Abiqua Studios (Photography & Music)
I've been photographing for over forty years, starting on film and in the darkroom, ultimately teaching myself the essentials of the digital medium, teaching all along the way has put me in a unique position to help those that truely want to become a photographer.
When students begin to understand concepts, and they start to see improvments in their process and photography, they become empowered and inspired, that's what I aim for.
