Our NEW Blog

Howdy Everybody!

Well, we have done it. We have a blog. I am super excited about this. We will be using this blog as an informal way of discussing contemporary issues in photography (like whether or not Shepard Fairey is right or wrong about abusing Associated Press copyrights, or where do you draw the line between artistic nude and artistic porn). We will also discuss trends in fine art photography, review photoshows, discuss our book club features, do technical reviews of fancy gear that costs more than your car (as well as cheap gear that costs as much as a burrito), give you fun free tips for better shooting, alert you to things happening about town and much, much more.

Most importantly we will do what we do best- we will inspire you to be the most creative photographic artist that you can possibly be.

So, subscribe to this blog and stay tuned! PASSION IS CONTAGIOUS!!!!

Your friend,

We CAN Learn From Our Past!

In photography, as in any field, we learn from our past. We learn about various cultures from photography. We also learn about ourselves, our medium, our specific genre that we work in as artists, and where we fit within that genre. We can also sometimes see where the field of photography is headed, and even guide it a little to where WE want it. We have the power to do this, once we have learned of our past. Using this as a guiding light you will see more classes coming from WWA. These classes will contribute to the learning of the history of the photographic arts. You will also see all of our instructors using more images from the history of photography as a teaching tool. So stay tuned.
