Harvey Chin Gallery
Harvey Chin
Photography has been a passion for many years since high school. Starting with a Petri 35mm from my dad and eventually a few film cameras I was bitten by the camera bug. College, kids and a career kept my photography time in check until recently. For lack of a better description, travel photography is my passion. I enjoy the challenge of visualizing and creating an image. Harvey is also current co-director of The Photographer's Exchange. Website http://digitalens.com

Don VandenBerge Gallery
Don VandenBerge
For me, photography is not about making a copy of the world. I view photography more as an artistic endeavor, a combination of taking the image that the camera records and integrating it with my own artistic judgement and interpretation. With the digital age, it gives me the ability to take an image and manipulate it to a changed state, this is what is interesting to me. Website http://www.donvb.com

Roger Bennett Gallery
Roger Bennett
Roger Bennett was born in Philadelphia, and grew up in New York City. He has lived in southern California since 1977. Roger has a Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering, which prepared him for the technical side of darkroom and now digital photography. He first became interested in black and white photography after viewing an exhibit by Ansel Adams. The power and emotional impact these photographs engaged him. Roger had always thought that the colors of the landscape would always be required for a photograph to impress him, but the absence of colors in the image made the contrast, patterns, and textures of the world stand out, and the composition of the elements in the image become of paramount importance. Roger’s love for landscape photography comes from his desire to communicate the beauty he sees in the natural world, and his love for wilderness, largely unaffected by our modern civilization. Roger attempts to perfect his photographic compositions from the scene he sees in front of his camera. As Edward Weston put it, “(good) composition is the strongest way of seeing”. The excitement he feels when he takes a photograph is what he tries to capture in the image. Roger has had several one-man shows in fine art galleries in the Orange County and Los Angeles areas, including the Forest and Ocean Gallery in Laguna Beach, The Huntington Beach Library, The ArtiSan Juan Gallery and The Center for Creative Photography in San Juan Capistrano, and the "Off The Wall" gallery at Cypress College. Most recently, he had a one-man-show at the Center Gallery in Anaheim. Roger has also been part of group shows at the Art Museum in La Habra, the Irvine Fine Art Gallery, Chemers Gallery in Irvine, and the BC Space Gallery in Laguna Beach. Additionally, he has been in the Laguna Beach Art-A-Fair in 2012, 2013 and 2018, as well as at the Laguna Beach Festival of Art in 2014 through 2017 and will again be showing at the Laguna Beach Festival of Art in 2019.

Gallery 2
Jan Brueckner
I started taking pictures in high school and have been doing it ever since. The arrival of the digital age combined with my membership in the Photo Exchange have stimulated lots of new work, some of which you see here. Additionally Jan has compiled a photobook titled "Digital Photographs, 2003-2015" which can be viewed in .pdf format here. http://www.socsci.uci.edu/~jkbrueck/Photo%20Book.pdf

Gallery 4
Diane Reeves
In the “Duets” Series, the words “Do not fold, spindle or mutilate” have a special resonance. First the b/w prints are painted, then cut or torn apart, then re-assembled by weaving the parts together to create another image. They are grommeted to hand made paper and details are sewn in.

Ted Nichols Gallery
Ted Nichols
I became serious about photography after taking classes locally from Don Huntsman and John Sexton. After viewing the work of Huntsman and Edmund Teske, I liked the artistry that the duotone solarization instilled in an image. Not knowing how the image will turn out adds excitement to the process. Sometimes when a print is too dark I turn to Photoshop to make it an acceptable image.

Gallery 6
Brigitte Schobert
Brigitte came to US in 1981 from Munich, Germany. Worked as a scientist at the University of California, Irvine, until 2006. Since then, time and effort are divided between photography of people and urban settings, and printmaking (etchings, woodcuts, linoleum cuts).

Gallery 7

Gallery 10
Barbara Runge
Although I am primarily a painter, I carry a camera to record images that I may use for future paintings. Occasionally some of my images work nicely as photographs. The photographs on my gallery page are from a single trip to San Miguel Allende, Mexico.

Gallery 12
Robert Staeck
While stationed in Germany at the close of WWII my dad chose the hobby of photography to occupy his time, my mom from her teens loved to paint and draw. So many years of creative influence on my evolving artistic expression have firmly established a lifelong passion in me.

Gallery 13
Maurice Fialkoff
I started photography in 1943. In 1975 I attended classes with Sandor Demlinger and fine art photography with John Sexton. Became acquainted and inspired by Al Belson. Being an Engineer I like the technical side of photography and have built equipment for various clients, now I concentrate on building Pinhole cameras and photography.

Gallery 15
Larry Pribble
Larry Pribble resists being called a photographer, and prefers the title of "photophile", a lover of the medium. However, his photographs are a testament to his ability to recognize a good image from behind the camera. His good eye and esthetic sensibilities have been honed over many years of standing before the great images hanging on the walls of the most prestigious galleries and museums.
