Location: Career Wardrobe
In this hour-and-a-half long session, the four instructors who will be teaching this fall’s Photographic Foundations course will share some insight into what the course will offer. Don’t expect them to give it all away, but come prepared for an interactive challenge of your photo knowledge and some fun information on basic technical and compositional aspects of photography.
Mike Browna has been photographing for almost forty years and has shown his work at Project Basho in Philadelphia and Umbrella Arts in NYC.
Mike travels extensively, making excursions to India several times a year, and annually to China, Southeast Asia, and South America. He believes that photography is a way to experience the people he meets and the cultures he visits.
Tony Juliano’s most important mentor and teacher was his sister, Carol, who was a professional photojournalist. Her death in 2003 brought Tony back to photography, what he calls “his calling, his passion.”
Tony studied for several years under renowned photo critic Ben Lifson of Yale University and has had his work published in numerous print publications. He also holds an official press pass for the City of Philadelphia.
Since childhood, Angie Georgis has been passionate about photography. She took photography classes at Baum School of Art after receiving her B.S. in Education. After that, she put her skills to use and became a photography instructor at the Boy's and Girls Club and spent several years teaching darkroom photography at the high school level.
While a film enthusiast, Angie has recently transitioned into the digital world.
Dale Rio holds an MFA in photography from Pratt Institute and is the recipient of a Fulbright Travel Grant and Miguel Vinciguerra Grant. Her personal work has been shown in galleries in the States and abroad, and she has worked professionally as a freelance photographer and printer.
She has been involved with many photography centers, including the Photographic Center Northwest in Seattle, the International Center of Photography and Center for Alternative Photography in New York, Project Basho, and the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center.
