About Chris

I am a passionate instructor that has created lessons for every age level. Currently, I am pursuing my degree in Mobile Development. I have a design/engineering background with over 10 years experience using Photoshop, AutoCAD, and photography. I worked for a major corporation that allowed me to create some of the most innovative products on the market.

I tutor in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, AutoCAD, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Photography, & General Computer Information.

Currently I work with Photoshop, Illustrator, Javascript, HTML, CSS, JSON, API, Wireframes, and mock-ups to create mobile applications. My education at Full Sail University has given me a vast knowledge of information and experience.

I have enjoyed taking photographs for over 20 years. Portrait, landscape, and wedding photography are the main areas I have been involved with. Capturing moments of life in a photograph or a video is something that is beyond value. Taking photos is only one part of the process. You can also make them more appealing by using different techniques in Photoshop or Lightroom.

I look forward to tutoring you. Please feel free to leave positive feedback and I will do my very best to respond to you as soon as possible.

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 learned how to use Adobe Illustrator during college at Full Sail University. Illustrator allowed me to create mock-ups for web pages as well as mobile applications. I also used the software to create company logos and application icons.

Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop is such a wonderful program that allows you to do so many things. I have used Photoshop for the past 10 years in many different aspects. I have been able to take the photos that I have shot and edit them to create the effect I am looking for. For some of my most recent projects I have used Photoshop to create web sites as well as mobile apps.

AutoCAD

I have a Computer Aided Drafting & Design Degree which included 2 years of AutoCAD training. I also have worked for several companies the past 13 years where I have used AutoCAD and other AutoDesk products on a daily basis. I also have several certificates to show that I have also completed training with these design products.

General Computer

Since I was a young teenager I have been working and using computers. I also understand the frustration someone feels when trying to understand something and not knowing where to start. I am a freelance Mobile Developer where my job is to design web pages and I am constantly on my computer.

Photography

I have six years of experience in the field of Photography. My experience includes taking professional portraits of families, nature and weddings. My photography experience began in 1996, where I trained and worked alongside a professional photographer for four years. This experience taught me the necessary techniques, lighting and applications needed to achieve professional quality pictures.

I am skilled in Adobe Photoshop, Portrait Pro, Aperture, iPhoto and Adobe Lightroom. My 10 years of experience in Adobe Photoshop includes editing, retouching, restoring, cropping and special effects. I have six years of experience in Portrait Pro, Aperture, iPhoto and Adobe Lightroom, including Lynda.com training in the updated versions of these software programs.

I have provided individualized, hands-on tutoring sessions in Adobe Photoshop and Portrait Pro for adults in photo editing and retouching skills. I have also taught adults how to become familiar with and utilize the tools and layers within Photoshop. My approach in teaching photography is to first discuss the concepts being taught, followed by a modeled step-by-step example and finally the opportunity for my learners to practice these new skills. I believe that learning occurs best through an interactive, hands-on approach.

Video Production

I have an extensive knowledge of Adobe Premiere Pro, iMovie, Pinnacle Studio, and Adobe Audition. I have trained through Lynda.com in iMovie and Premiere Pro.

I have produced and uploaded several movies using iMovie and Premiere Pro. While obtaining my Bachelor's degree at Full Sail University I have created various videos that incorporated lighting techniques, professional audio, custom effects, and high quality video. My experience also includes four years of videography, while training under a professional videographer.

I am skilled in creating storyboards, editing video, creating custom edits, and adding professional audio to make a high end product.
