An educator at Northern Arizona University with a passion for travel, education and photography, Amy Horn has been enthusiastically sharing her knowledge in software and photography-related fields in both secondary and post-secondary levels since 1995. With a Master’s Degree in Education, she enjoys demonstrating photographic techniques as a part of the teaching staff for Arizona Highways Photo Workshops. Photography allows her the opportunity to artistically document and share the world's unique beauty and emotion. In addition to teaching photography, her publications include Arizona Highways Magazine, Flagstaff Arboretum, and Gold Prospectors Association Magazine. She shows and sells her work annually in solo exhibits from her travels and personal projects. Capturing macro images of liquids in her studio with off camera flash units and an elaborate trigger system has been a personal project for several years and recently she has begun to capture macro images of ice. Frozen lakes and frost on plants keep her bundled up with her gear in below freezing temperatures. Another of her ongoing projects, “Senile Projectile” is about a Flagstaff machinist who is building a motorcycle engine and frame (from scratch) attempting to break an existing record at Bonneville's Speed Week, which currently stands at 168.385 mph. Photographing Bonneville’s Speed Week annually allows her to capture the passion and mechanical artistry surrounding men and their magnificent vehicles.
