About Ron

I am an experienced user of Adobe Photoshop since 1993 in the printing and publishing field. I have trained several co-workers as team leader in several large pre-press color departments in New York and Ohio. I have an extensive background in working with both film and digital cameras, and I enjoy teaching others how to use the latest technology now available with digital photography and Adobe Photoshop.

I keep abreast of the latest software available through online and seminar training, and I help train my co-workers, as photo editor of several large horticultural catalogs. My work experience of teaching others and love of photography go back many years to my dad who was a Marine photographer in World War II, and later a printing press room foreman.

I hope to pass on this varied knowledge through tutoring and training others.

As a professional photographer with a four year degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology, I have a great technical background in photography. While I don't claim to be the most artistic photographer, I do claim to know the materials and processes of photography. This is especially helpful in training and tutoring others to my proficiency level.

I have owned and used a Macintosh computer since 1993 at home and used the same Mac brand at my work since that same time. I have worked as a pre-press technician for the leading color separation company in Buffalo, NY and have the skill set to teach someone the ins and outs of good color correction using the Adobe Bridge and Photoshop software on a Mac.

I would be glad to share my 38 years of experience in commercial photography and printing, as well as my Macintosh computer skills in Adobe Photoshop. Please contact me for a free consultation appointment to get started scheduling your lessons.

When I bought Photoshop, and realized it was not something I could navigate through and learn, I began to search for tutors and classes online. I was excited when I found Ron Tubbs because of his extensive knowledge of Photoshop and close location. He was totally accommodating to me as far as the needs I had. He arranged to meet at the local library, he brought his laptop for the lessons and was very flexible with the content that I wanted to learn. His has a comprehensive knowledge of the program and was patient and thorough in his teaching style. I highly recommend Ron if you need Photoshop training!

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 have used Photoshop on a computer since 1993 in my professional career as a pre-press scanner operator and currently as a photo editor. My experiences in color correction would translate well into tutoring others to color correct images easily and with confidence.
I have worked for well known photographers and on many different types of photography and artwork to reproduce it correctly for printing. Photoshop Elements incorporates many of these tools that started out originally only in Photoshop programs.

Macintosh

I purchased a Macintosh computer in 1993, and have also used one at my work since then also. I edit photos in Adobe Photoshop as a color separation specialist on the Mac Pro tower. As a photo editor at Gardens Alive! I use Photoshop extensively in my daily work. I am in charge of four Macintosh computers at my work including software updates, and troubleshooting.

Photography

I have a four year degree in Professional Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1977. I also took a three day refresher course on digital photography in 1997 at RIT. My commercial work since 1977 has involved capturing and scanning photographic film with high end drum scanners as well. I am now the photo editor for Gardens Alive! and have been for the last seven years.
