    INSTRUCTOR BIO

    Brian Wilson has spent more than 50 years with a camera in his hands. He holds a Bachelor of Journalism from the Photojournalism Sequence at The University of Texas at Austin and a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University. He worked for many years as a professional photojournalist, doing hundreds of assignments for publications including USA TODAY, Time, US NEWS and Texas Business Magazine as well as corporate clients. Today his focus is on fine art scenic and travel photography where he still applies the skills he honed as a photojournalist, and enjoys passing along his experience-based knowledge and passion for photography to others.

    INSTRUCTIONS/TO BRING:

    Bring any photos you’ve found that you’re not sure how the photographer got the shot, and/or any of yours that did not quite turn out as you’d hoped, but you’re not sure why! We can discuss how to get the shots you love.

    Admission is free but you must RSVP to reserve your seat. RSVP to christine@monroviafinearts.org. (Include a live link to my email address.)
