About Peter

I started my work life as a lawyer in the entertainment industry. Then I caught the creative bug and now I am an award-winning, critically acclaimed professional photographer. In the last three years, I have received ten awards for my photography in various shows and exhibitions. I have worked as a portrait and headshot photographer for over 12 years and a commercial and architectural photographer for over nine years. My photos have been displayed on websites, at trade shows, in print advertisements and catalogs and on billboards. My fine art photography has been shown in art galleries and other public spaces around New York and New Jersey.

Whether you are experienced or just starting out, I can show you how to take great photos and get the most out of your camera equipment. I will teach you which camera settings to use in which situations and how to create compelling pictures that you can be proud of. I teach people and portrait photography, landscape and still life photography and even commercial photography techniques used in advertising.

I am also highly skilled in using Photoshop. I can teach you how to edit your photos like the pros do and create amazing images that will get people's attention and impress your friends. We'll discuss retouching and editing techniques as well as how to resize your photos for posting on-line or making prints. I'll show you how to use the clone stamp tool and healing brushes to clean up your images and how to use adjustment layers to really make the photos pop! And finally, we'll go over how to prepare them for printing.

I can't wait to meet you so we can get started!

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 used Photoshop nearly everyday for 10 years in real world settings - for commercial & advertising photography for big corporate clients, for retouching portraits and headshots for models, actors and executives, and for creating beautiful fine art images for sale in art galleries and shows and exhibitions. I don't teach theory - I teach practical skills that get results. And I do it in simple, basic steps that anyone of any skill level can follow.

Film

I worked as an attorney and business executive in Hollywood for nearly 12 years. I negotiated deals and worked on numerous film and television projects. Between 2001 and 2009 I wrote, produced, shot, directed and edited six short films and several short digital video projects. I have experience lighting productions, recording audio, operating HD cameras, and editing video and film productions. I have even composed music for my films.

Graphic Design

I am proficient in Photoshop and InDesign. I have created logos and brochures for clients and my own businesses. I have designed six websites and do a monthly newsletter for my own photography business.

Photography

I am an accomplished professional photographer. I shoot portraits and head shots, commercial and architectural and also work as a fine art photographer. I have studied photographic technique for over 12 years. In the last three years, I have received ten awards for my photography in various shows and exhibitions. As a commercial photographer, my photos have been displayed on websites, at trade shows, in print advertisements and catalogs and even on billboards. I have photographed hundreds of people for portraits and headshots, working with professional models and corporate executives. I can help you get the most out of your photographic equipment as well as teach you technique that will make your photos stand out from the crowd.
