Speaking at APG Meeting tonight

I am a member of APG, Athens Photography Guild, in Athens, GA.

I have the honor tonight to give the monthly presentation.  I will be speaking about, “Make Your Images POP”.  Below is the official release from the APG website.

October meeting is Thursday the 17th from 7-8:30 pm in the Community Room of the Lyndon House. The guest speaker will be APG MEMBER JOE MYERESS.
Joe will be putting on a show and demonstration that will help you “Make Your Images Pop” through the use of Photoshop or Lightroom plugins and filters. Joe plans to show just how quick and easy it is to either enhance, or totally change, the look and feel of what you capture in the camera.

Joe has been a professional photographer for over 30 years. While serving in the US Navy as a photographer, Joe spent two years documenting special events at the White House during the Bush administration. Joe now leads the photography team at a national computer and electronics chain.

About Me

I started life at a young age.

I have always been a visual person.  I remember things better based on how I saw them.  I guess it’s not surprising that I would have a career in something visual. I have been a photographer for 30 years.   The highlights are many, but the key ones dearest to me, are:


  • Served in The United States NAVY as a photographer for 5 years. (PH2, E-5)
  • I was 1 of 10 chosen military photographers to photograph President George H. Bush’s Inauguration.  These images would become part of the National Archives.
  • Photographed the Summit at the White House between President George Bush and President Mikhail Gorbachev of the Soviet Union.


Over the years, I worked in different areas of the photo field.  I photographed weddings, models, landscapes, concerts, sports, and tabletop. I have won many awards, both local and National, and have been published in magazines and newspapers.


Now, as I get older, I enjoy photographing nature, landscapes and travel more.  I currently work as a Senior Photographer for a national retailer.  I photograph the items that appear in their catalogs and ads and on their websites. www.tigerdirect.com, www.compusa.com and www.circuitcity.com .


This year there will be a lot of travel shooting.  Many trips have already been planned.  I’ll be traveling with my beautiful wife, Angela.  As we travel the US, I’ll be posting images here for all to see. Giving everyone the chance to see what beauty the world has to offer.
