About Jay


Bio

I'm a commercial photographer with extensive experience in many types of photography, from product to aerials to portraits. I also do a great deal of photo retouching, including work for a large national retailer. I love to show others how to excel at photography and/or Photoshop. I especially enjoy teaching how to do things more efficiently, such as taking advantage of the many keyboard shortcuts available in Photoshop. There's nothing I enjoy more than the thrill of helping someone else...

I have fifteen years experience in Photoshop. I do retouching for several large, national clients, including a well-known national retailer. My expertise in Photoshop is primarily related to retouching photography, as opposed to creating original works. I love sharing my knowledge, and especially enjoy showing others how to work efficiently with shortcuts, actions, etc.

Thanks! It's always fun to work with someone who wants to learn!

Fantastic Teacher

Jay is truly a fantastic teacher! He has taught me all about product photography. I'm such a novice and he made me feel very comfortable with a camera in such a short amount of time. He is very patient and at the same time is excited to help you learn. I highly recommend him!

Very Capable

I thought I knew Adobe Photoshop CS5 and have used it extensively for over 5 years until Jay showed up. He has a complete understanding of this system and can perform absolute magic! Do not hesitate to hire him if you are serious about wanting a professional, high end product. He is courteous, patient, professional, knowledgeable, and timely. His services will be in great demand. Highly recommended.
