About David

After having worked in and managed camera stores, photo labs, darkrooms, and studios over the last 30 years, I opened Sterling Images. At first Sterling Images was a digital photo lab. But, over the years it grew and evolved into Southern Oregon's premier Digital Imaging, Photoshop and Digital Camera training business. The name was eventually changed to David Vanderlip Training.

With my love of teaching, along with my insights into the ways people think, understand and learn new technologies, I have developed a unique and highly effective method of teaching. I offer private training, classes, lectures, seminars and online training in the areas of Digital Cameras, Digital Imaging, Photography, Photoshop, and Lightroom (and a many more things). I teach 8-12 classes a term at Southern Oregon University's Community Education, SOU Olli and through my own business.  I've written two books on Adobe Photoshop Elements and one on using your digital camera.  I plan to write many more books and create training videos to accompany the books in the future.
