About Cindy
Photography is a passion of mine and I love sharing it with others. I enjoy helping others understand the art and science in photography and would be delighted to work with you.

--- REVIEWS ---
Prior students and clients have given me 5 of 5 stars in all 51 online ratings across various websites. Students have told me they appreciate the way I simplify complex topics, such as in these reviews from prior students:

Incredibly helpful
Cindy was incredibly helpful, and really went "above and beyond" in every way. She's extremely knowledgeable and did a tremendous amount of research in order to supplement her work on this job. Saved me many, many hours of potential aggravation — I will definitely continue to rely on her for expertise with all things Lightroom/Photoshop/PostProduction for photography. Highly recommended!
- Aaron S.,

Computer Challenged student gives her 5 stars plus!
Cindy was very patient and worked well with my low computer skill level. The class was very informative and fun. I believe we hit it off right away. I can't wait for my next class.
- Hope S., Snellville, GA

Very patient.
Cindy was able to untangle my Lightroom 6 update snarl with patience and humor. She has an excellent grip on the mechanics of Lightroom and communicates well. I recommend her highly.
- Elizabeth S., Middleton, MD

Excellent
Contacted Cindy a few months ago to help me to put together a slide show, clean up my photos, To say that I'm technically inept would be a compliment. At my age (you don't want to know) just about all these new programs give me the shakes. I was using a rather basic photo program and she recommend I take a look at Adobe Lightroom. I was notified that it would look a bit intimidating and was pretty aggressive. That was an understatement. Well, it's been a couple months now and I think the Adobe LR program is absolutely terrific. I've become quite proficient and the program is so inclusive that I'm sure, despite how far I've come along, it will always be able to do what I need with the help of Cindy. She has been very responsive, knowledgeable, organized and very patient. My lessons will be ongoing (every two weeks) and will build upon a strong foundation. Highly recommend Cindy.
- Tom K., Marietta, GA

--- LOCATION ---
I offer tutoring online via Skype and in person at the Alpharetta library.

About Paulina
Hi! My name is Paulina and I teach computer magic! I recently spent three semesters teaching at my Alma mater, the University of Southern California (as Paulina Grey - check RateMyProfessor!) where I earned my B.S. in Computer Science with a minor in Digital Forensics. That is where I taught information security and introductory and intermediate C++ programming classes. At the same time, I was working for a private, Los Angeles-based digital forensics firm.

I am also an ordained minister and certified spiritual counselor. I have traveled the world and have know and loved many cultures. My life has been filled with many lessons of pain and peace as I have grown spiritually and energetically. I have spent many years in self-development and, now, I choose to inspire those who need more energy in their own lives.

Paulina is incredible. She made it simple to understand memory structures, objects, security design and logic constructs. Her diverse background enables some interesting conversations as well! Very motivational teacher; the best I've ever seen.

About Austin
Lets have fun and learn! Ever wish you could create awesome work, but lack the technical skills to do so? After being self taught for 11 years then going to art school and working professionally in the creative industry for 7 years I've worked on a lot of cool projects and love sharing my experience in the field. I can honestly say I love what I do and teaching is just something I do for fun on the side because I enjoy helping other creatives develop the skills they need to produce awesome work. (For a tiny fraction of the time & money I spent acquiring skills.) I can teach you exactly what you need to know.

Choose to learn from me if you would like to learn about a bit more than just the topic selected. I have mentored a lot of successful artists and entrepreneurs and would be stoked to add you to the list.

The 5 star rating isn't an overstatement. Austin is seriously the best instructor/teacher/mentor you could ask for. He is extremely motivated to help people learn and understand. He has a ton of passion for video and graphic design work. He has expert knowledge of the subject and is extremely thorough when teaching. 100 percent recommend.
