A special thank you to all of the volunteers. Without their help this would have never happened. I especially need to thank The Williamson Museum and Executive Director Mickie Ross and Museum Curator Ann Evans who were instrumental in making the Georgetown Texas Photography Festival even happen. Christine Tomaszewski kept me on track with the many reality checks and reminding me what the important issues were that needed to be done first. Thanks to all y'all for making my dream a reality.
The featured photographers showed some amazing photos and truly brought the Georgetown Texas Photograhy Festival to life. Rudy Ximenez was in the Mesquite Creek Outfitters. Rudy's dynamic personality wowed our guests with his photos and stories. Carol Hutchison and her husband Doug showcased Carol's photos from their book "Behind the Texas Badge". They are both great people and were a huge asset to the festival. Carols photos will be on display all the month of March 2019 in the Williamson Museum. If you get a chance drop by. Earl Nottingham who is the Chief Photographer for Texas Parks and Wildlife was certainly one of the highlights with his beautiful photos of Texas. Todd White not only displayed some of his fashion photography but brought along a few models for anyone to photograph. That was fun for sure. Todd also produced our informational video about the Georgetown Texas Photography Festival. That video alone reached over 3000 viewers. Thanks Todd for stepping up in-spite of your busy schedule. Harrison Funk, what can I say, when you say "Rock Star" you have to think about how Harrison has captured some of the most iconic images of Rock Stars. Thanks Harrison for your participation and friendship. Now Linda Nickell in a class of her own with all of her Instagram friends and followers. Thanks Linda for showing a lot of young women your great photos and inspiring them to step out on their own. Linda brought her crew along and was a great part of the Georgetown Texas Photography Festival.
Precision Camera and Video were gracious enough to support us with their presence and ideas. Really can't thank them enough for their support. Nikon USA and Brein Aho showed the new Nikon Mirrorless Z6 and Z7 cameras. Brien helped many photographers by answering hundreds of questions. Thanks Brien. I think you said I could borrow a Nikon some time. I'll give you a call.
We are now planning a bigger and better Georgetown Texas Photography Festival 2020.
