I'm Kody, and I do this because I love it. I've become very good at helping people get their photography off the ground quickly by showing you each element of control you have over your images as intuitively as possible. The entire reason you're learning photography is because it's awesome, and I'll show you (via a tethered shoot for instant feedback) how and why each camera control can make your images more awesome.

I also teach great in-the-trenches adobe photoshop classes for photographers who don't want to be distracted by photoshop too much, but retain a competitive edge with the look and feel of their photographs. That being said, I love getting a lot more specific in photoshop, and if you can think of a problem, I've found a way to fix it. For more advanced photographers, I also offer learning through access to real commercial shoots with talented commercial photographers.

The before and after difference in the quality of my work after a couple lessons was amazing! We started by going over some of my current stuff to see what it was missing or what I could improve, on top of what was already planned and just helping me get an eye for what Photoshop can do. The lessons were very organized and well thought out and the experience was really enjoyable as well. The Instructor was easy to get along with and I always left feeling like I learned a lot.

Starting as a beginner to Photoshop, Kody gave a really good lesson in the basics so I can get started and start experimenting with what I can do with the software. Thanks Kody!

I was taking a class on photoshop, but when I started my first project, I was having trouble with layers. Kody helped me see what I'd missed and fix some shots I thought were beyond repair. Thank you!!
