About Dean

I am a 25 year veteran of creating graphics and manipulating photographic imagery for television, feature film, and my own personal art work.

I have also taught classes at the University and community college level for over 7 years.

I am very good at making difficult things understandable to any level of student, helping them to gain confidence with software and machines for creating imagery, and I make it fun to do.

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 Photoshop

As a college level instructor I have taught Photoshop techniques to students in classes for photography, and computer animation texture mapping for video games and film.

As an artist I have used Photoshop since it was first introduced for television, games, and feature film work.

I also use it for my own personal photography for gallery displayed shows.

Autodesk Maya

My background is in special effects and animation starting with Pacific Data Images (merged with Dreamworks at the time of Shrek). And I have created effects and animations for numerous Superbowl commercials and a few games-- Maya being just one of several 3D Animation packages that I have used extensively.

I just completed a feature film in 2015 as 2nd Unit Director, and 1st Assistant Director. I have 20 years of production experience for television commercials, including Superbowl spots. I am currently working as Cinematographer and Director for television commercials.

Photography

I obtained my Masters degree MFA from Rochester Institute of Technology in New York, Major Photography.

I am familiar with student lighting, and use the same for still photography and filmmaking. I am currently Cinematographer & Director for Television Commercials.

I have personally owned a twins lens Rollei medium format camera.
