Hi, My name is Rocky.
I’m a creative by trade: an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop, a Photoshop World Guru Award winner, the Co-Manager of the Las Vegas Adobe User Group and I run a small studio with my wife offering retouching, art direction, design, photography, videography, animation and even creating cinemagraphs.
Retouching and composites are my main focus but my current obsession is creating and mastering the art of cinemagraphs. I was lucky enough to speak on this subject multiple times this last year. The two most prominent being at the 2016 NABShow in Las Vegas about creating cinemagraphs and how to properly shoot them, and then again at the 2016 Adobe MAX Creative conference in San Diego where I showed a complete mobile photography/cinemagraph workflow utilizing Adobe Creative Cloud, an iPad Pro and Flixel Cinemagraph Pro. I have also taught webinars for Toronto based Flixel Photos Inc on how to use their software Cinemagraph Pro to easily create them. Most recently I was a presenter at the 2017 Adobe MAX Conference where I taught Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects to the students in my sessions. I really enjoy sharing my knowledge on these subjects with others that have the same interests.
Over my career i’ve enjoyed working with some incredible clients like the Kansas City Royals, Adobe Systems Inc, Project375/Brandon Marshall Foundation, Paul Mobley Photography, Mike Campau Digital Imagery, Hard Rock Cafe, Digital Royalty, Hilton Worldwide, Caesars Entertainment…and many others. You can find some of my favorite projects here on my Behance page or by checking out our Facebook page for more up to date info on things we are currently working on.
When I am not immersed in retouching or design I like to spend my days snowboarding in Utah and Colorado and hanging out with my wife photographing everything we see.
I am available for hire and always looking to collaborate with other people. Feel free to contact me for more info.
