I teach photography at a variety of adult and children’s venues. From 2011 to the present, I’ve taught classes in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Photoshop, Macro, and Smartphone photography at the following venues: College of Marin, Santa Rosa Junior College, Samy’s Photo (San Francisco)
Looking Glass Photo (Berkeley), Keeble and Shuchat Photography (Palo Alto), Pt. Reyes National Seashore Association, Marin Filmworks, City of Walnut Creek Civic Arts Education Program, Seawood Photo (San Anselmo). Most recently, I taught at Stanford University through their Continuing Studies program.

I like to have my students complete my online Digital Skills Assessment, which helps me see your strengths and challenges and helps me plan to make the most efficient use of our time together.

I've created a number of handouts and Powerpoint demonstrations, which I'm continually updating, to offer you the best instruction possible.

I've worked with a variety of ages and abilities - I even taught photography at a camp for the blind! I conduct evaluations in all my classes (although not required at most places where I teach), so I can continue to improve my teaching.

Photography instruction can either take place at my studio, your place, or remotely over the Internet. I look forward to helping you take your photography to the next level!

Photography

Photography

I began photographing my dog when I was 9 with a Kodak Brownie camera. From there, I graduated, with my dad’s instruction, to a Kodak Retina I (c. 1939), a light meter, and a darkroom. My experience is varied from shooting portraits, exploring the intimate world of macro photography, to teaching pinhole camera construction at a camp for the blind. My photographs have either won or placed in almost every photographic competition I’ve entered including most winning “Best of Show” at the Marin County Fair. My work has been utilized by colleges, a literary magazine, non-profit service organizations, corporations. Images from my travels to to Africa were the basis of an interactive multi-media CD-ROM used to promote an African vacation for an employee sales incentive reward program. And I still like taking pictures of my dog.

Great LR Organization tutor

My LR was a complete rat's nest. 6 years or so ago, I just jumped into using the develop module, figured out some import functions and never looked back at where LR was storing, sorting etc. Just kept buying more external hard drives. Remotely, Reid worked with me on my computer and started a reorganization. The benefits were twofold: A foundational reorganization was put in place and while he worked and we talked I learned a lot about how it should be done for the future. So, in the end, I learned a lot and got something needed accomplished. It was both good tutoring and good technical assistance. If any of this fits you and your status as a LR user, I highly recommend seeking out Reid. David in Berkeley, California

Knowledgeable, patient and kind

Great session organizing my Lightroom photos and maximizing my iPhone settings! I had been frustrated with transfer of my photos from Aperture to Lightroom and Reid helped me expedite the process and import the photos into the correct collection.

Best way to learn all parts of Lightroom

Reid T was great to work with on Lightroom especially setting up the fastest ways to import into a folder structure and collections. I found him very patient and diligent in getting my Lightroom properly set up which was all done over the internet and phone. I live in Oregon and he lives in California. I highly recommend Reid. He will not let you down.

Reid is a great find!

I have now completed two sessions with Reid and I am excited to continue. He and I engaged based on my interest in improving my Lightroom skills but I expect that his instruction will be more broad than just post production work. He and I are already discussing my need to improve my shooting skills and camera knowledge. He shoots on a Nikon and works in a PC Windows post production environment as do I. That alignment makes learning much faster for me.

Patient, enthusiastic and open to all my questions

We accomplished so much in 2 hours! He answered every question I had, and I felt comfortable in asking as many as I needed to have answered. I look forward to working with Reid and honing my Lightroom skills as well as skills in photography.

Cleaned up my light room mess

Was very helpful in cleaning up my mini catalog and putting my light room into a workable program. He also was able to show me many shortcuts in tricks to use in light room. I could not have been more please with my results.

Chesley, 3 lessons with Reid

Thanks!

I learned a lot in two hours, enough to get me past the obstacles I'd run into and much more. Reid is easy to work with and knows Lightroom and and out.

William, 1 lesson with Reid

extremely knowledgable

He stressed the most important and critical thing to know about the program which is where the photos actually exist and how to access them. Explained reasoning for various parts of the initial setup and workflow.

Easy to work with

I liked working with Reid. He helped me learn how to use a new camera as well as basic photo skills. He is a very pleasant guy and extremely experienced. I would work with him in the future.
