Artist Biography

Breeana Robbins has been a documentary and nature photographer since 1999. She has a degree in Fine Art with a concentration in Photography, and a Single Subject Teaching Credential for Art, both from California State University at Hayward. She is also Career Technical Education certified in Arts, Media, and Entertainment from the University of California, Berkeley extension. She teaches film and digital photography, video art, and art at a public high school in the San Francisco Bay Area. She spends her breaks from work at her house in Tahoe, photographing the beauty that surrounds her for others to enjoy. She also shoots locally in the Bay Area, mainly at Lake Chabot in Castro Valley, and the marshlands where she has enjoyed the beauty of nature in the parks since she was a young child.


“The beauty of nature inspires me. Even though I may have an idea, I never know what I am going to get. I can shoot the same location every day and get something different each time because the seasons change, light changes, nature changes. Some shots I have captured documented trees that no longer stand because the elements over time have laid them to rest, flooding waters have altered landscapes, drought has created land bridges to easily shoot from perspectives that, under what is considered normal circumstances, are hard to access because they are ordinarily underwater. I find observing these changes fascinating and I love to photograph them.” – Breeana Robbins

Photography Notes - Things to Remember

 

  • Name, date, period, class, assignment, and numbering (if turning in more than one print for that assignment) must be on all work turned in to be graded.
  • Turning in late work because you were absent must have "absent" written on it.
  • No shooting for an assignment the week the prints are due. I give negative due dates so you have them ready and so that you have enough time to print.
  • It takes at least 30 minutes to develop film (not including the time it takes to put film in the developing tank) and make a print. I do not give late passes to your next class because you did not manage your time efficiently in the darkroom, while developing film, while loading film into the developing tank, or while shooting.
  • The darkroom is closed on Fridays.
  • Prints will be due the beginning of class on the due dates.
  • It is a tardy to go to your locker during class. Your folder is supposed to have everything in it and your folder is supposed to stay in class. 
  • Tardies and absences result in no participation points for the day, as does not being on task during classtime. 
  • No hoods, beanies, headphones, or cell phones are to be used on campus. Cell phones are only okay for instructional use and if the teacher allows it at the time of use. Items will be confinscated if being used.
