About Paul

I have a passion for photography and love to work with people. I had the pleasure of teaching photography, digital multi-media, and PC computer use to classes of middle-school students for 9 years. I'm now enjoying the pleasure of working with the older age group; senior citizens.

When you are as excited and passionate about something, you seek out those with the same interest. To be able to share what I know, to inspire and to be inspired by others is incredibly fulfilling. I am an artists (photographic), consumed with my passion to go beyond what the average person sees; to capture, manipulate, present and share my work with others.

Computers have intrigued me since 1984 - I've built my own ever since that date. They are fascinating - who needs TV? Pretty much anything you want to know, I can show you.

I believe I have an innate ability to connect with people, to be engaged with them. As much as I am, and have been an instructor - I'm a listener. I frequently paraphrase with students to garner the best understanding I can of their question, dilemma, vision.

Goodness, to be a photographic artist and a computer guru; to learn, to teach - that, is my passion.

I am a professional photographer and have used Lightroom since it's inception.

I create collections in the Library module to organize images into categories for weddings or multi-part events.

Photoshop is the tool of choice for anyone that is serious about getting the most out of their photographs.
