Texas A&M Commerce - half way done getting masters (MEd)
Hi, my name is Jim. I am the father of three sons and owner of a photography studio. I love being behind the camera to capture the decisive moments and some of those moments are of my sons.
I continue to shoot model portfolios, fashion, weddings and family portraiture, commercial accounts, event photography and more. My true dreams are realized when I pick up my camera.
I teach beginning and advanced Photoshop along with other digital imaging programs part-time at the Dallas County Community College District and former teacher of A&M Commerce.
I am a lighting specialist with a wealth of knowledge and expertise, consulting others on such issues as lighting solutions, color calibration, and digital retouch. I cultivate my abilities in web and graphic design through further education.
I also conduct personal workshops and consult on lighting and digital workflow solutions.
I capture images all over the country and abroad. I am currently working on a coffee table book project about shop houses in Singapore. Hi, my name is Jim.

Jimmy was very pleasant to work with. He was on time for our session and is very knowledgeable about photography in general, lighting, and post-processing. Photography is such a huge subject, and we only met for 2 hours--so if I could do-over our first meeting together, I would do the following:
1-Prepare a list of topics you, the student, feel knowledgeable about so that Jimmy knows what level to teach to;
2-Clearly communicate each area you would like instruction on--by email--before your session;
3-Specify which equipment you're working with, including which type of computer (Mac/PC) and which photo editing software (Photoshop Elements vs Photoshop);
4-Specify beforehand how much time you would like to spend on tutoring so Jimmy knows how much time to allocate to each topic;
5-Begin your tutoring session with your questions written down and in front of you;
I think Jimmy's a good tutor, and I would work with him again in the future.
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.
I have used InDesign for the the past 5 years. I teach InDesign at the local Community College here in the Dallas, TX area. Teaching student on how to design flyers, Newsletters, and brochures. One of my favorite assignment is having the students layout the Dallas Morning News front page. Using InDesign you bring in images from Photoshop and graphic from Illustrator and layout all that in InDesign program along with the copy form word. I use In Design for designing brochures and flyers. Part of the college curriculum is to have something printed while they are at school. So the student have to do real layout work for our paper. I use Photoshop for images, Illustrator for graphic, word for the documents and InDesign program to take all these elements and layout a great newsletter, and magazine. InDesign is the melting pot where all of the text and graphic are all put together in one program.
I have been using and teaching Photoshop for the past 20 years or so. I have a degree in BS from A&M Commerce (formerly ETSU). I also have an AA in digital Imaging Technology from East field College which I received 4 years ago. Prior to that I have used Photoshop in the field of photography and have train and helped photographers and business on how to use Photoshop effectively and efficiently.
I have been a freelance photographer for the last 25 years. I graduated from A&M Commerce formerly (ETSU). I do not use film much today but still enjoy making photographs while maintaining the passion of photography. I enjoy photographing people, places and things. I love different qualities of light while consulting others on such issues as lighting solutions, color calibration, and digital retouch. I continue to sharpen my abilities in web and graphic design through further education. I conduct personal workshops and consult on lighting and digital workflow solutions. I have captured images all over the country and abroad. Currently I am working on a coffee table book project about shop houses in Singapore. I have also worked as a medical photographer and shot a lot of commercial ads as well.
