Barbara Ellison has been fortunate to be able to combine in her career five of favorite pasttimes: photography, teaching, art, gardening and travel. She has represented Canon USA as a pro market representative since 1989, which has given her the opportunity to shoot and teach extensively. Her work has ranged from political events to sports to scenics and, a particular favorite, flowers. (Her husband Michael has an orchid nursery.) In addition to teaching general photography classes and Canon specifically(both cameras and printers), she teaches handcoloring techniques and special digital applications. Her work is published in various books, including Digital Photo Art and Black and White Digital Photography. She has exhibited in galleries all over the United States.
