About Andrew

I am an excellent Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom tutor with more than 23 years of experience. I tutor Photoshop to all levels - beginners to advanced - and cater to your individual needs and goals. I tutor on a Mac or PC, on-site at your studio or another preferred location, in blocks of 2 or 3 hours.

From 1987 – 1990 I attended Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, MA where I received a B.F.A. in Illustration, Design and Fine Arts. Art college was an excellent place to study composition, color theory, design and art history.

From 1991 to 1993 I attended the School of Visual Arts in New York, NY where I studied Computer Graphics : Photoshop, Illustrator, QuarkXpress, Dreamweaver. I immediately fell in love with Photoshop and took it upon myself to become as good in Photoshop as I could be. I read the more than 800 pages Photoshop Bible by Deke McClelland 4 times through. I then proceeded to build my portfolio and registered with various creative agencies in NYC where I was able to work for various major advertising agencies in NYC as a Photoshop retoucher and photo compositor.

I have worked for Sony, Intel, Jack Morton Worldwide, Herbalife, The Discovery Channel, The Gap, Andresen Digital Imaging, Hewlett Packard, Godiva, Ralph Lauren, Lancome, Revlon, Time Magazine, Phillip Morris, Barbie, Neutrogena, American Express, Finlandia Vodka, BMG Music, T.V. Guide, Lever 2000, Colgate, Sudler & Hennessy, Young & Rubicam Advertising, Tarlow Advertising, Carlson & Partners, Grey Advertising, Hill Holiday Altschiller and more…

From 1999 to 2003 I lived in San Francisco, CA where I worked for advertising agencies, design studios, did retouching for photographers and started tutoring Photoshop more extensively.

In 2004 I moved to Los Angeles where I currently reside and do retouching, photo compositing, and of course Photoshop and Lightroom tutoring.

I am the founder & head organizer for the Photoshop and Lightroom group on Facebook (Since October 2010) which has more than 125,000 Members

I am the Co-organizer for the online Adobe Photoshop Users Group from September 2010 to Present and I was the Co-organizer for the Los Angeles Photoshop User Group from February 2008 to June 2010.

I won the Photoshop Idol 2008 contest hosted by the Los Angeles Adobe User Group, which is about to celebrate their 10 year anniversary.

Testimonials:

“I have lots of good things to say about Andrew. Friendly, funny, helpful, conscientious, and always well prepared when teaching. Andrew brings a wealth of technical knowledge with him that he is more than willing to share with a knowledge-hungry student or an aspiring peer. His tutorials are step-by-step with great flow, where any complex technique becomes so easy to use. If you need help with something, Andrew will help you times ten. I can recommend Andrew, without reservation, to anyone who needs a great and knowledgeable Photoshop tutor who is always available to help at any level.” - Nora F

GREAT Tutor — I would like to express my gratitude to Andrew K. for a great service. I'm a slow learner when it comes to all the technical learning of digital photo editing. My tutor was extremely patient with me, knowledgeable, professional and above all very patient. I'm very happy to find someone like him. I already recommended him to some of my friends. Thank you for your excellent service. ...
