In the Garden with Tom HennessyAbout the instructor

Tom Hennessy studied photography at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in the late 1970s using 35mm film cameras, and had his own darkroom for black and white printing. But his “day job” limited time for photography until his retirement in 2016. He purchased his first DSLR camera in 2011 and became focused on relearning photography in the digital age. He has taken many of the beautiful images of the Garden that you see on the website. He emphasizes taking photographs that require minimal editing. He is an artist in residence at Crossroads Art Center, and travels around the world and the U.S. visiting botanical gardens and experiencing different landscapes.
