We're pleased to have photographer Marci Tressel conducting the photo shoot. She came to the Hilton Head for a vacation in 1972, from Ohio, and never left. Her interest in photography began in college and became a passion during her studies with Minor White. Studying with Minor changed her life. It opened her to the amazing beauty and spirituality within common objects and taught her how to connect and capture the intimacy of the moment. Tressels’ work has been awarded in many juried art shows and has found homes within corporate and private collections throughout the world. Her work can be viewed locally at The Maye River Gallery, Bluffton, SC, The HH Art League and in 2012-13 Coastal Isles Magazine. ?Visit her website at
