Current Classes

The world of photography and the world of the natural wonders of the Sierra Nevada opened to Don Jacobson simultaneously.

Within a week of Don’s first backpack trip into the Sierra’s, he bought his first SLR, a Pentax Spotmatic and began to take photography classes. His degree is in electrical engineering but he worked for the twenty-eight years he worked as a glassblower with work shown in galleries across the United States, and the Corning Museum included a piece of his in their 1986 collection of 200 international glassblowers. Don studied photography with Edmund Teske at UCLA for a year. He is currently a member of the Portland Photographers Forum and the Interim Group, a critique group originally formed by the influential photographer Minor White. His love of taking photographs of our beautiful native wildflowers contributed to his interest in botany. He led trips for the California Native Plant Society, the Native Plant Society of Oregon, Bark, Oregon Wild and Portland Audubon. "Beauty of the West," a book of his photographs was published in 2007, "Owner Decorated Vehicles" in 2009, "Alaska!" in 2010, "An Intimate View of Japan" in 2011 and "Pacific Northwest Architecture - A Photo Essay" in 2012.
