Alumni Friday: Alison Behr

We love when alumni come back to visit. A couple of weeks ago, Alison Behr dropped in, a graduate of Summer Intensive 2004 . She didn’t come by herself, however. Alison was accompanied by a group of her high school students from the Pacific Rim School in Carlsbad, California. Alison teaches the school’s Digital Photography Program. Oh how we love fellow educators of photography, especially when they are alumni.

Alison’s summer in Missoula was merely a summer interlude.  In her teaching career, she had been teaching photography, digital art, art history and drawing at St. George’s School in Newport Rhode Island. In 2008 she completed her MFA in photography from  Savannah College of Art and Design.

In her spare time she also manages to work as a freelance photographer. She has worked for clients such as CNN International, Alltel Wireless, The U.S. Women’s Open Golf Championships, and various galleries and news publications.
