Meet Steven Gotz
Creative COW Web Writer, Contributing Editor, Author
: Steven Gotz
Steven is a video enthusiast who started out as just another telecommunications Systems Engineer who spent too much time in front of a PC and needed a creative outlet. When he discovered that shooting video while on vacation could be combined with some of his PC skills, he took to editing like a duck takes to water. And he decided that taking his wife on vacations to wonderful places so she could relax and he could shoot video was a win-win situation. He still sits in front of a PC way too much, but now it is for something the whole family can enjoy.
Suffering through using many different Non-Linear Editing tools, he finally latched on to Adobe Premiere 6.0 and never looked back. But as he learned more and more about video editing, his personal list of favorite web sites soon grew too large to sort through, and he created his web site dedicated to the users of Adobe Premiere (since rededicated to the Adobe Premiere Pro User). Steven sometimes wonders if his hobby has changed from shooting and editing to helping other people learn to edit, however, he thoroughly enjoys the interaction with forum members and visitors to his web site and checks in here at the Cow as often as possible.
Steven received contributing writer credit for the PeachPit Press book "Premiere Pro 1.5 for Windows : Visual QuickPro Guide", providing the information required to upgrade the previous version to Premiere Pro 1.5. He also produced Learning Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5 for the lynda.com online learning library.™
