teaching photography . tecumseh art center

I don’t know how many people know it but I studied to teach.  I love it.  The only thing I love doing more is of course shooting and being a photographer.  I wanted to share what I have learned and share my love of photography and the best way I know to do that (other then this here blog) is to teach, so when the Art Center in my town asked me to teach I was  beyond excited to be part of their program.  The third session starts this month a self portrait workshop! and “a photographers eye – photo 101 starts in July.  I thought it was about time I shared some of the amazing work that was done!

It takes a lot to bare one’s soul through art, the self portraits especially can be hard, but the reward for that opening up of self is so worth it, and I thank all my students for being part of such an important and wonderful process.

and finally a last day of the last class portrait :)

If you are interested in signing up for the self portrait workshop (June 15th runs for three evenings Wednesday nights for three weeks) or the Photographers Eye (July 13th five evenings for five weeks) you can sign up online @ www.tecumseharts.org

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
