Inside Polk Cover Photographer receives National Recognition
Professional Photographer Magazine Feb. 2013
Regular readers of Inside Polk Magazine look forward to his work every month, and many Polk County families and businesses have his work on their walls, but this month Photographer Michael Potthast received national recognition. Our talented cover photographer was featured in the February 2013 issue of Professional Photographer magazine, along with a selection of his work. His image Her Majesty was featured on the cover of the magazine.
The story, written by Will Pollock, talks about the history of the Potthast family and their photographic talent, talent that lives on in Michael, the fourth generation of photographers in the family. Mike’s appreciation for history is evident in images such as Her Majesty, a photograph that was inspired by a reproduction of “Portrait of a Lady” by Rogier van der Weyden on the cover of an art book his father kept in his studio.
Inside Polk is proud to be associated with such a talented photographer and congratulates him on people across the nation discovering what we in Polk County have known for a long time.
