About Kirk

I am a Digital media Designer who works in many aspects of digital editing. My main focus is in Photoshop for the creation of Web graphics, video effects, print materials, photo editing, compositions and the list goes on.

I love to help people understand this software in a way that makes it easy to use. There is nothing more frustrating than having someone tell you how to use something but talk above your head when it comes to terminology. Since Photoshop has such a large learning curve, it is extremely important to me that people I am teaching understand it in the easiest way possible.

Creating Digital art is a very fun and rewarding experience, and since you are working with digital methods nothing can be ruined. If you make a mistake you back up and start again.

Also for the person who dabbles in photography, you can create some of the most beautiful pictures you have ever seen just by learning a few simple steps using this software.

So if you want to learn a new talent, or just help make those family pictures have a bit more pop, then this is the software you will want to master.

I will always take the time to make sure all lessons are fully understood and that the student will always be able to reproduce their work time after time.
