Johnson's background is mechanical engineering, and he uses the camera itself as an engineering tool. He says that photography offers another method of observation and
communication for research or personal enlightenment. Johnson will talk about creating imagery, capturing imagery, and how to manipulate each for the story you are trying to tell. He will field technical and artistic questions through a discussion on a number of selected images. He is assistant director of corporate development in Michigan Tech's Office of Development and owner-operator of Brockit photography in Hancock. To see his photography visit his Web site.

Pizza and drinks will be provided. Please bring your own cup/mug to minimize waste.
