Contemplating Gratitude: Photography Workshop

Workshop | February 10 | 1-4 p.m. |  UC Botanical Garden

 Botanical Garden

PLEASE NOTE: Centennial Drive has a planned CLOSURE on Monday 2/10 from 9am - 3pm. Access to the Garden will only be available via Grizzly Peak. Please plan your arrival accordingly.

In this contemplative photography workshop, we will renew our innate sense of gratitude by deliberately delighting in Nature’s grandeur. The garden and our cameras will conspire to hone our wonder and create expressive imagery grounded in gratitude.

Any and all equipment are invited, including DSLRs, mobile phones, point-and-shoot, polaroid, and pinhole cameras. We will emphasize the process of art making and the cultivation of awe over technical considerations. Open to beginning and experienced students.


A photographer, naturalist, and educator, Becky Jaffe is our 2019 Artist in Residence at the UC Botanical Garden. Using in-camera techniques that stretch the photographic medium to create painterly effects, she fuses an artist’s sensibility with a biologist’s curiosity in order to communicate reverence for the natural world. Becky has been a UCBG docent for the past 10 years.
