Faculty & Staff


Sara Bakker

Technician: Photography

Bachelor of Art – Memorial University
Diploma in Photography – NBCCD
“My door is usually open, I try to make myself available. I show by example, and let the students know that it is okay to have questions, it’s no big deal; I’m here to help. I take the cameras out and I test them, or I sit and work on weird photo projects, so that the students can see and get interested in them too.”

Sara Bakker is the Studio Technician for Photography. She is there to help students troubleshoot in the studio, and she maintains and prepares the equipment in the lighting studio, print room, and dark room.

Sara purchased her first DSLR camera with the stipend she received for being the student newspaper photographer at Memorial University. This drew her to the Photography program at NBCCD. She has taken part in NBCCD student and faculty shows in The George Fry Gallery, The New Brunswick Museum, The Saint John City Gallery and the Charlotte Street Arts Centre and her work has been auctioned through Isaac’s Way to help underprivileged children access art classes.

She was recently a guest artist at Connaught Street School, where she taught fifth grade students to make lumen prints – a project that was displayed at the Government House gallery. In addition to her work at the College, she runs her own photography business, Sara Bakker Photography.

Sara’s Superpower: She is considered in the department to be an Adobe Lightroom guru, and she has a special ability to fix stubborn fluorescent lights with just a touch of her hand.
