November’s Speaker Night will feature Marie Joabar. Marie Joabar founded Capital Photography Center in January 2012. Marie finds just the right way to take complicated concepts and technology and break the information down into easy-to-understand nuggets to share with others. Whether teaching photography basics or helping one better understand their camera, she works to take away one’s intimidation or sense of overwhelming that often accompanies learning new things so they can begin enjoying the craft and develop their skills. Her work can be seen on her website at www.mariejoabar.com.
Our Speaker Series is ready to begin!
