I am a multi-award winning photographer and digital artist, with more than 25 years of commercial photography experience and more than 20 years of digital imaging experience. I am also an Adobe Certified Photoshop Expert and Instructor with more than 6 years of photography and Photoshop training experience.
I am also a CompTIA Certified Technical Trainer.
I have taught photography and Photoshop at college level, workshops, private and corporate training, and have developed on-line training for several companies.
After a long and successful career as a commercial photographer and digital artist, I find great personal satisfaction in giving back what I have learned to others, assisting them in finding success.
The key to my teaching is in making things simple to understand, and making sure that a student not only understands how something works, but why.
With each new lesson, I make sure that the student has absorbed the material from the previous lesson, and then move forward with new material. I first teach features, concepts, and techniques, then apply them with real world examples, and then have the students apply them.
My mantra for success in life and business: "It does not matter, at the end of the day, whether it be an inch or a mile. What matters is that you Keep Moving Forward!"
My teaching mantra is very simple: "If you do not Use it, you will Lose it!" That means practice and application. Photoshop and photography are not hard to learn. The key is in learning how to apply the features and techniques, and in developing your own methods of creativity.
I have loved photography and digital imaging from the very beginning, and I really love helping others develop their creative skills and vision.
