Welcome to my Wyzant profile. Thank you for this opportunity to tell you something about myself and about the world of Photoshop.

My name is Ray and I am the owner of a professional digital imaging studio. I have trained a vast number of professionals in Photoshop and other computer graphics art programs. Photoshop, however, is not only for professionals. It is a powerful program which is fun and easy to learn, and valuable to students, artists, and every person interested in photography and art.

There are many ways to learn computer programs such as Photoshop, but the fastest and most pleasurable avenue is a one-on-one in person lesson. Art and talent essentially boil down to one thing: patience. You need to hang in there until you learn the basics and, while you may doubt that you have the patience to become great, I can assure you that I have the patience to help you get there quickly.

Now just a word on where my interest in art has brought me. I have retouched thousands of photographs for celebrities and products which have appeared in magazines and billboards all over the world. I have illustrated book covers for some of the best selling authors. I have created medical illustrations to help doctors understand human anatomy. I have created imagery for NASA and for scientific and medical institutions. I have created 3D computer graphics animations for television and have written and appeared in several television programs. The point is that you don't know where anything you learn will lead you. The important thing is to start the journey and, if I can help you, it will be my pleasure.
