RAH Photo Club was established in 2016 by professional photographer Rebecca Hutchins to bring together her love of photography as an art form, adventures, walks on the beach, the natural beauty of the Bay Area and the creative spark of kids and teens.
In the club, Hutchins teaches the fundamentals of camera use and capturing light as well as incorporating multimedia materials into projects. She encourages students to seek their creative voices and to hone their eye for the beautiful and the unexpected.
Students travel together to locations around Marin and San Francisco in search of inspiration for their art. They work together to experience the joy of collaborating with others and form their own artistic community.
People aged 8-18 are welcome. Adult classes offered upon occasion.

You will find Rebecca and her students upside down and sideways, finger-painting, making homemade filters, making Claymation videos and much much more. They will learn the proper use of a SLR camera as well as adjusting apertures and shutters while learning how to photograph in natural light.

Rebecca is so crazy fun to have as a photography teacher. I loved working with her, especially with photo paper and watercolors to make prints. We travel around to communities and school campus' in search of worthy photos while learning what our cameras can do and how to take the best pictures.
