About Aaron

I have more than 18 years of experience in art directing, graphic design, and photography. Recently I resigned from my position as an art director in pursuit of other interests in life.

My past experience focused on public health communication for major government agencies such as CDC, DOJ, and NIH, just to name a few. I supervised and worked with the design team to create the best possible products for our clients.

I have extensive experience with Adobe Indesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and had received numerous awards throughout my career.

In addition, I am also an expert in studio portrait lighting, landscape photography, and post processing.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe InDesign

I’ve been working in the graphic design field for 18 years. Adobe InDesign is the main program I use everyday.

Graphic Design

I’ve been working in the graphic design field for 18 years. I have a B.A. degree in Visual Arts from University of Maryland Baltimore County and an A.A.S. degree in Communication Design from Northern Virginia Community College. I received many graphic design and photography awards throughout my career. Recently I resigned from my position as an art director in pursuit of other interests in life. I'm highly technical in graphic design, photography, equipment and software.

Photography

I received training and credits in traditional 35mm and medium format photography included film processing in the dark room environment before earning my Associate in Applied Science Degree, Magna Cum Laude, in Communication Design at Northern Virginia Community College.

In my last 18 years working at the graphic design studio. I had art directed many photo shoots and worked with many professional photographers. Inside the studio, I had also conducted many photo shoots using professional lighting equipment include taking over 100 professional studio portraits for company executives and other product shots to be used in publication and web designs.

Recently I have started a photography Meetup group called PhotoTalkDC to share my photography knowledge with others. For the first meeting, I have written a simple, easy to understand, handout for our beginner members. You can view this handout at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3PCEYAtewB5dTRsbV83MXloNGc/view?usp=sharing

In addition, I am also an expert in infrared photography and post processing using Adobe Photoshop or DXO OpticsPro.

I love teaching and sharing my knowledge and I believe my training, experience, and skills in photography will qualify me for teaching this subject. Thank you very much.
