I teach "BEGINNING STUDIO LIGHTING".

...But it's not just about the equipment... It's about "looking" and especially "seeing".

I believe that when a student has something important to "say", and feels compelled to share it with others, that student will find a way to say it. If the language of photography happens to be the conduit, I try to help that student apply the use of artificial light, thoughtful composition, and a sense of the camera's power to augment the ideas and concepts he or she wants to use in expressing those thoughts.

1.) Professional photographer for 36 years...(Early pioneer of "informal portraiture", lecturer, illustrative photography for books, record labels, air lines, food, electronics, hospitals, consumer products, catalogues, ad agencies, and corporate clients worldwide).

2.) I work with "steel" as a sculptural medium. (Exhibited: De Young Museum, Newly renovated S.F. Public Library, Moscone Center, Misc. galleries, corporations and private collections.)

3.) Struggling (through photography) to move away from photographing the figure, (the traditional nude) in it's "romantic" form. .

4,) My vice is eating sushi

sport: Fencing,
Love to cook,
Going to legitimate theatre, art museums & galleries

Department Chair 2008 - 2011
Full-time Professor 2000 - Present; Tenured in 2004
Adjunct Professor 1992 - 2000

Success cannot be assessed by a measure of academic grades and technical expertise alone. Communication skills, cooperative endeavor, personal and professional conduct, responsibility, sensitivity to diverse needs, service, and enthusiasm are all crucial in the larger sense of learning. Passion for learning, commitment to excellence, and confidence in self are the qualities I attempt to model for my students.

Professor Raskin has been a participant in the student mentoring program through the Office of Mentoring and Service Learning since 2002 and participated in the SCANS program 2001 - 2005. He has organized and coordinated the Photography Department's Gallery Obscura, developed and maintained the Photography Department web site, and was Department Chair from 2008-2011.

Mr. Raskin's photography has been exhibited locally and nationally since 1978.
