About RA

I teach what I am doing every day and give my students my all. I'm a professional photographer doing both commercial and fine art work in New York City. I recently completed a five city book project working with another photographer where I shot with a circa 1980 film camera. I do a lot of urban/street photography both digitally and on film and have a great deal of studio experience. Additionally, I draw as part of my work and was a science undergraduate. I love to share my ten plus years of hands-on experience.

I am what is usually called a "power user" when it comes to Photoshop. I've tacked everything from removing writing written on human skin to removing/replacing backgrounds. I work with the program nearly every day along with Adobe Lightroom.

I've been doing photography since the era of film and I've worked with nearly every kind of camera. My background is heavily informed by the fine arts. I minored in drawing as an undergraduate, eventually going on for an MFA in painting. I took additional art history and continue to have a strong interest in that area, frequenting museums and galleries.

I am in NYC alternating long weekends, Friday-Monday.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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've been working with PS since 2005 and have tackled just about work-a-day and unusual problem you might encounter. I've also prepared files for black and white and color professional inkjet printing as well as profiling systems.

Art History

Undergraduate study in ancient art and history of theatre. MFA in painting from LSU with graduate study in the history of photography, Northern Painting and Italian Renaissance art.

Drawing

I have an MFA with honors in drawing/painting from Louisiana State, Baton Rouge, where I also taught drawing. I am currently mixing drawing and photography. I have studied illustration for theatre set design, human anatomy and taken countless life drawing sessions.

I've been in the photography field now for ten years, having just completed a major book project funded on Kickstarter. I currently am working free-lance for commercial work. And I am also an assistant to photographer Anne Nicolajsen.
