I didn't have Crouch as a photography teacher but as an art teacher. Maybe it was because he liked my work or what but it felt like we were kind of friends? Like a really awkward friendship. Not a lot of people like him but he was great in my opinion. He was very encouraging with my art. Definitely try to get 7th period art.
He is honestly the worst teacher I have ever had. I took his photography class which was somewhat easy, but he was terrible at teaching. He just gave you a camera, showed you some shots, and expected you to take shots that looked just like those. His Advanced Photo class is absolutely garbage. He gives you a project, and expects you to know how to do it. He picks favorites, and only tells those students about it. He told me about a new project, the day before it was due, and told other weeks b4.
Very introverted and somewhat awkward around students he doesn't know well, Mr. Crouch's classes are rather boring if you aren't a student he's singled out and selected as one of his favorites. He's a genuinely nice person to talk to, but in a teaching environment I feel like he'd do a lot better with a very small class. I learned very little from his Photography class, and I've heard similar sentiments from others who've had him.
Had him for digital photography. I think he himself is great at photography (wouldn't know about filmmaking), he is a great teacher and fairly easy going, but I think he is a bit too introverted to be a teacher. He can be helpful when you need help, but being in his class you can kinda tell he isn't 100% comfortable having so many people around him.
He is a cool guy, and his classes are mostly easy (if you put a little work into them), unforuneately, his classes go exactly like this: "Here is a camera, go shoot something like this. When your'e done, put them together like this". There is no teaching how how to create professional-looking results. Took his film class twice, and I never was able to create anything the average joe could. Had to teach myself how to use After Affects and Premiere. He is, selective to which students he likes too.
The epitome of easy-going. The crown of clutter. The prince of procrastination. The analogy of awesome.
Mr. Crouch enjoys picking favorites and worshiping them, everyone else gets either ignored or constantly told they are inadequate. Safe to say, he is not my favorite. But my sibling had a great experience with him, so I guess it just depends on the student them-self.
Pretty cool, he knows what hes doing, and through the projects you do you learn a lot,
Digital Photography was a very interesting and fun class. I enjoyed having Mr. Crouch, it's just sometimes, he gets a little mad in the class.
This guy rocks! You just have to understand his humor! He doesn't make things too hard, people just aren't productive in class.
