I have been a professional photographer for the past 15 years in Columbus, Ohio and recently moved to Denver Colorado. I've always been open to tutoring or helping beginning photographers, or even someone who wants to improve their skills. My years of experience and schooling in photography can help guide you into being a better photographer whether your goal is to be a better photographer for your own personal photographs or becoming a professional photographer.
I can offer tutoring, teaching or coaching in using Adobe Photoshop, posing people as individuals and groups, mastering your equipment, advice in future equipment, learning photography basics and well as advanced techniques, learning off camera and on camera flash photography, taking nature photography and more.

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've used Adobe Photoshop since the days of Photoshop 3.0. It is what I started using when I first started working images up for publications. As Photoshop has grown, so has my skill level with it. I've learned to use layers effectively to allow manipulation of an image without damaging the initial image's starting point. I've learned several methods of color correction in Photoshop and several ways to manipulate lighting in an image. I've learned paths and the many diverse abilities of filters. However, Photoshop isn't just about photos.
I've used it to create designs for websites as well as to create individual graphics. It has near limitless possibilities and quite often there are more than one way to achieve the results desired.
More recently Photoshop includes the ability to work with video, and though I'm more of an Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects fan for that type of work, it does offer some interesting abilities to manipulate video.
Overall, I have 15 years experience using Photoshop to work photographs for news publications. In addition, I have used it to help create my own websites and as well as images for other people's sites. I have also used it to manipulate photographs for my own personal creations.
15 years of near daily use tends to give someone a level of proficiency in anything!
I would classify my knowledge and abilities in Photoshop as proficient and well versed. I can create my designs out of a blank slate, or I can take a photograph, or several photographs, and work it into a solitary creation. However, there is always room to learn more and Photoshop is one of those programs that even a classified expert doesn't happen to know everything.
I've been a professional photographer for over 15 years so I know my way around a camera. I've shot with both film and still cameras with both Nikon and Canon equipment. I know how to use F-stops, ISO's, flash, filters, and much more.
For the past 2 years I've created video using the advanced digital hdslr and audio equipment. I've used Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro to create projects for clients.
