A photography exhibit is planned from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 24, at the Baker Branch Library. .

Local photographers Cathy Lewis Gabel, Frederick Schiele, Willie Williams and Robert Young will each showcase up to 20 photos at the one-day event.

Each photographer will have an opportunity to talk about their vision for the works and how others may access their works, a news release said. 

Light refreshments will be served.

Joyce Burges, former Baker council member, said she is seeking to create events and activities for the city, which is how the exhibit came into being.

"It can appear that the talents and passions of everyday citizens can go unnoticed or not even sought out," she said. "We want to do just the opposite and provide a platform for our citizens to reveal their skills and passions." 

Burges said she is working with a team of residents to spot talented people in the area, and the photo exhibit is one of four Entrepreneur Empowering Events to be held through the spring. Others will focus on authors, baking and candy. The group is also trying to hold an entrepreneur workshop for young people.

Gabel said she enjoys photographing nature and sees the beauty in everyday life. She works with a point-and-shoot camera and a simple editing program to create her works.

Schiele said he does event photography but nature and scenery are his first love.

“When I arrive at the designated location, I tend to zone out areas around me that everyone else seem to be focused on and I focus on that perfect spot for that perfect shot," he said. "It comes naturally to spend two or three hours studying my subject, documenting with a snap here and there."
