SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Art Wolfe faces the same challenge every time he picks up a camera: boiling down a 360-degree landscape into a single photographic image that makes its viewer want to save the environment. Wolfe, the subject of a 13-part television series to be released later this year, will lead a two-day seminar on photography this weekend in Shepherdstown. The Potomac Valley Nature Photographers, part of the Potomac Valley Audubon Society, are organizing the event. The 55-year-old Seattle native said he plans to share how he's found success as an artist and will discuss 30 years worth of his work.

HAGERSTOWN Joe Byers is planning a special road trip this summer to Alaska with his stepgrandson - a journey steeped in memories for the retired Washington County educator. "In 1963, my grandfather took me to Alaska," Byers said, describing the four-month odyssey as his boy-to-man summer. "We drove up and back in a very small camper. " Along the way, Byers, 59, and his grandfather saw and captured many wonders of nature on film, awakening in the teen a love of nature, hunting, fishing and photography that have stayed with him through his life.

Monika Wertman has always known she wanted to work in a creative field. In high school, she concentrated on art and wanted to be an architect, until a guidance counselor talked her out of it. “There was no doubt in my mind. I've always done something artistic one way or the other,” Wertman said from her Valleybrook Drive home in Hagerstown. It's been a long journey, though. Wertman got married and raised three children, who now range in age from 16 to 25. Her husband of 27 years, Carl Wertman, was in the U.S. Army, so the family moved often.

Who knew that an $800 camera would be just the ticket for a local high school graduate to gain access to the red carpet at this year's Billboard Music Awards? Brennan Elliott, a member of the Chambersburg Area Senior High School class of 2009, asked his parents Warren and Donna Elliott for a camera last Christmas. The camera was to serve a practical purpose - to take photographs and shoot videos for Stereobreed Media Studios in Chambersburg, where he is employed. Elliott uses the name Brennan Pierson professionally, because an actor already uses the name Brennan Elliott, he said.
