With his outstanding experience in photography, Art Suwansang has been requested as a lecturer at Chula Lonkorn Univeristy, Bangkok, Thailand, and a consultant at the Bath Spa University, Bath, United Kingdom. Art is also presenting various workshops in digital workflow and advanced lighting which are hosted by professional photography organizations in Europe, Asia, and the United States.
Born in New York City, based in Southern California, Art Suwansang is a modern day professional with a background of American and Thai cultures. The cultural fusion became the beginning of an international career that has taken him to many major world cities as a photographer.
Beginning his post-secondary education at Cal Poly Pomona, in Computer Engineering, his love of photography soon won out as his major area of study and led him to completing his BA degree at the Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, California.
Besides beginning his own business in wedding photography (Wedding 64), Art has taught as an adjunct instructor at Brooks Institute, Santa Monica City College and currently at the University of La Verne. He designed and actualized course in digital workflow that is still part of Brooks’ undergraduate curriculum; other courses in his repertoire include basic photography, Lightroom, digital workflow, beginning and advanced Photoshop, Digital Color Theory and his new course in wedding/event photography.
When lecturing, Art takes his students on location to shoot, from the model, in a variety of set-ups. These shoots have given Art an opportunity to indulge in his own passion for architectural and fashion photography, experimenting in night lighting techniques and digital manipulation.
