It’s that time of year again, the annual Nature Visions Photo Expo is just around the corner on November 18 - 20, 2016. Held at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas, Nature Visions offers the best value in photography education and we’re happy to support it!
It features two full days of lectures by noted photographers, preceded by a full-day seminar on Friday by an internationally known photographer. This year the noted photographer is the award winning travel photographer, Bob Krist, and we believe there are still a few seats still available. Other notables are Julieanne Kost, Tom Till and John Barclay. Novice and advanced photographers alike have the opportunity to learn from these experts.
Talk with vendors and reps from leading manufacturers who will be available to help with technical questions and showcase (and sell) the latest in photographic equipment and supplies.
Another popular activity offered is the chance to photograph hawks and owls. Thanks to the Raptor Conservancy of Virginia, photographers can focus their cameras on these magnificent wild birds in a natural setting just outside the Hylton Center.
The centerpieces of Nature Visions are two exhibits that showcase nature and fine art photography by members of the seven camera clubs that organize the event. Many attendees are simply dazzled by the beauty of the photographs on display. Yet many of these photographers only picked up a camera for the first time a couple years ago, their growth was helped along by participation in their camera club.
It is the hope of the Expo that visitors are inspired by the creativity of the exhibiting photographers and are encouraged to improve their own skills as photographers.
Their mission statement is “To promote and advance the appreciation of photography in the Mid-Atlantic Region and elsewhere; to encourage the participation in photography by individuals with all levels of experience and all areas of photographic interest; and to increase the appreciation of photographic art within our community.”
Admission is free to the Nature and Fine Art Exhibits, vendors and vendor demonstrations but you must register online to attend. There are many presentations/lectures… some free and some for a fee.
We’re so excited about this event and hope you’ll visit us there.
