Teaching Photography - Finally, a book for you teachers. Because making great photographs does not always translate into an ability to teach effectively.

Teaching Photography will show you how to help your students expand their knowledge and abilities in the techniques, the aesthetics, and the way photography fits into a greater world of knowledge, by providing ideas for inspiring conversations and critiques, as well as insightful pointers regarding the learner's perspective in this new world.

Teaching Photography approaches photographic education from a point of view that stresses the how and why of the education, not the technique to be taught.

Readership: This book is aimed at professionals who wish to go into teaching; photo educators without education or training in education, graduate students pursuing teaching as a profession, and established teachers looking for ideas that might lead to improvements in their academic performance.

About the Author: Glenn Rand is a Professor in the graduate program at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. Richard D. Zakia is Professor Emeritus, Rochester Institute of Technology
