Seasoned shutterbug Joel “Gus” Archer takes pride in watching his photography students develop new skills and a visual voice as he leads a variety of classes that can benefit novice and experienced photographers alike. Beginners learn to wield their new Nikons, Canons, iPhones, or optically implanted cameras in group classes or deepen their talents in sports, underwater, or macro photography. In addition to teaching the general population, Joel has shared his expertise to train law-enforcement agencies from the International Association of Arson Investigators to the Oklahoma Sheriffs’ Association, as well as the Junior League of Oklahoma City. When Joel isn’t teaching, he draws from his Swedish and Cherokee heritage to inform his breadth of work and compiles tutorials such as his upcoming book, Dark Dirty Secrets of Digital Photography.

Subscribers to pre-destiny's whimsical dictates can choose from a breadth of pre-fabricated frames, which range from $6 to $300, and DIYers can purchase glass, foam board, and mounting supplies to showcase postmodern surrealist paintings of melting microwave clocks.
