I have been teaching classes in Basic and Intermediate Photography for over six years at the Los Angeles Center of Photography, and currently lead several on location workshops as well. I have tutored and trained groups and individuals in Adobe Photoshop for over twenty years and in LIghtroom since its inception.

I have worked as a professional commercial and editorial photographer in New York and Los Angeles for over twenty five years. For much of that period I owned and ran a small photo agency that represented over 40 photographers (including myself) and this enabled me to become proficient with all aspects of digital image management including workflow, cataloging, meta data storage, archiving and copyright protection and licensing.

I help my students with solutions, whether it is learning how to use a digital camera and apply basic photo techniques and principles, or teaching people how to organize and manage a collection of several thousand images. I work patiently with my students and classes, making sure I listen and understand their specific needs and then setting up a course that will best communicate and demonstrate the answers to those needs.

Credentials: Adobe Photoshop (since version 2.0); Adobe LIghtroom (since version 1.0); Basic and Intermediate Photography instructor; experienced photo retoucher and digital illustrator; photo organizer (member of APPO - the Association of Personal Photo Organizers)

I have been teaching basic and intermediate photography classes as well as several location workshops for over six years at the Los Angeles Center of Photography and I also work with individuals as a private tutor that I get through the school and through my own efforts. I have worked as a freelance commercial and editorial photographer for over twenty five years and started and owned my own photo agency for almost twenty years. I truly appreciate the fact that I have something to give back, that my experience can hopefully inspire others. When you have been shooting for as long as I have, it is so helpful to go into a class and be forced to articulate things you have done intuitively and without thinking for years, It definitely keeps me fresh and sharp.

Helpful Tutor

Peter helped diagnosis the problem with my current workflow and developed and short term and longer term solution in advance of a trip. His approach was simple and his style of teaching very understated and helpful.

Excellent!

Peter was great to work with. He is experienced, knowledgeable, patient, very clear in his explanations. He solved my problem. Without him, I would have been lost. I recommend him without hesitation.
