Welcome to the Northern Virginia Photographic Society

Promoting the enjoyment and mastery of photography at all skill levels.

UPDATED – A Letter from the President of NVPS:

Dear NVPS Members:

Consistent with current State and Local COVID-19 policies, the NVPS is canceling all of the remaining 2019-2020 club meetings at the fire station, the End of Year Banquet, and field trips. We are, however, implementing a plan to hold VIRTUAL CLUB MEETINGS every Tuesday night over the next two months using the Zoom video conferencing software. We hope to provide all of the planned meetings and meeting content through these virtual meetings. This includes our monthly speakers, competitions, education and training, members’ forum and members’ gallery.

Our first virtual meeting on March 31st will be the second initial review of portfolio projects.

Monthly competitions for April and May as well as the End of Year competitions will be held, albeit as in modified format. To prevent the spread of the virus, we will not be holding any print competitions in April and May. The Co-VPs of competition and the Board is developing guidance on the implementation of the digital competitions for the remainder of the year and the End of Year competition. In the meantime, members should be preparing digital images for the next two month’s competitions. More information on the competitions will be sent out shortly.

As always we will be using email blasts, the NVPS website (NVPS.org) and our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/NVPSPhoto/) to deliver club information and announcements. If you are not on the Facebook page you can request to join.

If you have questions or comments, please contact editor-2019@nvps.org, competitions-2019@nvps.org, president-2019@nvps.org.

Kevin Egan
NVPS President
