About Scott

Hi there! I love to teach people how to use computers, particularly photography and video editing software.

I do freelance work in photography, videography, graphic design and manage communications for non-profit organizations.

With over a decade of experience with the Adobe Creative Suite and years of professional corporate work with Final Cut Pro, I can help you create great commercials, documentaries, YouTube shorts, web promotions and more. I can also help you remove blemishes and stray hair from your wedding photos, correct many lighting problems, and even remove Aunt May's accidental photobomb!

I created and maintained a profitable video department for a national publication for around seven years. I'm proud of the time I spent teaching our interns how to create award-winning videos that were so good, we hired them!

I am friendly, professional and patient. I love coming up with helpful metaphors for tricky concepts, and I can pull together a demonstration for anything you'd like to master.

Please contact me with your needs and availability, and we'll get started!

Education:
* Bachelor of Arts in TV and Video Communication from Madonna University, highest honors
* Certified Final Cut Pro v7, 2011, tested at the National Association of Broadcasters conference

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 Photoshop

I have been using Adobe Photoshop professionally for over a decade - first as a web designer for Compuware, then during my education at Madonna University, then as a professional wedding photographer and web designer. I used it every day during my eight years at Crain Communications as the director and editor of a daily news show - cropping, color correction, and graphics creation. I designed penguicon.org and ofsken.com from scratch using Photoshop and other Adobe suite products, and used Photoshop to create the graphics for the What is Penguicon? video I linked in my Video Production qualifications.

Photography

During my B.A. in TV/Video Comm, I passed out of photography, and I went straight to photography II due to my experience as a wedding and behind-the-scenes photographer. Along with 35mm and digital photography, I also have spent significant time in the dark room.

I am the head of marketing for the non-profit convention Penguicon. I did the weekend photography for the last convention, using a Canon 5d which we rented for the occasion, along with a pair of wide angle low light lenses.

I collect old cameras, as well.

Cheers!

Video Production

Besides my degree in TV/Video Comm, I was the founder of the Broadcast Club at my school, and helped others learn through that. At my job as Director and Editor for Crain Communications I won awards for the last three consecutive years, and trained all interns in our daily video production

I shot and edited my most recent project for the non-profit convention Penguicon, which can be found through their web site.
