Each of these workshops, which are designed for beginner and intermediate photographers, will be led by George Sass. After running his international advertising agency for more than 25 years, Sass started a second career as a photojournalist for the marine industry. Over 100 of his feature stories and photography were published in national magazines including Yachting, Power & Motoryacht, Yachts International, Cruising World, Passagemaker and more. Several of his stories have won magazine awards of excellence. Today, Sass mainly focuses on his fine art photography and exhibits his work in galleries and art organizations throughout Maryland where it has won numerous fine art awards.
Translating Life into Literature with Pete Fortenbaugh, and each of the upcoming photography workshops, are funded through CBMM’s Regional Folklife Center under the Maryland Traditions program of the Maryland State Arts Council.
