Photo Shows and Expos

October 4, 2018 by Marie Joabar

We'll find 2 of the most popular photo shows and exhibits this fall and we want to share that information in the hope you’ll make it to one of them and find inspiration or learn new techniques to take your photography to the next level.

Our favorite show is NATURE VISIONS PHOTO EXPO on November 3-5.

Held each year in at the Hylton Center in Manassas this 3 day show has it all;

  • Photography greats giving lectures, presentations and hands-on sessions
  • Camera manufacturer reps giving demonstrations on the latest photography equipment and supplies.
  • Local camera stores offering savings on a variety of products.
  • One of the best nature photo exhibits in the Mid-Atlantic!

Don’t miss this chance to take advantage of the opportunities for learning.

On Friday, enjoy the full day seminar with Thomas Heaton Why Landscape Photography? which examines the draw of nature and the appeal of the great outdoors. On Saturday and Sunday, you’ll find the event packed full of excitement with more than 50 presentations from such names as Julieanne Kost, Cole Thompson, Steve Gettle and more. View the full SCHEDULE here.

Our own Marie Joabar will once again be presenting, this year she'll give 3 talks, Getting Off Auto, Understanding Camera Basics and Getting Started In Lightroom.

You’ll also find several exciting talks from Tim Cooper. Tim used to teach for Capital Photography Center before he moved back to Montana, he’s a brilliant instructor and photographer so look for his presentations.
