I have been a professional photographer for over 30 years. Currently, I am one of the founding members of the Professional Photographers Institute of New England which is a school held once a year for a week to keep professional photographers up to date with their skills and techniques. For the past 18 years I have been teaching both a basic and an intermediate photography class at the New Fairfield Continuing Education, which recently dropped the class due to lack of enrollment. The new Meetup Group Waterbury Photography Enthuisiasts was started by myself and I have been recognized for the work I do with several organizations. Hands on is the best method to learning anything including photography and PhotoShop.

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

I have the experience of working with Photoshop on a Professional Photographer level doing retouching, creating montages, adjusting images, enhancing images

Photography

I have been a professional photographer for over 30 years and received the Certified Professional Photographer designation from the Professional Photographers of America 12 years ago. You must recertify every 5 years and I have recertified twice already. I have also earned the Craftsman of Photography degree from the Professional Photographers of America stating that I have the knowledge to teach my craft.

Photography is my passion and I try to keep up on the current techniques and styles but remeber where the roots of photography are in the creative process.

Great tutor — Number one, he listens. I had specific things I wanted to get done, and he heard them. We covered them to my satisfaction. Number 2. My computer had some shortcomings but he was flexible and computer capable enough to work around those issues. The man is an expert in the field, I will take a few weeks to develop what he taught me. I imagine there is a lifetime there of skills to learn. Thank you. ...
