Pearsall’s empowering presentation draws upon the hardships she faced as a photographer, and woman, in combat. She’s documented some of the most dangerous battles of our time, has been injured in combat and survived to tell her story. More importantly, she lives to tell others’ stories. Hers is an amazing visual journey of personal and photographic growth. Not only do the images relate the story of the soldiers she’s documented, but also her own tale of friendships she made and tragically lost. You’ll learn how her path to recovery paved the road to her new mission in life, the Veterans Portrait Project.

Patrick Murphy-Racey: Sony Artisan

Armed with his B.A. in Photojournalism from Marquette University, his twenty-five year career has only and always been about photography. Murphy-Racey has seen a great variety of assignments since his start in newspapers, through the peak years of being a magazine freelancer, his tenure as a regular contributor to Sports Illustrated, and into the corporate and industrial world of annual reports and advertising. While his assignments are varied and come from many different sources, photojournalism is his first love and constantly informs every assignment. Ever the chameleon, Murphy-Racey’’s career is a long series of re-inventions and rebirths, but the visual storytelling remains the same, even as the tools change. From 4×5 to 4K, he’s technically inclined, and loves making great images. Patrick is more than competent covering just about any assignment, but his specialties include dramatic and creative use of strobe & LED lighting, sports action photography, environmental portraits, and powerful, well-lit HD interview video production. PM-R shoots both stills as well as motion and is always asking, “What'’s next?”
