“In Summer 2009 I felt I needed to get more out of photography and looked for a way to develop my skills, but more importantly artistic awareness.  The OCA introductory course was a great place to start and since then I have never looked back.  The OCA courses opened my eyes to the visual world I live in, I look at things differently now, I see pictures and meaning all around.  The OCA taught me that photographs are not simply pictures, they are precious objects that convey meaning and narrative.”
