About Robert

I have 15 years of college level experience in teaching Photography, Digital Art and related courses.

I have taught many courses at the college level including: Introduction to Photoshop, Advanced Photoshop, Fundamentals of Photography, Photographic Design, Coloring Printing and Design, Portfolio and History of Photography

As an instructor I feel it is necessary to not only instruct students in the technical side of the medium, but to inspire their creativity and imagination and to promote critical thinking. One of the first statements that I say in class is that the best camera is the one between your ears. This statement reinforces the idea that it is the person, not the camera that is in control and that the human mind supplies the imagination and vision to create successful photographs.

Whether I am teaching beginner’s courses or a course for the most advanced students in the curriculum, my teaching methods remain the same. I believe that a teacher’s responsibility is to encourage students to explore their own creativity and to challenge them to push themselves hard and to strive for a sense of pride in their work, not settling for an easy way but to endeavor to take risks in the safety of the classroom environment where I am not there to make judgments on them, but to help guide them in their work. I feel a teacher should not mold students into copies of themselves, but set each student in their own individual paths.

As a tutor I can help tailor to your individual needs and set you on the right course for success.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

I have experience teaching Adobe Photoshop at the college level for over 14 years. My teaching philosophy is to help students learn in a positive atmosphere how to achieve their goals within the creative arts with a hands on approach to the subject.

Drawing

My undergraduate degree (BFA) is from the University of the Arts. In my freshman year the Foundations program was very rigorous in learning the fundamentals of art, Drawing, 2D Design and 3D Design. Drawing is the building block of the visual arts and I have studied drawing as an undergrad, continuing studies student (where I student human anatomy and did copies of Old Masters drawings) and as an elective in graduate school.

I encourage my photography students to study drawing and utilize it to learn the basics of perspective, composition and form.

Photography

I have my Master's degree in Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology. I have 15 years' experience teaching photography and digital art courses at the college level. The courses have included introductory classes to the most advance in the curriculum. I am an active photographer and retoucher in the freelance work force. My tutoring methods are to make learning a pleasant experience and to make students understand and improve on their skills and understanding of the medium.
