What's Happening in PSC

Welcome to the Photographic Society of Chattanooga


PSC Guest Speaker

Jan 15, 2014  

Photography awakens us to the experience of being ALIVE. See ALIVE.photography. Paul Hassell has embarked on a fascinating collaborative project interviewing dozens of the most talented outdoor photographers in the industry. His conversations center around why these pros do what they do. Picture this presentation as 25 of the greatest names (Dewitt Jones, Rob Sheppard, Clyde Butcher, and Joe and Mary Ann McDonald to name a few) packing the auditorium to inspire you and fan the flame of your creativity in this wild art of photography.

For a small teaser, see THIS VIDEO on NANPA's blog.


Paul Hassell isn't strictly a photographer. Paul is in the light business.

An entrepreneur since the age of fifteen, a lover of solitude, and a loyal friend, Paul defies convention at every turn. You'll walk away from talking photography with him, and you'll have the sense that Paul is doing what he was created to do. This at-home-ness in himself and his craft becomes a kind of permission for others to find their vocations and live them.

Paul found what makes him tick and organized his life around that calling. He designed his own major at The University of TN: Freelance Photography and Writing for the Natural Environment. That's a mouthful. He's a member of NANPA, SANP, and the NSA, but the credentials matter less to him than sharing the profound experience. He points the way to a bigger truth and deeper reality.

Paul is the proud owner of Light Finds, Inc. Paul has been published in National Parks Magazine, Time/Life, Nature's Best, and National Geographic books. Learn more at www.LightFinds.Us
