About Shaun

A photographer by passion and by trade, I am well versed in all manners of photography, Photoshop, Lightroom, and digital workflow. I am a skilled architectural and industrial photographer as well as a teacher and photo editor. I consider myself to be patient and easy going and tailor my teaching approach to match the student(s). I am comfortable in individual as well as group settings depending on the desired course of learning.

My education is in mechanical engineering and I worked as an engineer for several years while continually becoming proficient in my photographic skills. After an army deployment in 2006, I made the official leap to my new profession. As well as starting my own photography business, I have also worked in pro-photo labs doing editing, and taught basic photography for many years. I currently consider my primary job being a stay at home parent and manage my work based on the demands of that schedule. I welcome any questions you might have and I look forward to hearing from you!

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 Lightroom

I made the transition to Lightroom as a complete workflow process for my photography in 2009 and it has been integral to my ability to perform my work efficiently and effectively. In my group based classes I have taught, often I use Lightoom as an example of workflow and mass image organization. I provide individual students with examples on its effectiveness and ease of use. I am well versed in the products use as an all encompassing photographic tool.

Adobe Photoshop

I have over 10 years of experience in Adobe Photoshop. As a professional photographer, Photoshop is my main tool for editing. I use it as well as Adobe Lightroom. In the classes I have taught, Photoshop and Photoshop Elements are key components. Additionally, when I worked in a Pro-Photo lab, one of my additional duties was image editing and retouching. I am an active member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals andhave been listed as a feature photographer in their national magazine. I am comfortable teaching basic system features through advanced user functions.

Photography

I have been a photographer professionally for over 7 years but have been using cameras since middle school. I shoot in digital and on film and can cover every aspect of photography. I have created several different class structures to fit differing skill levels and have been teaching photography for 4 years. I can teach in individual as well as group settings. I guarantee that you will come away feeling like a stronger photographer when you take a class with me!
