Work 1:1 with Andrew - Consulting Client Testimonial:


I couldn't have done it without you, Andrew!

I’m an amateur photographer and met Andrew at a Lightroom seminar given by my local Photography Store. I had been using Lightroom for cataloguing and developing my photos for about eight years but was unsure of how to move my photos and library to a new computer. He helped me transfer all the files and set up Lightroom to work on both my old laptop and my new computer, and he was able to control my screen remotely just as though we were in the same room.

He also set up multiple automatic backups, including a backup to the cloud and one for safe keeping off site. Since I shoot mainly in raw he also helped me with my Develop workflows in Lightroom and he helped me optimize the quality of my photos for printing. Several months after we accomplished all of the above my six-year-old MacBook Pro’s SSD drive crashed and no data was recoverable from it. I thought how fortunate I was to have met Andrew and to have moved everything to the new iMac just in time. I then really appreciated how important the multiple backups that Andrew put in place were to protecting many years of work.

I would greatly recommend Andrew for all the items I covered and more. He is my go-to guy, and I know I will be working with him in the future.
