The Educated Eye

Bio and My Favorite Quotes

My Info

"A photographic image cannot be judged on its merits as being good or bad from someone else's viewpoint. The question should be, did it turn out the way the photographer saw it in their minds eye? If the answer is yes then that is all that matters."

Alphonso L. Ashworth

Photographer, Instructor, Story Teller

I have been a working photographer for 30 years. Owned and operated a Photofinishing Lab for almost 29 years. We have served and trained countless novice and professional photographers. As the industry has evolved we have kept pace and survived in a sea of much larger fish. We maintain the motto we started from day one. "Committed to Quality". Over the years we have managed a portrait studio, photographed and video many weddings and assisted others with classes. The "Educated Eye" is the phrase used for Light Vision Art, a photography course that is still growing. Private and group classes and now a full online class.
