I am a fine arts photographer who exhibits photographic works nationally and internationally. I teach photography at the art department of MiraCosta College and Southwestern College in San Diego, after teaching at the University of Miami for 8 years, and teaching summers in Florence, Italy at Studio Art Centers International for 4 summers. I own and manage my own photography business in San Diego called LaMia Fotografia, offering interactive photography workshops and photographic services for clients passionate about photography.
Guests can bring lunch money or picnic for a visit to an optional beautiful lunch spot after the hike with panoramic views!
We will go to a beautiful hiking destination in San Diego called Torrey Pines State Reserve. We will park on the State Beach and hike up to the top of the reserve and enjoy a guided hike of a few of the trails while learning photographic techniques and how to use your camera to make the most interesting pictures. We will then enjoy a lovely simple lunch of sandwiches with gorgeous panoramic views at a casual cafe while watching the gliders.
