About Robert

I have been a professional photographer for the past six years. My first book, "The Quotidian Hudson" was published on December 12, 2014. My second, "One Quick Blink" was published in July of 2015. I have been a Teaching Assistant at ICP for the past seven years, exhibited in group shows at The Soho Photo Gallery, Galerie Protogie and Photoville, currently freelance with Irvin Simon Photographers and Lifetouch Photography, shoot events including The Bond Conference 2016, as well as working with actors and models on their headshots and portfolios. I started tutoring privately almost five years ago.

I love talking about photography and teaching photography to students of all ages. I am an expert in DSLR operations and Lightroom, proficient in basic Photoshop and InDesign. I love showing people how to leave behind the world of point and shoot and move into the manual mode on their cameras. I will show you everything you need to operate your camera, shoot your best shots, make your best pictures on your computer and then move them onto the internet or print them. I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy but will gladly schedule make up classes. I will come to you - ideal for Lightroom and Photoshop instruction - or we can take a photo walk around various New York City neighborhoods.

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 Lightroom

I have been a Teaching Assistant at The International Center of Photography for the past four years. I have been tutoring private students in Lightroom and basic DSLR operation for the past 2 years. I just published my first artist book, and I have been exhibited in four New York City Gallery Group shows in the past year. I shoot part time for Lifetouch Photography and freelance at Irvin Simon Photographers. I work as a lighting assistant with other photographers on studio shoots.

Lightroom Basics

Robert cleaned up some of my files and then we worked on getting me set up to go forward in a cleaner more organized fashion. He was patient and pleasant and I'm beginning to understand the set-up though I have many more hours to go to totally understand.
