I have over 25 years of experience as a photographer, both corporate and commercial as well as people photography. I have been using Photoshop for over 15 years and teach it at a college level as well as Lightroom. I teach at a fast pace but in a very comprehensive fashion. I have had students from 16 to 65. I teach both basic and advanced skills in both hardware (photography) as well as software. I can teach on site at my place or yours, or we can work remotely through Skype.
