Samer Alassaad


Samer, a co-founder and past president of the Photography Club of Davis, developed his interest in photography after meeting his mentor, David Jolkovsky, where they use photography in their profession to document their clinical cases. He then began photographing Nature and Travel and attending the Nikon School, Rocky Mountain School of Photography and other digital photography classes. He uses Fujifilm Finepix S5 Pro digital camera and Nikkor12-24mm f4, 24-85mm f2.8 and 70-200mm f2.8 lenses.


Samer is a volunteer instructor at UCD Extension - Oshier Lifelong Lerning Institute. He teaches "Photography by Design: Introduction to experiencing the world in new ways"  and "Organizing, Processing, and Enhancing Digital Images Using Photoshop".


Samer has also written columns in the local newspaper "The Davis Enterprise":  Demystifying the controversy over photo-editing software, Photography can lift your spirit, and How to look at photographs.

Samer's views on Photography  are at "Why Photography", a column special to the members of the Photography Club of Davis:

"Photography is experiencing science, art, and emotions simultaneously.  It is imagining, planning, and executing a personal view of a fraction of a second of our universe. It is discovering, capturing, sharing, and appreciating creation at its simplest forms. Photography is getting close to and understanding the intricacies of our surrounding. It is enjoying the colors of the fall, waking up for sunrise, and looking at every sunset as if it will never be the same again."
