About Rusty

I am an award-winning writer and photographer with five books published, two of which were self-published. I am a former Nikon School instructor and I believe I am an above-average teacher with more than 20 years of experience teaching photography, design, and technical subjects. I have competency in Photoshop, InDesign, and Lightroom as well as other graphic design programs. I enjoy helping people find new ways of developing their artistic talents using today's digital tools.
I like a one-on-one relationship with learners that allows me to tailor a specific curriculum that is task-based. That allows both the learner and the instructor to know that the targeted learning has been accomplished. Some of this is somewhat linear (when teaching process) and at times the learning is free-flowing based on a specific assignment, task, or problem to solve.

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 InDesign

I am a long-term user of InDesign and its earlier version PageMaker. I have both supported the product in a help desk scenario and used it to create a number of documents from one-page sales brochures to large documents with multiple chapters.
While there may be a feature that I am not familiar with in InDesign, my background allows me to find an answer to any question of use for InDesign.

Photography

I am a former Nikon School Instructor with more than 20 years of experience making images both with film and digitally. My experience includes working for newspapers, magazines, and web sites.
My portfolio can be found at www.photobyrustyrae.com and I believe that it demonstrates my ability across many venues of image-making -- from sports photography to landscape to people photography.
