8th Annual National Black Female Photographers Day—September 14, 2019
Welcome to another year of our National Black Female Photographers Day!
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 guided photo tours.
This is a great way to be introduced to the Black Female Photographers group and explore the art of photography with knowledgeable women. Afterwards there will be an opportunity for a casual lunch to network and learn more about the group and tour participants (all participants are responsible for paying for their own lunches).
This event is open to the public. Each tour will be led by a BFP group member in these participating cities (**This list is subject to change and more cities may be added, along with tour information):
