Perfect if you just wanna chill in class (watch a movie, tv shoz, eat etc) and not wanna do much. Plus, he is really nice and cool, his assignments aren't hard and he is really helpful if you need help. You might end up stopping showing up to class but it's okay you won't miss much and it's easy to catch up, just don't exaggerate. Easy and fun class overall.

He's a cool dude, you'll stop attending class and show up every once in awhile to stay in the loop. Easy class. Won't really learn much but whatever..

Bob is a nice guy, and always had some interesting stories to tell in class, however he is not a fantastic teacher (digital photography). For some of the assignments it was unclear what he was looking for, So I had to see him a few times to get things cleared up. He is also the slowest grader I have ever had. It took him over 3 months to post the first grade. He also smokes bogies.

I decided to give him a chance despite the not so stellar reviews. I am so glad I did! Taking his complimentary photography course and enjoying it very much. I know a lot of students are just there for an easy course and many don't bother to show up. If you come to class, pay attention and submit your work all will be well.

Had him for Camera Works. I entered the class in hopes that I would finally learn everything there is to my camera but unfortunately, that really didn't happen. He never remembers which lessons he's supposed to be teaching every class and for that reason many people didn't attend his courses halfway through the semester. Overall a waste of your time.

I had Bob for Camera Works I. He's a great guy, but very repetitive and unfortunately I didn't learn much in his class. He gets behind in his schedule for almost every assignment and we didn't receive our grades until the day of the deadline for teachers to submit them. I liked his class because it was like having a free period and he's clearly very laid back. Do all your assignments (which are very easy) and hand them in on time, even when the deadline isn't clear and you'll do great.

Had him for a photography class (complementary). Super chill teacher and very helpful. A lot of people stopped showing up to class but the class average was pretty high.

Well, I will start off by saying that I could've shown up to none of his classes and still get 90+%, but his fascination for such random things like squirrels and speedboats was making me go to almost all of them. Teaches the same thing over & over & over & over again, so bring your phone to play games on it. Class is very easy, assignments weren't always very clear but the deadline was so soft. Is often late or just not available but he's still a kind and funny man.

People below me complaining are really dumb. Yes, sometimes it is boring since all we do is learn basics, which, by the way, is NORMAL because it is a complementary class so obviously he cant just assume everyone knows everything. I found the class very easy and enjoyable, all assignments are pictures therefore easy marks so you can just have fun with it and not stress about exams or anything. He is super kind, loved him! Also, he rescues and rehabilitates injured squirrels, how sweet is that?

very lenient with assignment deadlines but he takes FOREVER to grade assignments. His complementary class is very basic and you don't really learn anything. the class itself isn't really hands-on, its pretty well all theory and him talking/showing videos. the actual photographs are pretty well taken on your own time (which is pretty disappointing). the class is pointless to go to and therefor made it difficult to stay motivated, but he's a nice guy

Great guy, terrible teacher. You learn nothing in his class. He can't teach because he doesn't know what he's talking about. He's not caught up with technology. All his photoshop methods are long and complicated and he doesn't really know what he's saying and there are much more effective ways than the ones he teaches.

Cam Works: Listen to his instructions and ask for help. Sometimes his grading is tough, but he gives quite a bit of tiem to do the assign. Can also re-do them throughout the semester! :) Good teacher!
