Every season, Telluride's Ah Haa School for the Arts seasons its schedule of classes with high profile visiting artists. This fall, October 2 – 4, photographer Bill Ellzey teaches an intensive. The workshop is designed to help digital photographers focus on the Telluride region's autumn landscape.

Ellzey is a cowboy photographer, who still cowboys now and again on the family ranch in the Texas panhandle.  He discovered photography after university, (psychology and electrical engineering), during a four-year hitch in the Air Force. Self taught, Ellzey now teaches others at prestigious schools such as Anderson Ranch Arts Center and Winona International School of Professional Photography – and Ah Haa.

Ten years ago, National Geographic invited Ellzey to contribute images to their stock photography division. One of those photographs – of a sphinx and pyramid – became the September 2001 magazine cover.

Ellzey lives and works at his self-built strawbale home in Crestone, Colorado.
