I am an experienced photographer currently working in event and portrait photography. I studied in the fine art conservatory of Purchase College and have a solid background in both color and black and white, film and digital. I am proficient with dark room technique and very skilled with Photoshop. I have used and am conversant in numerous Adobe products on both Mac and Windows platforms. I feel I have a knack for explaining things in an easy to understand manner in a laid back atmosphere. If you are looking to expand your knowledge of photography, film or digital, or need help with post production then I'm your girl!

Adobe Photoshop

I have been working with Adobe Photoshop since version 7. I have taken numerous college courses in digital imaging and use my knowledge every day. I am currently employed full time with a high end photo studio and do all of the retouching and photo editing for them using the latest version of Photoshop and Lightroom. I am very proficient in a range of uses including restoration, spot removal, beauty retouching, album design and tuning, as well as basic file manipulation. This includes color, density and black and white treatments among other things.

Art History

I attended SUNY Purchase's Fine Art Conservatory and was required to take a number of art history classes ranging from ancient art to modern in a variety of mediums. In addition to the standard classic and contemporary courses I also took a number of photography history courses as well as one specific to digital mediums. I regularly attend gallery exhibits in Manhattan as well as museums.

Photography

I am a working photographer who uses my skills every week photographing events. I use high end cameras and lighting equipment and have extensive knowledge of the technical as well as artistic aspects of photography. I have also shown work in a number of gallery shows.
