Rob Sheppard has had a longtime and nationally recognized commitment to helping photographers connect with digital imaging technology. He was one of the small group of people who started PCPhoto magazine nearly ten years ago to bring the digital world to photographers on their terms. He was the editor of Outdoor Photographer magazine (second only to Popular Photography in circulation) for 12 years and now is editor at large. He is the author/photographer of more than 25 photo books, including Adobe Camera Raw for Digital Photographers Only and Digital Photography Simplified.
He also writes a column in Outdoor Photographer called "Digital Horizons" and teaches around the country, including workshops for the Palm Beach Photographic Centre, Santa Fe Photography and Digital Workshops,
xTrain.com, and the Great American Photography Workshop group. His Web site for workshops, books, and photo tips is at
