Photography Classes

Sharing my expertise and knowledge has always been important to me. I taught photography and visual communications for 20 years at the University of Windsor as well as a number of years in adult education. Simply put: I love to share photography.

Lightroom and Photoshop
Only one seat remaining

May 1, 8 and 15, 2019
6:30 – 9:00 PM each evening
in Walkerville, ON

This is an exciting series of three classes on how to use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop (Lr & Ps) to process and enhance photographs. I will provide images for participants to use that are the same images I will use to demonstrate the techniques. You will be able to follow along step-by-step. I will show how to process images in Lightroom and then bring them to Photoshop to enhance and create magic with the images including how to output your photographs.

Before and after Lightroom

The image as a JPEG file from the camera is on the left and on the right is the image after I enhanced the RAW file  in Lightroom. The image on the right is much closer to the feel of the moment when I created the photograph.

You will need a laptop computer with Lightroom and Photoshop installed. The same photographs I use will be supplied to you at the first class so you can work along with the demonstrations. Total cost for the three classes is only $199 plus HST ($224.87). There are only five seats available and registration is on a first-come first-served basis. Email me at today to register.



Moving Off AUTO

2 ½ hours Last offered February 20, 2019
Next Class will be scheduled for Fall 2019

If you have a new camera or have always left your camera on “auto” this is the course for you. I explain how the five basic parts of any camera work and how they contribute to making good photographs.

“Digital photography without Photoshop is like having a word processor without a spell checker.”


5 Computer Techniques to Improve Your Photography

2 ½ hours – Not scheduled at this time

With digital photography your darkroom is your computer. Bob shows you how to improve your photographs with Photoshop Elements, organizing your library, colour management, high dynamic range images and composition techniques. You should be able to navigate your computer and have Photoshop Elements installed before coming to this class.

And here’s all the “small print” in a large type format:

All class and series prices are plus HST. It will be added when you register.

We reserve the right to cancel or postpone any classes for any reason (including but not limited to weather, instructor illness or enrollment levels). As a registered participant you will be notified of any changes made using the contact information provided from your registration. Refunds will be made if we cancel classes.

If you are taking any of the Photoshop classes, you need to bring your own computer to follow along and work on images in class. Be sure to have the program(s) loaded and working on your computer before class. Working with the software before you come to class will help you enjoy the class more. 

If you have any questions, feel free to write me at or call 519.563.7118.
