Our focus is on the written word. What about the visuals? Lakeland Local never had a design that I felt could focus on the photographs. The beautiful images from Tom Hagerty were often lost in the quick turn-around of the articles.
Recently, I realized we needed a Lakeland Local for the photographers in our midst. Those who see Lakeland in 1000-word bites. Enter SnapLakeland.com. Much like Lakeland Local, we hope to make it the place for all Lakelanders to express their vision, to promote their work.
We’ve started with a small cadre of photographers whose work I’ve long admired: Laura Davis, David Dickey, Matthew Dockery, Wayne Koehler, Dean Koulogianes, Michael Maguire, Bob Rosinsky, and, of course, Tom Hagerty. There isn’t a strict publishing schedule at SnapLakeland. The photographers will add photos as the mood strikes. Check pack often to see some of their favorite photographs of Lakeland and Lakelanders.

If you’re a Lakeland-based photographer and would like to promote your work, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. [/box]
