The eleventh annual Nature Visions Photography Expo takes place Friday-Saturday-Sunday November 9, 10 & 11 at the Hylton Performing Arts Center, a sparkling facility on the Prince William Campus of George Mason University in Manassas. The Expo is organized by photography clubs in Loudoun, Manassas-Warrenton, McLean, Northern Virginia (which meets in Dunn Loring), Reston and Vienna.
Two photos by Dan Jenkins of the Manassas Warrenton Camera Club and one by Joyce Harmon won best in their respective categories and will compete to be selected for the “Best in Show” award, to be announced November 11 at the closing ceremony of the Expo.
“Otter Trouble”, by Joyce Harman, won Best Wildlife Photo in the judging held on Sunday October 21 for the Expo. Dan Jenkins’ “Lunch” won Best Bird Photo and his “Misty Sunrise” won Best Landscape.
Just over 750 images were entered from the six partnering Northern Virginia clubs, of which 273 were selected for the Expo's exhibit.
The Expo begins on Friday November 9, when Seth Resnick, named one of the decade's thirty most influential photographers by PDN magazine, will offer a full day workshop at the Hylton Center on "Seeing Color: Creating Dynamic Killer Images." On Saturday and Sunday November 10-11 Expo visitors can see the gallery of juried images and visit with over thirty local and national vendors of photography equipment, supplies, software, education and travel. Seven more photography lectures and ten workshops are available on those days at an additional cost.
