Jonathan will be teaching our Adobe Lightroom classes; helping you to organize your workflow and take advantage of the myriad of tools and adjustments available to you within Adobe Lightroom RAW processor. He has been a part of high tech industries and peer training for many years. As a Technical-Artist in the game industry, he was tasked with many things, including training for artists and animators on new programs and technologies. He also helped to speed up workflows and make tools to make things faster for gaming artists.
Interest in digital mediums has led Jonathan to a passion for photography. He currently photographs weddings, engegements, family photos, portraits, and more. He has been working with Adobe Lightroom since the first version came out. Using past experiences training others within the gaming industry, he hopes to transfer this experience and expertise to his Lightroom classes with Omnilargess.
