Mentor Program

New to photography and need some one-on-one time to get comfortable with your gear? We have you covered! Our club is now offering a mentoring program where we will pair you up with a member with more experience to help you learn the ins and outs of your camera, software, printing and more. These one-on-one sessions can be scheduled at the convenience of the mentor and mentee, which will make it very convenient for learning. If you are interested in being paired with a mentor to push your photography to the next level, please email Cam Miller at Be sure to include your camera information, if there’s anything specific you are looking to learn and your contact information. We will pair you up with a mentor and the learning can begin!

Capital Photography Center


Begun as an initiative of the Cultural Arts Commission of Montgomery County, VisArts’ predecessor “Rockville Arts Place” incorporated in 1987 as an “artists only” organization, and three years later, moved to a space providing classrooms, galleries, and eight artist’s studios. Over the next nine years, the organization added 4,000 sq ft. offering fiber and ceramics studio, a darkroom, and four new artists’ studios. As we grew, so did our mission.
