About Tony

I really enjoy helping people of all ages learn Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. I have been teaching both programs for over ten years while maintaining a 35+ year career as a professional photographer.

Digital photographs, whether taken with a professional-type DSLR or a smartphone camera, all need refinement using computer imaging software. My workflow instruction has enabled many students to advance their photography. Learning how to use presets to quickly and effectively adjust your camera originals is one of several key learning experiences that will make you a better, smarter photographer.

I have been an Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom user from each program's early days; Photoshop 2.5, 1992 and Lightroom 2, 2008 I currently subscribe to Adobe's Photography Program and use it on both PC and Mac platforms.

I have been a professional photographer for over 35 years specializing in sports photography. I have been twice awarded Golf Photographer of the Year.

Please feel free to contact me for any questions you have about photography and digital imaging. I look forward to scheduling lessons with you.

Sher is a great listener and she quickly picked up Photoshop skills. She had a specific goal in mind on how to edit images of her artworks. Together we created a platform for her to use for her future work. Altogether, working with Sher was a great experience.

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

User of Adobe Photoshop since version 2.5 (Windows), 1996 and Adobe Lightroom version 1, 2008. I use both Mac and Windows versions of both programs and have an annual subscription to the Adobe Photography program. I have been a professional photographer for over 35 years specializing in sports photography. I was twice awarded Golf Photographer of the Year.

Photography

I have been a professional photographer for 35+ years. I have expert knowledge of equipment, composition, and post production of images. I have also been teaching photography both in workshops and in private study for more than ten years. My teaching methods concentrate more on the concept of a photograph rather than what kind of camera you have. Any camera can take a good photograph just like any stove can cook a good meal. Training the eye to look and to see is the essence of the art of photography. I look forward to helping anyone become a better photographer.

I met with Tony to learn the fundamentals of digital photography. After purchasing my Nikon D3300, I had taken advantage of some online courses and resources but was feeling a bit overwhelmed by the quantity of content and knew that I needed the information to be more digestible, practical, and personalized. Tony helped to really simplify the basics for me and answer all of the specific questions
