VGCC offers Photography class at Main Campus

Vance-Granville Community College will offer a four-hour class, entitled “Photography: A Natural Way of Seeing,” on the college’s Main Campus in Vance County.

Photographer Sue McGlothlin of Louisburg will teach the class over two Tuesdays, Oct. 1 and Oct. 8, from 6 until 8 p.m. each night.

“Growing up in Ketchikan, Alaska, I was inspired by the extraordinary sights of the Pacific Northwest from an early age,” McGlothlin said. “Essentially self-taught, I became interested in photography while living in California; however, raising three daughters while working outside the home didn’t allow much time to pursue my interest. In 2010, my architect husband and I bought a historic house and farm in Louisburg. I became inspired by the beauty and history that surrounds me in our new home. The technology of digital photography opened up a new world to me and I began taking pictures of the wildlife and historic buildings near our home. I enjoy finding the extraordinary in the ordinary and creating one of-a-kind images.” McGlothlin’s work has won a People’s Choice award in the Slow Exposures 2012 exhibition, has been featured on CNN’s Photo Blog and has graced the cover of Kitchen Drawer Illustrated Magazine.

Each student should bring a camera. The total cost per person, including all fees, is $29. Students must be age 16 years or older.
