Photo Op in Overland Park

In terms of a concluding event, we couldn’t have chosen a better place than Overland Park, Kansas to hold our last Photo Weekend of the season. This weekend, April 28-29, will be the final stop of a 14-city tour that began in January. The largest suburb in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area, Overland Park has been rated by major national publications as one of the “Top 10 Places Live in the U.S.”  as well as one of the “Top 10 Places to Raise Your Kids.”  Home to a solid and diverse economy, strong public and private school system, ample park and recreation opportunities, abundant public art works, the Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead and Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park provides plenty of culture & activities for locals as well as a bit of a respite for the city-weary KC Metro residents & workers.

Kansas is chock-full of photographers who love to explore their world with a camera, and we’re excited to visit with some old friends and see new faces there. This go around, the tried-and-true team of instructors, Tim Cooper and Doug Johnson, will finish off the season with a flourish of inspiration and education. If you’ve had any have inkling to attend one of our Photo Weekends, whether you’re in the area or not, this will be your last chance to do so for quite some time. Maybe we’ll see you there???
