2nd Annual National Black Female Photographers Day
Saturday, September 14, 2013
National Black Female Photographers Day (NBFPD) is a 12 city nationwide movement to unite Black women photographers from all over the country. On Saturday, September 14, 2013, hundreds of people from all over the nation gathered to celebrate the art of photography and to encourage Black women to consider careers in the male dominated photography industry.
The DC area walk took place at the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Park (often referred to as the "Maryland side of Great Falls Park") in Potomac, MD and was a rousing success!
The photographers walked, talked and photographed. New relationships were started and new bonds were formed. The walkers who participated in the DMV walk were even surprised when BFP founder Kym Scott, of Kym Scott Photography, took an 8 hour car trip to join our walk and meet us in person for the very first time!
After the walk we all gathered for lunch to rest our bodies and exercise our minds. Many great ideas were put on the table and we're all truly looking forward to bigger and better things to come from Black Female Photographers!
