About Barry

Originally from England, I have lived almost half my life in California now. I have peer tutored college students in various Art subjects including Art History, Art Appreciation, Photography, and Photoshop. As an independent contractor I have taught drawing at eight different elementary schools around Bakersfield for a private after school program. I had a small studio for three years where I provided photography and filmmaking services and workshops for the community.

I have a dual focus Art Associates degree where I studied traditional studio art techniques, digital graphic design, and advanced photography. My Bachelors degree major is in Multidisciplinary Studio Arts, and my minor is in Communications - Digital Media Production. In addition to my collegiate training I have over two decades of personal photography and film making experience creating animations, short films, a feature length movie, and experimental interactive DVD projects.

I love Art. I think that Art and the creative problem solving skills it fosters is useful to anyone, in any field. I love making, creating, exploring new technologies like laser cutting, 3D printing, CGI, and whatever comes next.

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 Illustrator

I have been using the Adobe Master Suite of programs for several years for digital illustration, photo restoration and manipulation.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been working in Photoshop for many years, initially I was self taught, but then I went to college for more formal training.

Drawing

I have been drawing for over 30 years. I have studied art formally for the last five years, including drawing, painting, screen printing, graphic design and many more, most of which require preliminary drawings. I have taught drawing in an elementary after school program. I have drawn everything from gestural sketches, to highly detailed charcoal portraits, cartoons, storyboards, comic books, and caricatures.

Film

My earliest memories are of watching films. I have collected, watched and studied movies for over three decades. I have taken multiple film history and theory courses on my way to getting my Bachelors degree, including genre specific studies, gender, and cultural considerations as they relate to film writing and production.

Photography

I began taking pictures as a child on family vacations and events. I practiced for years before studying formally in college. I took several classes in basic to advanced photography learning techniques from traditional portraiture, to trick photography, HDR, high speed, long exposure et al.

Video Production

I began shooting videos at family events more than 20 years ago. Since then I have filmed short narrative films with friends, filmed live concerts, created experimental interactive DVD projects, and independent short and feature length films. I have worked with SD, HD, 4K, analog and digital cameras and camcorders, DSLR is my current preference because of the balance of cost and features with interchangeable lenses.
