About This Class
This class is meant for the beginning photographer who wants to get outside and make images but isn't quite sure where to start. We'll head out to some of my favorite outdoor locales in Arizona to shoot plants, animals, and landscapes using our wits, in-camera effects, specialty gear, and post production techniques. We'll also cover composition and different weather scenarios.

I have always been interested in the visual arts from an early age- drawing, painting, and clay- but around my high school years I became interested in photography for the social aspect of involving other people, the adventure inherent in seeking out pictures, and the presentation of reality that wasn't limited by my drawing skills.
One thing in my work that has stayed consistent over the decades since then is I have an equal interest in the reality of the lens next to the fictions we can create in drawing, painting, animation, graphic design, and sound design. As cameras have incorporated video and audio features, and as Adobe's Creative Cloud allows for use of a plethora of mind-bending tools, I now make video art pieces that are based in photography but utilize time lapse, clay and paper stop motion animation, graphic animation, text and sound to expand the same intersection of reality and pop surrealism.
