About Bob

I'm a professional freelance photographer and an Adobe Certified Instructor. I've tutored dozens of people in Lightroom and Photoshop and can quickly help you build your skills to develop a workflow that suits your needs. I have also taught groups of designers and photographers at the corporate level. I use Lightroom and Photoshop every day and have developed tricks and techniques that can save you hours of editing time and most importantly, make your images look amazing.

Lightroom's powerful cataloging capabilities can seem confusing at first. But I can teach you how to efficiently manage and batch-process your images to create a great looking portfolio. Photoshop is the natural complementary program for post production work and I have two decades of experience creating captivating images using it. I'm passionate about teaching aspiring photographers and would enjoy the opportunity to get you to the next level with these amazing tools.

Photography is my lifelong passion and I have a simplistic and fun approach to sharing my industry knowledge with photographers at all levels. We'll begin with setting goals to focus on the areas you'd like to improve upon. I will tailor a program to meet your skill level and areas of interest. You'll learn to strengthen your skills behind the camera with "active observation" techniques, and also build your digital darkroom capabilities to create captivating images.

In a couple of sessions, I will teach you how to improve your creative process and I'll load you up with tons of information and techniques to apply to your projects. My approach is fun and informative and I will work within your schedule and budget.

Beginner photographers and advanced amateurs are welcome to contact me and I guarantee that you will learn trend setting digital imaging techniques to make more compelling photographs that your family, friends and clients will admire.

Adobe InDesign

I've been using Adobe InDesign since it replaced Pagemaker in 2000. I served as a Design Manager for many years and led graphics production teams, including spearheading an InDesign training program.

Adobe Lightroom

I've been using Adobe Lightroom as the mainstay of my photography workflow since it's initial release. I am passionate about photo-editing and have taught dozens of students at every level to build their skills and develop more captivating images. There are powerful cataloging and editing features within Lightroom that every photographer should know about and I would enjoy helping you to enhance your creative toolkit.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been using Photoshop for more than 20 years as a professional photographer and designer. I led regular corporate-wide, web-based knowledge sharing sessions in Photoshop and other Adobe products to raise skill levels to cross-functional graphic design teams. I routinely teach Photoshop to individuals as one aspect of my freelance photography business. I am passionate about the limitless creative potential Photoshop offers and I enjoy exchanging techniques and ideas with like-minded people.

Photography

I have worked as a professional photographer for 20 years and have mastered Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. My clients range from corporations to kids and my goal is to deliver exceptional photography in every situation. My other passion is knowledge sharing. There's nothing more satisfying than learning and applying new creative techniques and I am energized by the exchange of information between creative minds. I have also taught groups of designers and photographers at the corporate level.
