The trade organization, Black Female Photographers (BFP) is proud to announce their sponsorship of National Black Female Photographers Day (NBFPD).
NBFPD is a 15 city national movement to unite women photographers from all over the country. On Saturday, September 15, 2012, hundreds of people from all over the nation will gather on Photo Walks to celebrate the art of photography and to encourage Black women to seek careers in the male dominated photography industry.
“This is the follow up event (after the website launch) in our public campaign to increase the visibility of Black female photographers as a group and to establish our photographic leadership. It is a very simple premise with long lasting impact on everyone involved. It’s a chance for walk leaders and the general public to showcase the beauty of their cities through their passion of photography, and to engage the public in what we do as focused artists” explained Kym Scott, President and Founder of BFP.
A photo walk and luncheon will be held in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday September 15, 2012 at 10:30am at Mojo Lounge on North High Street at Poplar in the short north.
This is a national event that is open to everyone regardless of ethnicity or gender. All levels from beginners to professional photographers are welcomed.
