Brennan’s teaching style:
His mission as an instructor is to teach the potential of the photographic medium and show students how to express themselves through photographs. He shows students how to control the camera functions to create unique, personal, and meaningful work. Photography is a way to interpret the world, and photographs are to be made, not taken.
Brennan loves EAC because . . .
It affords the community a way to learn a multitude of artistic practices from experienced instructors, free from the constraints and costs of typical education institutions.
