Dawn K If you want to learn how to get the most out of your camera take the basic class. Even if you don’t think you need a basic class you’ll be amazed at what you’ll learn. Bob is so patient and teaches at whatever level you need. You’ll leave so much more confident, ready to have more fun with your camera.
Bob and his team were our photographers for my July 2018 wedding. I can NOT say enough amazing things about the photos and his team. They were at my fiancé and I’s different spots as we got ready, our church, and reception. They were professional, on time, communicated with my groom and I. during the planning process they communicated with us often and made sure we had everything that we needed – photos are AMAZING I can’t say enough amazing things! A MUST hire!
We have had senior photos taken with Bob for all three of our daughters now and I cannot recommend him more highly. He made them feel at ease, which certainly made for the most beautiful photos of them. He and Julie are professional, clearly knowledgeable and talented, accommodating, and helpful, going above and beyond to respond to our daughters’ wishes and meet deadlines. The end result was individualized and stunning every time.
Knowledgeable and patient instructor!
As in past photo safaris, this trip to Yosemite national Park was excellent! The travel planning, and photographic expertise were superior.
– Robert DiTommaso Photography Hi Marilyn, Yes, another great trip. Thank you for your continued support and participation. I had a very enjoyable time. Bob
I attended the 6-Hour Basic DSLR Workshop and I am no longer afraid of my camera. I’m looking forward to taking more workshops with Bob.
– Robert DiTommaso Photography Hi Sharon, Thanks for the review. The more you experiment with your camera, there comfortable you will become. Bob
Bob’s workshops are always informative and fun. He always demonstrates exactly what he is talking about. In addition to learning something new there is always new inspiration gained.
– Robert DiTommaso Photography Hi Mike, Thanks for the review, glad to hear you always find some new inspiration. Bob
– Robert DiTommaso Photography Thanks
I was quite impressed with the class. I thought Bob did a great job. It was a great overview for people of different skill levels. If you’re completely new to photography, I could see some of the topics being difficult to grasp. I have had some experience through the years with topics such as aperture, ISO, shutter speed, etc., but the organization of the material was helpful to reinforce some of what I knew, fill in gaps, and correct misconceptions. It was also nice having someone knowledgeable on various pieces of equipment, so even if you have some experience but are switching gear, you may find the class useful just for that purpose alone. I would even recommend someone borrow a DSLR if they are interested in purchasing a camera. What you learn may help you decide on a camera that is appropriate for you. Anyways, if you’re in doubt, the class is a great value. I strongly recommend it.
– Robert DiTommaso Photography Hi Brian, Good to hear you enjoyed the class so much. Thank you for sharing your experience so others can get a feel for the experience. Bob
I have taken multiple classes with Bob, and this one is another that exceeded my expectations. The level of detail, the multitude of examples and demonstrating the step by step editing process was just right. Highly recommend this course.
– Robert DiTommaso Photography Hi Chris, So glad you enjoyed the Lightroom training. I appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts. Bob
My wife, daughter (15) and I had a great learning experience together attending the Lightroom presentation. It’s often a challenge to teach to different age groups with different levels of experience. Bob did a good job with this by explaining terms and demonstrating concepts through slides, discussion and live software use. We did not feel we needed our laptops, rather it was good to follow along and take a few notes in his handouts.
– Robert DiTommaso Photography Hi Chris, Glad it worked out well for everyone. It was great seeing you and your family. Bob.
Robert put together a fantastic presentation based on his vast Photography business experiences. You can see why his business is so successful. His energy, passion, knowledge, and experiences was framed in a way that you not only could digest everything but pick out special points that you could apply to your own business situation. I’m very pleased with the outcome of this workshop. Tom
– Robert DiTommaso Photography Thank you for attending Ronda, and I appreciate your leaving a review. Bob
I’ve attended multiple classes taught by Robert DiTommaso and they all have been extremely helpful to me as I learned valuable things that have helped me become more familiar and knowledgeable with Photography, Software, equipment and the business of photography itself. He makes things easy to understand and has lots of helpful tips. I have also hired him for individual lessons as well and intend to use his resources further.
Great classes, expert level help, answers questions thoroughly. A definite A+++++
Bob does a excellent job of putting together creative meetup workshops from technical setups of your camera, composition, lighting, editing images, travel arrangements and accommodations. If you haven’t experienced a workshop with Bob, your missing the chance to expand your knowledge and creativity of your photography skills along with a fun time and interesting challenges and places to photograph.

“I called Bob on very short notice for some pictures. I did not have any hard & fast rules so Bob’s direction and guidance was really appreciated.
I felt really comfortable with Bob’s process; he & Julie helped to create a fun & casual atmosphere.
My pictures turned out just beautiful!
Thank you, Bob
I’d recommend you to anyone.”
“My family and I would like to thank you very much for the beautiful photos of the family. The large family picture looks wonderful in our family room. The others we will put up in due time. It was a great experience and you and Bob were extremely professional.

Basic Digital Photography – Exposure, Depth of Field & White Balance
- Bob did a great job of breaking down the basic elements of photography through terminology, examples and in-class practice. We also learned about the relationship of these elements and how effecting one leads to changes in the others.
This is a great class for those just starting out in photography or those wanting to get more out of their DSLR than just shooting in automatic mode all the time. (KD)
- This was a smaller group which made for more “hands on” experience. Bob is very patient and makes a huge effort to help in the understanding of the exposure triangle,as well as other photographic mysteries. Obviously not in a hurry to end class and always available for further questions after class. (JB)
