Our next meeting is on January 21st, 2019 at 7pm in the Foothill CenterPhotographer-teacher Mark Grzan shares techniques.

"Core principles of photography can be seen in every image," remarks Mark Grzan.  As a teacher of photography from macros to studio photography and Photoshop, he has many skills and techniques to share.

To focus more on his photography, Mark retired early in 2010 as administrator for the School of Art and Design at San Jose State University. He expanded his skills from landscape to nature photography and then macro photography with its extreme close-ups. Mark now devotes his time to creative studio work and he recently photographed members of the San Francisco Ballet. He is a member of the Morgan Hill Photography Club where he leads monthly no-fee safaris to various locations. Mark has freely provided images of local wildlife and fauna to the Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority. He remains active in civic duties in Morgan Hill where three community structures display a plaque with his name on it: the Library, the Centennial and Cultural Center, and the Outdoor Sports Center.
