Shane Powers has been teaching photography to youth and adults for most of the past decade. Shane hails from the Wild West town of Boise, Idaho and received his MFA in Photography from Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
In 2003, he founded a comprehensive, year-long photojournalism program with 80 high school students in six Boise-area high schools called focus208, which was featured in PDN Magazine. He is now a veteran volunteer member of the Mission District's artist collective Red Poppy Art House, and he also volunteers as a youth photography mentor for First Exposures, a program conducted by SF Camerawork.
He has also been teaching various workshops at the famed Harvey Milk Photo Center in San Francisco since 2009. Shane's ﬁrst love is working with old medium and large format cameras and historical processes, but he's no slacker when it comes to the newfangled digital media.
