Connie Cassinetto Photography

Biography


My background in photography dates back many years, but in 2010 I began to take it seriously as a fine art. I spent a week in Missoula, Montana at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography with Tony Rizzuto in 2012. I’ve studied with a variety of professional photographers since that time, including John Shaw, Dave Wyman, Phil Schermeister from National Geographic Magazine, Gale Perry, Russ Burden with Outdoor Photographer Magazine, and Michael Frye with the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite and Outdoor Photographer. I have attended seminars with Scott Kelby’s Joe McNally, and with Tony Sweet and Gary Crabbe. In May 2013 I received my A.A. in Fine Art-Photography at Columbia Junior College. In February 2015 I became an Adobe Certified Expert in Adobe Lightroom and a Lightroom instructor at Columbia Junior College in Sonora.
