About David

I started with black and white film photography in High school which I continued into college. I then became a senior staff photographer for my school’s newspaper at James Madison University. At this position I covered an extremely large array of assignments. I learned from first-hand experience how to handle myself as a photographer in all situations of light, weather, location and subject matter. I photographed everything from animals, politicians, performances, portraits, spot news, and my favorite subject sports. I implemented a recording-system for the use of the newspaper’s equipment by the photographers which is still in use today. While at JMU I won a first place in spot news award in the Virginia Press Association collegiate photo contest and a first place in spot news award in the Society of Professional Journalists Region 2 Mark of Excellence Award.

I have been using photoshop for 12 years, ever since version "photoshop 7". I am highly skilled in photo retouching, color correction, and photo manipulation. I have been a professional photographer for almost a decade as well.

I can teach photoshop on a beginner and intermediate level. Photoshop is a very intense program and as I have not mastered everything, I do consider myself an expert on a lot of it's capabilities. Depending on your needs and desires I should be able to get you familiar with the program for all your photo editing needs. I can provide a laptop with Photoshop cs3 for teaching

I have been playing poker since 2003. I've learned how to teach the essential basic elements of the game to absolute beginners to ensure they can handle themselves at the table. I can provide cards and poker chips.
