Businesses around the Square will host a showcase of photography March 16 as part of the Georgetown Texas Photography Festival.
Produced in partnership with the Williamson Museum, the inaugural festival features exhibitions from several photographers who will display and sell their work at local restaurants and stores. Participating businesses include Mesquite Creek Outfitters, Roots Bistro, Pink Poppy, Kenz Guitars, All Things Kids and Greenhouse Craft Foods.
“Georgetown is a picturesque community,” said David Valdez, an event organizer and former chief official White House photographer during the George H. W. Bush administration. “This is an opportunity for many photographers to come to Georgetown, take photos, meet other photographers and spend some time together on the square and maybe find a new place to eat and visit.”
The free festival starts with an 8 a.m. photo walk on the Main Street along the east side of the Williamson County Courthouse. Attendees can take photos on the Square with guidance from Valdez. The festival continues until 4 p.m.
Throughout the day, attendees can talk with photographers, take part in a photography demonstration and have questions answered by Precision Camera and Nikon professionals, Valdez said.
