About Alan

I am a New York area event and portrait photographer with a background in documentary photography and photojournalism. My diverse clientele includes arts institutions, colleges and the financial sector.

I studied at the International Center for Photography, and was a darkroom instructor and teaching assistant there as well. I got my start in the industry as a photographer's assistant, and logged many in the darkroom as a black & white printer. Soon after, I began shooting freelance fashion and editorial assignments. After working with film for many years, I began experimenting with digital cameras in the late 1990’s. By 2004, I had transitioned fully to digital imaging and haven’t looked back.




I can help with Adobe Lightroom, Macintosh, Apple iPad and iPhone photography apps.

I want to share my love of photography with anyone who's interested. I've always felt that knowledge is meant to be passed on, and there are no "secrets" to success. I am happy to share my 30 years (plus) of knowledge gained from experience.

I'm happy to speak with students about their interests and passions.

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 have been using Adobe Lightroom extensively for image processing since Lightroom version 2 (back in 2008). As a professional event photographer, I have processed tens of thousands of images with this amazing software. With the release of each new version, new features and capabilities are added, and it's crucial to master the full capability of this workhorse application. I am excited to share what I have learned over the years with enthusiastic students.

Macintosh

I have been a Mac user since 1995. I have taken courses in computer graphics, and as a professional photographer have learned the ins and outs of all major Mac products including desktops, laptops and mobile devices.
In addition, I offer my Mac instruction skills to family and friends and have done so for years. This includes buying advice, software installation, user tips, email setup, use of iPhones and iPads and troubleshooting. I like to work hands on with each individual and help them achieve a full user experience with their computers.

Photography

I've been a working professional photographer for over 25 years. I studied at the International Center of Photography in New York and was a substitute instructor and darkroom supervisor there as well.
I also took photography courses at the George Eastman House, Maine Photographic Workshops and Apeiron Workshops. I've always loved sharing my passion and love for photography with others who share my enthusiasm.
