About Glenn


Bio

I have an innate drive to succeed and to help others succeed as well. My love of learning translates into a love of teaching. I have been inspired by some great teachers in my time and I wish to follow their example. As I learn, I feel a responsibility to pass on that knowledge to help others grow along with me. I am patient and an excellent choice for new students while also possessing the knowledge to help intermediate students grow to an advanced level.

With over 17 years experience...

I have an innate drive to succeed and to help others succeed as well. My love of learning translates into a love of teaching. I have been inspired by some great teachers in my time and I wish to follow their example. As I learn, I feel a responsibility to pass on that knowledge to help others grow along with me. I am patient and an excellent choice for new students while also possessing the knowledge to help intermediate students grow to an advanced level.

With over 17 years experience in advertising, with an emphasis on photography, graphic design, and photo corrections using Adobe Photoshop, I bring practical, real-world knowledge to my lessons.

I can explain not only "how" to make adjustments in Photoshop, but also "why" to do it a certain way. I go beyond the basics of levels and paths and take you into the heart of Photoshop to show you the flexibility and power of this amazing application. I will open the toolbox and show you how and when to use each of the many options available.

I can help beginning photographers become comfortable with the camera and have them shooting professional quality photos in no time. With me, you'll learn the meaning of mysterious terms like f-stop and ISO. You'll also learn the basic principals of lighting and how to get the best shot under difficult conditions.

For beginning graphic designers, I can take you beyond the theories and teach you to apply those theories in a work environment. Learn principals like balanced design, font selection, and application for everything from web and print to point-of-purchase signs and billboards.

As I am a working professional, most of my availability is in the evenings and on weekends, however I am willing to discuss special time requests. Because my time is limited, I do ask for a 24-hour cancellation on any scheduled lessons. I am willing to travel to you as I find students learn better in familiar environments.

I look forward to hearing from you. I hope we can work together to help you achieve your goals and experience the rush of not only learning a new skill, but truly mastering an art form.

I have nearly 20 years of on-the-job experience with Photoshop in a fast-paced environment. This has taught me how to be efficient and effective with my work and I can help you learn those techniques as well. Working in advertising has taught me everything from the basic skills to more advanced techniques of color correcting and photo manipulation. I'm also experienced with preparing images for a variety of uses from print to online.
Graphic Design,

Graphic Design

As one of three graphic designers working in-house for a major retail chain, I was responsible for designing elements from point of purchase signs and fliers to online ads and billboards. I am familiar with design theory and practice as required in a real-world work environment. I can teach layout, balancing elements, incorporating type, color theory, and more. I also understand how to work within brand guidelines to achieve a consistent look, which is an important requirement in any design job.

I have over 17 years of practical, work-based experience as a photographer. My photos have been used in print, web, and outdoor advertising campaigns for a local retail company. As the in-house photographer, I was solely responsible for the quality of the photos used in all areas of the business. I was also tasked with giving instruction and training to new assistant photographers and am well versed in how to explain complex subjects in a clear and understandable fashion.
