Published DateGILFORD — Gilford photographer Emery Swanson will have a gallery showing of his work at Awakenings Espresso Cafe, 1429 Lakeshore Rd, Gilford, during the month of February.
Swanson is a founding member of the Gilford Clickers photography club, and two years ago formed his own company, which specializes in Landscape and floral photography for businesses and homes. His work features images primarily from the Lakes Region area.
"I joined the Clickers photography club for something to do once a month", says Swanson, "but that has blossomed into an all-consuming passion. After encouragement from my family, Istarted doing art fairs as a way to turn this passion into some extra income. But after doing that, I realized that I get the biggest personal satisfaction from seeing people look at my work and smile. Or listen to them reminisce about going to some of the places in my pictures. I love the stories. I get so charged up when I see that my work has touched someone."
