National Black Female Photographers Day is an opportunity for our sisters in photography to reach out to their communities and with them, explore the beauty of their cities through photo tours and to share their love of photography with others. Afterwards there will be a casual **lunch to network, share images and learn more about one another. Last year’s event helped cultivate valuable contacts and lasting bonds BEYOND photography, and we are sure this year’s event will be no less impactful.
Registration is at the end of this announcement.
