Shutterbugs will meet on Tuesday, March 11, 2008

When the Shutterbugs last met on Feb. 12th, Melba Brown, Linda Best, and Harolyn Castleberry used a PowerPoint presentation to share some of the beautiful photos they took while on a recent trip to Italy. Attendees enjoyed seeing the work of these talented Shutterbugs and are anticipating the next regular meeting on March 11th, when they will see images captured by award-winning photographer, Scott Ash, the featured speaker for the evening. The public is invited to attend. Photo by Johnnie Ann Gaskill
The West Central Georgia Shutterbugs will meet on Tuesday, March 11, 6:30 p.m. at the Thomaston-Upson Arts Council (TUAC) Gallery, located on the courthouse square. Award-winning photographer, Scott Ash of Peachtree City, will be the guest speaker. On his website, http://www.wanderlustphotography.com/, Scott says that wherever his job as an international pilot takes him, he sets aside time to hike and to take pictures. Therefore, he has a collection of beautiful images that express the joy he felt when he captured them. “Nearly every photo has a story behind it,” Scott says, “which reminds me of the hike taken, people met, places seen, weather experienced, or other unique challenges I faced on that particular day.”

Scott joins a growing list of excellent photographers who have been invited to showcase their work during Shutterbugs meetings and to discuss the techniques they used to capture the images. Other photographers have been invited to speak at future meetings because Shutterbugs want to learn from “the best” how to take better photos.

Shutterbugs met for the first time in January 2006, with 10 persons present. Currently, there are 26 members of various ages and skill levels, who reside either in Lamar, Pike, Spalding, or Upson County. Members welcome other photographers, from beginners to professionals. For more information, contact Shutterbugs President, Johnnie Ann Gaskill, at 706-646-4170.
