About Philip

Do yourself a favor - pick the instructor that fits what you want to do. My expertise is in digital and traditional illustration, photo retouching, setting up files for the web and print, and design for local and national clients. I work in a variety of styles, but specialize in realism.
I've taught Photoshop for nearly as long as the program has existed, but its my art background that sets my work apart. I've done international work for hundreds of clients and finally reached a point where I am willing to take on a few private students, from beginner to advanced, teaching them everything from program shortcuts, working with layers, layer masks, channels, paths, to animations and how to incorporate Photoshop files with other programs. What I can teach you in a short period of time could save you years of frustration and trial and error guesswork. Photoshop is a complex program, but I can help you with the most important parts.
If you have a recent version of Photoshop and a fast machine, I can teach you in your own home, or, if you want to learn on my machines, Mac or PC, I can teach you at my studio, everything you need to know to do professional work. I'm easy to work with, friendly and courteous, and its a great way to learn Photoshop, art, or video editing the fast way. I also teach beginning to advanced painting, beginning 3d, design, and Photoshop at local colleges.

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 Photoshop

I've done illustration and design work for most of the top design firms and advertising agencies here in the Northwest and across the country. I've done over 4,000 jobs, most of them digital, using Photoshop, Painter, 3D, and a combination of painted imagery with digital enhancements.
I try to show students the basics with an eye on good design and learning the tools, before moving into more complex areas of each program or painting. I teach hands- on, so each student retains more by showing them how to do steps that they can easily repeat.

Drawing

I've been painting and illustrating for over 30 years on a national level. My work is in collections across the US and in Europe and Asia, as well as in corporate collections across the US.
I am in a number of books for my illustration work and have an art book out on one of my series.
I work very realistically but in a classic, painterly style.
I'm known for my drawing and oil painting and teach at various colleges when I have time. I also accept a few private students at my home studio.

Macintosh

I have been using Macs since they first came out. I work on 2 everyday, graphics to Word, and have them side by side next to my PCs, which is a great way to learn for students.
