One reason why Sam and Tom Robbins are extraordinary teachers is their modesty. They are definitely focused out!
Sam just told me today that she and her husband Tom were featured in the December 2011 Issue 22 of Focus Magazine. Click on the link and then scroll down the PDF to page 76 to view their lush, magical, black and white images (that they develop themselves in their studio darkroom) and read about what motivates them. They are also superb digital photographers who know how to manipulate the camera settings to make the best shots.
As accomplished photographers AND experienced instructors, they not only practice and impart their art, they are recognized for it. Their creative approach to the subject and technical expertise combine to make stunning photographs.
Sam and Tom Robbins lead Oaxaca Photography Workshop: Market Towns and Artisan Villages this summer starting on June 29. We have TWO SPACES LEFT. See their website: www.robbinsx2.com
