RPS Monthly Program Meeting with Speaker Jeff Roffman
Topic: Children
Where: ARC (Adult Recreation Center)
When: Tuesday, October 6, 2015, 7:00pm-8:30pm

A little about our speaker:

"It all began with a job I adored: an L-shaped desk, buzzing fluorescent lights, and a never-ending supply of slightly off-white walls. Yup, that just about cured me. It was off to art school...

Shortly after graduating, we opened shop in the vibrant neighborhood of Poncey Highland. Our industrial loft has such character--old hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, and huge windows with beautiful natural light. We specialize in baby and children portraiture, wedding photography, and a wide range of commercial projects."

Jeff received his Master's in Commercial Photography at Savannah College of Art and Design. He has made Atlanta his home and proudly serves as the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra's house photographer.
