APA Atlanta is thrilled to sponsor ATL Photo Night, an event featuring photographer speakers on the third Thursday of every month at 7pm at Facet Gallery.

On Thursday, May 18th, ATL Photo Night is excited to have Peter Essick as their guest. Come out and learn about his creative process.

Named one of the 40 most influential nature photographers in the world by Outdoor Photography Magazine, Essick has worked as an editorial photographer over the last two decades. His goal is to make photographs that move beyond mere documentation to reveal in careful compositions the human impact of development as well as the enduring power of the land. Essick has photographed stories on many environmental issues including climate change, high-tech trash, nuclear waste, freshwater and ecological restoration. Essick has photographed over 40 stories for National Geographic Magazine.
