Photography Judge-B.E. (Brad) Butler
I have performed photography most of my life. and have been a working pro since the mid 90's. I studied at the New York Institute of Photography and have taken numerous public classes. I now teach classes in Digital Photography at Western Community College for Colorado Mesa University, which strangely enough is where I took my first class.
Photography has been very rewarding and sometimes a challenge. It has given me the opportunity to see many different ideas in the art, and has helped me to improve and mold my own. I feel very fortunate to live where beauty is just steps out the back door.
