I'll be the contrarian, at least with respect to the resume, given that it appears you don't have "typical" artist training. I love reading how people come to their photography from other fields, especially when those fields seem opposite to right brain thinking. Maybe it just makes me think I could do it too. Most of all, I like hearing how other incorporate their social/technical/whatever background into their photography (although that veers into the artist statement).

I'd keep it short and sweet and not use the usual resume format. Just a paragraph that describes your background (including education) and how you got to the point of hanging your prints on that gallery's wall.

So, for example, if those classes with known photographers encourage you to pursue photography aggressively they should be highlighted. If not, they might be just mentioned.
