I’m Lee Varis, photographer, educator, and digital imaging artist. I have maintained a website at this domain for over 15 years. I have divided my 45 years of experience almost equally between traditional film-based, and digital imaging photography. This gives me a unique perspective on the evolution of photographic technology grounded in the tradition of old school craft.
I invite you to explore my collection of blog posts, for technical and artistic insights, on the world of photographic imagery. Click on the slider images above to go to recent posts—this area changes frequently, so plan on returning often. You can explore older posts from the Blog Index or the Posts by Catagory menu above. I provide online and offline video training in my school, as well as free video & PDF tutorials—check out the Education menu above!
