These photos are from the Photo 1 pin hole camera project. Students built cameras out of shoe boxes and tin cans. They are producing these amazing artistic views of campus with their 'home made' cameras. We will be continuing to work on this project next week, so if you see a student walking around with a shoe box.... stand really still, and maybe you will end up in one of these fantastic images.
It was at some point during Amy Haskell's high school years (St. Gregory, ’91) that she first picked up a camera. She quickly found a passion for the art of photography. After attaining a BFA in photography from University of Arizona, then working in the trenches as a photo-assistant for many years, she decided to break out on her own. Nearing 18 years as owner/operator of her own commercial photography business, Haskell Photography, Amy is eager to share her expertise with the young photographers at the Gregory School. Her work has appeared in national, statewide and local magazines, billboards, coffee table books, movie posters and an assortment of other media worldwide. As an alumna of our school, Amy says "It will be particularly sweet to return to the campus where it all started."
I am enjoying getting to see the campus from the perspective of 'faculty', and getting to spend time with the next generation of young photographers is inspiring. The students are so bright, creative and curious, it makes teaching them a lot of fun.
