Feel free to bring a laptop with a recent version of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, or just sit back and take notes to practice from later. As an Adobe Community Professional Mark will be happy to answer questions and demonstrate solutions to problems he is regularly asked about. Bring your cameras as well in case you want to shoot our setup scenes that we'll use to demo with.
Mark Heaps snapped his first picture at the age of four. Then he picked up a guitar, a skateboard, and a can of spray paint, and kickflipped his way into the world of art. Today, he's a professional photographer, an Adobe Certified Professional, an Adobe Community Professional, and a Senior Development Specialist at Duarte Inc, where he works with some of the world's most recognized brands. He's a sucker for good tattoos, live music, and ketchup on most everything. Mark currently snaps pictures in Austin, where he lives with his wife, daughter, son, two dogs, and a pantry full of ketchup.
Mark is a contributing author to many publishers and websites including PSDTuts, AdobePress, Peachpit and has lectured for Adobe's "Ask A Pro" series of webinars. His work has been used by Guitar Player magazine, Texas Music Magazine, Apple Computer, Google, WalMart, Adobe and many others. Mark specializes in developing creative professionals working in commercial environments. With over 7 years experience teaching privately at colleges in Silicon Valley, writing more than 50 curriculums for various academia and private training institutions, his passion for digital imaging might only be surpassed by two things -- ketchup, and his kids. Not necessarily in that order.
