On Saturday, Sept. 24, photographers of all skill levels will convene at Brick at Blue Star Arts Complex for the first annual 4×5 Photo Fest.

The free, one-day festival, named for the four events and five educational talks with acclaimed photographers from across the country, aims to teach and create invaluable connections for the photography community in San Antonio.

Local artist Shannon Gowen, editorial and commercial photographer Josh Huskin, and Rivard Report Photo Editor Scott Ball came together over a cup of coffee to form 4×5 Photo Fest outside of their day jobs.
