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.
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.
