Photography education is a rapidly evolving field, due in part to the
technological changes affecting the medium. Another factor in this
evolution is a changing of the guard among teachers. As older faculty
members retire or programs grow, yesterday’s graduate students are
moving into teaching positions, full of new ideas to advance the field
and inspire the next generation of students. While jobs in photo
education are not easy to come by and teaching is no simple task, many
photo students and recent graduates aspire to take on this role. For
insights about the path from student to teacher, we talked to three
photo educators who have already greatly affected the programs they
teach in, even at the start of their careers.
