What students are saying about Rick:
“I just finished The Real Photoshop Course with you and I just wanted to let you know that this is a great course. I’m a newbie to Photoshop and like others it can be some what intimidating. (it was for me LOL) You really made it easy to understand and you help too ease the fear of using certain functions in Photoshop. Absolutely love this course.!!!
I would highly recommend this course to all who either struggle or feel intimated by Photoshop. Your enthusiasm and love to teach others makes learning easy. Looking forward to seeing more of you as part of the BPSOP family.” – John O’Brien
“Okay, now I just want to say “Thank You!” You are awesome. I am learning so much. Thank you for the clarity you have provided. I knew right what you were talking about when you discussed color space and printing mediums. You cleaned things up so nice. You are, dare I say it?, a genius! (Now don’t go photoshopping your head real big!)Thank you again for sharing your vast knowledge with us and providing it in an understandable fun way.
Excited to be learning so much.” – Dave
“Just finished the Real Photoshop Course and Ricks teaching style is superb. I only used photoshop to remove some wires in a shot but know I have learned so much in four weeks. I just saw the announcement for the Bridge course, on my list for my next course. Rick is a wonderful asset to BPSOP. Great job!” – Al Fox
