In 2009, Timothy Mielke came to Maranatha to teach photography and video classes. He was the campus photographer and photography teacher at another college for two and a half years before moving to Wisconsin. He established his own photography business in 2006 to help him remain relevant in classroom instruction. His portfolio consists of Dust to Life – The Visual Gospel, weddings, portraits, and sports photography (NFL, NCAA D1). He teaches a variety of courses in the Communication Arts field.
“Teaching people how to communicate with visuals has been a passion I have had since high school,” Mr. Mielke says. “In my field, there isn’t a lot of Christian influence or training. I love the influence I have for Christ on the next generation.”
