MARISA MEISTERS has lived in Georgia since 2007, most of that time in Milton. She has loved photography since owning her first point and shoot 35 mm film camera as a child. She enjoys photographing wildlife, nature, historical sites and people, and has visited 6 continents so far.
Some of Marisa’s most memorable travel experiences include taking her tour group hiking to see chimpanzees and gorillas (on separate days) in Uganda and Rwanda. Marisa has long been inspired by Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey, and experiencing a little bit of their passion first hand is something she plans to do again. Marisa has also been cage diving with great white sharks in South Africa, and has hiked some of the original Inca pathways at Machu Picchu.
In 2014, Marisa self-published a children’s book, Adventures of Pachy, which features her photographs of wildlife. Through the book, she hopes to inspire children to care about wildlife and nature. https://amzn.to/2R1SqVd
THOMAS YACKLEY’s lifelong fascination with photography began when he joined his high school newspaper staff in 1973. The position included taking photos with a 35mm SLR camera and developing black and white images in the darkroom. He’s been shooting digital and developing on the computer since 1999. He is a member of the Professional Photographers Association and the Georgia Nature Photographers Association.
Digital photo painting is among his favorite techniques. The natural world is a favorite theme in his images. Besides shooting landscapes and wildlife, Thomas enjoys photographing families and babies, and teaching photography through his business, Yackley Photo.
Along with his wife, Robin Yackley, Thomas is Co-Artistic Director of the Alpharetta Community Chorus and leads the Park Place Social Singers.
Acclaimed photographer Greg Lawson described Yackley’s work as “lovely.” “I can see the musical qualities associated with your personal history energetically entwined in the imagery as well.” Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
