What if I’ve never used Photoshop? If you’re a beginner, or you’ve tried Photoshop a few times, but need some pointers, I’ll walk you step-by-step through fundamental techniques. You’ll learn to avoid the most common technical mistakes and frustrations, so you can spend more time being creative.
What if I just want to learn a specific technique? No problem. We’ll focus on a single how-to. But, if you’d like to continue beyond that starting point, you can easily arrange subsequent sessions. We’ll target your interests and explore new and exciting ways to achieve the results you want.

I’m an advanced Photoshop user. What can you offer me? Like most everyone else, I’ve learned Photoshop through trial and error, how-to books, tutorials, classes and workshops. I’ve also participated in intensive, one-on-one instruction offered by Adobe professionals. As a featured instructor for Topaz Labs, I’ve taught live, online workshops for students all around the world.
Along the way, I gained insights into how Photoshop works – the mechanics that drive the most subtle and advanced artistic effects. For me, these insights are the most powerful Photoshop tools, and I’m happy to share them – along with hundreds of tips and tricks I’ve gathered from top Photoshop artists, illustrators, graphic designers, and photographers.
What if I need help between sessions? Just send me an email or call. I’ll always make time to answer your questions or jump online for a brief tutorial.
Can you tailor each session’s content to meet my specific interests and needs? Absolutely—that’s one of the great advantages of private lessons! I spend a lot of time preparing each session, exploring resources, and reviewing the latest digital art trends. I fill each session with ways you can try, practice, and incorporate creative new ideas and techniques.
What version of Photoshop do I need? Photoshop CC 2018 is ideal, with all the latest tools and features. Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC 2017 could be adequate, depending on the features you need.
