Lauralee Humes: Her photographic journey
Jun 20 @ 9:30 pm – 11:00 pm

“This is not a workshop on techniques, but a very personal perspective where I bare my early images and photographic journey to the present in hopes of encouraging or inspiring others to be true to themselves in life and as a photographer, and to go confidently in the direction of their dreams knowing their photographs make a difference in their life and the lives of others. I encourage questions during the presentation.”
