About Michael

My qualifications for teaching photography and related subjects:

I previously owned my own business teaching Photoshop, Lightroom, beginners and advanced photography techniques. For 2 years, Broward Community College paid me as an independent photographer for their special events. My equipment and software is extensive and up to date. My experience is both in Windows and Mac operating systems. My work is being sold through stock photography companies. Works of mine have been exhibited at many photographic venues. I have also won some awards for my work.

All photo post-processing and printing is done on my own. My computer experience includes Microsoft certification accreditation. I am excellent at teaching photographic skills because of my experience and my love for it.

I have given to the community by volunteering my time and effort to non profit organizations such as ""Wish For U" Foundation (Children with Cancer), Firefighters of Florida and Make a Wish Foundation.

With my help, your skills will improve and your photos will stand out in the crowd. In between tutoring classes, I provide booklets with helpful, easy to follow instructions for home study. Photography will include field trips for hands-on learning. Lightroom and Photoshop classes can be taught on either Mac or Windows computers. Instruction on printing is also included. As an option, third party plugin software for Lightroom and Photoshop can be studied as well.

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 have been using Photoshop, Lightroom and 3rd party plugins for many years and have taught these programs to individuals when I owned my own business. My photos have been on exhibition many times. My stock photos have been licensed for use in ads, on book covers and magazines. I also teach photography and photo printing if you are interested. I can teach on either a Mac or Windows computer.

Macintosh

Macintosh hardware and software. (Leopard, Snow Leopard and Lion OS)

Learn how to operate, navigate, back up and maintain Mac computers and laptops. Learn how to browse the internet safely for enjoyment, shopping and learning. Knowing shortcuts makes your work easier and allows you to get more done. I can help you update and upgrade your Operating System as well. My current position is a support technician for all Mac computers and iOS devices. I personally own an iPhone 4S, iPad2, MacBookPro, iPod Touch and iMac desktop. These products are not cheap. Why not get all you can from them. Not knowing how to access and use all the built in Mac features is short-changing your computing experience. Don't be afraid of technology, work with it and get all the benefits that come with it. My educational techniques will get you to this point.
