J.O. Combs Students Interacting With Professionals

combs photography

Corporate Photographer, Mark Skalny and Master Photographer Bob Coates, visited Combs Middle School as guest presenters on April 3rd. These gentlemen volunteered their time to share their experience with our new photography elective class. 

Each speaker shared their work and instructed students on how to capture the correct lighting and composition in their photos. They also shared their business experiences and entrepreneurial knowledge to assist our students with the journey of becoming college and career ready. 

Mark Skalny has worked with a wide array of clients—from small business owners to large corporations—and to shooting for publications such as Cowboys and Indians, W Magazine and Men’s Vogue. Bob Coates has a twenty-plus year career as a pro-photographer in the Commercial & Product Photographer industry and works out of Sedona.
