My Philosophy on life…hmmmm, interesting question. Well, I’m a big fan of the whole life-long-learning thing. I’ve been an educator pretty much my whole career and along the way continue to learn as much as I teach. I love that! There’s nothing better than helping someone by giving their creativity a boost, learning a few new ideas or answering a student’s burning question – only to get some great ideas back from them.I think that life is one big experiment and that tools like Photoshop lend themselves to those experiments. Try something new, don’t be afraid. It only takes a few seconds to try something different and you can always undo if you don’t like the results.

As a photographer, I aim to get my images opt look the way I want right from the camera. However, I also embrace Photoshop as a creative tool, accepting that it lets me do things I could not do in camera alone. I sum it up this way: Photography + Photoshop = Creativity. That’s while I call myself a Photoshopotographer. Say it with me: photoshopotography. As they used to say in that old commercial, “try it, you’d like it”.
