Peterson Lecture Series presents “In the Game: Four Photographic Professionals”
Monday, September 23, 2019
Commercial, portrait and sports photography will be the focus at the seventh annual Peterson Photography Lecture Series at St. Louis Community College at Meramec.
“In the Game: Four Photographic Professionals” includes Kimberly Chapman-Peluso, Scott Rovak, Tom Tussey and Marian Wyse.
Kimberly Chapman-Peluso was given her first camera at a young age. Since then, she’s never very far from a camera. She has participated in juried art shows and gallery exhibits in the St. Louis area. Through pictures, she tells different stories. “I love the unique, interesting and fun things that others do not see as I do.”
Scott Rovak has been a professional photographer for more than 35 years. His specialty is sports, and he’s a team photographer for the St. Louis Blues and St. Louis Cardinals. He’s a contract photographer for USA Today Sports Images.
For more than 40 years, Tom Tussey has developed and enhanced his passion for photography, and especially appreciates people and travel as his subjects. He learned digital photography at STLCC-Meramec. His work ranges from architecture to events, business and family portraits, weddings, and most interestingly, food. Tussey opened his first studio in 1979.
The photographic interests of Marian Wyse are landscape, street, urban and night images – in color, black and white, and infrared. Her experience includes film, digital, 35 mm and forensic photography of arson scenes. After 25 years as a professional firefighter in Baytown, Texas, she retired.
The lecture series - sponsored by Kristen Peterson, a retired photographer and long-time STLCC student at the Center for Visual Technology - was developed to introduce students, faculty and the community to the work of local photographers of distinction, and to “encourage and inspire students to pursue and complete a degree at STLCC.”
The series serves to showcase the array of creative photography in the St. Louis area, and provide professional and networking opportunities for students who are enrolled in the Center for Visual Technology at STLCC-Meramec.
