Bob Pavelsky was born in Brooklyn, New York. His family moved to Southern California when he was two years old. He grew up in Lakewood, California.
When Bob was about twelve years old his cousin showed him her new Brownie camera. He was amazed and fell in love with it. Bob has had a camera nearly every day of his life since then.
Bob graduated from Lakewood High School. He then attended Long Beach City College (LBCC) which is where he met his future wife, Nancy. After they left LBCC Nancy went on to UCLA and Bob continued his education at George Pepperdine College (GPC) which was then located in South Central Los Angeles.
Upon graduation from GPC Nancy and Bob were married and he attended Fuller Theological Seminary, Graduate School of Psychology (FTS) in Pasadena, California. He graduated from FTS with an M.A. Degree in Theology, and a Ph.D. Degree in Clinical Psychology and started upon a long multi-faceted career as a Clinical Psychologist and Marriage and Family Therapist. Over all the years he remained in love with photography.
Clinical Psychology and Marriage and Family Therapy was his primary occupation, but over the years he also served as a College Professor, owner and senior instructor of a karate school, pastor, and academic administrator. During these years Nancy received her Ph.D. in Leadership and Human Development and joined Bob in working as the Business administrator at their psychological services center, and as an assistant instructor at their karate school.
When he got closer to retirement, Bob decided he wanted to retire from working for a paycheck and turned his interest/hobby of photography into a business. He then started to develop his style as a fine art photographer.
