About Dan

I have worked the last 5 years managing the Photo and Video department on board numerous cruise lines, but mainly Holland America Line. In my time there, I have had to train multiple staff members as either photographers or videographers, as well as customer service and sales methods working in the photo gallery. I have a bachelors degree in Photography and Media Arts.

I have recently moved to New York with my wife who I met working on ships. I am still passionate about photography and have various freelance contacts that enable me to keep a foot in the industry.

I would be willing to help anyone ranging from the basics of learning the mechanics of their camera, through to a variety of advanced multi light studio set ups, all the way through to mastering Photoshop for post production/compositing/image manipulation.

For the videographers out there, I am fully versed in Final Cut Pro, and can cover all aspects of shooting through to editing the final production.

I can help you with Adobe Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, Photography, Studio Lighting, etc.

I specialize in easy going, fun, interactive tutoring with a solid mixture of hands on learning as well as theory.

Adobe Photoshop

I managed the photo and video department for the last 5 years on various cruise lines. I ran a team of 6 photographers and videographers. I'm extremely proficient in Photoshop in terms of retouching, color correction, compositing, digital manipulation, actions and much more.
I'm also fluent in Final Cut Pro for video production and possess expertise in studio lighting.

Photography

I have a bachelors degree in Photography & Media Arts

I have worked as a photographer and videographer for the last 5 years onboard cruise lines, with the last 4 years of the 5 as manager of the department.

I have had to train over 20 people as either photographers, videographers, or printers (advanced use of photoshop)

Video Production

I have a bachelor's degree in Photography & Media Arts, a large part of which was video production.

I have industry experience working as the sole videographer onboard various cruise lines, where I was responsible for shooting live shows, onboard events, to shore excursions, and more. Shooting on location, and indoors using a range of lighting methods.

I am fluent in Final Cut Pro and was responsible for everything from shooting, to editing, to the final product delivered to the customers.

I went on to manage the photo and video department, and in 3 years in this role, had to train a number of videographers in the mechanics of their cameras, how to shoot various styles - documentary, narrative, live concerts etc, and how to edit the footage to produce the final product for each brief.
