About Christopher

I know how frustrating it can be to not be able to translate your vision into the camera. I certainly can assist you on how to get the most out of your Camera. Your lessons can also include post processing using Lightroom (I also do extensive training in Capture One) to Manage, Develop and Export your Images, as well as using Photoshop to retouch and finish your image. Instructions focus on how to use your digital camera to take quality pictures. . . 95% of my training is camera agnostic so it doesn’t matter which camera is used but just as an FYI; I shoot with Nikon D810, D800 & D4s camera bodies.

The one-on-one lessons are tailored to the individual and designed to meet your specific goals and show you how to use your camera to get the biggest bang for the buck out of your photography. Each lesson is designed to your skill level and can be as shallow or in depth as you like. I bring you 15+ years of professional photography experience and am well versed in working with all levels of students. Learn how-to: use your camera as an image making tool and how-to create pictures you will be proud to share with your friends and family!


I have 15+ Years working with Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Premier. I have an MBA in Arts Management, and 5+ years' training ALL Levels of students.

I also have 20+ years' working with and training in technology using HTML, CSS, Visual Studio & Adobe Dreamweaver.

Sessions are not just a rehashing of the user manual, each section of the class is designed to explain why you need to know each part, and how it applies to making you a better photographer.

YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO USE YOUR CAMERA AND TAKE BETTER IMAGES!

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.

Photography

I have 40+ years of Photography experience and have been working exclusively as a Professional Photographer for the past 10 years. While most of my income comes directly from my photography I have been offering my services as a tutor for the past 5+ years teaching Photography, Lightroom, and Photoshop. Samples of my photography are available upon request. I have an MBA in Arts Management.

Kind, clear and patient plus extremely knowledgable teacher

I've only had one lesson with Christopher so far ... many more to come. He has answered all my questions, takes his time, no frustrations, very patient and has a clear plan for the best way to learn photography. Can't recommend him enough.
