Dennis Ariza’s interest in photography began in a biology class in 1968 when his instructor showed him how to photograph slides through a microscope. His career began with a wide variety of interests such as wedding photography, family and graduation portraiture, and anything that was outdoors. Ariza graduated from the New York Institute of Photography 1977 and has studied digital photography at Solano Community College.
As time passed, Ariza developed a passion for photographing wildlife and landscapes. He now organizes photo adventures to unusual locations to introduce friends and family to the extraordinary beauty of the world around us.
Ariza is a member of the Vacaville Art League, President of the Fairfield Suisun City Visual Arts Association, American Canyon Art Foundation, The Artist Collaborative, Viewpoint Gallery, and Director of the Solano Town Center Gallery.
