Hello, I am a Certified, Professional Master Photographer and have been working in the photography field for over 30 years. I have expert level skills in commercial product/portrait photography. In addition I have master level skills in Photoshop, retouching and creating fine art composites. The creative power of Photoshop can be intimidating and hard to learn but I very much enjoy sharing my knowledge and skill with adults and youth who are new to digital imaging. For the last two years I have been teaching Photoshop classes both in a group setting as well as private individual lessons. Its been my experience that private tutoring in Photoshop yields a greater understanding, most often, techniques need to be explained and demonstrated a few times.
I have raised 5 children and enjoy spending time with my grandson and our huge puppy Pearl, a Great Pyrenees! Sharing my creative talents with the next generation of digital artists is extremely rewarding especially when they create a new piece of art with the skills I teach them, the smiles and sense of accomplishment are rewarding for both student and teacher.

I have been Michigan's Professional Photographer of the Year twice 2012, 2014, I have been Photoshop Master Artist of the Year 2017 and International Diamond Photographer of the Year in 2018, I am very proud of that accomplishment. I continue my education by taking classes myself annually, technology is always changing and staying current is of utmost importance. I studied Fine Art at EMU and have continued to study under some of America's most outstanding photographers. I received my Master Photographer Degree in 2013. Teaching has become a passion in the latter part of my career, I have much to share.

I love watching the light bulb go on when a student masters something in camera or when using Photoshop. I don't mind going over a technique as many times as needed, sometimes technology is just confusing, no one gets that more than me! Don't be shy, if you need help with learning how to use yo
