About Scott

I am a professional photographer and author located near Milwaukee. I tutor people in lighting, posing, and post production (including Photoshop). I do a lot of workshops and themed shoots for many publications.

I teach all styles of lighting from Natural light, augments natural light with strobes, speedlight usage, studio strobes, modification of light, modification of modifiers, and so on. Any style of image, but I am especially passionate about portraiture.

Photoshop, Lightroom, and Capture One are also areas I teach. With over a decade of experience in Photoshop, I can show anything from simple image tone and contrast, to advanced skin retouching and modification. Image compositing is also an area I really enjoy, and working with other creatives is a pure joy.

Note that I can also do retouching tutoring via screen sharing, so there is no limitation on distance for these lessons.

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 have Expert level knowledge in Photoshop (since version 2.5), Lightroom (since early beta), and CaptureOne (since version 6).

I have also written numerous articles on Photoshop and Lightroom techniques and I also have videos online.

Photography

I do many workshops in my studio in Germantown, where we teach lighting, posing, and post-production. I wrote a book on conceptual portraiture in 2012 that covered topics such as set lighting and portrait retouching. I have over 1,000,000 follows world wide in the professional photography circles and am invited to speak around the nation on the subject.
