Course Instructor

Shelly Irvin

My name is Shelly Irvin, and I have had the privilege of teaching at MNTC summer youth since 2012. I am a recent University of Oklahoma, Visual Communications Graduate. I'm happily engaged and I cannot wait to photograph my trip to Disney this fall.  I have been doing graphic design since, 2010. I grew up with a camera in hand and I love photographing animals and landscapes. I believe photography is a way of freezing a moment in time.  I can't wait for summer youth to start, so I can share my knowledge of photography & see what awesome photos are taken.
