2016 12 EricOn January 16, 2018, at Central Chapter in Griffin, GA, Eric Bowles will talk about great places to photograph on and around Jekyll Island.  The meeting will begin at 6:30 PM at the Women’s Center, Spalding Regional Hospital. Members as well as interested potential members are invited.

We’ve all seen great images of exotic places and wildlife, but we have a wonderful photography destination close to home.  The coast of Georgia is a wonderful place to explore and photograph.  We’ll talk about two coastal locations - Jekyll Island and the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge.  These areas provide wonderful photo opportunities for landscapes, wildlife, and travel photographers. Jekyll Island is also the site of the upcoming GNPA Expo in April 2018 and we’ll have trips to the Okefenokee as part of the Expo.

Let’s take a look at the photo opportunities available.  Where do you go?  What will you see?  What equipment is needed?  What are some of the techniques you’ll use?  We’ll explore the area, share some images, and give you a chance to learn more about photography around the Marshes of Glynn and the Land of the Trembling Earth.
