Photographer has first exhibit at Parkersburg WesBanco
PARKERSBURG — When Pete Myers retired from Camden Clark Memorial Hospital, he became a serious photographer.
Until his retirement three years ago, his photography was a casual hobby of about 20 years, such as taking sunrise pictures at the beach. Myers’ exhibit at WesBanco will be his first official exhibit with the exception of exhibiting at some craft fairs.
He is self-taught and has a love of photography and being able to take up-close pictures to see the intricate parts of petals, insides of flowers or close-up photos of animals. With his new level of photography he has increased his subject matter and expertise.
“My eye for taking pictures of flowers where you can see rain drops or dew drops on the petals, to capturing a bumble bee collecting nectar from a bloom on a garden plant or landscaping, is what I want to share my passion with the community,” Myers said.
The Pete Myers photography exhibit may be viewed during June at WesBanco Bank, 415 Market St., from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday.
