About Eric

Learning should be fun and rewarding for the student. I don't believe in overwhelming students with lots of information. I give you the fundamentals. From there, you will gain the confidence you need to explore and improve.

Since 2002, I have had the privilege of teaching hundreds of people in classrooms, workshops and through videos. Students enjoy the classes and tutoring I provide because I work with them to use Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Photoshop Elements according to their needs. Amateur photographers, surgeons, genealogists, real estate agents and artists of all sorts have been my students.

If you have professional experience, hire me to consult with specific techniques or problems in your production workflow. Maybe you have a nagging problem with banding, artifacts or need to customize Actions or Brushes. If you are restoring old photos, I can help you handle color and mold problems in your originals.

Teaching is something I do in addition to a full-time job as photo retoucher for my own company. I’ve served clients since 1999 as a photo retoucher. So that means that you’ll be getting an experienced teacher.

When it comes to Apple computers, I've been using them since the early 1980s when I was a student. I can help you get around with minor system, software and networking issues. These are things I deal with in my own day-to-day work.
