Augusta Bar Composite Photos Scheduled for Nov. 8-19

The Executive Committee of the Augusta Bar Association has approved a new composite photograph for the members of the Bar for 2021. As in 2015, the photographs will be taken by J.Russell Photography in the Lawyers’ Lounge at the Augusta Judicial Center during the weeks of November 8 and November 15 (Nov. 8-19). We hope all members will participate.

To schedule an appointment for your photograph, please call J.Russell at (512) 266-8921 or go to gojrussell.com (click on “Schedule Appointment” on the left side of the home page, then select “Guest Account” to access the calendar). If you do not call or go online to schedule an appointment, a representative from J.Russell will contact you to schedule an appointment. Please note that the Judicial Center will be closed on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

There is no cost to participate. After your photograph is taken, you will be able to view your proofs immediately and choose a photograph for the composite. Additional portraits will be made available for purchase. There is no obligation to purchase. Please wear professional attire for your photograph.

We ask all of our members to appreciate the importance of our periodic composite photographs and to cooperate with J.Russell to make this a successful project.

Thank you.
