Dave Cross Workshops

Software guru Dave Cross, a 2009 inductee in the Photoshop Hall of Fame, has been sharing his picture-manipulating wisdom with thousands of students since 1987, leading seminars on popular computer programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. In just the past 12 years, Cross has traveled to every state in the United States to teach the ins and outs of Photoshop, and he continues to run digital-photography and image-editing workshops at Studio 3 in Oldsmar. He has taught hundreds of students how to get their cameras out of automatic mode and to take better photographs. A man who wears many hats, Cross is also the lead instructor for the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, a co-host of a web-based show called Photoshop User TV, and the voice behind a weekly podcast known as “Ask Dave,” in which he answers user questions about Photoshop and doles out free advice on how to airbrush ghosts out of family portraits.

Customer Reviews

Great intro to dslr photography
Cody S. · August 1, 2012
Great workshop! I need more sessions!
Crystal · July 31, 2012
I would definitely recommend this to be a 2 or 3 day course. That way photographers can practice what they've learned out on the field and report back and receive feedback. I would also recommend more practice time. We were only given a couple of opportunities to practice in the studio.
