During this period Ted also earned a Masters Degree in Interdisciplinary Creative Arts from San Francisco State University, and began a second career in teaching. Ted has held fulltime positions at Stanford University and University of Oregon, and has taught part-time at a number of schools (including Cabrillo College, where he currently teaches Digital Photography). Ted has also led master classes in artistic development at workshop Centers across the country, including Maine Photography Workshops, Penland School of Crafts and University of California Extension.
In 1985 Ted self-published his first book, Man & Yosemite, which traces the early history of Yosemite as it can be interpreted through photographs of the period. A large selection of Ted's early photographs and writings appear in his monograph, Scenes of Wonder & Curiosity. Ted is also co-author (with David Bayles) of the classic artists' survival guide, Art & Fear, and is author of its recent companion volume, The View From The Studio Door.
Today Ted Orland lives in Santa Cruz, California, where he continues his parallel careers in teaching, writing and photography.
