I have peer tutored college students in various Art subjects including Art History, Art Appreciation, Photography, and Photoshop. As an independent contractor I have taught drawing at eight different elementary schools around Bakersfield, CA for a private after school program.

Originally from England, I have lived almost half my life in America now. I have peer tutored college students in various Art subjects including Art History, Art Appreciation, Photography, and Photoshop. As an independent contractor I have taught drawing at eight different elementary schools around Bakersfield, CA for a private after school program. I had a small studio for three years where I provided photography and filmmaking services and workshops for the community.

I have a dual focus Art Associates degree where I studied traditional studio art techniques, digital graphic design, and advanced photography. My Bachelors degree major is in Multidisciplinary Studio Arts, and my minor is in Communications - Digital Media Production. In addition to my collegiate training I have over two decades of personal photography and film making experience creating animations, short films, a feature length movie, and experimental interactive DVD projects.

I love Art. I think that Art and the creative problem solving skills it fosters is useful to anyone, in any field. I love making, creating, exploring new technologies like laser cutting, 3D printing, CGI, and whatever comes next.

Subjects

Art

Adobe Illustrator,

Adobe Illustrator

I have been using the Adobe Master Suite of programs for personal use for several years before studying graphic design, digital illustration, photo restoration and manipulation more formally at Bakersfield College, and California State University Bakersfield. I have a dual focus AA degree in Digital and Studio arts, as well as a Multidisciplinary BA degree.
Adobe Photoshop,

Adobe Photoshop

I have been working in Photoshop for many years, initially I was self taught, but then I went to college where I studied Graphic Design, Photography, and Digital Illustration. I received a dual focus AA degree from Bakersfield College before gaining my BA from California State University Bakersfield in Multidisciplinary Studio Arts.
Drawing,

Drawing

I have been drawing for over 30 years. I have studied art formally for the last five years, including drawing, painting, screen printing, graphic design and many more, most of which require preliminary drawings. I have taught drawing in an elementary after school program. I have drawn everything from gestural sketches, to highly detailed charcoal portraits, cartoons, storyboards, comic books, and caricatures.
Film,

Film

My earliest memories are of watching films. I have collected, watched and studied movies for over three decades. I have taken multiple film history and theory courses on my way to getting my Bachelors degree, including genre specific studies, gender, and cultural considerations as they relate to film writing and production.
Photography,

Photography

I began taking pictures as a child on family vacations and events. I practiced for years before studying formally in college. I took several classes in basic to advanced photography learning techniques from traditional portraiture, to trick photography, HDR, high speed, long exposure et al.
Video Production

Video Production

I began shooting videos at family events more than 20 years ago. Since then I have filmed short narrative films with friends, filmed live concerts, created experimental interactive DVD projects, and independent short and feature length films. I have worked with SD, HD, 4K, analog and digital cameras and camcorders, DSLR is my current preference because of the balance of cost and features with interchangeable lenses.

Wonder calm & Patient Teacher - rotoscoping

Barry was very helpful and patient. He helped me with rotoscoping and the issue I had understanding mask and tracking. He is very patient and explains not only very well but patiently too. I wasn't nervous about asking questions and Barry made sure I understood everything before the lesson ended. Thank you Barry

Barry is great!

Barry listened to me and answered all of my questions AND also persevered through my skepticism and showed me really cool stuff that I would've never known about without his patience. Thank you, Barry!

Above and Beyond What I Expected - I 100% Recommend Barry!

Barry is a really easy person to get along with, he is knowledgeable, patient, and understands that a task does not just have one way or method to be done. I learnt MUCH more than I thought I would and have applied the tricks and tips Barry explained to me in my project this week. I HIGHLY recommend taking lessons with Barry, thanks Barry. Simon

Life Saver

Barry in a very short time showed me how to use Photo Shop in order to upload graphics to a website. I couldn't have progressed with the distribution of my film without his help. He was patient and detailed in his explanation and I look forward to working with him again.

Barry was excellent, he calmed my trepidation regarding the subject matter. He was extremely knowledgeable and able to convey an understanding of the terms and he came prepared with a lesson plan for our first lesson. Truly an awesome instructor.
