Terror on Tillson Street - Night Photography
Romeo, MI hosts a truly amazing Halloween experience. It is a grass roots effort run entirely by the residents of Tillson Street. Check out the links below. This workshop is an opportunity to join Bob and learn how to best photograph such an interesting night event. You will want to have a good tripod, a normal to wide lens for the overall scene, and a telephoto would be nice to close in on the many interesting details. The crowds can be substantial, so plan to have as compact a kit as possible, and be prepared to be patient. If it should happen to drizzle/ light rain, we will still plan to go. The colors and lights can be even better with wet pavement. If the rain gets to be substantial we will seek shelter until it gets reasonable. I have rain covers available for sale, either disposable, or some very nice Storm Jacket brand reusable covers. Call if you are interested. (248)[masked] We will meet in the Dairy Queen parking lot at 6:30. Parking is catch as catch can, just use common sense. I read that there are several lots that provide parking for a small donation. Invite a photography friend to sign up and join you then you can carpool. You can always reach out to us if you want help finding a ride partner. We prefer you pay via Square. Email us at [masked]. We will send you an invoice for $40. This will register you for the class! You can also RSVP directly in MeetUp, it just costs us more in fees. Pure Michigan featured it, and they also have their own website,

What we're about

I am a professional photographer based in Rochester, Michigan.

I have been involved in photography since the late 1970's. I won't get into all the details here, but I've owned and shot Minolta, Olympus, Canon and most recently Nikon cameras. I subscribe to the philosophy that the best camera is the one in my hands at the moment.
This group is intended to bring together people that love photography but may not be getting the results that they are capable of creating. I will be offering workshops to address a variety of topics, and I welcome suggestions or requests for workshops if the one you want isn't listed.

I charge $40 to workshop participants and workshops typically last at least 3 hours, with time split between lecture/ demonstration and hands-on participation. I also offer 90 minute private lessons for $90 or Buy 4 and get the 5th free.

My photographic interests span the gamut from portraiture, to landscapes to macro, to architecture, sports and beyond. If you think it is interesting, I probably will also.
In addition to the capture side of the equation (capture meaning the actual taking of pictures) I am also very adept at post processing (meaning everything involved once the image has been taken).

I do my own printing in-house on an Epson 7900 24" wide-format professional ink-jet printer. My primary software of choice is Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Photoshop Extended. I am currently working in CS4, but once I am confident that any major bugs have been sussed out of CS5 I will be making the move.

I LOVE photography and am incredibly fortunate to be able to make my livelihood doing what I love. It hasn't always been this way, I worked for 24 years at a REAL job, but let me tell you, I have never worked as long or as hard as I have since making photography my career. Having said that I wouldn't change a thing! So if you love photography and want to move to the next level join in.
