About Philip

I have extensive design and photography experience. I am fully conversant in Photoshop from version 3 to version CS6, and Adobe Illustrator version 8 to version CS6.

I also have extensive experience as an award winning photographer, published in magazines and newspapers. I have a design degree from Pierce College and a Certificate of Photography from the University of Washington.

I've edited several books and more than 50 magazine issues with PageMaker and InDesign. In addition, I've taught and tutored both Illustrator and Photoshop in the corporate and educational fields.

I am an eager and fun instructor, and love to share my enthusiasm.

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.

Adobe Illustrator

I've used Adobe Illustrator for graphic design and over a dozen years. I started with Illustrator 8.0 and use the most recent version of Illustrator CS6 20-30 hours per week.

Adobe InDesign

I started using PageMaker in 1990, and transitioned to InDesign in 2002. I have edited approximately 50 magazine issues, as well as industry reports utilizing InDesign.

Adobe Photoshop

I've used Photoshop for graphic design and photography for over two decades (since version 3.0 way back then layers were first introduced!)

I have a full time job as a graphic designer (since 1999) and do photography as a side job. So I use the most recent version Photoshop at least 30-40 hours each week.

I utilize Photoshop both for photo optimization and for creative projects utilizing photos.

Chess

My OTB rating hovers around the low expert high class A level. I've played several thousand tournament games, coached students, edited four chess books, and almost 50 issues of NW Chess magazine. I'm a fun instructor with a firm grasp of the game.

Desktop Publishing

I have extensive experience in PageMaker and InDesign, having edited/layed out 50+ magazine issues, multiple catalogs and legislative reports as well as several books. In addition I have a digital design degree, and have also won awards in magazine layout.

Photography

I’ve been interested in photography for the past twenty years, starting when I worked for various magazines which required in house photography. I gladly jumped to digital cameras as soon as they hit the market, preferring to "dump the darkroom" and put my Photoshop experience (version 3 to CS6) to use.

I’ve had extensive experience in event, fine art, portrait, product, sports, senior and wedding photography. I have the very highest quality lighting equipment and Canon cameras.

I have a design degree from Pierce College, and a Photography Certificate from the University of Washington.

I've been published in various magazines and newspapers throughout the country.

Some of my photography awards are:

Photography Awards:
1996 2nd place Chess Journalists of America magazine cover photo of the year
2005 National Association of Photoshop Professionals Editors Choice award.
2005 Honorable Mention Washington Trails Association
2006 2nd & 4th place “Computer Art” Washington Photographers Exhibition
