Don Rosenberger sold all his camera gear and walked away from photography. But that was back in 1983. He picked up a camera again in 2005 and has spent most of his weekends and vacation time trying to make up for those years he walked away.
In the years since 2005 he has worked with and been mentored by a great group of well known and some not so well known photographers. Today Don is still driven by the passion and urge to always create something better and constantly strive to take his work to the next level.
In addition to pursuing his personal work he is a partner in Road Runner Photography Tours and leads national and international photography tours.

We invite you to take part of this amazing opportunity in telling your story and helping to bring together the global photography community.

September 23, 2014 – Members Gallery: Prints from Joy Brathwaite and Digital Presentation from Kim Enevoldsen
Prints: Joy Brathwaite
Joy Brathwaite started photography in July 2013 with a Nikon D3000. Shortly after picking up the camera, she was invited to join the Northern Virginia Photographic Society by a work colleague. Through NVPS she has met great photographers and learned various photographic techniques, whom and which she credits with improving her photography significantly. The high points of her first year in photography included being juried into Nature Visions 2014, and winning the Peoples’ Choice Awards in the 4th Annual Joseph Miller Abstract Photography Exhibit.
Photography provides a relaxing artistic juxtaposition to her job as an aerospace engineer. Whether photographing abstracts or landscapes, Joy enjoys taking images with strong shapes and vibrant colors. These elements add lots of energy to the image making the shot dynamic. Currently, she is working on a series about bridges, and authoring a book for elementary students on the history of the various memorials on the National Mall.
Digital: Kim Enevoldsen
Kim Enevoldsen has been a member of NVPS since 2010. While working in Washington, DC on a temporary work assignment, she purchased a digital SLR and recognized she needed and wanted to get more involved in photography again. Although Kim spent some time shooting film in high school and early college, she concluded that finding a group, which could provide instruction, guidance, and fellowship with like-minded fanatics was paramount. Hence the Northern Virginia Photographic Society.
Kim is an amateur photographer who uses her day job to fund her hobby. She recently sold several photographs taken this summer. How awesome is it to have fun and get paid at the same time! Kim has no formal photography training but at times can be a seminar junkie. She enjoys shooting a variety of topics that coincidentally parallel activities her family is currently involved in such as ice hockey and horse shows. Kim uses Canon equipment but finds that most of her creative images come from her iPad, much to the chagrin of some of her fellow photographers.
Kim looks forward to many more years with NVPS. She plans to master the “video” DSLR concept, take more photography on-location workshops, and one day…many years from now, maybe, just maybe make enough to buy more photography equipment in pursuit of the perfect image.
