Your Instructors: George & Jo Ann Aiello

The Aiellos began their photographic careers in 1974. During the '80s and '90s they operated a successful architectural photography business in the S.F. Bay Area. They have been using On1 for the last several years. Both Jo Ann and George believe in helping others explore the possibilities of creative expression which they do through workshops and online resources. The Aiellos were recently interviewed by Exhibitions Without Walls and have begun Aiello Studios Photographic Expeditions to bring photographers together at locations around the West to photograph, and share their work and experiences.

Both are long time Viewpoint volunteers. George is a past president of Viewpoint and currently serves on the Board of Directors. He is also the Viewpoint webmaster. Jo Ann is the webmaster for Viewpoint's Photo Month Sacramento.
