When you see a photograph, you are looking through the eyes of the artist at a singular place and time. Never to be exactly duplicated again. John Mazurek brings you the world through his eyes as you share the joy of nature, the treasure of a new location or the delight of a unique face. He began as a photographer as a young teen with his first 35mm camera. He learned the hidden secrets of the darkroom as the first image developed before him. After many years and thousands of images, he found a new way to express his art. The power of the computer finally balanced the capacity of film to accurately capture an image. Digital photography allows John the immediacy of the Polaroid and control
and versatility unknown in traditional film technologies. Finally, with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop CS5 he has a virtual "darkroom" to compose photos and create a final work of art. Digital photography has renewed this old photographer’s passion for his work and added years of enjoyment to his craft.
John also teaches basic and advanced digital photography and Photoshop at the University of Wisconsin - Parkside as well as lecture on his travels
