My name is Hank Ogle and I am a Junior at Cuesta Community College. As a semi-professional nature and wildlife photographer, my goal is to capture interesting behavior and the natural beauty of various animals and landscapes. This goal was inspired when I started to intern with Donald Quintana during my senior year of high school and through the years I feel like I've improved in the various aspects of photography. My goal in life, however, is to become a feature film editor and the skills I learn from doing nature photography will definitely help to improve my skills as an editor from picture composition, color grading, to even the skills of marketing myself. .


My name is Lane Stephens I am 16 years old and I'm going into my senior year at San Luis Obispo high school. I have loved photography my whole life and now I am taking classes at school to help me progress as a photographer. I have a passion for nature and conservation photography coming from my love of animals and the outdoors. Outside of photography, I am the president of my schools gay-straight alliance and I am passionate about reading, writing, and acting.


Hi I'm Colby, and I am a senior at San Luis Obispo High School. After taking Environmental Science my junior year, I became very interested in wildlife conservation and sustainability. Thus, my interest in protecting nature through media was born. On my free time, I also enjoy fencing, volunteering at my local library, playing board games and participating in a book club.


I got my first point and shoot camera when I was 8 and my first DSLR when I was 10 and I’ve been shooting photos ever since. Some of my achievements include; 3-time winner of New Times Winning Images youth division, best of show at the 2011 4H State Field Day, division winner 2012 4H State Field Day, editor’s pick National Geographic Kids Magazine, featured artist at Talley Vineyards. I have sold my photos at Morro Bay Art in the Park and the San Diego Holiday Arts Festival, and I currently sell my photo greeting cards at Among Friends in Cambria. I am now a junior at Morro Bay High School. I love all aspects of photography, but nature and landscape photography are my favorites.



I like to capture combinations of colors in nature that stand out to me.


Hello! Being introduced to photography was a complete accident, but I'm glad it happened because it has become my greatest passion. In the future, I hope to have my own successful photography business and have my images in high fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Vanity Fair. I'm very interested in shooting high fashion, street, and architectural photography.
