Photojournalist Ray Marklin was a guest speaker for the third annual Peterson Lecture Series on Oct. 13. The sponsor, Kristen Peterson who is an alumn of STLCC, was in attendance as well as other alumni, students and the general public. “People have different customs. I travel because I want to experience something different. I want to know what excites people,” Marklin said.

Marklin is a St. Louis native and attended STLCC-Florissant Valley and STLCC-Meramec. He considered his photography professor at Florissant Valley his mentor, he said. St. Louis is his home base and where the majority of his clients are.

“Keep pressing on, get a different angle and keep practicing your skill,” Marklin said when asked what advice he would have given to himself while attending STLCC.
