Hi, my name is Rocky.
I’m an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop, a Photoshop World Guru Award winner, an Art Director, Photographer and Designer. It's probably easier to just say that I am a "Digital Content Creator". My days consist of creating assets and marketing for brands and companies from all over. Everything from retouching, art direction, graphic design, social media, photography, videography, animation and even creating cinemagraphs. Whatever it is you need I can do or at least figure out the best way for you to accomplish your end goal.
I am also very passionate about sharing what I have learned with others. That has brought me to speaking at major design industry conferences. One being the NABShow in Las Vegas about creating cinemagraphs and how to properly shoot them, and then again at the 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 taught webinars for Toronto based Flixel Photos Inc on how to use their software Cinemagraph Pro to easily create them as well. Recently I was a presenter at the 2017 Adobe MAX Conference where I taught Adobe Photoshop tips and tricks for designers in my sessions and then Adobe MAX again in 2018 on Photoshop and retouching techniques.
Over my career i’ve enjoyed working with some incredible clients like the Kansas City Royals, Adobe Systems Inc, the Macallan Distilleries, Red Rock and the Palms Resorts, 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 or my instagram 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 Oregon 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.
