My name is John R., and I specialize in high-end Portrait and Lifestyle Retouching. For more than 25 years, I’ve been working in the printing, photography, retouching, marketing, and graphic design fields. So if you have questions on Lightroom or Photoshop, then I have all the answers.

If you are looking for simple tutor, I can help you get things organized and teach you how to color correct. But a few of the more common questions and issues for beginners often involve everything from calibrating your monitor to finding missing photos. Why doesn’t Lightroom seem to support your camera? What’s that question mark doing there? How can you organize my images for a better workflow?

Do any of these questions sound familiar? Don’t worry, your not alone. How to speed up performance, how to use multiple catalogs, which Color Profile to use, and how to keep your cool when you lose all your photos, are all very common questions for me. If your having technical issues, then I can give you technical solutions.

Best of all, no matter where you need to start, I can demystify learning Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom to get you retouching like a pro within a very short period of time.

If your not sold yet that I can be a great resource for you, then here is a bit more about me.

Over the past 10 years, My training articles have been featured in Advanced Photoshop, Photoshop Creative, Digital Photographer, and Retouching Academy. I also do live training for RetouchPro, Hartford Adobe, as well as in my own studio.

I have written three books on Adobe Photoshop, and have my own training website. I have 4 Photoshop courses that I teach students, depending on their skill level.

When it comes to Lightroom, anyone can teach you about Color Sliders. However, I have a Lightroom Course that is really more about giving you a workflow that will provide fast, consistent and repeatable results. I have developed a course for Lightroom that will help get you over the starting hump, and get you well on your way to Photography success. The co

Excellent

John straightened out some problems I was having with importing photos. He was patient and to the point and taught me a few short cuts. He knows Lightroom very well and I would recommend him.

Melissa, 1 lesson with John

Helpful and patient

John did a great job listening to understand my goals and to help me begin the steps to get there. And he helped me identify some other things along the way that were useful.

Nathan, 3 lessons with John

Significant Photoshop progress in a short period of time

A clear and direct communicator, John was a pleasure to work with. He immediately determined my level of knowledge, and began teaching from there. He was very centered around my knowledge level and my learning pace. He was clear and patient in his instruction, and adapted his teaching to my learning style. In addition, john’s teaching and experience background is impressive.

The best in a crisis!

He was so patient when explaining concepts and was super knowledgable. He was willing to look into all options to help me. He went above and beyond the scope of our session
