For more than three decades I have been engaged in a practice as a fine art photographer. This practice has been both interrupted and informed by my formal studies (M.Ed. in Adult Education, B.Ed. – Visual Arts Specialist; BFA in Fine Arts). My practice and the creative processes I utilize to create my photographic and photo - based images has also become inextricably linked with my work, as an educator and community arts facilitator.
Workshops and Activities 
The workshop I would like to do is a photography session called Issues of Place. This session uses landscape photography as a metaphor or symbol of issues or things that are important to the students today and in the future. Students will work with their own cellphone cameras or digital cameras provide to document their landscapes. Prior to heading to take pictures I will show some of examples of landscape photography that address different issues. Student will move out into the environment around the school to capture their landscapes. I will have the students send their images to an e-mail where they can then be viewed so students can discuss their landscape photography and the issues that they want to communicate.
