PERRY: a Bay Area photographer especially drawn to street photography and urban landscape, but who’s work is ever expanding…”Classes at CCSF helped me to discover a passion for photography that I didn’t know to exist.. Now as a professional, I am finding that the imagery I work on is continually on a creative track”.

See Grahame Perry Photography website and on Facebook.

CARUANA: Shoots commercial, weddings & editorial work. “I run my work in photography not only as a creative skill but necessarily as a business too.” Liz recently created a portrait book of Bay Area Fashion Designers titled, “The Bay: Creators of Style”. This book and accompanying show was a wildly popular event and featured in many Bay Area publications.

Program #5. (Oct. 14th) TROY PAIVA

“I love the lonely, wide open spaces and lack of man made ambient light that exists in the desert. Last year I was in England to give a lecture and managed to get three nights of shooting at a WW II POW camp, a train junkyard, and an aircraft bone yard. Typically British weather, socked in, and rainy skies. I’m happier shooting in the deserts of California.

Program #6. (Oct. 28th) SCOTT LONDON

Scott has been photographing “Burning Man” over 8-9 years. His beautiful images are as incisive as they are entertaining. A California-based photographer, journalist, and consultant, he is perhaps best known for his one-on-one interviews with influential writers and thinkers. He is a former host of “Insight and Outlook,” a program of ideas aired on National Public Radio stations across the United States. His range of ideas and thought is awesome.
