This site is different than any other Photographer's site that you will
ever see. This is because this site is not designed for people looking to hire the services of a Photographer.
This site is designed for Photographers who want to expand the range of pictures that they can create.
Instead of a specific course, I am offering a blending of several photography disciplines from taking the
photograph(s) to crafting each picture using different Photography software packages to finally displaying your
creations(web site, advanced slide shows, print, etc.) I offer a workshop that I call:
Custom Photography Workshops: Warning! Some brief nudity in media show. Must be over 21 to view this show.
My workshops are different in that only one person takes the workshop at a time. All photography
training classes start with one or more pictures that originate from a photo model session(model is an extra
cost), a visit to one of the scenic areas in Fort Pierce, Vero Beach or Port St. Lucie, or some decent
picture files(jpeg,tiff, photoshop) that you will bring with you. In the end, the ultimate objective is to
produce a picture(s) that you can say, "Wow did I create that
Classes are progressive in that a
class may be based on something learned in a previous class.
What I teach is based on what the student
needs to learn. This is something that we determine before the
class begins. My job is to pick the topic areas in the classes you choose. Also if you indicate a
certain type of picture you want to create I might suggest which course will best serve your
When a student finishes my workshop he or she
has produced a finished product. This could be anything from a single picture(s) you have crafted
using several software programs to a slide or video show and even a basic
website. At the very least, I will help you craft a picture(s)
that you can put a frame around and proudly display on your living room wall. In the end I want you to
look at that picture and say "Wow I really nailed that picture."
What can you do with some of the
photo edited software programs I teach in my photography workshop classes? The important thing to know is that all
these software programs have online video training courses, and they are easy to learn. If they weren't you
wouldn't be looking at this page. The main thing you can learn from me is how to tie it altogether to make
interesting pictures. Which is the best image? Depends on what you want to accomplish with your

|| This was the original picture I took of Aimee at a workshop. As you can see I
included a lot crap in the picture. Not my finest moment as a photographer. If the
model wasn't super hot and didn't know how to strike up an interesting pose, I would have pushed
the 'delete' button on this picture.
||This is an example of how Portrait Professional can change
the look of somone you are photographing. Yes, this model is pretty attractive. But I did make
changes to her hair, lips and eyes and gave her a little more tan as a way of showing what is
|| Finally with Perfect Photo Suite I have masked out the
background and inserted a different background. I also put a rich glow on the image while adding a
little more intensity to Aimee's features.( note: the next 6 pictures used this image as a

|| Topaz 'Glow' and Alien Skin 'Impasto' filers were used in this picture. Less of
these filters were used in the facial area.
|| Topaz Simplicity 'Oil Painting Black and White 2' filter was used and the image
was moved to On one perfect Photo suite to add a little hint of color on the face and more
color on the right side.
|| Same as above picture with the additon of Topaz extreme color blast. Notice more
contrast and saturaton
|| Topaz Glow 'Into the light' filter was used mostly to make the background, hair
and Bathing suit top a little more surreal.
|| Used Topaz extreme color blast and dark ghostly. In PPS I painted out around the
eyes and set the blend to multiply. In effects the adjustment brush was set to 'magic eye fixer' so
that the eyes would pop out.
|| Used to many effects to explain is this small space. Not a great treatment
but a good example of what you can do using several programs.
|| Need another alternative picture to the above picture. If you do how about
Adobe Photoshop Elements. I used a filter called Sumi and set my blending mode to
100% with Luminence. Notice how the picture pops up her eyes and lips
|| A black-and-white picture with some color accent could be considered a gimmick.
However, this technique can expand the ways you craft a picture. Perfect Photo
Suite was used to blend color with black and white.
I included this picture because I wanted to show more of the things you can do with
the programs I will teach and the model in the picture is the same model used in the previous
pictures. The background picture was taken at McKee Botanical Gardens in Vero Beach, Florida during
their dinosaur show. The model was photographed, flash, during an indoor photo shoot. I used Corel
Painter Essentials to craft her picture. The background picture was crafted with Perfect Photo
Suite 7. I wanted to make the dino bigger, so I created a duplicate file of the background and used
the mask feature to get rid of the background around the dino. Then I used the clone feature in
Layers(same program) to clone out enough of the dino on the original file so when I combined the
larger dino with the original background you would not see parts of the dino from the original
file. Then I added the picture of the model and blended this picture with my background picture.
Lastly, I used the effects feature giving more contrast and add glow where I wanted glow. The
best part of Perfect Photo Suite 7 is that you can add or decrease your effect to whatever degree
you want to in whatever area within the picture you think needs changes. The last tweet I made was
in Adode Photoshop Elements, ver 9. I used the Comic Book filer to increase the contrast and
saturation a little more.
The main point of this paragraph is that if you believe your picture ends
at the point where you snap your picture, then you do not want to spend money on one of
my workshops. I don't use these programs to compensate for mistakes I have made in taking my
pictures. I just don't want limits on how I can create a picture.
Are you ready for a little
I call my workshops Photo-cations because there is more going on then a
workshop. My Custom Photo-cations are more about having a good experience,
reviving your creative jucies and looking at your craft a little differently.
I live in the Fort Pierce area of Florida. I also live
near Vero Beach and Port St. Lucie.
All are interesting places to take good pictures, relax and enjoy yourself
while hopefully learning some new things. My workshops are for beginners who
may have heard about some of the software programs I will teach, but don't
know about combining the various programs into an interesting picture, slide
show or part of your website. I am a decent Photographer but not a great
technical photographer, I only learn enough to take the kind of pictures I
want to create. Please don't come to my workshops expecting me to be
a famous expert at the courses I will teach. The idea is to
expand your options and your creativity as a Photographer, and make you
knowlegeable about the many ways you can create interesting pictures
and of course have a good time... Hopefully you will check out my Fort Pierce, Vero Beach and Port
St. Lucie pages on my main photography website to find out some of my
ideas for having a good time.
