Photoshop expert with 20 years experience available for 1 on 1 tuition

Methodology

Photoshop is a very wide-ranging program capable of being used in many different ways, for different things. The first thing I do is identify how you want to use Photoshop, and what you want to use it for. For example, retouching is a very different area to design, or perhaps you need to know how to set up spot colour files for packaging. Whatever it is you want to know, I can help you identify the areas you need to focus on. Teaching takes place remotely by webcam and screen share, using Zoom.

Background

I've been working as a graphic designer, image retoucher and digital illustrator for over 20 years. I started using Photoshop way back in 1995, at version 2.5. I've worked for many different clients and agencies over the years and have experience in design studios, advertising, book and magazine publishing, packaging, high end retouching, compositing, illustration and more. I can show you how to do pretty much anything you need to in Photoshop.

Perfect! James was a very knowledgeable tutor with a thorough understanding of Photoshop. His tutorials were informative and he was able to answer my in depth questions with ease. I would have no hesitation in recommending James.

James's response

Anthony is well organised with a clear idea of what he wants to achieve with Photoshop lessons, which is great as it makes it easy to tailor the lessons to exactly what he needs. Great student!
