Testimonials

Portrait Photographer

“I called Bob on very short notice for some pictures. I did not have any hard & fast rules so Bob’s direction and guidance was really appreciated.

I felt really comfortable with Bob’s process; he & Julie helped to create a fun & casual atmosphere.

My pictures turned out just beautiful!

Thank you, Bob

I’d recommend you to anyone.”

Thanks again!

Basic – Landscape / Nature Photography Workshop

Basic Digital Photography – Exposure, Depth of Field & White Balance

  • Bob did a great job of breaking down the basic elements of photography through terminology, examples and in-class practice. We also learned about the relationship of these elements and how effecting one leads to changes in the others.
    This is a great class for those just starting out in photography or those wanting to get more out of their DSLR than just shooting in automatic mode all the time.  (KD)
  • This was a smaller group which made for more “hands on” experience. Bob is very patient and makes a huge effort to help in the understanding of the exposure triangle,as well as other photographic mysteries. Obviously not in a hurry to end class and always available for further questions after class. (JB)
