Photographer • Olympus Educator • Tour Leader
Travel and Nature photographer Rob Knight has been a professional artist for nearly thirty years. He’s been a photographer for more than half of that time and an educator since 2010. Rob is an Olympus Educator, Tenba Visual Artist, and a GNARBOX Pro. Rob is an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop Lightroom, and he was a finalist for the National Association of Photoshop Professional’s “Photoshop Guru” award for photography in 2008 and 2009. Rob is best known for his destination photo workshops, his easy-going teaching style and his informative critiques. While he enjoys teaching in a classroom setting, Rob prefers the more hands-on learning offered by working with students on location. Rob founded Creative Immersion Photography Workshops in 2009 to provide all-inclusive photo workshops in Costa Rica. In addition to the popular Costa Rica workshops, Creative Immersion Photography now offers trips in the U.S. to destinations like Route 66 and costal Maine. Email Me.
State of the Art
I have been using mirrorless cameras since before they were cool. If you’re shooting one of those new-fangled mirrorless cameras you’ll feel right at home on my workshops. If you’re using a DSLR, that’s OK too! I’ll even let you try my mirrorless gear to see what the big deal is.
I’ve been a teaching photography and leading workshops since 2009. The local guides that I work with are experienced and professional. My colleagues and I work hard to share our knowledge and help you explore your photographic vision.
My clients and I are fun people and we tend to attract good folks. There is more to a good photography workshop than your time behind the camera. The relationships you build are often the best part of any great travel experience.
Not Exactly Roughing It
I enjoy exploring uncharted territory, but I also like great food and clean rooms. I look for the best restaurants wherever I go, and I will never take you to a roach motel. I joke that my trips are actually culinary tours and we make pictures between meals.
