I am a professional photographer and digital artist with twenty-two years experience in photography
. I have been using Adobe Photoshop
professionally since 1998, in various roles including catalog pre-press (film
scanning, retouching, color correction, masking, layers) to creative web and print design roles. I currently work in the furniture industry and use professional Canon digital SLR’s for portrait and product photography. I also have an avid interest in fine art
photography, particularly in digitally generated black and white gallery printing. I still occasionally return to the traditional darkroom to print large format film (4” x 5”) as well.
In my professional career, I have always had the pleasure and responsibility of teaching my craft. I really enjoy working with creative people from all walks of life, from aspiring graphic designers to serious photography enthusiasts. Photography is a wonderful medium, and there are more tools and materials to explore today than ever before. The digital world can be a little daunting at first, with such a wide array of digital cameras, printers and accessories. My goal with students is to encourage and nurture their creative passions while giving them a solid foundation in the principles and practices of photography and digital editing
I am available most evenings and weekends, and will tailor lessons to suite the individual’s needs. Whether you want to learn how to clean up old damaged scans of family portraits to make great prints, or take on the world of digital photography
My fees start at thirty dollars an hour for basic instruction in Adobe Photoshop
. I provide a suggest reading
list of books and online tutorials, as well as my own copies of quick cheat sheets and notes that I have collected over the years. I like to talk to prospective students over the phone before the first lesson to get a better understanding of their needs.

Why shoot film? I've seen this question posted on various photography websites and blogs for a number of years now, and many of these arguments were very well crafted and passionate with sometimes indisputable points for the use of film. I think at this
point in time, however, one can argue that there is absolutely no commercial viability to film photography. I feel sorry for the poor but eager...
Recently, I was helping a friend and coworker design and develop a printed in-store merchandising guidebook that would show employees how to set up and display new product in a retail store, in this case, home furnishings. Not only would this one hundred
plus page full-color catalog provide the retail stores with a great tool for store setup, but it would also help educate new employees on...
As a professional photographer, I love having the option to shoot both color and black and white. Years ago, I had to choose what kind of film to put into my camera. This could be a problem since I might have a job that required both color and black and
white, often at the same time! Luckily, digital photography has solved a lot of these problems. Now, when I shoot digital, I always shoot in...
