Photoshop Workshops

Photoshop  Workshops

In these digital imaging workshops we explore Adobe’s Photoshop. Adobe Photoshop is considered the industry standard and by far the most popular photo imaging software on the market.

I teach Photoshop as your digital darkroom. But most of what I teach can be applied to working with Photoshop Elements and many other layer based photo editing programs.
I also extensively use and teach Lightroom to organise, protect, edit and catalogue your image libraries.

One on one training can take place at my place, or up to two people in the comfort of your own home, this is available throughout the Hutt Valley and Wellington region.
