I am a freelance photographer in business since 2007. I specialize in portrait photography. If you know nothing about digital photography, digital cameras, or Adobe Photoshop, then we need to talk.
If you already know the basics but would like to take it to the next level, I can help you with that. I've taught people how to shoot in the dreaded manual mode in just about an hour.
If you simply want to take better pictures, then call me.
If you just bought a new camera and would like to learn how to use it, or you would like me to help you select one, I'm your man.
I also have a complete lighting and background setup if that's what you want to learn.
And let's not forget Adobe Photoshop - I can bring my my laptop or we can use yours. I can show you how to enhance and retouch a photograph like a pro.
My lessons are no-nonsense and FUN. Plus, I'm super patient with my students. There is no such thing as a dumb question. You pick the location of the lesson. I know a lot of nice locations in the area to practice your new skills too.

Even though I sort of had a clue as to what I was doing with Photoshop, Andres showed me some things that I had been trying to figure out on my own. His expertise and guidance were something that put me at a different level in what I could do with Photoshop. He was patient and answered all of my questions, even though I'm sure I asked the same ones a couple of times. He was more than willing to show me everything he knew, and although we only had an hour together, he was able to show me so much. Very grateful for that!
Andres is a very good teacher. He explains everything and answers questions on the spot. We had a lot of questions and he had no problem helpin us. He was on time, very patient and very nice. We had a good experience and learned a lot from him. We definitely recommend him to anyone that wants to learn photography. Thanks Andres! :)
Andres was a great help. I already new how to use my camera, but Andres helped teach me how to take a photo. Even though he was not familiar with my particular camera, he decided to read about and study my camera before coming to see me. That is a thoughtful gesture, and something you want in a quality tutor. He was able to answer all of my questions. We also critiqued photos I have already taken. This really helps me understand what I am doing right and wrong. We also looked at some of his professional photos, which shows me what is possible as I become a better photographer.
After some practice, I know I will feel more confident when I want to capture that special moment. My goal is to use the full Manual mode on the camera, and with the help from Andres, I know I will be able to reach that goal.
He was a good tutor and very helpful. If you are looking to become a better photographer, I know Andres is the right tutor for you!
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.
I have been using and training people in the use of Photoshop as long as I've been a pro photographer - which is about 6 years now. I have used Adobe Photoshop versions 7 through version CS5 to edit my images. I have attended the NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals) conference each year for the past 4 years and also take advanced Photoshop courses at my local college to keep my knowledge up-to-date.
I have been a pro photographer for 6 years now. I shoot both portrait and landscape photography. Occasionally I do train novice and intermediate photographers. I have used Adobe Photoshop versions 7 through version CS5 to edit my images. I have also trained people in the use of Photoshop.
