Studio Rental:

Bob StevensyyyyMy name is Bob Stevens and I am a working photographer. My customer base is mostly corporate and organizational but, as I believe these shots show, I have a great zeal for the art of photography.

I have also taught photography, both at the University of Maryland and privately at my camera store, and have been a guest lecturer at numerous camera clubs and photo expositions.

Being a native of Washington, D.C. provides great logistical help in photographing subjects around the nation’s capital. My familiarity with the city’s layout, venues, and travel routes, etc., saves my clients anguish and money. They never wonder where I am or how long it will take me to find them. Being in this area also opens many opportunities to work for dynamic and wonderfully diverse organizations.

Having said that, it is not unusual for me to travel with – or to – customers around the globe. I have traveled as far as Bangkok, Thailand and Honolulu, Hawaii on commercial assignments. In other words, travel is no problem and, if viewed as an overall cost item, such jobs are usually less expensive than trying for an unknown quantity at the event destination.

Comments to “Robert Stevens”

  1. First, I would like to say thank you for offering these workshops. This was an eye opener for me and my fiancé and we learned some great tools and controls on how to take our photography and videography to the next level. I was so impressed with Robert not because of his age but because of his ability to really teach and take his time with us. He was very personable and his life story that he shared with us made it even more worthwhile. We will be taking more classes with him on the private side as we have some projects we would like his expertise on.

  2. Hi there. It was great. My son really loved the instructor. We’d love to do it again sometime.

  3. Thank you for the opportunity to attend the workshop. Bob Stevens was great to chat with. I look forward to future workshops and continuing my photographic journey.

  4. I hope your day went well because my day went great. Bob was a very nice and educated guy who sat with me, talked about my camera, and even took me out to put into practice what he had taught me. I can say that I got some beautiful shots. He was a great guy overall and we had great conversations, both related to photography and other topics. This was a great experience for me and I appreciate the time and effort he put in to help me.

  5. Rene and I really enjoyed the class with Bob. He’s a wonderful teacher, and we felt we got a lot out of it.

  6. Bob was a terrific help giving me a wide-angle look at photography as well as in the weeds helpful hints about the kinds of photos I’ll be taking. As a result of this class, I have a renewed confidence in my ability to not just improve my photographs but to keep learning as I go. It was a fun three hours and I’m raring to take improved shots!

    If Digital Photo Academy had an option of a star ratings, Bob would get a 5 star review out of a possible 5 stars as the best.

  7. The session was very insightful. Bob was patient in his teaching and generous in his technical and artistic advice. I definitely feel more empowered to better use my camera, but most importantly to notice the various elements in the setting/landscape.

  8. The class was great, I learned so much about my camera. Bob was awesome. I didn’t get the chance to do the second half of class because something personal popped up and I unfortunately had to leave. Thank you so much for all your help signing up! I very much enjoyed it.

    Hope all is well especially with all the craziness going on!

  9. Took this in Washington, D.C. Bob was great. He’s very knowledgeable and I learned so much.

  10. Hello! Thank you so much for the wonderful class on Saturday! We had a great time and enjoyed listening to your tips from your expertise! Once we upload our pictures, I will send along!
    In the meantime, do you mind sending me a few names of photographers you had mentioned that might be good for wedding photography? Thank you again!!

  11. This class was exceptional and tailored to the needs of the students. I would sign up for another one in a heartbeat. What a fun way to learn!

  12. I had an amazing time and definitely learned a ton about my camera and how to operate it now in varying light and looking at things with a more artistic eye.

    Bob was great in both of my classes, in the morning with me and my camera and then on the walk about.

    Hands down, amazing Saturday for me and much appreciated.

  13. The class was awesome. Bob is an amazing teacher. Explained everything in a way you can grasp even the most complex concepts of photography. Would take a class with him again at anytime.

  14. Took this class in Washington DC. We met outside of the Botanical Garden. Bob was everything you would want in an instructor. He explained the basics, answered all our questions, and showed us how to better use our digital cameras. I loved it!!!!

  15. The class was amazing. I was afraid that my lack of knowledge would either slow the class down or I wouldn’t understand a thing. Bob was great! He met everyone at their level and explained things so everyone could understand. I really enjoyed the class and plan to let others interested in photography know all about it.

  16. Bob was knowledgeable and fun. He explained concepts very simply. The class was perfect for beginners, I’m looking forward to taking another.

  17. “The class was great! Looking forward to my second one on august 25th!”

  18. “Bob is an excellent instructor. He shared his knowledge on the do’s and don’ts on how to use the camera so that one could take the perfect picture. Due to his patience and instructions, I am no longer afraid to use my camera. ”


  19. “I took a composition in the field class in Washington, DC. My class was yesterday in Eastern Market. My instructor, Robert Stevens, led me and four other students through a very helpful and interesting class. I am a rank novice as far as using the full potential of my equipment. I shoot with a Canon Powershot SX10 IS. It is not an SLR, and everyone else at the class had a fairly impressive array of SLR digital equipment. Bob never had me do anything lesser or made me feel at all underpowered for his lessons. He challenged me, and he really started me in a new direction.

    I went to the class to capture some basics about what I could do with my camera out of the automatic settings. I took a small step into a larger world with his help, and I really appreciate it. My photos and my technique will need a lot of expiramenting and work, but he really helped me start. I also greatly appreciated that he gave us his contact information for follow up questions. He was a very generous professional, and I learned a lot.”
