RPS Monthly Program Meeting with Speaker Judith Pishnery

Painting with Light and Night Photography

Where: ARC (Adult Recreation Center)
When: Tuesday, August 5, 2014, 7:00pm-8:30pm

Judith began her passion for photography while in high school and continues it today. As a professional photographer, Judith works on assignment for editorial, advertising and corporate clients. Not satisfied with just assignments, she has always had a variety of personal photography projects in the works. Her personal photographic art works have been exhibited and collected throughout the South East. Additionally, she has been teaching photography for more than 20 years at various art colleges throughout Atlanta and leads workshops in the US and Europe. She is currently a photography professor at the Savannah College of Art and Design’s Atlanta campus. After many years of teaching and working as a professional photographer, Judith recently completed an M.F.A. graduate degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design. She currently resides in a small town outside Atlanta, not unlike where she grew up in Pennsylvania, with her husband and two dogs.

In addition, she is an Advisory Board member with Atlanta Celebrates Photography (an annual photography festival) and has been involved on the Board of Directors since the early planning sessions in 1998.

Her company, Pisconeri Workshops provides expert, dynamic and creative learning experiences. The Workshops are an opportunity to learn from a professional photographer and educator through hands-on-instruction, field trips, and travel experiences, bringing together the worlds of photography, art, history, travel and exploration for the creative mind. Each workshop is specially designed to explore and experiment with techniques, methods and creative processes to expand the visual content and technical expertise of the photograph. Locations include: the Tuscan & Umbrian country-sides of Italy, Paris, Provence, and the Southeast US.
