"I attended the workshop a couple of weeks ago and have shaved HOURS off of my workflow immediately. Best. Money. Spent. In a long, long time!!!"

Fabiana Loverde de Huffaker

"Took SPORTDAD's "Streamline Your Workflow with Photo Mechanic" course. Easily the best money I have spent in years on education. I can already see how incorporating his processes will speed up my existing workflow. As an added bonus, his digital asset management practices are exactly what I've been looking for. Highly, highly recommended."

Scott Frazee

"Great course.. well worth the money!"

Reggie Hildred, InnerVision Photography

"Jeff has developed a wealth of information for utilizing all the features offered in Photo Mechanic. He shares "tried and true" methods that will speed up your workflow in culling and tagging photographs in record time. Top notch photographer that likes helping others grow."

Debbi Conlon, Debbi Conlon Photography

"Thank you again for the great workshop. I had no trouble with an equestrian shoot this weekend because of all I learned from you. ...Created a .tsv file from Google docs/sheets, ...added a huge amount of metadata using variables, ...ingested a thousand plus photos, ...could easily name the riders and the horses using the code replacements, ...culled in record time, edited in LR, and off they went to the editors!

What used to take me two or three days with many errors and kickbacks - was 30 minutes and accepted. I'm almost embarrassed at how good I was.😁   Thank you!"

Pam Jensen, Pamela Jensen Photography

"Jeff has mastered Photo Mechanic. While Camera Bits has designated him an Ambassador, he is more akin to a wizard when it comes to teaching to use this tool. This workshop was well organized and professionally delivered. Jeff knows his subject. If you want to learn to really use Photo Mechanic, sign up and hold onto your hat. Every minute is filled with actionable information."

Drew Turner

"Great teacher! Need to learn Photo Mechanic Jeff is the man to teach you! And you get to see some of his amazing photos!"

Michelle Bebeau

"Purchased the Photo Mechanic class and was super impressed. Jeff's knowledge was amazing and information and instructions on how to use it to benefit my business practices were over the top. Emails with questions were answered quickly and being able to ask questions during the class was very helpful. Small class size structure kept things more personal and I didn't just feel like a number. GREAT EXPERIENCE!"
