MEET THE INSTRUCTOR
Mark Nevers is an award-winning photojournalist, portrait photographer, photo editor and recipient of the prestigious Joslyn Benzakin Fellowship. Mark began teaching photography while studying at the International Center of Photography in New York City. He is fascinated about the way photography blends the "old school" (developing film, mixing chemicals, the printing process) in a tech-dominant era. Mark is passionate about sparking the imagination of students of all ages and backgrounds, not only introducing the mechanics of photography, but also the secondary skills associated with the practice including patience, focus, how to engage the public and exercise (all the walking!).
3WN: How did you get started in this industry?
Mark: I got started as a youngster. As I grew up photography seemed to follow me. As a high school student the opportunity to take a photo class came up, so I said 'why not?!' After high school I saw both the potential in my work and the many lives I could touch through photography. It wasn't until I got accepted to both SVA (School of Visual Arts) and ICP (International Center of Photography) with full scholarships that I knew that photography was and is life.
3WN: What is your teaching style?
Mark: I create a relaxed environment in which ideas of every type can be shared. This allows the information that was learned to be recirculated through the students via their conversations. An atmosphere of creative ownership.
3WN: Do you have a photography philosophy?
Mark: I just want to tell a story of a people who don't get their story told in the most positive light. I love interacting with folks. I love hearing their stories. Photography is my escape when this world becomes too much. I don't teach photography, I teach life.
