I have 10 years of experience working with Adobe Creative Suite software. I have an extensive archive of completed projects of my own along with many of my clients'. My expertise is in editing photos and graphics, shooting and rendering videos for online and DVD publication, and editing online content for various clients and personal projects. My most-used applications are Photoshop, Premiere, Encore, Dreamweaver, and Adobe Media Encoder.
I can teach how to carry a photo and audio/video project from start to finish, implementing effective practices to make the project stand out. If you have an existing project you need help with, we can go over it together.

Understanding the Basics - goes over how to navigate the interface, basic shortcut keys, adding text, working with images, and other features to get you up and running as quickly as possible. Layers - shows you how to combine multiple images, resize them, split them apart, and add in color boxes. Selections - starts by showing how to remove simple images from a photograph and finishes by showing how to select out strands of hair and change the background. Color Correction - goes from simple corrections to in depth theory. It uses this theory to fix complicated photographs, change the color of a shirt from yellow to green, and even turn part of an image into black and white. Object Removal - isn't just about how to remove a pimple. It covers removing wires, large objects such as a fencepost, and even how to get rid of something like a date stamp when it is in front of a person's face. Beauty Retouching - I show you how to remove wrinkles, increase the size of an eye or decrease ...
I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis. I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University of Nottingham. I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system. Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I str
ongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc.... The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love.
Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Professional, and find great reward in sharing my experience and knowledge with my students.
When the "aha" light goes on, it's truly a wonderful moment for me, and encourages me to drive my students to build towards more of those moments as students, and then ultimately, for themselves as they learn to grow for themselves.
Richard is so patient and knowledgeable. I am very happy with our lessons. Because of my background with classical guitar he wondered if the fact that he doesn't read music and I am renewing my mind back into it would not be a good teaching set-up. Not at all. I now have an electric guitar and the five years spent playing classical, now fifteen years ago, did not give me a good foundation for understanding music theory unfortunately. I have a genre I had already picked out fingerstyle electric and now with some thinking my way through the basics I did have I still need to learn just basic strumming etc. I understand what he is referring to in music so we still speak in the same key. Also and lastly my daughter has a severe seizure/dementia disorder that is very unpredictable and our caregiver's mom just passed away so there will be times when I just can't do a week/day. He has been very understanding. I am smiling from my soul because music is my healing path for difficult stuff I couldn't pay any doctor/therapist to even call me back for. Thank you so much for your assistance. Sincerely Teresa

Richard got me off to a great start with my new camera.

Thanks again for your time and info yesterday. I will email you soon, and we will figure out when we should meet for our next class.
I have been using Photoshop for 5 years and have experience with photo editing, drawing, and photomanipulation. I have an extensive knowledge of the software and can teach the ins and outs of how to create and edit images in Photoshop, as well as how to work with video and 3D models.
My name is David S, and I have been a CG artist and animator for 8 years. Computer graphics is a passion of mine, and I consider it a joy to pass on what I have learned to others. In 2014, I graduated from Huntington University with a B.S. degree in Digital Media Arts - Animation, so I possess a very good understanding of the principles of animation that spans just about every medium. I have also worked on multiple independent projects ranging from shorts to feature films, which has given me a wealth of practical experience.
If you consider yourself a fun and creative person and have an interest in animation or design, then I would love to work with you to develop your skills. Perhaps you're more interested in Hollywood-style special effects, in which case I can teach you many of the secrets of the trade. Regardless, I can provide soli
d training to get you started in any of these great fields.

Photoshop is a super powerful tool. I've been using photoshop in a real world environment for about 20 years! Plus, I enjoy working with people and patiently helping you understand how Photoshop, and other adobe Creative Suite tools, can work specifically for you, without having to know all of the extras. Let me help you find your creative Photoshop workflow!
I love people! I enjoy teaching and training, listening and learning, meeting new people and discovering new things. As a Creative Director south of Nashville, I make time to work with children and adults, teaching drawing, photography, Adobe Creative Suite and other creative computer skills. I also coach soccer in Nolensville, TN. My own art reflects a passion for people, as I am primarily a portrait artist in photography as well as with pencil, pen and ink, and watercolor. I started with teaching art classes in High school, then as part of wilderness trips in the white mountains, teaching creative survival skills. I work often with youth athletics and skills training, with the children in my church, and all ages as a mentor, tutor, and coach outside of regular business hours... Lately I have been helping photographers and models build
their brand identity with pictures. - - What are your creative needs?

Daniel was outstanding and very patient. I knew a little about drawing and he took me to the next level. My art is very lifelike and realistic thanks to Daniel.
August 13, 2017
Daniel is great, he is extremely knowledgeable. He explains things in detail so that you have a thorough understanding of how Indesign works and interfaces with other programs. He is happy to answer any and all questions and moves at a good pace.
We will start by getting to know one another a bit so I can gain a clear idea of what you are hoping to gain from our sessions. Whether it be an intro to a software or taking developing a full start to finish project. After our first meeting I will use my 11 years of professional experience to develop a unique lesson plan for you and your goals.
Hi! My name is Etana, M.S. I am a detail oriented, self starting designer with 12 years of professional experience under my belt. From print to web, design is not simply what I do for a living, it is my passion.
I run a Tempe, Arizona based business called SocietyJazz = ‘Society’ as in the totality of people and ‘Jazz’ as in all that stuff. Society Jazz brings together my core concepts: People .Passions . Environments.
I bring this philosophy into my teaching method: I believe that each person is uniquely different so therefore their love/passion in life and how they bring it into the world is their own. I use this philosophy to create unique lessons based on you, how you learn and what you want to learn.
There isn't a creative challenge I won't take on with you no matter your experience level. My greatest joy is to share my pas
As an Emmy award winning animation artist with 27 years in the animation industry, I founded the non profit, EDU DESIGNS, to bring the arts back into schools. Check out my blog there for more information.
I created the first Art Textbook to reference Math Standards to help teachers without an art background share skills with students that expand their ability to see what they are looking at.
My art presentations, videos and lessons help thousands of teachers and students improve character development and increase motivation for learning.
Stories are a powerful vehicle to impact a child's mind and develop positive character. In the animation industry I brought other people's stories into being. Now I mentor younger artists to learn the skills required to bring their dreams into reality.
Ruth brings her years of professional training & experience along with a humble, cheerful, teacherly personality. She is a jewel and I count myself very lucky to have found such a genuine & gifted artist.
January 6, 2018
Ruth is an absolute delight! She is not only talented but also kind which makes her a wonderful teacher. I would highly recommend her without any reservations!
"Gilbert is an amazing teacher, I had the pleasure of taking multiple classes of his and each one was my most looked forward to class everyday. Gil makes l
earning fun but in the most professional way possible, he simplifies concepts for you in a way that you can grasp a lot easier and expand on your own. He is also very knowledgeable in his fields ranging from Photoshop to Maya to tons of others. Every bit of knowledge I carry with me into the real world is from Gilbert. Had it not been for his amazing teaching style I would never have landed the graphic design jobs that i did. Using his techniques I was easily able to outperform other candidates for the job and land it myself. My biggest recommendation is to TAKE GIL'S CLASSES!"
"very knowledgeable, kind, communicative - would recommend to any begginer"
"This experience really helped me grasp important concepts that I otherwise would have never known. I feel like I learned A LOT in only 3 classes and I can
't wait to learn more. Gil was very productive; he based the lessons on what I use Photoshop for and actually allowed us to work on projects that I had to do for work, instead of just teaching what he wanted to teach. He was SUPER patient and never made me feel bad for stopping to take notes. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to learn a computer program he is knowledgeable in. This is totally irrelevant, but he has cool hair too! Thanks Gilbert!"
"Very knowledgeable, able to explain and teach the subject very well."
"I signed my mom up for a 30 minute session with Jessica as a Christmas gift and my mom loved it! Jessica answered a lot of Photoshop questions my mom had
and explained things step-by-step. Thanks, Jessica!"
"Etana has a great ability of knowing what is best for the individual. She's is very accommodating. What I love the most is whatever project I have, Etana
will help me with it and perfect it for me making it easier for me. But she is also very encouraging. If you have a particular project or just want an instructor that teaches you what you want to learn, she's your teacher! Very very appreciative of Etana! And very personable! I hope to meet her one day when I'm in her area! Or she's in mine."
"Jessica was great. She gave me really good pointers, showed me all of the tools and we worked on layers as well and was very patient with all my questions
. She is really knowledgeable. I will get back with her again after I have done some practicing. I highly recommend her."
"Joshua is a great instructor. He is very knowledgeable on the subject. He takes his time and makes sure you understand before moving on. I could not be
happier. Thank you."
"I had a great first lesson today! Jessica was very thorough but also made it easy to understand for someone with no experience. Her teaching style is down
to earth with very open dialogue - she not only went through the basics but touched base and made sure to cover aspects and relate to things in which i set as my goals. I am looking forward to the rest of my classes with Jessica!"
