Regular readers of this blog will recognise the name A.J.Wood; a great friend of mine from Dallas, Texas who runs Media Cats; a Digital Media Training Company and also who just happens to be the one of the most incredible instructors in all things Adobe:

I first met A.J. at a Photoshop World Convention in Las Vegas a few years back and we’ve remained great friends ever since. I can remember being sat together during a workshop by Photographer and Photoshop Hall of Famer Eddie Tapp, and watching A.J. tinkering away on his MacBook Pro effortlessly creating all manner of designs from scratch.

A.J.’s knowledge of Photoshop and Lightroom to name but a few of the Adobe products he’s mastered is mind blowing and that combined with a natural flair for teaching makes him someone I would suggest that if you don’t know already then you really need to.

I’m constantly in a state of learning and as a consequence every day despite the work I have to get through, will always give up some time to learning more tips and techniques in Photoshop and Lightroom. Sure nowadays there seems to be unlimited places to learn and pick up some tips and techniques but I always start in the same places; anything from the guys at the N.A.P.P. and Kelby Training … and A.J.

Seriously, if you haven’t already then be sure to head on over to A.J.’s website [Link] and his constantly updated YouTube page. Incidentally, don’t forget to Subscribe to his YouTube page so that you’ll be notified each and every time he uploads a new gem of a video.

Oh and if you’re into the social media scene, then be sure to add A.J. to your Facebook [Link] and Twitter [Link] feeds; hands down I guarantee you’ll learn so much from him and you’ll see why I’m real proud to call him a friend.

Incidentally, both A.J. and myself are regular contributors on the TipSquirrel website [Link]; a superb resource dedicated to teaching Photoshop, Lightroom and Photoshop Elements so I guess that makes us offically ‘Nuts’ 🙂

      No worries mate; you’re more than welcome.

    Hi Glyn,
    I’ve been following the Adobe Wan for a while now (since you mentioned him as part of a #FF post) and I must say I really like his tutorial style / manner – very informative and easy to follow (much like yourself ;-)).
    Oh and for those who don’t know, A.J. also has an iPhone app (called “Adobe Talk” – it’s free!) which makes it really easy to follow & keep up-to-date with his work.

      @David…Totally agree with you mate; A.J. has a really captivating teaching style 🙂
      Cheers, Glyn

      >Thanks for mentioning his iPhone App
