About Ray


Hello, My name is Rayzor.

My experience as a photographer is well rounded and covers many different fields.
I worked for newspapers as a staff photographer shooting editorial and sports, shot weddings for many years, portraits and I finally found my love in fine art and fashion.

Along the way I have picked up extensive experience working in labs with both auto and custom printing color enlargements and small photos. In fact,I have always said that the post-production part of photography was 60% of getting the perfect photo.

NOW...it may be a higher percentage due to Photoshop and other programs where you can adjust and create artwork from a simple photo.

I have managed photo labs for many years and trained countless employees on the "art" of producing photos. In most recent years, I taught a full course of digital photography to customers at Ritz Camera in groups of 20-30 people at a time.

In fashion, I have worked with model agencies across the U.S., helping them develop their new girls(and guys)though pictorials to the point where they could be taken seriously by clients looking to hire them.
I managed a TEAM during these shoots including clothing stylists and make-up and hair artists.
(I continue to work freelance fashion today)

My best trait, and something that makes me a great teacher is I LISTEN to questions and explain answers in a way you can understand with complete patience and understanding that you are either new to photography or simply would like to strengthen your ability in certain areas.

I have strong knowledge in lighting, and can use virtually any light to make an exposure work. In addition, I have a complete understanding in composition, camera settings(like speed and aperture), color balance, the black and white zone system, lighting temperatures and how all these things affect the final photo.

Finally, I can tutor photoshop in reference to editing and working with photos after they are shot.

As a tutor in photography you will feel my passion and love for it throughout any lesson.

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

I am experienced in CS5 and now in CS6 in all aspects of photography use. This would include adjusting, cropping, color correcting, image sizing, masking, and many other manipulative tools Photoshop has to offer. I personally feel that the work you do on the photo after you shoot is just as important in creating great work.

Photography

Fashion photography - I use my experience working with schools, agencies, and clients to help you use productive posing to sell the product (for the clients) rather than just shooting models, and use available lighting situations such as indoor (natural and artificial) and outdoor (fill flash, natural and reflective). I can also assist you in choosing correct the camera equipment to achieve the best results at the lowest costs as well as choosing a make-up artist and stylist to fit the job you need to accomplish.

Portrait photography - I have extensive studio and outdoor portrait photography experience in working with people in anything from weddings to child photography and fashion. I can help with properly choosing equipment (cameras, lighting, and backgrounds) and using that equipment as well as use of both natural and artificial lighting (indoor and outdoor) and exposures.

Sports - I worked for three years as a political event and sports photographer for two newspapers and a US congressman and can use this experience to help you choose proper equipment (camera and lighting), positioning for the "perfect" shot, manipulating shooting situations to get that shot (crowds, bad weather, small indoor venues), and I can help you be more picky in your shooting so to limit endless editing later.
