About the Instructor: Katherine Campbell
[I]n my early teens and throughout my twenties I spent hours in the darkroom processing photography class projects and customer processing. My past 40 years in the world of photography includes sales in photography stores, photographic exhibits in southern California, western Maryland and Clearwater Florida, operating an art/photography gallery, design and implementation of tourist guide in Washington County, 10 day touring brochure for travels in Europe.
I am experienced in using film cameras, digital cameras and currently specialize in iPhone photography. My travels have taken me as far away as India, Brazil, Thailand and many other countries throughout the world. I relish the teachings of cultures outside my own. This includes not only other countries, but also the diverse
ways of life within my own country. I see the world in pictures. I am inspired daily by the light and movements of the peoples I encounter, the landscapes or street scenes I experience. With the advent of cell phone cameras, I have found a way to record the scenes from this life in an unencumbered and more discretionary way. This ease of capturing images has helped me to remain a constant participant in recording life around me which is why I have chosen to use this camera for all my current work.
