About Jay

I'm a commercial photographer with extensive experience in many types of photography, from product to aerials to portraits. I also do a great deal of photo retouching, including work for a large national retailer. I love to show others how to excel at photography and/or Photoshop. I especially enjoy teaching how to do things more efficiently, such as taking advantage of the many keyboard shortcuts available in Photoshop. There's nothing I enjoy more than the thrill of helping someone else do something that want to do but didn't have the knowledge to accomplish.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 fifteen years experience in Photoshop. I do retouching for several large, national clients, including a well-known national retailer. My expertise in Photoshop is primarily related to retouching photography, as opposed to creating original works. I love sharing my knowledge, and especially enjoy showing others how to work efficiently with shortcuts, actions, etc.

Photography

I have been doing commercial photography for 33 years. For the past 14 years I have run a digital photography studio for a large commercial printer. I have done work for Frito-Lay, Brinkann, Concentra, Behringer-Harvard, Nokia, NEC, SMU University and many others. I am proficient with Nikon and Canon DSLRs, medium format digital systems, and Sinar large-format digital systems.
