PHOT205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Super nice guy. If you ask for help he will oblige. But as far as in-class lectures and assignments, he leaves it up to the students to figure it out. He treated us like we already knew how to use the camera as well as he did - in an intro class! Usually very open-minded about assignments, and an easy grader. Never used the book, don't waste the $$

PHOT0000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

If you are pursuing a career in fine art he will not be very helpful. He is disorganized and often misleads students about assignments. He's not all bad though, if you ask for help he gives it, and if he values your work and you happen to misunderstand a project he'll chalk it up to creative liberty. Lastly, a horrid advisor, never answers emails.

Why is he in charge of the practicums? He's useless! He's not nice, not helpful, rarely emails you back - he's ridiculous to have in charge of something like this. Thank god he wasn't in charge of the internships.

Basically, as long as you submit all the prints for your 'criticts' and show up to class (when you don't have open work days) you'll pass! It's super easy and if you need help he'll gladly give it to you. Just ask nicely...and make sure you have all other work submitted before asking. He's a fair grader. Has a lot of open modules but also seems to be a bit disorganized...

PhotoPhot Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Can be really nice, has a weird sense of humor that most people think is him coming off as a jerk, but in reality it's just what he thinks is funny. Not the best photographer though, class really isn't challenging, it's actually quite easy as long as your photos are contrasty enough for him.

Depends on what class you take with him. If you are a Journalism major or PhotoJ he's a good person to work with. If you are just wanting to take an intro he takes it into consideration. If Photography is your major, just go to filmmakers, saves a lot of hassle.

this professor knows what he's doing. as an advisor he also takes your career into consideration, not just throws around what you want to do, he has applicable comments to help you reach your goals. he has also brought many up and coming events and technologies to further students education, in my opinion one of the best & by far my favorite!

I have studied photography for years and usually like his classes. he in my opinion is to easy and lets people for the most part do what they want. if you want a challenge go to pittsburgh filmmakers. if you have a general interist in photography try him.

Chris means well, he really does. VERY nice guy. Certainly not the best teacher, or photogrpaher if I dare say it. And I do, cause it's true. But I would be lying if I said I learned nothing at all in his classes. If you put fourth the effort so does he. A for effort.
