Capturing Art: Tim Douglass

Capturing Art: Fidelis Studios and Tim Douglass

by Sarah Kinzbach

The photographs for the Art979 feature stories in this month’s magazine owe their creativity to Tim Douglass of Fidelis Studios. Often dressed in plaid and most frequently seen behind a camera lens, Tim approached this month’s shoot as a form of introduction. “I wanted to keep everything relatively clean and professional, while showing off who these people are beneath the titles,” comments Tim.

The shoot was very open-ended, says Tim. “For this particular shoot, I didn’t really have any single source I went to look at to figure out what I wanted to do. I was really excited about the subjects because they were all people I highly respect.”

Literary Arts: Brazos Writers

Brazos Writers nuture those devoted to the written word.

by Sarah Kinzbach

Writing can be daunting. Whether a paper for school, a proposal for work, or a novel for the masses, the writing required to create such a work can appear formidable in its infancy. Enter the Brazos Writers, an eclectic group of local writers dedicated to supporting, educating, and encouraging both the written word and all of us who have ever experienced “writer’s block.”

“Writing is a very solitary pursuit,” says Ann Kellett, Ph.D., president of the Brazos Writers. “[The group] provides a supportive atmosphere for aspiring writers.”

The Brazos Writers began in 1987 as an outlet for writers to exchange ideas, learn, mentor and network. With members including published professors and staff from Texas A&M University, successful commercial authors, and aspiring writers, the group provides a wealth of experience, knowledge, and writing diversity.
