We are thrilled to bring you a true Louisiana treasure as our next guest. Photographer/Storyteller CC Lockwood will join us on air January 12, 2016 at 6:00pm to talk technique, philosophy, give suggestions, and recount some memorable experiences from the uplands to the the swamps of Louisiana. If you don't know his work go to cclockwood.com for a visual treat. His latest book Louisiana Wild: The Protected and Restored Lands of The Nature Conservancy, published by Louisiana State University Press in September, showcases 220 color images from the more than sixty properties managed by The Nature Conservancy across Louisiana’s diverse and productive ecosystem. Lockwood presents a vivid photo narrative that journeys from the little-known Copenhagen Hills, a prairie habitat with the largest variety of woody plants in Louisiana; to the swampland lake of Cypress Island, with its massive rookery of roseate spoonbills and great egrets; to over a dozen other sites that showcase Louisiana’s distinct environs.
Check out some of the images CC has shared with us here. And remember you don't have to wait until the show on January 12 to get a taste of his works. CC is coming to our area.
