer. It all began very well as he laid out the basics, much of which I was already familiar. Brian is very informative and knowledgeable and I have a tremendous amount of respect for his expertise. I admit to some skepticism during our first one-on-one as I watched him moving my files around on my computer. I tried not to panic, attempted to keep my OCD under wraps! By the end of the first one-on-one, I could see the value in his system…photos are much easier to locate now! There is now a real concentrated effort on my part to re-learn a new method of importing my raw files from the beginning as that is my biggest challenge…letting go of an established habit in exchange for a more effective one. But ABSOLUTELY I highly recommend Brian’s course to help you organize your filing system. Thank you, Brian!

    Before I took this course, I used Lightroom to edit and export photos only (for years … YEARS … sigh). What’s extra embarrassing is that I own multiple Lightroom self-help books and have watched online courses, but it did little for me in the areas that I really needed. I had no idea how to properly import/export or use Lightroom to organize and file.
    Then, my sister passed away rather suddenly, and I inherited (gratefully) her digital life. Now I had not only years of my own photos, but also years of hers – to say that I was a little digitally overwhelmed is an understatement. I couldn’t manage much longer not being able to ask questions to the book or the screen. This is where this class fills a void. You have set meeting times to keep you accountable, and the benefit is in the 1:1 sessions where you can share your screen with Brian and talk to him 1:1 as he walks you through what you need. It’s highly individualized after the first group meeting.
    In the end, I have an organized and HIGHLY FUNCTIONAL photo filing system. As a happy by product, since Lightroom organizes by day and time shot, I can see what my sister was shooting at the exact moment of some of my photographs even though we lived in two different towns. It added an interesting perspective to my memory of her and, for me, was the cherry on top of the experience!

    This course is a life-saver!! I had photos ALL OVER the place, (and lots of them!) and Brian came to the rescue!! His one on one sessions where amazing and I kept telling him there was no way I could have done it by myself. He worked seamlessly with getting my pictures from iPhoto into Lightroom as well as from multiple external hard drives, my iPhone, and various other places. The wonderful thing is that he would “take over” my computer remotely, and move things where it needed to be so I could see what he was doing, then he would walk me through it step by step so I felt confident doing it on my own. His warm, reassuring, (and I needed reassuring as we were moving photos around, because I always fear I am going to delete something) and easy-going personality is a delight to work with. He was very flexible and was willing to put in extra time to help me get my photos organized. He actually spent extra sessions with me because I had such a mess on my hands. I was nervous that I wasn’t going to finish before my time “ran out” with him, and he told me, “we aren’t done until we are done….You will know when we are done.” That is complete service! I kept on telling my husband that I was so glad I took this course because I finally got all my photos organized and now I feel like I can actually do something with them….instead of them sitting in the abyss of my hard drives and computer. One of the most impressive things about Brian is his knowledge and understanding of the Lightroom program. I had some complicated questions that involved deeper knowledge, and Brain never had trouble helping me troubleshoot my issues. He uses a PC, and I use a Mac, but you would never know it. He cruised around my Mac like it is what he uses at home. This course is worth the investment cost, because it is priceless to have peace of mind that your photos are organized and safe. Before this class, I felt like pulling my hair out over my photo mess, and now I love scrolling through all my organized photos. 🙂 I would absolutely take this class again, and it was worth every penny. (in fact, I am encouraging my father to do it with his photos!) Seriously, Brian really did come to the rescue! Thank you Brian!!! If you feel overwhelmed by your photo “mess”, I would highly highly recommend this course!!!!!! Three cheers for organized photos!! 🙂

    Who buys Lightroom but leaves the disc in its original, sealed package for well over a year? Who stored all her photos on SD cards, just to buy more when the others became full?
    Who still can’t believe her photos are organized almost a year after taking Brian’s Adobe Lightroom Photo Organization to the Rescue online course?!?

    Yes, I am raising my hand to all of the questions above. If you are reading this, I am sure you can relate on some level. That means this course is for YOU too!

    While taking the course, I thought about why it had taken me so long to open that Lightroom box. I was intimidated by the program and the task of dealing with ALL of my photos seemed daunting. With Brian’s course, you learn an overview of Lightroom and his system for organization. Then, he meets with you one-on-one until EACH and EVERY one of your photos is organized – no matter if it’s just a hundred, in the thousands, or even a million. How awesome is that!

    And seriously, before the course, I really did have my photos stored only on SD cards. But this “Queen of SD Cards,” has been dethroned. Brian taught me how to safely store and backup all of my images. I am so thankful to know my photos are SAFE now. I find that priceless.

    If you are new to Lightroom or have your own photo mess, I HIGHLY recommend this course.

    Organizing over 50,000 photos taken over roughly a decade seemed like an impossible task until Brian came to our rescue. We had used Lightroom, but were confused when it came to catalogs. Do we create a new catalog with every upload, where should we store our catalogs, should we be only shooting in raw……these were just a few of our many questions. Luckily, our problems were just the kind of challenges Brian loves, and we were organized in no time, and he took the time to teach us how to lead a happy organized photography life! Brian’s class not only includes small group lessons, but the all important one-on-one sessions that target your specific needs on your specific equipment. If you only take one photo class this next year, it needs to be Adobe Lightroom Photo Organization to the Rescue by Brian Tausend!

    I am a 65 year old grandmother that hates technology. I did things my way. I got overwhelmed with photos, dates, events and bam…I quit taking photos. I couldn’t find them so why do I bother. I was searching google for a quick solution; there are tons of ways to organize but somehow I connected with Brian. I signed up (after a glass of wine) because I didn’t know if I could even log in to the class…and honestly it has been life changing. I can find a photo of my grandchild’s 1st soccer practice; or a vacation we took in Utah. It is none less than miraculous. Plus, it was fun. Brian has figured out the simplest, easiest ways to use Lightroom and it totally works. If you are even thinking of a way to get organized…this is for you.

    If you have thousands of photos stored in multiple devices/locations and are intimidated by the prospect of trying to get them centralized and organized, then this is the course for you! I kept putting off this daunting task because I was overwhelmed, had never used Lightroom, didn’t know where to begin and didn’t know how I was going to do it on my own. Thank goodness for Brian and his Lightroom to the Rescue Course. When I heard about this offering, I knew that it was worth the investment to get my photos in order and give me peace of mind. But here’s the thing – you get so much more than that. You get an easy to understand, repeatable process that will serve you throughout your photography lifetime. Brian meets with you one-on-one via video meeting to understand the landscape (mess) of images and locations, introduce you to his system and help tailor it for your needs. He provides an overview of Lightroom so that you understand the features and terminology of the application, as well as how to use it. Through a remote computer sharing capabilities, Brian is able to access files directly on your computer and give you step-by-step directions on how your photo organization journey will take place. He is very patient and a great teacher who ensures that you understand the process, have the confidence to manage it in the future without him, and that no photos are left behind. Brian was able to de-mystify Lightroom for me – thank you, Brian! I love that my photos are all in the same place AND organized in a manner that helps me easily manage and locate my photos with no stress or anxiety. I highly recommend this course to anyone who needs help organizing their photos and understanding Lightroom!
