We look forward to having Eric Mittman as our judge for the open competition on October 23, 2017. Perhaps the best way to introduce Eric is to share what he says about his work:
I am the Photography Program Director at Sparkman High School and teach just about all aspects of photography including traditional black and white 35 mm, medium and large format photography as well as digital photography, studio lighting and digital manipulation with Adobe Photoshop.
When I am not teaching and hanging out with my family I pursue my passion for portraiture, travel and landscape photography on my weekends and evenings. I offer small group (1-4) private workshops for beginners who want to learn more about photography and get more out of their digital SLR camera. I also travel internationally each year to Europe and all photo enthusiasts (beginning to advanced) are welcome to join, just email me for information about upcoming trips at firstname.lastname@example.org
