About David

With over 25 years as a commercial/advertising photographer, I posses a vast knowledge of diverse areas of photography. My career has spanned the transition from analog photography to digital. I am as experienced in view cameras, film, and dark room as I am in Photoshop, output, and the latest digital trends.

I have experience teaching in the classroom as well as private lessons. I have a degree in Professional Photography from the Rochester Institute of Technology and have attended the Ansel Adams Gallery Workshop in Yosemite, CA as well at the Maine Photographic Workshop. I am also an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop.

Whatever your interest may be in photography and or Photoshop, I would be more than happy to teach you.
