This ain’t your average photography class. Award-winning, Bay Area phenomenon Saxon Holt will be teaching an incredible series of garden photography classes at the SFBG.
His photos have been seen everywhere from Smithsonian Magazine to Architectural Digest. He’s published scores of books and won a pile of awards. And now, Saxon Holt will be teaching a series of classes at the SFBG.
“We’ll be exploring how the photographer can develop the eye to see the design of the garden. Understand the subtle design cues that make the garden beautiful. If you first understand the garden, you’ll understand what will make a great photograph,” said Holt. “Let’s analyze what makes this pleasant, what makes it beautiful.”
Who should take these classes? Holt hopes to see folks like himself who feel that gardens are important, that the aesthetics of the garden are important.
“Gardens feed our soul. I passionately believe in gardens and hope to create a community of like-minded people.”
