The Seabrook Island Photography Club proudly welcomes photographer Janet Garrity Saucier as their guest speaker on Thursday, September 20, at 6:30 pm at the Lake House.
Janet Garrity Saucier is an author and photographer, originally from Upstate New York, now living in Brevard, NC, by way of Beaufort, SC. While growing up in the countryside near Cooperstown, NY, Janet had a camera in her hand from the young age of eight.
Having to make a living in her adult years, Janet chose a long, professional career in marketing and advertising in Ithaca, NY, before moving to Beaufort in 2008. There she found the inspiration to take up her camera again, this time professionally, and published her first book Goin’ Down The River, Fish Camps of the Sea Islands, a photographic story about a unique southern coastal tradition.
Janet and her husband, Les Saucier, have merged their photography and business skills and have recently published a new photographic book about the Southern Appalachian Mountains. The book is titled Mountain Blue and is filled with both Les and Janet’s photos, writings about the mountains, and even a few recipes for a home cooked “Mountain Meal.”
Her topic will be Abstract in Photography. She will look at the use of graphic design elements, examples of landscapes that can be made more interesting using an abstract approach, and the techniques.
The meeting will begin at 6:30 pm and all members and non-members are welcome. There is a $10 guest fee for non-members.
