About David

Since 1978, my experience as a professional photographer includes working with 35mm, 2 1/4, 4x5 film and digital format cameras. I specialize in fashion, beauty, portrait, model portfolio, landscape, advertising and editorial photography. I also have vast experience in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.

Students are offered a photography curriculum which includes a series of subjects, such as, “Using Your Camera as a Tool; The Art of Composition; Exposure 101; Jpeg vs. Raw; The Picturesque Landscape; Lighting for Portraits; Photoshop Basics; Photo Retouching & Restoration; Processing Images in Lightroom.” Upon request, a student may customize a course designed for their immediate needs.

My tutoring technique provides the student with in-depth knowledge and understanding of the course. Each course includes a lecture, assignment(s), and critique. The lecture is the heart of the course which teaches the objective, art, technique, and execution for the topic studied. An assignment will be given to show what the student has learned in the course. The student will email their final assignment to me for critiquing. Finally, I will email the student my feedback about their assignment. Should the student’s work be unsatisfactory, a new assignment will be given. The main objective is for the student to understand what they have learned in my course. I’m here to help you!

Courses are available in my Los Angeles studio. However, I am happy to travel to another location if that is more convenient for the student. Additional charges may apply for traveling to another location.

Cancellations must be made at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled class appointment time. Make up classes are available.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

My Photoshop experience includes retouching images and scanning old photographs to repair them using the software. Photoshop has been part of my photography business since 1995, beginning with version 2.5. I currently use Photoshop CS6.

I will teach the student basic Photoshop and later show how to use advanced retouching techniques. The student will learn to use Photoshop properly and efficiently with knowledge and art discipline.

Photoshop is an important tool to have in today's digital darkroom.
