Teaching & Consulting
I offer one-on-one teaching or consulting on a wide variety of topics including printing, photography, the business of photography, and digital processing tools at my studio at a rate of $75/hr, $275 for a half day, and $500 for a full day. In the past I’ve consulted with clients about the use of various pieces of software, workflow tips, how to optimally set up their own printing or digital processing station, color calibration, paper choices, or any other type of digital imaging or printing tasks. Simply contact me with details of what you would like me to teach, and we'll come up with a plan to address those subjects.
My first Craftsy.com course, Editing Techniques in Night Photography, also covers printing night photography images. You can use this link for discounted rates, too (50% off). Lance Keimig has a great night photography field course here, too.
Fine Art Digital Printmaking Workshops
I offer fine art digital printmaking workshops for either individuals or groups at my studio in lovely Camden, Maine. My extensive experience creating fine art digital prints for scores of artists provides the backbone for these workshops.
Each workshop is customized for the interests and abilities of the students, and covers topics ranging from creating a master digital file to optimizing for print to paper selection for a particular project. Workshop participants should return home with at least one museum quality print of their work.
Workshop costs per person are $275 for a half day and $500 for a full day workshop, and significant individual discounts are available for group workshops.
Upcoming Printing Workshops at Maine Media Workshops
the craft and the art of the fine digital print (May 7-13 and August 20-26, 2017)
Please see the Maine Media Workshops site via the links above to register. Here is the course description:
In this course, students learn a workflow for creating fine digital prints. The workflow includes digital capture, establishing an artistic intent, digital processing in Adobe Photoshop and/or Lightroom, printing on an inkjet printer, and handling the finished print. Digital processing and printing topics include maximizing image quality at capture, color management, sharpening and noise reduction, black & white printing, proofing, matching screen and print, and making local and global edits to color and tonality. Throughout the course, we will work through images as a class by making a print, evaluating the print, make modifications, to ultimately produce a final print.
We also discuss the qualities and characteristics of a fine print, many of the plethora of options for inks and papers available to today’s printers, and how best to produce a print to realize an artistic vision, including choosing the best paper for a particular project.
Students have the opportunity to examine the challenges of printing on a large scale and to learn a wide range of techniques for maximizing overall print quality and for creating and handling large prints.
