They say the best way to learn is to teach. I've been learning since 1977 and as part of my expanded learning I do workshops in photography and post processing. My workshops will show you how to use the fundamentals of photography and post processing to get “the LOOK”. Anyone can Photoshop these days. But by learning the fundamentals of Photoshop, you will be able to create your own style and workflow accordingly. It’s easy. Photoshop is very intuitive if you have the proper guidance and mindset. I’ll show you how easy it is! I teach group workshops, camera clubs, or 1-on-1 for the discerning photo enthusiast by appointment.
I’ve been a photographer since 1977 and have used Photoshop since 1990 before being sold to Adobe. In 1993, Adobe introduced layers in Photoshop and I was involved in doing testing and samples for them.
My work appeared in many digital and photographic magazines in the 90's. I won numerous awards in conjunction with major digital expos. Major companies including National Geographic, Discovery Channel, and Smithsonian Institution showcased my work. Recently my editorials appeared in almost 100 fashion magazines. I became a master photographer then earned my fellowship at Master Photographers Association, UK and given the designation FMPA.
Anybody can take a picture with a camera these days. Skills and knowledge is what sets us apart and gives us our signature look. Invest in camera gear but also on knowledge. Knowledge is power!
