The North Bethesda Camera Club (NBCC) will host an all-day event in Gaithersburg on April 19, 2015. This program, called “Beyond the Lens: A Photographer’s Journey,” will feature Bruce Dale, an award-winning National Geographic Photographer, as the keynote speaker. We are looking forward to having him share his photographic experiences and his ideas about where photography is headed. The program will also include a panel discussion on challenges to photographic creativity, with input from not only Bruce but also Elizabeth Krist (chief photo editor at the National Geographic) and others. Major sponsors of the event at this point include Mac Business Systems, Nikon, Epson, Ace Photo, and Fuji.

Tickets for this special event are $35, and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Ticket price includes a seat for the presentations; food, access to the vendor hall, and a chance to win exciting door prizes from vendors such as Adobe and Think Tank.
