The Photographic Society of Chattanooga will hold its annual Open House on Thursday, Oct. 21 at the St. John United Methodist Church, 3921 Murray Hills Dr. in Chattanooga, with special guest J. Scott Graham.
Officials said, "For more than three decades, Mr. Graham has carved a unique path, combining the art of photography with creative business acumen to become one of this country’s most successful artists. While Scott has worked with many national parks, historic sites, state parks and tourist destinations across North America, he is most well-known for his legendary photographs of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
"Through his popular product lines, Mr. Graham has published more images and sold more products featuring the Southern Appalachians than anyone else in the world. Scott’s reach also extends to more tropical locales, as some of his most significant work can be found in the Caribbean. From San Juan National Historic Site to El Yunque National Forest, his timeless photographs portray and protect locations of significant world history and lands of immense biodiversity.
During his presentation, Mr. Graham will be answering the question that every aspiring artist wants to know: “How do I make money doing what I love?” Social time will begin at 6 p.m. and the presentation will begin at 7 p.m. Visitors are welcome.
Refreshments will be served and drawings will be held for door prizes. Berrie Smith will be on site to clean camera sensors for a fee. Come out and join the fun, food and photography.
