About Eric

For over 30 years I have been working in various aspects of the photo industry, my main focus being weddings and events, and travel photography. I love learning, and I enjoy sharing that knowledge. It is really important that we continue learning to keep up with all the technological advances in our industry.

I am an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop Lightroom, and enjoy helping others discover the power of that software. I have taught Lightroom to groups of professional photographers as well as amateurs. My home studio is set up to accommodate individual students and small groups. What I have found effective for students at a distance is to do one session at their location, and then subsequent instruction via remote internet sessions where I can view their computer.

Once I find out your skill level and your objectives, I can tailor our sessions to help you achieve those goals. Whether you are just starting photography as a hobby, or are a pro with specific questions, I will help you move in the right direction.

I am a former member of the Steering Committee of the New York Chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers, and currently serve on the Board of Directors of the Westchester Professional Photographers Association.

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 Lightroom

I am an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop Lightroom, and have been using the program since the first beta version in 2006. Since that time, I have been teaching Lightroom to amateur and professional photographers in classroom situations at conferences, small groups, and private lessons, both in-person and online.

It is an amazing program that has become the industry standard for managing and processing photos, and I love showing people how to use it to improve their own workflow.

Photography

I have been involved with photography since junior high school, and photographed my first wedding 34 years ago. Since then I have photographed hundreds of events and learned how to work in all kinds of situations.

I have been doing travel photography for over 30 years, and am currently represented by Getty Images and Viesti Associates. My travel work portfolio is available upon request. I love talking shop, and enjoying sharing my knowledge with others, whether we are talking lighting, business, or digital asset management.

I spoke at the state convention of the Professional Photographers' Society of New York State, and to many of that organization's regional chapters, as well as running small classes in my home studio for amateurs and pros.

Tailored to just what I needed! — Eric was patient, and listened to what I wanted to accomplish. I had thought I would be able to do several things and was having trouble figuring out how to do what I wanted. He showed me how to get those things done in an orderly work flow and also suggested ways for me to gain control over a Lightroom catalogue that had become unruly and disorganized. I feel that I am on a good track now to ...
