Instruction and Classes

I have many years of teaching experience both in a corporate setting and since my retirement from corporate life in 2007, for camera clubs and other organizations throughout New England. I have been using Adobe Photoshop since 1997 and Adobe Lightroom since 2007 and I am known for my editing skill in the digital darkroom. I enjoy editing and working with software as much as I enjoy being out in the field with my camera. In addition, I was an invited speaker/instructor for the New England Camera Club Conference (NECCC) in 2018. I am an instructor for the Cape Cod Art Center in Hyannis (Cape Cod) in Massachusetts where I offer classes on Lightroom, Photoshop and other image processing applications such as Luminar and Topaz.

My teaching philosophy is that people learn by doing and that is one of the reasons many of my classes are hands-on where students are following along and working on their own computers. Of course, during Covid, most of my teaching is now via Zoom so classroom teaching for the time-being has been suspended until it’s safe to return to a group/class setting.

In addition, I offer many different classes for camera clubs and other organizations throughout New England. Topics include Lightroom, Photoshop, Luminar, and Topaz. I can also customize classes to suit your needs.

Below are descriptions of some of the classes/workshops that I offer. Please contact me for a more detailed description of the classes listed below and for my current rates.
