News and Information
MEETING: Our next meeting is on March 21, 2019, and will feature a presentation by CPG member Jim Squires. He’ll be talking about ethics in photography: a photographer’s responsibilities for accuracy and integrity when taking, manipulating, and displaying images, whether you’re working on street photography or photographing wildlife. Join us at 7:00 PM at Glynn Visual Arts, 106 Island Drive, Saint Simons Island, Georgia.
Thanks to everyone who came out to our February meeting! Barbara Northrup gave a fantastic presentation on going pro: all the considerations that go into deciding how to pursue photography as a business, and many possibilities for selling your work. From photos on tennis shoes to selling images to stock photography companies, we came away with lots of ideas for how we can make some spare cash or a living while pursuing our creative passion. Our homework assignment for the month: send us one or two photos and tell us where or how you’d sell it. Fine art galleries? Getty images? You can even show us a mockup of the photo on a shower curtain or blanket! Find more information about the assignment and how to submit your photos here.
CURRENT EXHIBITS: Congratulations to CPG member Carol Ann Wages, who will have a solo exhibit at the Horton Gallery for the month of March. It will feature none other than Edgar Winter, the infamous rare white morph squirrel that calls our area home. Carol has captured many gorgeous photos of his antics throughout the years. Come see what he’s been up to!
