The Seabrook Island Photo Club proudly presents Keith and Tiffany Briley as their guest speakers for the Photo Club meeting on May 17 at 6:30 pm at the Lake House. Keith and Tiffany will bring their unique blend of experiences and professionalism and discuss ways you can establish your photographic style and grow and feed your creativity.
Keith is an internationally award winning and published professional photographer. His images can be found in many stores throughout the country. Additionally, Keith is the official US gear tester for Landscape Photography Magazine. Keith is also the owner and operator of Charleston Photography Tours. Keith has an abundance of passion for most things in life; God, his family (including their four dogs), music, critters of every kind and photography. He is a firm believer of living in the moment. His vision is to hopefully share some of the emotions and have you wonder what he experienced while capturing the moment. He believes that photographs work when people feel, even for a moment, that they are somewhere else, taking them far from the pressures of everyday life. Keith’s advice for fellow photographers: ‘Don’t let rules or the work of others intimidate you. Of course there’s something to be said for the perfect composition, but if you shoot because you’re trying to impress or obtain the highest score, you will soon be robbed of the passion you once had’.

Tiffany, also an award winning and published professional photographer, grew up in the beautiful province of Alberta, Canada. While living in Canada and playing in the Canadian Rockies, she developed her love for the wilderness and adventure. It’s also no coincidence that she found her passion for photography, specifically capturing the beauty and magic of landscapes. Her passion and talent has led her to receive the distinguished title of Diamond Photographer of the Year, from the Professional Photographers Association in both 2011 and 2013. This is a rare honor and difficult achievement. She has received her Masters of Photography from the PPA. Tiffany also is the Director of Advertising for the world’s leading online photography magazine, Landscape Photography Magazine and Wild Planet Photo Magazine. In addition, Tiffany is also a contributing writer for LPM. Along with Keith, she too has many images that can be found in stores across the country. Close to Tiffany’s heart is her faith and her family.
