Is Photoshop a dirty word? An evil tool? Recently, I had the opportunity to chat with Mark Heaps, a Professional Photographer, an Adobe Certified Professional, and Graphic Designer at Duarte Design where he has worked with some of the world’s most recognizable brands. Mark works as a presentation designer, helping to build presentations you might see at a major conferences like SXSW or CES, but Mark has experience doing just about everything. So it was great to hear his thoughts on several interesting topics.

During our conversation we discussed whether or not photographers truly embrace Photoshop, whether or not Photoshop is an evil tool, whether or not it is better to be a "jack of all trades" or a specialist, should you always charge for your work, and much more. Please take a moment to review this 35-minute interview, and enjoy!
