On Tuesday, January 9 at 7 pm the Bedford Center for the Arts Photo Group will welcome back photographer and educator, Sue Anne Hodges who will discuss Abstraction in photography.
Sue Anne started college with a plan to major in Visual Design before realizing photography was her calling. However, her interest in the arts and design remained, leading her to take workshops with Ati Gropius Johansen on Color Theory (2007) and Dynamics of Composition (2008).
Since 1992, Sue Anne has been exploring and using digital cameras and digital imaging technology, having studied this technology at the Center for Creative Imaging in Camden, Maine. Her career began as an advertising photographer, helping to build and supervise an in-house studio for Lechmere, a retail chain store. This led her to teaching studio lighting at New England School of Photography (NESOP) where in 1995 she helped them establish the digital imaging department, and became Director of Digital Imaging. She taught there for 25 years.
In 2011, 2012 and 2018 Sue Anne was honored to be one of 20 educators in the country to be invited by Adobe to attend the Adobe Educators Summit. She remains a specialist in Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and Digital Printing.
In recent years her photography has taken her out of the studio and includes a variety of projects including work for The Cultural Landscape Foundation, Down East Magazine, and Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce. Sue Anne’s personal work has been widely exhibited and for 15 years she was represented by Redfield Artisans Gallery in Northeast Harbor, Maine.
She continues to teach, and has taught for Maine Media Workshops, and for the Griffin Museum of Photography. She will be teaching Photoshop 1 online through the Griffin Museum starting January 10th and will be teaching Lightroom Classic in March.
