Raising the Bar in the Bay Area:

I am filming the entire workshop series, to be released on DVD later this year!!

Due to health issues there will be no 2012 workshops. We are expecting to kick off the 2013 workshop series in February.  Descriptions & Models subject to change.

regards
Dave

I have come together with some talented friends to offer a fun and exciting  series of workshops for 2011. Our mission is to raise the quality of beauty and art by sharing knowledge and our experiences.  I have vast qualifications at leading such a venture. I have been employed in the High-Tech industry as a corporate trainer over the past ten years, developing curriculum and as a training leader. My style is unique. Over the years I have learned how to make learning fun and easy to retain. I’m very passionate about the subjects of photography.

I have a degree in Commercial Photography. My Photoshop qualifications: I use Photoshop everyday and have for over 10 years. I have developed curriculum and lead hands on training sessions for all experience levels. I am a long standing member of Photoshop Users International and regularly attend meetings of the Photoshop Users group at Adobe’s corporate headquarters in San Jose CA.

I hope you enjoy this series of workshops  and I looking forward meeting  all of you.

Best Regards
~ Dave
