Our guest speaker this evening is Rick Gerrity from Panasonic, with his presentation “Capturing the Soul of your Subject in a Portrait”.

This evening is being sponsored by Panasonic. Prior to the presentation, Panasonic reps will be on hand to display and discuss some of their latest equipment.

Presentation Outline
Join Panasonic/Lumix Global Ambassador Rick Gerrity as he explains how to get your subject to be relaxed while creating a memorable natural portrait. The objective in this presentation is to establish common ground with your subject. Once this is achieved your subject can be himself or herself and not be nervous. He will discuss gear and settings used to create his images. This approach works on friends, family and total strangers as well.

Rick has been a published, professional photographer based in the New York / New Jersey metro area for over 30 years.  “I specialize in people, product, location and street photography throughout the US and Canada and I have a passion for transforming seemingly ordinary, everyday moments into extraordinary images.”  His images of people include Paul Newman, Sylvester Stallone and Oliver Stone, as well as real-life reflections of street life in America’s cities and towns, which he calls, “Hybrid photography at its best. Video and stills combined for the ultimate storytelling experience.” Rick’s commercial images include work for BMW, Panasonic, IBM, Sony and Oleg Cassini. He is the owner of Gerrity Photographic Inc / Rick Gerrity Photography.
