About Matt Suess:
Matt began his professional photography career while in college in 1990 and for the next 17 years worked as an award-winning photojournalist and winner of the 2003 New England Press Associations’ Photographer of the Year Award. His editorial and advertising photography has been published worldwide in newspapers, magazines, books, and more. 
Matt is a digital photography pioneer who began working with digital imaging in the early 1990's and helped implement and teach digital image processing to fellow newspaper staff photographers in the late 90's and early 2000's. 
In 2006 Matt left behind his photojournalism career and ever since he has been a full-time artist selling his artwork at some of the best juried fine art festivals throughout the Southwest, with collectors worldwide.
With his vast experience in photography it is no surprise that Matt loves teaching. Due to the demands of being a full-time artist constantly traveling, he is only able to teach a small number of workshops each year. You can view his upcoming workshop schedule here.

About Christine Hauber:
Christine began her professional photography career in 1993. A graduate of the Art Institute of Colorado and the University of Colorado, her photographs have been shown in galleries nationally and showcased in B&W and Photo Technique Magazine. 
The author of the book Working in the USA, Christine has been the subject of several television programs, including the Fine Living Channel's Radical Sabbatical and CNN's NewsNight with Aaron Brown and interviewed for such internet and podcast programs as the Candid Frame and Photo Talk Radio. 
She has conducted national lectures, seminars and workshops in addition to teaching photography at a community college. Since she now travels extensively selling her artwork, she is able to conduct a small number of workshops each year.
Christine began selling her artwork as a full-time artist in 2004. She has taken her photography into the realm of mixed media, creating one-of-a-kind pieces combining patinaed or oil painted metals with her photographs. Her work is now collected internationally.  Her website is
