I'm an instructor that teaches Photoshop for beginners, but if you are more experienced, then take advantage of my free Photoshop courses. I’ve been teaching Photoshop & Retouching on Udemy since 2012. In my personal capacity, I’m an owner of a Digital Media Agency where the core focus lays in Content Creation. I’ve been an active photographer and retoucher since 2010 and have worked on many advertising campaigns in Cape Town “South Africa” for clients like Mercedes, Zara, H&M, etc, When I'm not working on campaigns, I'm producing online training courses & I have realized that it has become my passion to teach online, this may vary between Photoshop, Photography, Design or Business Content.
