World Renowned Photo Journalist To Host Metairie Mac Meeting
METAIRIE, LA – Internationally renowned British freelance photo journalist, and New Orleans local, Charlie Varley, will be the guest speaker at tonight’s New Orleans Macintosh User Group’s meeting, at Shear Systems, 4524 Shores Dr., Suite 13, Metairie, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
The NOMUG meeting is free and open to the public.
Varley’s “2014 in Review” will mark his 10th anniversary of his annual December presentations to the group. Every year, Varley features a selection of photographs he has taken throughout the current year and provides a narration of the circumstances and events that led to his taking of each photograph.
Varley has captured world events with his cameras in Afghanistan, Kashmir, Hong Kong, Nepal and throughout the Gulf South photo documenting Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill. Varley shot stills for Spike Lee and his documentary movies “When the Levees Broke” and “If God is Willing and Da Creek Don't Rise,” and his images appear in Chris Rose's original version of the book “One Dead in Attic.”
He is represented by SIPA Press in New York and Paris and by the Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in New Orleans.
Varley is also an avid Mac user and is known to take his souped-up MacBook Pro with him everywhere he goes, using it to process and transmit his photographs to top magazines, newspapers and TV networks around the world.
After the presentation, the NOMUG meeting, sponsored by the New Orleans Macintosh User Group and Shear Systems, continues at Café East Restaurant.
