Very easy class, learned a lot about film and how to use a 35mm camera,techniques and more. He was very helpful and funny as well. Seemed like he really enjoyed our class, he was nice to everyone and helpful as well. Easy pass and you definitely learn a lot, lectures can be boring at times but its fun when it comes down to getting in the lab!

The seriously question his man's taste level, he is very VERY much dated. Super boring, shows no interest in his students. The critiques are painful and just consist of his opinions and not of the class. Easy class, I have the feeling his bar is set very low.

His teaching methods are very dated. He stereotypes and seems very uninterested in his students. If you can take the class with another professor I highly recommend you do so.

He doesn't thoroughly explain the steps and misses out mentioning the common mistakes students do in the editing process. He has no patience for the slower paced students. He does not seem to like his job.

Digital Photo: Percy knows what he is talking about but he is very linear. He knows how to teach very specific things, but he doesn't provide general information that everyone should know. He basically teaches out of the reader so you don't have to go to everyday. He talks slow.

doesn't look at assignments, gives everything a's or b's, but when it comes down to the final, nitpicks and gives c's, unless you are a woman with big **** or a teacher's pet and you get an a. no textbook, shows boring videos that everyone sleeps through, gets mad if you ask him how to do things. sometimes doesn't come to class for 2 weeks!

The other comments are right - gives A's to almost everything, gives B's to crappy work other professors would make you redo. Half the class cheated and turned in digital prints and he was too stupid to notice. Shows ghetto videos from the 70's that are irrelevant to the scope of the class. Can't even explain techniques. Take Martin instead.

He gets frustrated when students ask questions and makes you feel stupid. Not very helpful with the projects.

has no apparent interest in student growth. gives everyone who does the assignment an A. doesn't seem like he wants to be there. i took him for traditional film based color photo and I got the impression his interest was in digital, which is great, but not what I was there for. showed a lot of cheesy videos, didn't lecture much.

The TA taught the class. Dull lecture. He'll eventually warm up to you. Easy A. Too laid back with assignments. Doesn't challenge you too much. However, he played awesome jazz and latin music during workshops. You have to respect a man who knows his jazz.

Mr. Personality!!! NOT! This teacher does not have patience with his students, does not have the desire to explain an assignment twice if student does not understand. You can't talk to the guy for advice- he will give you a dirty look if you do. Easy class though, just do everything he asked to do and show up for the Pizza at the END@

Percey is a very intresting teacher, in one part his teaching has skill, but his socialbility is some what lacking... plus he really... really... really... hates stupid questions... I learned that the hard way... Ouch. He's a decent teacher... and worth taking.

Very knowledgable about traditional photo techniques and brings that into the digital photo world. Makes sure you come away with a solid foundation of photo, not just knowledge of photoshop. He doesn't smile much, but once you realize he's just awkward socially, you'll have no problems.

Knows a lot and has experience, but a little bit dull to listen to, sometimes. He has a hearing problem, so be clear when you ask questions, or you'll get unclear answers.

If you're a cute, asian female, flirt & you'll pass this class easily. Everyone else, be ready for some serious work and he'll repeat himself, he'll repeat himself, he'll repeat himself until you can't stand it anymore!
