Gaithersburg Book Festival Speaker
Mark Thiessen has been a photographer with National Geographic since 1990 and on staff since 1997. He is widely published in all areas of the National Geographic Society, including National Geographic magazine, National Geographic Adventure magazine, and National Geographic Traveler magazine. National Geographic books that feature Thiessen’s work include “Return to Midway,” which documents the discovery of the U.S.S. Yorktown, and “Baseball as America,” a look at the Baseball Hall of Fame. In 1996, Mark began a personal photography project on wildland firefighters that took him to the front lines of wildfires every summer. To better understand the world of this little known subculture, he became a certified wildland firefighter. An award-winning online piece, “FireCall,” features Thiessen’s photographs and interviews with a veteran wildland firefighter. Mark was also profiled for an episode of the National Geographic Channel’s “Out There” series.

Hylton Center for the Performing Arts
George Mason University Manassas, VA
Attending Nature Visions will spark your interest in photography. All of the skilled photographers whose work is exhibited began as novices. The centerpieces of Nature Visions are two exhibits that showcase nature and photo art photography by members of the regional camera clubs that organize the event.
Nature Visions features two full days of lectures by noted photographers, preceded by a full-day seminar on Friday by an internationally known photographer and teacher. Our speakers are locally and nationally known photographers with expertise in a variety of fields. Our vendors sell and demonstrate the latest photography equipment, supplies and workshops.
Another popular activity is the opportunity to photograph hawks and owls. Thanks to the Raptor Conservancy of Virginia, photographers can focus their cameras on these magnificent, wild birds in a natural setting just outside the Hylton Center.
We'd like to invite you to join the Photoworks photography community in our next innovative project. We share your goal to develop and nurture the art of photography in the DC Metro area. To that end, we have gathered together a group of Master Photographers to meet on a monthly basis with fellow artists and photographers, and engage in a photo portfolio critique -- offering individualized insight into the art and craft and goals of photography. We are hoping you can join us.
WANT TO JOIN US? HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: The series of 6 monthly meet-ups runs from 6:30-8:30PM -- Sunday, September 17, 2017 through Sunday, February 18, 2018 -- and each session features a different Master Photographer from the Washington Metro Area. The first session (meeting this coming Sunday, 9/17 at 6:30PM) features Min Enghauser, an award-winning photographer based in Alexandria. Min has a piercing eye for color and detail, offering intimate and powerful portraits of both the natural and man-made. The fee for the entire series of 6 gatherings is $100, and includes a personal 25-30 minute portfolio review with the Master Photographer of your choice. In each of the monthly Sunday sessions, the 2-4 students that have signed up for a portfolio review will bring in their cohesive set of images (15-20 prints, darkroom or digital). Each student receives a public portfolio review with the Master Photographer, offering individual insight, guidance and conversation. We'll talk about what makes a good picture, and discuss the direction the student wants to explore. This should help students be better editors of their own images. Students who are not having their work critiqued that month are observers of the process; a uniquely valuable and informative experience. You can sign up for the workshop series, and choose the photographer you'd like to review your work at the following link on Glen Echo Park's website: http://www.ssreg.com/glenechopark/classes/classes.asp?courseid=35086&[catid=4403].
