"Andrew is gifted and knows all things Photoshop!
He recently rescued an event where I needed some graphic work done the day before the event. His level of expertise and patience was exceptional. He was hands on throughout the process, accessible and he assured me that he could bring the concept into fruition. I would certainly use him again and would refer him to anyone who wants an expert on their project."
"I've always wanted to learn Photoshop but never had the patience to do it on my own. Andrew has made it easy to understand and fun to learn. He has a wealth of experience with the program and there are no questions he cannot answer. I highly recommend his services."
"Andrew and I spent about two hours together recently. I am an intermediate level amateur photographer
and had run into problems with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. Andrew, first of all, is a master teacher with a deep understanding of the Adobe products, uses them to make a living, teaches, and has a fine arts orientation with technical chops. He completely clarified my understanding of Lightroom, its basic concepts, purpose, efficient use, etc, introduced me to the proper use of the program and then spent an hour going through his method (at my level) of processing an image. He is very smart, relaxed, communicates well, and knows what he is talking about. He is organized and his experience as a user and a teacher was readily apparent. Thank you Andrew, for getting me back on track and providing an outline for future learning. I recommend him to anyone needing assistance with Lightroom and Photoshop."

"If you're looking for a Photoshop, Lightroom, photo editing tutor, you can stop looking.
Andrew is the perfect tutor in so many ways: impeccably professional, incredibly knowledgeable, patient,
appropriately-priced, and importantly, in a huge city like LA, safe to do business with.
I'm a professional living in Los Angeles, went online to find a tutor for Adobe Photoshop CS6, and feel very fortunate to have found Andrew Kavanagh. I'm an advanced-amateur photographer that has used Photoshop CS5 tutors before, and also professional photographers for tutoring, and so I'm an informed user of these services. Andrew is quite simply...the best!!! My only regret is that I didn't discover and use his services earlier! Give him a try - I'm very happy I did."
"Andrew is such a fantastic resource...while I live in Rochester NY and Andrew is based in Los Angeles, we're still able to work together using cloud based services like Dropbox. Andrew's retouching on my latest project allowed me to bring in some images that had been damaged by the ravages of time. I look forward to working with Andrew again in the future & recommend him highly!
"During the past 6-months I have found Andrew to be a skilled, patient and effective tutor for me in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop! Andrew does and excellent job of ensuring his students have a strong/broad foundation of understanding of the tools, capabilities and workflow of various software tools-- so his students can effectively use those skills going forward to expand their competency, success and enjoyment with digital photography."
"Andrew knows everything there is to know about Lightroom and Photoshop.
I contacted him to help me with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and he did just that. He was very patient and lets you work "hands on", so that it is easier to learn which is what I prefer. I am totally contacting him again when it is time to learn Photoshop in depth! Thanks again Andrew!"
"I had a specific tool I wanted to learn to use on Photoshop, and though nothing is as simple as just learning about one tool when you don't know the program, Andrew walked me through it and was patient, knowledgeable and thorough. Thank you Andrew!"
"Andrew is an excellent tutor. He is teaching me the ins and outs of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
Soft-spoken, knowledgeable, gracious, he explains things clearly and repeats patiently when I don’t grasp something
the first time. Andrew is methodical, lays things out simply, and takes it one step at a time.
He is better than an AAA Triptik. He is also punctual, something I much appreciate!"
S. Korr, M.D.
"I started taking Photoshop lessons from Andrew this past month.
When it comes to Lightroom I can not image a person as knowledgeable or as skilled as Andrew.
He has complete command of the program and makes it so easy to understand. Patience is his ultimate virtue
and that really makes the learning process quite enjoyable."
"I'm a wedding photographer and fine art photographer.
I needed some basic Photoshop tutorials which involved getting comfortable with the tools, retouching,
running actions, and working back and forth with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. Basically, Andrew had me going in two sessions. I'd recommend him to anyone looking to get serious about learning Photoshop. He has a nice comfortable demeanor, and each session was focused and productive."

"Andrew is an excellent teacher of Photoshop and Lightroom.
Not only that, but he is exceedingly patient (which is really good if you are tech - challenged)
He is attentive and intuitive and, somehow, he is able to make the most complicated Photoshop operations
& techniques clear and simple. Additionally, he is reliable, flexible and punctual and, most importantly, he is fun to be with!"
"Andrew Kavanagh has been my Photoshop and Lightroom teacher for several years.
He is an extremely talented artist, a capable and experienced teacher and a true gentleman.
He is able and qualified to teach from the most basic to the most complex areas of Photoshop and Lightroom
to his students regardless of their backgrounds. He custom designs his lessons to the learning capability of his students.
Being a teacher for many years, I feel qualified to grade people. I feel no hesitation to give Andrew an A+, and I highly
recommend him to anybody who is interested in learning Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom in a systematic and proper way."

He is always up to date with the latest from Adobe. I have no hesitation to recommend his teaching to anyone.

"For many years, Andrew has created exceptional designs and presentations in a variety of traditional and new media
for ShowsToYou.com. I continue to work with Andrew because he is totally professional and responsive to my ideas.
"Andrew has the unique ability to teach Photoshop and Lightroom in a way that you can actually remember
what he's taught you and use it practically. I've gone to Andrew several times, each for two hour sessions,
and have become very proficient at Lightroom and Photoshop CS5. In a short time I've mastered all of Lightroom,
and am excellent in specific areas of Photoshop. He's a great guy, and I'd recommend him to anyone who's serious
about learning these complex software programs."
Brett Froomer - Photographer
"Andrew really knows the software and how to teach it. He taught me how to use Adobe Lightroom.
Now I use it all the time. It's the most important piece of software in my arsenal.
Of course, he's also a Photoshop expert and is always sending me info on shortcuts, updates, and "tricks & tips".
Andrew's the best. He's knowledgeable, thorough, punctual, and jovial. It's always fun to take lessons with Andrew!"
Victor Moreno - Photographer
"I give Andrew 5 stars.
Andrew was very patient, knew the material, answered all my questions, and let me set the pace.
I learned the skills that I needed for my business. Money very well spent."
"Andrew was one of the very first members of the Los Angeles Photoshop User Group and has very quickly become
a KEY member and contributor, distinguished by his enthusiasm, reliability and generosity.
As a working Photoshop professional, Andrew has offered our fellow members several training sessions,
which were very well received. His training style is professional, thorough and patient.
He truly cares about the students learning and understanding.
His knowledge of Photoshop is very deep and extensive, and his passion
for teaching shows in the quality of instruction
he has delivered to us. The Los Angeles Photoshop User Group is really very fortunate to have Andrew as a member
and he is one of the major reasons for our ongoing success."
Christian Gaspar, Organizer - The Los Angeles Photoshop User Group
"Andrew is a phenomenal Photoshop and Adobe Creative Suite tutor. I have been working with him since October 2007 and my proficiency with the Adobe Creative Suite has increased dramatically.
Andrew prepares detailed, concise and easy to follow lesson plans based upon questions that I email him in advance, or projectsthat I propose we work on. In addition to helping me with my requests, he also brings his own ideas and guides me in the direction that he feels will be most beneficial to me, as I learn the intricacies and functionality of the Adobe Creative Suite.
Andrew is creative, easy going, extremely professional, always punctual and goes above and beyond the parameters of average tutoring. He is always available if I need a little extra help, or if I have any questions after a lesson.
He is extremely knowledgeable and has taught me everything from the fastest way to get something done (Hello keyboard shortcuts and action commands!) to the most professional and appropriate ways to create and prepare files for sharing, printing, and for use on the web, etc. (Layers and color profiles!)
An added bonus is his depth of knowledge and understanding of the Apple platform. I have learned more about using my Mac efficiently
and effectively than I ever thought possible - a fabulous extra from
his Adobe Creative Suite and Photoshop lessons! I highly recommend Andrew and have enjoyed working with him immensely."
"I have lots of good things to say about Andrew. Friendly, funny, helpful, conscientious, and always well prepared when teaching. Andrew also brings a wealth of technical knowledge with him that he is more than willing to share with a knowledge hungry student or an aspiring peer. His tutorials are step by step with great flow, where any complex technique become so easy to use. If you need help with something, Andrew will help you times ten. I can recommend Andrew to anyone without reservation who needs a great and knowledgeable Photoshop tutor who is always available to help at any level."
