NY College professor teaching photography and digital editing available to tutor you one to one. Learn how to maximize the use of your expensive cameras with the 'holy trinity' of photography. Learn the compositional skills that turn your pictures from snapshots to professional looking photographs. Afterwards bring your photographs into Photoshop and retouch them subtly, or create creative collages from your own pictures or get pictures from the web. Also learn the very important skill of digital file management. Be able to find any file in 5 minutes or less.
I have had many years of teaching as well as being a working photographer. If you are interested in learning any of the above skills, I can provide you with samples as well as posted testimonials. In an objective humble description of myself, I am creative, technical, experienced, reliable, patient and funny. Oh yes, and mature.
