Photography & Digital Imaging

with Christopher Caselli

Welcome to photography. My name is Chris Caselli and I graduated from St. Stephen’s in 1982. I am a working professional and teach part-time at St.Stephen’s because I believe in this school and its founding principles, and I also believe the arts to be a major component of a well-balanced individual.

I believe in a hands-on, inquiry-based form of pedagogy that allows students to attain confidence and competence with the camera. In the beginning we familiarize ourselves with the tools of the trade, be it a film camera or computer, and beyond that we work on seeing the environment with a photographer’s eye with close attention to the creative and aesthetic vision. As with any creative process, there is a good deal of trial and error while honing the craft, but the more practice, the more adept we become.
