Easter Message from the President

Shipmates, Members and Friends of Naval Photography, As we enter the Easter and Passover holidays, I would like to take time to wish everyone peace during this very blessed Holy season. It looks like we are getting past this Covid nightmare. By the time the reunion rolls around I expect everyone should have had all of their shots and hopefully ready to travel. As everyone knows this is the 100th year of the Navy Photographer. Time to celebrate this notable milestone and our service to the US NAVY! 100 years of our work, some of which I imagine will be on display. We are fortunate to have Jim Russell’s boots on the ground in Pensacola, he has outdone himself by scoring another […]

2020 Reunion Replaced With 2021 Reunion

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 debacle and the slow rollout of the vaccine, the NANP Board of Directors have voted to cancel the 2020 Navy Photographer’s Reunion, which had been postponed to April 2021. Going forward, we are planning a 2021 Navy Photographer’s Reunion, November 5th – 7th at the Holiday Inn Resort on Pensacola Beach, Florida. This is the same location and venue we had planned to use for the 2020 Reunion. And as previously planned, our reunion will coincide with the Blue Angels Homecoming. The Board of Directors felt this course of action would allow ample time for the majority of our community to receive their vaccines, thereby increasing reunion attendance. A new 2021 Reunion page will […]

A Holiday Message from our President

All, On behalf of Wes Gibson, myself and the Board of the National Association of Naval Photography we would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a Happy Kwanzaa.  2020 was a very hard year for a lot of us. Some of us have lost family members and friends to Covid, endured some personal and possibly some financial hardships but hopefully the New Year will bring some changes for the good.  No matter what your political persuasion is, now is the time to bring America back together again.  I would like to see us go back to being the country I was raised in.  At my age I have no idea how much longer I will be […]

Thanksgiving Message from our President

As Thanksgiving approaches, we still have Covid-19 ripping through the fabric of our society.  This means that many will be on house restriction for the holiday.  Most of us will not see family members in person because of fragile health or it would be a burden to social distant or some other reason that it will make it impossible to be with our loved ones. We can still communicate via Skype, Face time, Zoom or some other form of social media. We can still be thankful that we are well enough to enjoy Thanksgiving.  Many of us have spent various holidays away from our families on special days.  My first Thanksgiving abroad was aboard the USS FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT on […]

2020 Navy Photographer’s Reunion Postponed

Due to the current COVID-19 threat, the NANP Board of Directors has decided to postpone the 2020 Navy Photographer’s Reunion, previously scheduled for October 16 – 18, to the spring of 2021. The new dates for the Navy Photographer’s Reunion are April 23 – 25, 2021 and will be held in Pensacola, Florida as previously planned. The Board felt it prudent to make this move as the COVID-19 numbers are ever increasing and governments continue to restrict social gatherings. We are also very concerned about the health and well-being of our PH and MC community. Lastly, we received word that the Blue Angels have shut down their season for the year and the Homecoming Air Show is in question. We […]
