My work on Wyzant specializes in teaching adult learners digital photography and Apple products. I also teach graduate and undergraduate students at the college level and mentor high school students preparing for university programs in the arts.

Among my areas of expertise are Mac Computers & Software, iPads, iPhones, Digital & Analog Photography, Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom CC, Lightroom Classic, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Nik software, Art History & History of Photography.

I have been a professional photographer for over 30 years and teaching for the past 15. In my career, I have been a commercial photographer, professional artist, college professor, and I am a former assistant to world-renown photographer Irving Penn.

I have extensive knowledge of photo editing, photo management and organization, Mac productivity software, scanning, and fine art printing. These skills are used every day in my artistic practice.

I hold a BA from the Brooks Institute of Photography and an MFA in Art from the University of Miami. A master in all aspects of film and digital photography, I am available for portfolio reviews, artist consultations, technical and academic training. If you are taking a high school or college class, I can help you with your studies. If you want to buy a digital camera and learn how to use it, I can advise and instruct. If you need to study or do research for an Art History class or need advice on collecting photography as a hobby or investment, I can help you.

Since 2005, students of all ages and backgrounds have had training with me. Whether you are a beginner or advanced student, I have the experience and knowledge to take your photography and computer skills to the next level.

Contact me with your questions, requests and to schedule an appointment. I am available for online training for your safety and convenience.

I have been using Adobe Lightroom since 2012. It is the main tool I use for digital asset management for my professional photography career. As an editing tool, I use Lightroom as a standalone application for my work as well as a point of departure for working in Photoshop. This is the best tool for introducing beginning students to digital photographic post-production.

Wes was very knowledgeable and patient

This was my first attempt to learn anything with Photoshop. Wes was very patient and helped me with importing my pictures and formatting them. We then went back over my learnings to make sure I got it.

Tere, 1 lesson with Wes

Wes knows his stuff.

Wes helped me organize my LR catalog with back up drives with redundancy. I'm very pleased with his help. As a photographer, he even recommended some photo plug ins for LR I like.

Brock, 7 lessons with Wes

excellent

Could not have been better. Wes knows his stuff and is an excellent and patient teacher who teaches what you want to learn rather than imposing "his" way. I will sign up with Wes again.

Bill, 2 lessons with Wes

Photoshop Elements help

Patiently, showing me optional ways to clean excess people and "stuff" out of an important family photo. Love that we are recording it to archive for future and do not need to take time for making notes.

Sandy, 6 lessons with Wes

Excellent Instructor

Wes Is an excellent instructor and we reviewed the basics of Photoshop to get me to More of an intermediate level for my job, I would highly recommend them for anyone who wants to learn Photoshop

Paul, 3 lessons with Wes

Great man!

Wes is definitely what I’m looking for in a teacher. His extensive background will definitely help my interests in photography and videography. I threw a lot on him in the first meeting and he was able to throw back a game plan within seconds. I am a novice photographer, and Wes is able to explain any detail or question I have. Even if you are advanced in photography or film making, you will find that meeting with Wes is super rewarding.

Excellent tutor, with expertise and a true gift for teaching

We worked on a mosaic in Photoshop. Wes made it seem easy, which it was not - prior to my lesson! Wes has great interpersonal skills as a teacher, as well as terrific Photoshop expertise.
