My name is John. I grew up in Glenview, and started shooting when I was in high school at Glenbrook South. I worked my way through college at Columbia College Chicago, and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with honors in Photography. You can rest assured if you have film questions, or digital questions I know the answer, or have dealt with it at some point. I am a professional photographer, and when I have spare time, I love to help others looking to learn about photography, and editing their images. Let me know how I can help you!

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

I am proficient in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. I have taken classes at Northern Illinois University starting with Photoshop 4. I have printed my own images and have done graphic design for The Botanic Gardens, The Chicago Bears, and several private clients. I have taught Photoshop and Photoshop elements freelance since 2005. I also have a BFA from Columbia College in Photography with honors. I was awarded a free pass to Photoshop World in Boston after a letter of recommendation was sent to The National Association of Photoshop Professionals by my design teacher at Columbia. I was one of only 5 students nationwide to have this honor. I am still a member of NAPP.

Photography

I am proficient with Nikon cameras and their functionality. I have worked with 35mm cameras since 1987, and developed my own film and prints, both color and black and white, and have shot with digital cameras since their inception. I have taken classes at Northern Illinois University, and Columbia College Chicago, and have BFA in Photography from Columbia with honors.
