makers monday :: Tory Williams

I’m so excited to highlight Tory Williams on another Makers Monday post!

I first met Tory during our Fall 2017 gathering — bright, bubbly, with a contagious smile and an abundance of wit, she’s effortless to be around. As the teacher of Portrait of the Artist, she asked Elizabeth and me if we wouldn’t mind being models for the afternoon session of her class. Admittedly, I was nervous having the cameras pointed directly at me, but Tory immediately put us at ease with light direction and encouragement…

Squam is the only place in the northeast where Tory teaches, and we are so grateful to have her share her passion for photography. If you click HERE for her website, you’ll find the breadth of her skills on display — from portraiture to events, from food to products — she has an incredible eye for capturing the moment. Tory is a natural-born teacher and we’ve received some truly wonderful feedback from her students —

“I had a great time in Tory’s class! She gave us a good foundation for expanding our photography skills; making the technical aspects easy to understand & giving us time to play with the creativity.” — Renée Callahan, East London Knit // Fall 2017

“I simply adore Tory’s spirit and energy and love her ability to teach something to all levels of participants and unite the class with the hands-on afternoon. What a fun and engaging class! I came away with so much more than I expected!” — Simone Kereit // Owl Cat Designs // Fall 2017

So, perhaps you’ve been daydreaming of Squam Lake this summer, and perhaps there’s a DSLR camera buried in your closet just waiting for the right moment to spring back to life… if both ring true, Tory’s class would be absolutely perfect for you!
