Black Hills State University photography faculty Steve Babbitt and Jerry Rawlings have over 37 years of teaching experience between them. Photography is more than a profession for them, it is their passion. Both still work and maintain their own photography businesses outside of BHSU in order to keep up with the latest trends in the photographic medium. They are continually educating themselves on the ever changing world of digital photography in order to provide their students with the latest information and practices within the photographic medium.
