Our speaker this month is Amy Horn. Amy lives in Flagstaff, Arizona and has been enthusiastically sharing her knowledge in software and photography related fields in secondary and post-secondary levels since 1995. With a Master's Degree in Education, she enjoys demonstrating photographic techniques both in the classroom and out in-the-field.

In addition to teaching photography, capturing macro images of liquids in her studio with off-camera flash units and an elaborate trigger system has been a personal project for several years. Her newest personal project is photographing water: from oceans to ice. This project began with capturing macro images of ice, frozen lakes and frost where below freezing temperatures did not stop her from capturing the shot. Currently, Amy is on a one-year sabbatical to continue developing her portfolio in photographing water. During the summer of 2018, she spent 10-weeks in a teardrop trailer along the Pacific Coast in search of lakes, rivers, waterfalls, oceans, and mist.

Amy is an educator at Northern Arizona University and Arizona Highways PhotoScapes. Her publications include Arizona Highways Magazine, Gold Prospectors Association Magazine, and her new co-authored book, The Art of Macro Photography. When she is not teaching, she enjoys time with her family and photographing the world around her. To see more of Amy’s work, visit
