"Part of my job, as Editor of Photoshop User magazine, and president of the world´s largest Photoshop trade association, is to seek out the very best Photoshop instructors in the world today. While there are a lot of people out there who are incedible at Photoshop, very few can teach Photoshop on a world class level. Calvin Hollywood is one of those rare few. He´s taking Photoshop to new places, and introducing new techniques, and new ways of doing things that nobody out there is doing but Calvin. He is truly amazing!"
