Todd Heintz

Raue Center 2022 Photography Fellow

“Working as the Raue Photographer Fellow has been an amazing experience. It has been the single most beneficial thing to happen to my photography. A Raue Photographer Fellow has the opportunity to hone their skills in so many areas of photography. You have access to large production live concerts and musicals, headshots, architecture, marketing images, behind the scenes and so much more. Raue Center truly supports the craft and encourages you to shoot as you like, try new things so you can learn and grow as an image maker. I am so grateful to have had this opportunity and I am excited for the next person to experience this too.”

Robin Pendergrast

former Raue Center photographer

“My two decades of service and experience with The Raue clearly defined for me avoiding image capture complacency. Cultural arts, photojournalism, conventional image capture was easily enhanced by The Raue experience and interaction with so many different professionals and events/opportunities.”
