Photography Workshop – the Graduates of “class 102″ (Level 101)

Post Image

In April of 2011 – I hosted the 2nd class for my 101 level Photography workshop. These are the graduates – “class 102″ – of my first level (101) TWP Photo Workshop. 6 students this time around with 1 (Trina Callie) not pictured. It was again a huge hit and I really enjoyed doing the teaching thing again. I love anything that reminds me of my teaching students how to Scuba Dive.

Christopher Clavero [IRHS '11] currently is my final senior of 2011, and was super fun to end the season on… Chris is goofy, fun loving and smart as a whip. He’s got a whole host of funny faces and uses them well to help him when he teaches young kids to swim. Chris is a swimmer & loves guitar, as you can see – he’s got quite a collection of them. Chris participates in a band and is definitely a talented musician. Looking forward to hearing those original songs in the future Chris. Thanks for trusting me with your Senior story!

Hannah | Senior [Salpointe '11]

Hannah Furrier isn’t the first Furrier, nor the last to be in front of my camera. Like her cousin Halie before her, Hannah was a pleasure to work with and her family is so much fun. Hannah is one of the most interesting gals I’ve ever met… she’s is a blend of everything. Hannah loves culture, loves her travels that have already included Europe. Nearby Mexico is one of her favorite places. She’s a swimmer, loved being apart of her high school squad for the sake of relationship and staying in shape. Can be found hanging out with her friends at all the recent movies when she’s not working at RAH (Tucson’s best Sushi). She had just finished reading “Rock & Hard place” the story that was adapted into the movie “127 Hours” which gave us lots to talk about. Some of Hannah’s favorite high school memories revolve around friend and family summer travels to the Lake House – where she enjoys wake boarding, waterskiing & tubing. Hannah’s also taken to the slopes on the snowboard, but above all else is a love for the “happiest place on earth” : Disneyland. Having attended Salpointe all 4 years of high school she says she’ll miss all the school spirit: football games, basketball, powderpuff contests. She says she’s close with a huge majority of her 350 class of 2011 seniors. Mom described Hannah as wise, witty & super kind. Hannah said she’s partially introverted, particular and boarderline OCD (in a good way). What could’nt be denied was her passion for God and for Sonoran Hotdogs, which I was introduced to during the session as we visited her favorite place in Tucson: “BK”. Next up for Hannah: Attending the Univ of Arizona rushing as a WILDCAT, she’s got a full ride scholarship and will be majoring in organic bio chem working towards a career as an orthodontist or dermatologist.. she’s got big plans and there’s no doubt she’ll get there from here.
