About Corey

Do you want to be a better photographer? Do you want to be a whiz at Photoshop and Lightroom?

Learn from a professional photographer with more than 10 years in the industry. My clients have included Nestle, Red Bull, Cisco, South Coast Plaza, Irvine Company, LA Fitness, Revlon, as well as fortune 500 companies. I offer tutoring for private, one-on-one photography, Photoshop, and Lightroom lessons. I’ll teach you how to make perfect portraits, capture beautiful landscapes, and push your camera to its limits to make pictures that are amazing! Whether you are just getting started in photography or want to pick up some professional techniques, I can help you quickly learn the skills you are seeking.

All lessons are tailor-made to each individual’s needs. You will learn more in a few sessions than in an entire semester of school! I have been tutoring in photography and Photoshop for several years, and find the one-on-one environment to be a much better learning environment. I've also assisted in teaching photography and Photoshop skills at San Diego State University and Orange Coast College.

Now’s the time to jump start your digital photography skills with one-on-one instruction tailored to your specific interests. You will learn faster and retain more information with private photography and Photoshop lessons. A two hour minimum is necessary if we are meeting outside my studio.

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 Lightroom

As a professional photographer I use Lightroom on a daily basis. Lightroom is such an amazing program that has so many features, such as the ability to quickly apply corrections across many images at once. Lightroom is also an outstanding organizational tool. Allow me to quickly get you up to speed on the best way to organize and edit your image collection!

Adobe Photoshop

As a professional photographer, I use Adobe Photoshop on a daily basis. Photoshop is a terrific program that has many features which allow you to quickly apply corrections and manipulate an image in anyway that you like. As an industry leader, I have trained top professionals from wedding photographers to small businesses updating their websites, to loving parents trying to improve their photography of their children. All lessons are catered to the individual being trained.

Macintosh

I have 10 years experience working with Mac computers in Photoshop and many Adobe products as well as general computing. I also have many years of building and fixing computers for people. I graduated from San Diego State University and assisted at my computer lab. I would help students who were new to OS X learn to navigate the operating system.

Photography

I have been tutoring photography for several years. I’ve got a degree in Multimedia and also assisted in teaching photography at San Diego State University and other schools. I have more than 10 years of experience in the industry. My clients have included Red Bull, Cisco, Lady Gaga, LA Fitness, Revlon, as well as many fortune 500 companies.

Great Teacher, Very Patient

Corey has been great, from knowing very little in Photoshop I can now create all sorts of different art files. It has taken much less time than I thought it would and in a total of 4 hours have been able to complete the tasks I needed to learn. He is very knowledgeable in many different areas and has been able to help me set up my MAC as well as learn a few things other than just what I requeste
