From beginners to professional photographers and from college students to retirees, you'll find David a mature, comfortable tutor with lots of patience, a sense of humor and complete dedication to your learning experience. It doesn’t matter if you have Macintosh computer skills or camera knowledge, David will listen to your expectations and create lessons based on your needs, not from a book, leapfrogging you to the other side of understanding your camera, computer or software.
And, since Aperture and iPhoto are being discontinued in the fall of 2014, he can also show you how to convert your libraries and import them into Lightroom.
David was an early 1980s pioneer in digital photography. He is a thoroughly experienced, working professional with 100’s of awards to his name, including those from the Art Directors Annual, Society of Publication Designers, Apple Computer and Nikon. His stock photography is represented by Corbis, Getty and Image Source, and he has work in the permanent collection of MoMA. He's been featured in HOW Magazine, Computer Graphics World and Advertising Age with guest speaking engagements at the Art Directors Club, Nikon House and PhotoExpo in NYC. His experience with Adobe Lightroom started in 2007 and he's been a Photoshop retoucher for two decades. For ten years he was an adjunct professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology, where he was known for his easygoing, yet in-depth approach to teaching a broad range of students from around the world.
