Meet Los Alamos artist Bruce Warren:

Bruce Warren has been a photographer, author and photography educator for more than 30 years. He moved to Los Alamos in 2000 from the Washington, D.C., area.

Warren has an MFA in Photography from Ohio University, Athens, and is the author of three widely used photography textbooks, Photography 2E, Photography: The Concise Guide and Digital Photography. He taught photography at Montgomery College, Rockville, Md., from 1976 to 2000, was coordinator of their photography program from 1988 to 2000, and was instrumental in establishing a complete two-year professional photography curriculum. He was awarded a Fulbright Teacher Exchange in 1994-95, during which he taught photography at London College of Printing in England.

Warren’s first career was in physics and math, which he taught at the University of Liberia for four years. Photography played a role in his life from the age of eight, beginning with a Brownie Hawkeye camera. He soon took over the family camera for Kodachrome slides of the family trips. While he was teaching in Liberia, photography began to consume more and more of his time, and on his return to the USA, he took his MFA in photography and began teaching. Now retired from teaching, Warren works on his photography out of his house in Los Alamos.

Warren’s photography includes landscapes, travel, nudes and nature, in both color and black-and-white. While his style of photography belongs to the school of straight photography, all of his current print output is produced digitally. He has traveled and photographed extensively in Europe, Africa, the Far East and the United States. Gallery shows of prints previously displayed in Los Alamos include “Mythic Places” and “70s Nudes Revisited”.
