Turner with his students in Baku. The photo was taken by one of the participants. Local photographer Jim Turner is used to shooting on-location in far off lands. He’s been on photo shoots in London and in Scotland, but nothing like his most recent adventure to Baku, Azerbaijan and it was all because of a recent Bethany College international exchange student. Turner conducted a five-day photography class in January in Baku called “Magic in the Moment,” that was hosted in part by the American Embassy and coordinated by Lamiya Korchiyeva, a former Bethany College student. Korchiyeva attended Bethany College in 2012 with the Global UGRAD Exchange Program. She was a photography student of Turner’s when he taught at the college as an adjunct professor. “We started talking about this when she was a student here about three years ago,” Turner said. “I pretended like I knew where Azerbaijan was and said I would go there, but I didn’t really think it would ever happen.”
