I'm offering BIG DISCOUNTS listed below to those who sign up during COVID-19 health crisis.


With this new reality of a city and world in the grips of a pandemic we have to do everything possible to not only keep everyone safe but also to continue to live our lives!
What I am doing, is teaching all of my students virtually. I have been teaching out-of-town students remotely with web conferencing software for some time. With the current health crisis I've found this to be a solution for all my students. It is simple and straightforward to use and I'll have you online with me in seconds. 
To help you improve your photography while spending more time at home, I've added a new course titled, SETTING UP A HOME STUDIO and the following are my other courses that you can take advantage of at this time.

Learn the correct work-flow for processing your digital images and how to maximize your image quality. With the advancement of digital photography there have never been so many software options available to today's photographers. The choices, costs, and learning curves can be so daunting that it can be hard to know where to start...and finish. Enter ADOBE LIGHTROOM. This powerful, user-friendly, all-in-one software was produced with photographers in mind – not computer gurus. All the tools of digital image processing and organization are here: folders, white balance, levels, cropping, Hue, Saturation, black/white conversion and much, much, more. Everything is laid out in front of you in an elegant, clean interface. This course is delivered in six, three hour classes and will guide you through the most important fundamentals of Adobe Lightroom.


FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY WORKFLOW ADOBE PHOTOSHOP: Six - remote virtual classes, 12 hours, $1280 (regularly $1600) 
Adobe Photoshop is the industry standard in digital imaging, it's an environment of endless creative possibilities. I teach a workflow that is non-destructive, protecting the information in your digital negative so that your prints can be truly outstanding. Once learnt this workflow is simple and repeatable. I wean photographers off of plug ins, presets and auto settings all of which in the end rob photographers of controlling their creative process and often deteriorate their image files. Whether you are relatively new to Photoshop or you want to quickly expand your expertise; these one on one lessons teach you what you need to know to achieve your goals with your fine art practice. In order to use Photoshop effectively you must be instructed along the lines of your creative interests.
