Having worked in many executive positions for major pro audio companies, as a graphic designer, web designer and photographer for over 20 years. Craig has the knowledge and understanding of not only the software he teaches, but also the techniques he imparts - a technique he willingly shares in 1 - 1 and small group seminars. He provides completely customizable teaching to suit your needs. Classrooms and video tutorials are one way to learn software, but most definitely not the best way.
Concentration, pace and covering the topics that are important to the client and their specific work needs, really do matter - especially when it comes to value for money.
