Photo above by Billy Hunt
If you live in or near Charlottesville and are interested in photography, you should try to catch Charlottesville Photo Night. To find out more about it, and when the next event is, check their web site at http://www.cvillephotonight.org .
This last Wednesday was a show and talk by Billy Hunt. It was his photographs of CLAW, which stands for the Charlottesville Lady Arm Wrestlers. However, CLAW events are designed to raise money for various causes. Look here; http://clawville.wordpress.com/ .
Billy Hunt gave a very animated talk on his experience as photographer for these events. Covering the event involved not only photography, but also “changing hats” to provide the music with a band. Between the photos and Billy’s story it was easy to get a feel for the wildness of a CLAW event.
