Our June Speaker is Tom Wilson and the topic will be “Tom’s Favorite Nature Photo Spots in Georgia”!
If you enjoy learning about new places to take beautiful photos close to home, you won’t want
to miss Tom’s presentation! Not only will he tell you where these gems of nature can be found in
Georgia, but he’ll show you examples of the types of photos you can take.
Tom will present 35 of his favorite nature photo locations in Georgia with descriptions of the
kinds of photographic opportunities are available there, best times to go and basics on how to get there. Participants will be given a list of the locations and addresses that can be entered into
their phone or GPS for turn-by-turn directions.
