Nature Visions Photo Expo 2015 takes place Friday-Saturday-Sunday November 13-15 at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas, Virginia with over two dozen instructional sessions, great local and national vendors, and two stupendous juried exhibits of YOUR work. Registration and sales for paid classes begin on August 1st at NatureVisions.org. Online registration is required for admission.
Members of sponsoring clubs, of which the NIH Camera Club is one, will be able to submit images to the juried exhibits. Online submissions of digital entries for the Nature Visions Photo Expo “Nature” and “Photo Art” photography exhibits will begin in late August. Club members will be limited to a total of six Nature entries; nature images can be submitted in various categories (macro, water, landscapes, birds, wildlife, flora). Club members may also submit up to two entries for the Photo Art (formally Fine Art) exhibit, for a total of 8 entries in all. Submission of images is at no cost. Note that the maximum number of nature entries has been reduced to 6 from 10 last year in order to include more photographers in the nature exhibit.
This year’s All-day Friday Seminar Speaker is the noted landscape photographer Marc Muench. Marc’s images have appeared on covers and inside National Geographic, Sierra and Arizona Highways; Marc is the photo editor of the National Parks guides and a fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers. Marc’s father is David Muench, the legendary landscape master.
The Saturday Keynote address will be given by a genius of imagery and lighting, Joe McNally, author of The Hot Shoe Diaries: Big Light from Small Flashes and other outstanding books of photography and instruction. Joe has been a contract photographer for Sports Illustrated, a staff photographer at LIFE, and currently, an ongoing 23 year contributor to National Geographic, shooting numerous cover stories. American Photo magazine has called him “perhaps the most versatile photojournalist working today.”
The Sunday FREE Featured Speaker is Tim Grey, the digital photography educator and co-author with Art Wolfe of The New Art of Photographing Nature. Tim will give two educational presentations on Lightroom and his work on Sunday morning and afternoon. Tim is well-known for his FREE daily e-mail digest on digital photography and post-processing, Ask Tim Grey. Sign up for it now at http://asktimgrey.com/enewsletter/
Discount classes for beginning photographers will be offered again this year for only $2 per session. And there will be additional seats for two popular hands-on workshops that sold out in 2014: Bird Photography and Curious Critters. Join the rest of the club at Nature Visions Photo Expo 2015!
