Hi,
My name is Bryan. I am an artist, graphic designer, photographer and author. The most important thing about me is that I love people, am laid back and enjoy having fun. When it comes to learning, finding a joyful and interesting teacher is half the battle. Here is a quick overview of the various courses I teach:

PHOTOGRAPHY
Since the 80's I've sold art and photography online and in various galleries in CA, TX & AK. My specialty is in landscape, animals, candid and informal family activity photography. I teach using a 'hands on' approach which people find easy and intuitive. The beginner's course is held mostly outdoors, so be ready to go on some fun walks.

PHOTOSHOP
Over the years I've given private Photoshop tutoring to people of all ages. I instruct in the use of Photoshop's tools and how to apply layering, titling, transforming and filters effectively, plus much more. I also share step by step breakdowns of various projects I've completed in commercial advertising.

DRAWING
I've taught Contour Line Pencil Drawing for a community college and have given many private lessons in drawing to people of all ages. I know many tricks of the trade for drawing realistic portraits and can also show you how to draw anything you see.

My wife and I lived in a retirement apartment complex when we first met Bryan. He was working during many jobs, including activities. Some of the activities included art, ceramics, photography and design. Bryan is a very multitalented individual. He is very good at teaching untalented individuals to bring out the best in them. If heb can get along with crotchety seniors, he can work with anyone. I highly recommend Bryan for teaching any creative art, photography or computer art.
