Shannon Palmer is a local photographer who is contributing photos to the @SeeShreveportBossier Instagram account for the month of February 2019.

If you’d like, you can also follow the @SeeShreveportBossier Instagram account, which is administered by the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau (publishers of this blog). In an ongoing effort to seek out and celebrate different perspectives on life in Shreveport-Bossier, the @SeeShreveportBossier account will feature the work of a different local photographer for each month in 2019. February 2019 featured photographer Shannon Palmer has kicked off the year in style, sharing images (so far) of Barksdale Air Force BaseChimp Haven, the Red River District and more – with the promise of lots of Mardi Gras images to come.

Running the @SeeShreveportBossier Instagram account for a month is a paying opportunity for photographers residing in Caddo and Bossier Parishes. To learn more, e-mail me, Chris Jay, at cjay@sbctb.org with the subject line “Instagram program.”
