I have been teaching Photoshop in the Metroplex area for over 15 years. Three of those years was spent teaching in the Visual Communication Department for a Dallas
community college. I was an artist for props on Walker Texas Ranger. I worked with product photography and provided workshops for defense contractors. I have been featured at events sponsored by local camera stores. I taught a Basic Digital Camera class at the Apple Store and created a summer workshop at SMU for youth programs. What is your learning style? We go at your pace and tailor the instruction to meet your project requirements. My methods are current and non destructive to original files. I am familiar with all versions of Photoshop. I am fluent on both Mac and PC platforms. We can do this at your location with a 2 hour minimum or by the hour at my office location. You will find me to be a gentle and patience instructor.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been in the photo industry for over 20 years, selling cameras and teaching Photoshop. I was an adjunct faculty member at Brookhaven Community College in Dallas for three years, teaching Photoshop, visual communications and digital photography. I developed and taught a summer children's program at SMU in digital photography for four seasons. I conduct workshops as a Photoshop presenter for Arlington Camera at an Arlington hotel for a variety of Photoshop related topics. I lead photo adventure trips to Colorado and Florida to photograph wildlife. I was the artist on Walker Texas Ranger in photo manipulation, and I've done restorations for galleries, labs, and camera stores on a wholesale basis. I work as a digital consultant for TI, Lockheed Martin, ATT, JC Penney, and other prominent industries.

Photography

I have been in the photo industry for over 20 years. I have taught formally at the Community College level. I have worked with film and then later making the digital transition. I am proficient on Mac and PC platforms and teach best practices for an organized image management workflow. I have worked with all brands of cameras. My students own primarily Nikon or Canon DSLR cameras. I have a studio at my learning center or I can help you set up yours. I use Novatron strobes for most of my studio work. I have shot events, weddings, table top products, images for Ebay use, head shots, real estate and wildlife. If you are good with a camera, I can make you better. If you are new to photography, I am patient. My last student is shooting for Jane Goodall in Ngamba and we work on publications for the Chimpanzee Sancturay.

Dress for the environment. This sounds so simple yet I will have a student show up for a long hike in flip flops! Always, always wear good sneakers or hiking boots with socks (even in the summer). Layered clothing is best. Long sleeves can keep you warm or keep you from getting a sunburn. Long sleeves are actually cooler in the summer. A white or gray over shirt can also double as a tool for... read more

With digital photographic equipment, the temptation is always to seek out the biggest, baddest, fastest, coolest tool on the market. Bigger cards are certainly more expensive which is often how we measure value and quality! For those working with Huge RAW picture files, this may be a viable option. When purchasing memory cards and photographing with a 10 or 12 megapixel camera, I still prefer... read more
