Just a dude from a regular old good American dysfunctional family. I am not a photographer like everyone else. Just a guy with a camera phone. Be careful if you steal my photos. They are cryptically embedded with pornographic material that links back to dirty nasty porn sites with millions of popups. They will transform when used.

"What do you say to the person who gave me my name? TIO…
...and what do you say to the person who started my group… “TIO Seal of Approval”
I guess the words are “Thank You” but these words are not enough…
I want to write history correct… I will say this… because of your love… tonight I write these words… our love for family and self… are our bond… I hope to one day shake your hand and to hug you as family…
I love your passion for shooting and most of all your philosophy…
“Photos are supposed to stir some emotion in us. Just like music is supposed to stir up images in our minds ;-)”
You have always been the dominant night shooter… and you have the same philosophy as myself…
“To Control The Light is To Control Photography”
You’re truly an accomplish shooter… and I would love to shoot with you one day…
You will always be my family…
Love you Hijo...

"I would love to mimic this man's style but I have no freakin clue where he is. I have been a huge fan for a while an I have come to realize its not only his subject matter but the creative way he approaches a shot that really does it for me. It suggests he is sometimes playful and willing to experiment. Any time you are in Buffalo get at me I will show you the sights"

Matt Grans Photography says:
"Bob's excitement shines through most every image he posts here and I have been using many of his San Francisco images as desktop wallpapers on my computer cause they are so picture postcard perfect. He has a keen eye for perspective and always seems to find that unusual, left of center, one of a kind shot that other photographers would just pass by unaware. That's his magic. He is also a fine light painter and though he'll deny it, is an awesome portrait photographer too. A one of a kind!"

"i guess i could say that bob was one of the first points of contact for me on flickr.i dont think i need to mention the fact that you could choose a lot worse people to share photos, ideas, laughs and general all round goodness with.i have never met the man, however one day i would love to sit down and share a beer with him.which i will do the next time i find myself in his mighty city!
all in all, the man takes bloody fantastic photos! some are classics, some are edgy........ a lot stand out from the crowd, just like i'm sure he does stand out from the crowd in life! i might add that the man inspires me!
bottom line, a gentleman, a man with a soul and kick ass photographer.. hats off mate!"

"Bob’s got a zest for life,
A heart of gold,
And a story to be told,
Not to mention a wicked sense of humor.
Don’t let the pompadour hairstyle and the uncensored thoughts fool you. He might have well inspired a few classic riffs too: Raw, Do You Wanna Dance, I Wanna Be Sedated, It’s Alive, Don’t Want to Grow Up, Mondo Bizarro, Halfway to Sanity, Pleasant Dreams, We’re A Happy Family ;~D
Thanks Bob for sharing your amazing photos. And thanks Tammy for making it all possible :)*
Often while traveling with a camera we arrive just as the sun slips over the horizon of a moment, too late to expose film, only time enough to expose our hearts. ~Minor White"

"Bob as a person: was one of my first contacts on flickr, but his lovely personality soon made him a friend, no, a dear friend... as a photographer: you'll be amazed by his great photos especially night ones, oh they are so wonderful and astonishing, for me I really do remember him in every night shot I perform. thank you Bob for your great art and precious friendship."

"Bob...what can I say about Bob. We met regarding business & I was initally impressed with his integrity. As I worked with him his quick wit & ease kept me smiling. Later I found about the light painting & night photography which left me speechless. Bob encouraged me to join flickr & I've been loveing it, seeing local & international works that amaze me. Bob has been generous with tech help, tips, & encouragement. God bless the man, may he prosper & continue to suprise with his amazing photostream......"

"Bob, Bobbito, Bobboso, El duderino, Grande Fratello, 4PIZON...you name it! The guy is on a distinguished way to become a Flickr Legend. Damn...he is fantastic photographer with a great sense of humor, open minded and a sharp night shooter!
Once you enter into his world of cool images, super wide-angled shots and light painting stuff, you can't get out! A psychedelic trip that reflects a mind of a man ahead his time! This old fart (LOL) became the big brother I never had. Not just as a flickr friend, but as a real person.
Shortening up: Bob is a very skilled photographer and a very nice and generous person that I'm glad to have met here on Flickr!
Love ya man! Thanks for everything!
Molto amore, Ale!"

"Bob aka 4 pizon is truly a flickr friend. His pictures are outstanding and his personality comes out in his pictures and his comments. He always has a witty, or super, or constructive crite when needed. Having only been on Flickr for such a short time I have learned to really appreciate what he has to say. His games are awesome (TNX again for the pro account) and he, I am guessing here, types just like he talks &*^%$# and all. One stream I am always coming back daily to see what's new. Keep up the great funship Bob."

"The man's a genius behind the glass, a sharp wit with the keys, and supportive fellow. Other than that.... I've never met the guy! One of the first people I saw here and said "Whoa, look at this guys stuff!". Keep up the fine work Bob."

Noel Kerns says:
"Though I've never even actually met the man in person, I feel like I've made a great new friend in 4PIZON (Bob), through Flickr. His work has been a tremendous inspiration to me in my relatively short night-photography career, as he is clearly among the "best-of-the-best" of the night shooter / light painting genre. His talent is matched only by his own enthusiasm for the art, but his enthusiasm isn't limited to his own creativity; he's a tremendous supporter of his fellow photographer friends, offering insightful critique, and friendly, encouraging comments, all with a great sense of humor mixed in.
Suffice to say, if Flicker had a "fave" tag for people and not just images...4PIZON would get my first award!"

"My homeboy Bob is always suppling me with words of encouragement and inspiration from his photos.
What else do you need?
May 29th, 2007
"what is there to say aboot Bob...wait a minute What about Bob? his stream causes my eyes to have orgasms at times, but i think he knows that since i might as well fav his entire stream!!! seriously, i found him while doing a search on the greatest city in the world and he showcases it like no one else. he is a very genuine friend and teacher, always helping out a young un with a new toy. thanks my friend."

"Robert is a great photographer. His photos are unique and you can recognize that's his work at first sight. He has a special touch, his own approach to photography.
He is also a cool and nice guy.
Thanks for the PRO account and keep on with your amazing photos !:)"

"Bobs Photography speaks for itself. Some great concepts - some great humor, some damn pleasing shots. Great at encouraging others, perhaps the most enthusiastic yet sincere commenters on flickr's payroll. Not afraid to use alot of #*!@in big words either :-)"

"4PIZON there is a quote by William Albert Allard that reminds me of both the excellent work he creates........."You've got to push yourself harder. You've got to start looking for pictures nobody else could take. You've got to take the tools you have and probe deeper."
He does create great work and pushes the envelop of his craft. He creates this great work from nothing. He also has great generosity with his wealth of knowledge allowing folks like me to try and produce the same results in our work."

Lost America says:
"It's not like psycho Bob needs another testimonial, but it's too rich to pass up. Bob's light-painting stretches the envelope to be sure, but it's his endless hyperactive enthusiasm that is so infectious. His urge to get out and SHOOT as often as possible. Photographers like Bob are the reason my OWN night light-painting work has stepped up in volume and intensity in the last year. He's extremely inspirational."

SF buckaroo says:
"Bob takes awesome photos. They are all the more amazing given that he's not a big fan of post processing. That's right, most of these babies looked like that in the viewfinder... which adds to the unique quality of the collection. If only I had such discretion! But the really, really special thing about 4PIZON is the man behind the avatar... most certainly one of the kindest people in all of flickr."
September 3rd, 2006
"Bob's enthusiasm for photography shines through every picture, and every interaction on flickr. Lucky for the rest of us, he's also generous with his time and talent, and more than willing to mentor newbie night photographers like myself. Also worth noting is the fact that Bob doesn't bother with post-processing most of the time, so most of those amazing photos of his looked like that right out of the camera. It's a mystery to me how he does it, but I am glad I get to see the results."
August 12th, 2006
"Bob's photos rock. He's got a great eye and always looking for new perspectives - take a look at his photostream and you'll see for yourself.
He has some of the best night exposures you'll ever see! I wish I had half the energy he has to get out there for those nocturnal shots..."
August 10th, 2006
"Bob has as much enthusiasm and as much love for photography as for his family and life and friends and it shines through his images. Not only that, he is a hell of a funny guy! His photographs are often works of pure and unadulterated genius. He is not afraid to go and try things and often the results are just jawdropping. Bob, you rule!"
July 23rd, 2006
"Oh man, where to start - Bob's photos had some of my first faves on here and for good reason. The man is a genius, especially with his awesome night and long exposure shots!
But oh kids, that's not all! Bob also happens to be one of the nicest guys ever! He's helped me hone my photography skills and always has an idea or helpful tidbit to share.
Do yourself a favor, click the photos link and check out every last shot."

On a deserted island with only one man to document those cold and cloudly evenings? Pizon is your man."

"4PIZON has some of the best photos I've even seen. I always get excited when i see that he has posted new pics for viewing. His image truly inspire me and make me want to take better photos!"
