 My name is Art Becker. I was born in Erie, Pennsylvania and studied Photography at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. Started my commercial photography career in Fort Lauderdale/Miami. Returned to Erie, Pennsylvania in 1989 to 2013. Relocated to St Petersburg Florida 2014 for the blue skies and sunshine.


It’s the One-One communication between creator and viewer that matters.

Making Unique Photographs
In todays world everyone has a camera. It may be a camera on their phone, but they still have one. This means that millions, maybe billions of people are making photographs. What does that mean to you.

1.You have find a way to make your images different or unique.
 2. Photograph your subject from every angle, use a refreshing point of view.
 3. Seeing light and an effective way to capture it.
 4. Emphasize those often overlooked details that make your imagery jump out.

 Now how do we do that? 
You take this class. You’ll learn, laugh, and create.

 Being different and making a visual statement.
