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 exhibits of YOUR work. Registration and sales for paid classes begin on August 1 at NatureVisions.org. Online registration is required for admission.
Digital entries for the nature and photo art photography exhibits will be accepted beginning August 25, 2015 and end Sept. 23, 2015. Club members will be limited to a total of six (not ten) nature entries this year, in order to include more photographers in the exhibit. As before, club members may submit up to two entries for the fine art 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/
