Jeffrey Bell has been working for the federal government, for over thirty years, as a scientific and technical photographer. His interests in photography began when his older brother gifted him a Polaroid camera at age eight. Jeffrey believes in giving back; he has been associated with the
Shooting Back for the Artsprogram, where he volunteers his time teaching photography and serving as a big brother to Washington, D.C. area young adults. He has provided assistance and photographic work to local businesses, theater companies and other photography studios.
Jeffrey has solid photographic training from several institutions here in the United States and Europe. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in photography from the Rochester Institute of Technology and studied photography at the prestigious, Salzburg College in Salzburg, Austria.
He has been able to maintain his skills by attending seminars and workshops across the country including Santa Fe Photographic Workshops and Maine Media Workshops. Called on to provide instruction on different photographic techniques over the years, he believes once you stop learning you should get out of the business. He continues to challenge his ability, and learn from fellow photographers.
