Hello. My name is Robert and I'm your host and guide through the Printmaker Masterclass.

I’ve printed all of my own exhibition prints for the past ten years, and have exhibited them in many galleries and art fairs. I print my own work in order to exercise the maximum amount of creative control. I love the idea of working with something I can touch and feel, something that adds an extra depth and dimension to what I capture, and I’m passionate about sharing that with others.


My field and studio workshops have helped hundreds of photographers like you discover the creative potential that exists in all of us. I want to help you learn and explore the art of printmaking to reach new creative heights.


I’m the author of “Digital Fine Art Printing – Field Guide for Photographers.”


I’m also a Canson Infinity ambassador, a select group of international artists that uphold and exemplify the Canson heritage of paper making since 1557.
