Our Instructors

Aaron Pate

Memories are made in the moment. And, as a street photographer, Aaron Pate understands this. Aaron is a candid shooter – no tripods or special gear – just a steady hand and a willingness to snap when the feeling strikes.


When it comes to Aaron, we quickly learn that he is a fair man, and The Golden Rule reigns supreme in his value system: “Treat people how you would expect to be treated. I want our customers to feel like they have received value and a great experience from our services, but also feel that they were treated fairly in the rare instances that we cannot get the exact results someone is looking for.” And when he’s asked why he’s in this business, the answer is simple: He loves photography.


Vincent Lawson

Vincent Lawson is passionate about teaching others about the technical and creative aspects of photography. He has been offering photography classes at the University of South Alabama for over eight years, and is now joining the Calagaz team. We are excited to have Vincent and the new ideas and perspectives he will bring to our customers.


Vincent's love of photography started when he was in the Air Force, and enjoys photojournalism the most. Some of his favorite photographers include Sebastião Salgado, Eve Arnold, Gordon Parks and Elliott Erwitt to name a few. When asked what is the one piece of photo gear that he can't live without, his response: "My eyes" -- Touché! Vincent’s photography can be viewed at:
