West Chester University (Secondary Education)
I have been a professional photographer for over 35 years. Prior to that, I was a secondary education teacher and camera department manager. I have been operating a full-time photography studio since 1977 specializing in portraits and weddings. For the last 10 years I have gained substantial knowledge in digital photography and the use of Adobe Photoshop for post-capture image enhancements and retouching. I have instructed students from beginners to advanced amateurs and even beginning professionals in camera, composition and lighting techniques. I have also helped students with basic to advanced Photoshop instruction including the use of layers, blending modes, adjustments and special effect digital filters. At this point in my career, I am reducing my studio workload and would like to spend more time instructing the people that are serious about acquiring and producing top quality photographic images.

Ronald was excellent to work with. From emailing/scheduling the appointment to teaching me what I wanted to learn. He was very patient and willing to repeat things to make sure I understood them. He also gave me additional tips that I could use. I can't wait to put use what I learned. I would definitely recommend Ronald as a tutor!
