Teaching – Langara Professional Photography Program

Alright,

I finally did it.

This semester, I was hired to teach for Langara’s Professional Photography Program (the daytime program). Specifically, I’ve been teaching Technical Photography 1 and Photographic Industry Topics.

I’ve been teaching for the Langara Continuing Studies Department (evening classes) for a couple years but this new position involves teaching for the photography program I attended back in 2007. I have been wanting to teach for the program ever since I graduated so it’s nice that the “10 year overnight success” mentality has finally come to fruition.

The first week of classes, I did some portrait of all the students by just running through a whole bunch of random questions to get some candid reactions you can enjoy below.
