Adam T. Hunter, M.Photog, Cr., Adobe Certified Photoshop Expert


I specialize in Photoshop, Lightroom, digital post processing, and color. My passion is teaching photographers how to create high quality images in less time so they can make more money and have more time to spend with family and friends.

I learned about photography during the 12 years I spent working for master photographer Jon Read. Read Photography is a high volume studio in eastern Iowa and I was the head of their digital department and a photographer. I spent most of my time in front of a computer and I estimate that I have worked on over a million photos during my career. All that hard work and experience has paid off with dream jobs and national photography awards.

Early in my career I became a regular convention speaker early and that is where I discovered my passion for teaching. In the fall of 2012, I left Read Photography to become an instructor for the famous Hawkeye Community College Photography Program in Waterloo, Iowa. Some of my students have gone on to shoot for Adidas, Nike, Hot Topic, AllRecipes.com, Better Homes and Gardens and many more top brands. With so many new photographers joining our profession, I believe photography education has never been more important.

Thank you for the opportunity to speak to your group and share my passion for photography and teaching.
