Bio

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...

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.

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.

Very knowledgeable and patient instructor.

I had a great lesson with Tony. Very knowledgeable with a thoughtful approach in helping me get started and my foot in the door with Lightroom. Will be reaching out to Tony again to further my Lightroom and Photoshop education. Great guy! Highly recommend... Go with confidence.

Very patient, knowledgeable with a compatible personality

Tony's personality enhances his tutoring. I thought we meshed very well. He was patient in answering my questions and never assumed that I should know these answerers but his patience enabled me to answer my own questions thus reinforcing my learning curve and overall knowledge.

Proficient & Knowledgeable Tutor

Tony introduced me to Photoshop & it's various tools for editing my images for presentation to art galleries. He possesses excellent communication skills and ensures your understanding of new information via your hands-on demonstration of your newly acquired skills....'learning by doing'. Tony is an excellent communicator & tutor as well as very knowledgeable of the Photoshop platform and programs. Knowing my end-goal upfront, allowed him to come up with the best Photoshop programs for my specific needs. Armed with greater confidence in using the Photoshop platform, will allow me to complete the initial task of editing my artwork images for later export to my iPad for gallery presentations.

Sher, 1 lesson with Tony
Tutor responded:

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.
