Helen - Tooting - Photoshop

Methodology

I teach photoshop to all different ages and levels. I use photoshop everyday as a professional retoucher, and bring this industry knowledge to my teaching. I love the process of continuously learning myself, whilst passing on my knowledge to others.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Photoshop is a vast software, and can be used for many different reasons. I can help you to understand the basics, to give you a good platform to progress from, and I can gear the lessons to the area you need. Sometimes, finding out what you need to learn is the most important part! For more advanced students, I can teach you industry standard techniques, and methods to speed up your workflow. Some areas you may wish to learn include :-

Editing photography

Fashion/beauty retouching

Image Compositing

Photoshop for Fine Art

Photoshop for design (e.g. Architecture, interior design)

Creating a portfolio.

If you have an idea of what you need to learn, or would like to talk it through with me, feel free to get in touch!

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Loughborough University, 2008 BA Fine Art (Hons) First Class.
Central Saint Martins, 2011-2013 MA fine Art.

- How much do you charge?

£40 an hour for one to one tuition. For groups and business bookings please enquire for a quote.

- Where do you teach?

I am based in South West London (Tooting) but I'm happy to travel within zones 1-3 in London.

- When are you available?

My availability varies on a weekly basis, but I'm pretty flexible as to when I teach, so please enquire!

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I've taught all ages from 7 upwards, and levels from the very basics of getting to grips with Photoshop to using it at an advanced level often required for professional tasks.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I have guided students through portfolio preparation, both in making the aesthetic decisions and in using photoshop to finish it to a professional level.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I've been in the production industry for about 6 years. My background is in Fine Art photography, which I studied to MA level. My practice involved creating photo-real collages, and thats where my relationship with photoshop began. Until recently, I worked as a retoucher at a production company, where I retouched CGI and photography. Here I worked with automotive and product photography as well as CGI architectural visualisations. I recently returned to the freelance life to give me more flexibility, and leave me some time for teaching!

I've been teaching photoshop for about 8 years now, falling into it through community art projects after uni. I've worked with all age groups, both in groups and on a one to one basis. At the moment, I teach courses at Platform 39, and also have some regular one to one students.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

My CRB is dated from August 2011.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Some of my recent students include a fashion photographer, wishing to learn retouching skills, a print/textile designer and a film production company.

I contacted Helen to help me with product photography for my online vintage furniture store. I needed help with the photography and also the photo editing in Photoshop. Helen was able to show me the essentials of photography, lighting and composition and also taught me a LOT about Photoshop, all in just a few hours.
Using Helen via Tutor Pages was so effective, everything was tailored to my requirements and my product photos are now looking great!
