Mike Abbott is an Adobe Certified Instructor. He trains users in Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere Pro and 3D CGI.
The software I train on is the software I use
And most of it I’ve used for quite some time. In fact I’ve got over twenty years experience as a designer, illustrator and digital imaging specialist. Over those years my work has included design for print, web and screen; technical and infographic illustration; motion graphics, photographic retouching and compositing, 3D CGI and more. That means that when you call me, you’ll be hiring a trainer who knows his stuff – and how to apply it.
More than know-how
Good training is about more than knowledge, application and relevance. It’s about communication; listening and understanding, character and integrity, enthusiasm, empathy and flexibility. The best way to judge my performance in these areas is to read the testimonials you’ll find throughout this site.
A first-class experience
My training clients range from corporate users through to individuals, from professionals to enthusiasts. The training may range from a new user introduction to high-level master-class. No matter who or what, I always aim to deliver a first-class experience.
