Photoshop Master Retoucher and Restoration Artist

My skills in Adobe Photoshop are impressive.  I've been using the program for retouching for more than ten years.  As a product photographer, I would edit and retouch hundreds of images in a day and I currently execute flawless digital photo restorations for a variety of clients.

Master Fine Art Printer

I have been printing for artists and photographers since 2003.  I have an expert knowledge of fine art inkjet printing with Epson and Canon inkjet printers as well as color profile building and implementation.  I print on a daily (sometimes hourly) basis and I am very good at it.

Front-End Web Design/Development

HTML, XHTML, CSS, PHP, jQuery, Flash, WordPress, and some ASP. I hand-code all of my web sites.


I am a master photographer.  I have extensive experience with all types of photography including portraits, event, product, advertising, etc.  I currently operate my own small photography business Ryerson Photography where I specialize in portrait and fine art work.  Some of my fine art work hangs in the offices of Ernst & Young in Atlanta and the Westin Hotel in Hilton Head.  My work can be viewed on-line in a number of different places including Flickr and Getty Images.  My photography is outstanding.
