Good afternoon WHNPA members,
I wanted to let you know about the wonderful Q&A session that 2012 WHNPA ‘Eyes of History’ Photographer of the Year, Charles Dharapak had yesterday afternoon at The Newseum! So many people they ran out of seating. Your exhibit is amazing and runs thru March 2013. Special Thank you to Nikon for supporting this exhibit.
Over the summer months, your board has been planning for events and programming for our members.
*****You have this one last chance for special pricing for the NEW National ‘Eyes of History’ contest.
Details at: http://www.whnpa.org/nationaleyes/index.htm
Please be aware of the following events and dates and mark your calendars to attend.
On Tuesday, Oct: 2 from 630p to 8p - WHNPA members may be interested in attending a discussion on police, protests and press coverage where you will hear an expert panel discuss a hypothetical real-life scenario involving these issues:
* What are the limits of press coverage of a protest occurring on courthouse grounds? Or in the courthouse itself?
* Under what circumstances can a press photographer’s camera and/or memory card be confiscated by law enforcement?
* What are the limits of press coverage or photography when a police officer gives a legitimate order to move?
