About Richard

Hello! I am an experienced Digital Retoucher whose previous clients include Nabisco, Haagen Dazs, Ralph Lauren, Loreal Paris, Clorox, Abercrombie & Fitch, and more. I am also a trusted instructor with previous educational experience at New York area colleges. I have been teaching Advanced Photoshop, Color Theory and Photography at City Tech Brooklyn since the Fall of 2008. I have also been certified as a "Master Tutor" of Graphic Arts.

The following is a Question and Answer Session about my Tutoring and my teaching experiences. I believe you will get to know who I am and my passion for teaching!


1) Why did you decide to become a tutor or teacher?
I have always enjoyed teaching others. When raising my two children there was nothing more rewarding than seeing them grasp and apply new skills. That same concept applies here.

2) What’s the biggest issue facing professionals in your field?
The biggest issue facing professionals in my field is the demand placed on individuals. Mastering one aspect is not enough anymore.

3) Who is one of the most memorable students you’ve worked with and why?
There were many memorable students! One student named Esrar in my Photography class wrote to me thanking me for all he learned in my class. He attached files that he was doing for E Commerce. He had every reason to be proud of his work. He is one of many success stories!

4) Who would you most like to have dinner with in your field?
Well, I did have dinner with him in 1990, Dr. Robert Long. Dr. long was the Chief Engineer at Quantel, inventors of the Graphic Paintbox. We discussed the future of electronic retouching and various hardware/ software solutions. Amazing discussion.

5) What is the biggest misconception about the skills you tutor?
We live in an age of instant gratification! Students frequently think that they can master the art of retouching and Photoshop in a few months, it takes years to be truly proficient!

6) If you could give one piece of professional advice to someone in college or just starting their career, what would it be?
Listen..learn to LISTEN!
