The Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower in Hartford is hosting a local photographer today, who will be offering tips of the trade to photographers of any experience level. Dave Merritt specializes in animal and landscape photography, and is the photographer for the Gateway East Artists Guild.
He is also one of the freelance photographers working with the St. Louis Zoo and Missouri Botanical Gardens. Tower Manager Amy Curry says he will hold sessions at noon, and another at 1pm.
The tower is currently operating under its winter hours of Friday and Saturdays from 9:30am-5pm, and Sundays from noon - 5pm. Curry says the tower will be open on Monday, Martin Luther King Day, from 9:30am-5pm, since schools are closed for the holiday.
