Todd and Brad Reed will present a Coffee at Ten presentation at the Crooked Tree Arts Center on Tuesday, February 11 beginning at 10 a.m. The Reeds are a father-son outdoor photography team based in Ludington, Michigan. Todd has been recording Michigan scenes for over 35 years. 23 of those years Todd spent as a photojournalist for the Ludington Daily News, where he won dozens of industry awards for his photos portraying the beauty and telling the stories of everyday life in small towns and rural areas. Todd's love of the Great Lakes was enriched by 33 years of service in the Coast Guard Reserve. In 1988, the U.S. Coast Guard honored him as top "Outstanding Enlisted Reservist" in the nation.
Brad's journey as a photographer started as a young boy. He jumped at every chance to carry his father's gear on photo shoots throughout the region. Brad practiced seeing the world through photographs and learned that extraordinary photography requires chasing the light and capturing the defining moment. After graduating from Calvin College with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and working on a Master's Degree in Social Work, Brad followed his heart and journeyed into the world of photography.
The presentation will show 120 photos of the 1014 photos from their new book Tuesdays with Todd and Brad Reed: A Michigan Tribute, a 2014 Michigan Notable Book. The Crooked Tree Arts Center is located downtown Petoskey at 461 E. Mitchell Street. For more information please call the Arts Center at 231-347-4337 or visit www.crookedtree.org.
