FLORENCE, S.C. — Julie Mixon, a Francis Marion University professor of photography, won first place in the 2021 Pee Dee Regional Art Competition.

Mixon received the $1,000 prize for her image transfer work, “Envelop(e).”

Canon’s Technical Advisor is a Photographer Through and Through

Drew MacCallum is Canon’s Technical Advisor and one of my go-to resources for complicated camera questions. I also happen to follow him on Instagram, which is where I noticed he started posting some stellar bird photos.

ENCAMPMENT, WYOMING, USA, February 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — A recently released photography book, “Encampment, Wyoming: Selections from the Lora Webb Nichols Archive 1899-1948”, features 115 photographs created and collected by a homesteader/photographer in the early 20th century. Lora Webb Nichols was an entrepreneur who used photography to provide financial stability for herself and her family for several decades in rural Wyoming before, during and after the Great Depression. Culled from over 24,000 photographs, the selected images in the book provide a dynamic visual window into the American West from a female perspective and highlight the social, domestic, and economic aspects of the Wyoming frontier.

Nichols received her first camera in 1899 at the age of 16, coinciding with the rise of the region’s copper mining boom. As early as 1906, Nichols was working for hire as a photographer for industrial documentation and family portraits, developing and printing from
