Bob Coates – M.Photog.M.Artist.Cr., CPP, EA-ASP
Bob Coates started his official pro career in March of 1995 after picking up and putting down a camera for the previous thirteen years. Based in the Caribbean for his first three years of business, Bob concentrated on commercial photography. Upon his move to Sedona, Arizona, to get out of the path of hurricanes, weddings were expanded and mixed with some commercial work. Coming full circle, Bob is back to concentrating on commercial projects, chasing wildlife and creating an art décor line of images as a ‘Lens Based Artist’ combining photographic images with digital artistry.
Articles for magazines and books authored by Bob are part of how he gives back to the photographic community. In addition, Bob has presented programs from Hawaii to the Caribbean including National platforms at Imaging USA and other venues. Judging local and International print competitions is another way Bob has shares his expertise in the industry.
