Workshop participants are required to bring a laptop computer with Lightroom 6 software installed to participate in the hands-on exercises during the workshop. If you do not have Lightroom 6 on your computer, please install the trial version prior to the workshop.


Workshop leader Chet Burgess began working with digital technology to create fine art photographic prints more than seven years ago. He has taught the Develop module for three years, and continually updates his training in Lightroom. His images have been shown nationally and his work can be viewed on his website.
