About the instructor: Ken Hupila says, "I live in northern Minnesota and have been interested in photography since I won a box camera at a carnival when I was six. The last couple of years have finally seen an opportunity when finances and free time have allowed me to begin playing with the interest. I have been taking nature shots and sport photos for awhile and am just beginning to play with studio photography."
Ken's photography classes at the Ely Folk School have been very popular. He also offers Advanced Photography, Photographing Wild Orchids, Capturing Fall Colors, and Introduction to Photoshop.
