For the morning session, this year's speaker will be Nikhil Bahl, a full time professional photographer, author, educator, workshop instructor and environmentalist residing in the Washington DC area. Drawing inspiration from nature, Nikhil adopts novel approaches and seeks meaningful interpretations to create photographs that transcend the commonplace, reflect deeper insights, and convey an enchantment of the subject's beauty. His three hour presentation during the morning's session is certain to inspire everyone.
