In the Field with Peter Essick

Last November I had the opportunity to spend the day at a local nature reserve with National Geographic photographer, Peter Essick. The day could not have been better! Peter was recently named one of the 40 most influential nature photographers in the world by Outdoor Photography Magazine. How wonderful for us that he lives right here in the Atlanta area.

Peter has also been working with the Serenbe Photography Center for the past few years leading workshops in the field. For those who love nature photography and get out there on a regular basis to shoot -- the opportunity to shoot with someone like Peter is an awesome experience. The Fall Colors Workshop is coming up again -- and it is almost sold out! People began signing up for this as soon as we put it on the schedule last summer.

Last year I also brought along my son.  He is usually shooting race photos and drifting -- but I think he had a great time that day also. Fall color, along the Chattahoochee, with a National Geographic photographer all day -- who could ask for more.
