About Peter


Bio

I love the digital photography world! But my passion for photography and instructing goes back to 1990 when I purchased my first camera. I began shooting weddings and landscapes a year later and switched to digital images in 2001. I’ve been an instructor at Microsoft and Nintendo, helping employees of various skill levels gain the knowledge they need.

I love the digital photography world! But my passion for photography and instructing goes back to 1990 when I purchased my first camera. I began shooting weddings and landscapes a year later and switched to digital images in 2001. I’ve been an instructor at Microsoft and Nintendo, helping employees of various skill levels gain the knowledge they need.

Having used Lightroom since it first came out in 2007, I enjoy how it can make photography more simple and expand possibilities. I excel at helping clients like you understand how the catalog works, how best to filter through the tons of images we all take and tips to keep sane through the process.

I teach my own photography workshops in Seattle, Los Angeles, Portland and other West Coast location and have been doing so since 2011. In that time I’ve worked with over 100 clients on a one-on-one basis while also authoring well over 350 photography posts on Digital Photography School, a leading photography blog. I also lead photography tours to Nepal and Bhutan.

Basically, I love photography and helping others learn the joy of the craft. Whether for income or enjoyment, I would be happy to help you expand your knowledge.

I have been using Adobe Lightroom since version 1 came out in 2007. Before that I suffered along with basic programs and folders to organize my images. I know what it’s like to be clueless about where to start and I have patience to help others get the most out of the program.

My catalog now contains over 290,000 images and I can find almost any subject quickly and efficiently. I’ve grown with the program and it is an indispensable part of my workflow.

I have shot weddings and landscapes since 1991, with over 150 ceremonies completed to date. I shoot a variety of subjects and professional get paid to shoot weddings, portraits, commercial and residential real estate, products, headshots, travel and drone imagery.

My work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Audubon, Alaska Airlines Magazine and many other publications. I have wo

I started in photography during the days of film, experimenting in the darkroom while honing my skills. In 2001 I went digital and have loved how it opens up possibilities and results for any style of photography. I have a laid-back style of teaching and I take the time to really understand what my students want and how best to help them learn before proceeding.

Knowledgeable and helpful Tutor

Peter helped me find some of my photos in lightroom. He took out some photos that didn't belong in Lightroom. He also showed me how to load photos into picture folders. He showed me how to clean up my folders as some photos were in the wrong folders. I found it most helpful. I will probably ask for his help in the future.

Peter was amazing to work with

Peter was on time and ready to teach. He did a great job going over my camera, and how I can take better pictures. Can’t wait to work more with him in the future.

Very knowledgeable and professional tutor.

I have several past tutors on the subject of Photography and Lightroom, and Peter most certainly surpasses all of them. First of all, he is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about what he teaches. Secondly, he’s able to present his knowledge in a very organized manner targeted to the level of the student. My first lesson was both informative and energizing. I plan to continue my journey into photography under Peter’s guidance.

Set up Adobe cloud structure between devices

Peter is an excellent instructor and a swell guy. It was a pleasure to have him clearly explain and set right an organizational problem that had plagued me for months. 100% worth his fee and then some.

Lightroom Overview

Organizing, labeling folders. Setting up print dialogue.I still need follow-up with regards using folders etc. and closing out of the print menu.

Lorraine, 2 lessons with Peter

Patient, helpful and KNOWLEDGEABLE Lightroom tutor.

I've learned more in 2 sessions working directly with Peter than dozens of hours watching YouTube tutorials. Will continue to use his help to build my Lightroom proficiency. Highly recommend.

Travis, 3 lessons with Peter

Knowledgeable, patient, helpful

Peter took me through Lightroom and helped me understand some of the not-so-obvious features. It was a great one-hour tutorial and I learned way more than what I was able to find online or watch on YouTube. Plus - Peter is an exceptional professional and easy to work with.
