Shipmates, We are just a little over 100 days out from our “Cruisin’ with your Shipmates” 2024 Navy Photographer’s Reunion which is set to sail out of Port Canaveral, Florida on October 18th.  Up to this point we have 38 people booked for the cruise.  Many of our regulars are missing from our reunion list.

Story and Photos by Johnny Bivera Despite the many challenges of putting together a last minute training program post a pandemic, the DC video shoot off team made it happen. Following a successful still photography program last March, a determined and resolute group of volunteers and talented visual media professionals rallied and brought back to life, after a three year hiatus the DC Video Shoot Off Workshop in Arlington, Virginia.

Washington, DC Reunion Update

Shipmates, Many of you have not registered for the upcoming Navy Photographer’s Reunion in Washington, DC, 5-8 October.  We hope to see a large turnout for this great occasion.  With all the retired PH’s and MCs in the DC area plus all the active-duty MCs in the neighborhood we really thought there would be a great turnout.
