About Robin

I am a working Commercial Photographer, Videographer and Photography Instructor. I have taught photography for over 25 years in university, summer camp and middle school. I am an expert digital photographer and teacher. My students range in age from 10 years old to 75. And I hold a BFA in Photography from the Philadelphia College of Art.

I love every aspect of photography and video and I LOVE to teach. I enjoy talking to people and I am
comfortable with kids and adults. Teaching allows me to talk and think about photography, I learn
from my students while I help them get more comfortable with their equipment and vision. I love the technical side of photography as well as the interpretive (artistic) side. You need to understand how a camera works as you move forward towards your artistic vision.


I use Photoshop every day in my work and I teach it in a way that makes it friendly, not overwhelming.
Photoshop can be a challenge if you are learning as an adult. I teach in a visual way and I believe you must make mistakes before you move forward. Mistakes are necessary because you can't learn without them.

Every student who contacts me will get to discuss what it is you want to learn. And of course I will provide references. So let's talk.

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.

Photography

I hold a BFA in Photography from the Philadelphia College of Art. I have over 25 years experience teaching photography in university and middle schools. I teach in a visual way which allows the student to better understand the technical side of photography.
I am patient and relate extremely well to children and adults. I understand that adults are not digital natives
and learn differently than people who are.

Video Production

I have been producing video for over 6 years in the healthcare fields. I directed and editing a video "on line textbook" for the American Academy of Pediatrics. I produced over 400 videos for this project. It is currently on line. I am an accomplished camera operator and lighting expert. I am a successful director and work extremely well with people.
