About Rebecca

Experienced classroom and private instructor on all things computer and photography. Adobe Certified Expert ~ Lightroom. In-person within 15 miles of Beaverton OR or online anywhere.

I am passionate about a lot of things. People. Technology. Being of service. Laughing a lot. Photography. Empowering others to do what they want. Bringing out the best in others. Having fun. Learning. Leaving a legacy. Telling stories with photos.

Hence, Pixelegacy – a merging of all of these passions that enables me to bring a joy to my work – a joy that shows in the results, and the relationships I’m thrilled to have built with hundreds of clients over the years.

I’d love to show you how to create and awesome image or photo project. I can also help you with those gnarly spreadsheets, Word, PowerPoint, your e-newsletter or Facebook page – just about anything digital.

Experience and Associations: Photographer since childhood, technology trainer (all things computer – file management, word processing, spreadsheets, whatever) since 1995, teaching digital photography since 2003. Organizer for Portland/Vancouver Photography Meetup group and Women Learning Photography Together Meetup group, Commissioner Beaverton Arts Commission. Instructor Newspace Center for Photography (Portland OR), Cascade Center of Photography (Bend OR), hundreds of private clients.

What I shoot: About anything that doesn’t shoot me back… Mostly I like to capture unusual things, or find unusual ways to capture usual things.

What I teach: All things computer (file management, word processing, spreadsheets, e-newsletters, social media) plus Lightroom, Picasa, how to use all makes and models of digital cameras (including smart phones, photography basics.

Who I teach: I’ve worked with technology users of all levels and professions, passionate amateur and professional photographers of all ages and all levels of experience. I specialize in beginners and intermediate users of all ages, especially women.

How I teach: I’m known for my patience, broad knowledge, empathy and ability to simplify complex concepts and tie them all together into something relevant to your needs. I’m also told that I make it fun! I’m honored that many clients have become good friends.

My own training: Although I’ve taken many classes and workshops, mostly I’m a stubborn, self taught, passionate geekette/photographer who soaks up as much as I can from using software, working my own website and newsletter, and (photographically speaking) studying others’ work, exposing myself to critique, shooting, messing with the shots, shooting more. I think it helps me feel my student’s pain all the more that I’ve figured out so much on my own.

Thanks for checking me out, I hope to hear from you.

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.

Rebecca was excellent! She helped me complete processes and correct hard drive data in ways that I could never have done without her assistance. I would without question, highly recommend her to anyone who is having any challenges with their Lightroom program!
