“Appalachian Trail Adventures” by Kayla Epperhart
Photo Program July 16 – King Library, Sevierville, TN
The LeConte Photographic Society is pleased to present a photo program by Kayla Epperhart. She will discuss her adventures along the Appalachian Trail. She hiked the entire trail in 2015 and it took just over 6 months. She will share with us photos and stories of why she did it, how she survived this long hike and about the people she met along the way.
Kayla grew up on the "Plateau" in Crossville, TN next to mountains and a cow pasture. In 2006, she moved to Knoxville to attend Johnson Bible College a.k.a. Johnson University. She married after dating for one year while in college. After graduating with a degree in Bible and TESOL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language), she and her husband fell into a lucky business transaction allowing them to purchase a video game store in South Knoxville. The store was so successful that the following year, they decided to purchase a second video game store in Boone, North Carolina and also open up a vapor/electronic cigarette store in South Knoxville. Her marriage hit bottom in 2014, and early 2015 she decided to hike the Appalachian Trail. Having the time apart allowed her and her husband to finally come to the decision to divorce. She finished hiking on October 2, 2015 and now lives in St. Louis, Missouri with her boyfriend, whom she met on the trail. They're both working and saving up for their next adventure.

FROM DEE MURPHY: I wanted to give you titles on two books I highly recom
mend toward being a professional photographer. One is a yearly issue of Photographer's Market, published by the Reader's Digest Books (aslo available at library reference section).
One issue could be good for years and will give you many sources for
your photos. I want to add, ALWAYS make a contact first. Do not send
your work anywhere until you have assurance the publisher is interested
and follow their guidelines carefully.
The second book I recommend is for selling an image to a client. PRICING PHOTOGRAPHY, The Complete Guide to Assignment & Stock Prices. This is by Michal Heron and David MacTavish.
you have any field trip ideas, please contact Cindy. We are always
looking for local, regional and national outing opportunities. None too
small and none too big!
