Local Photographer to Discuss Reston’s Appeal, Photographic Muse

Local photographer Charlotte Geary will discuss why Reston is “uniquely captivating” at an event hosted by the Reston Historic Trust and Museum and Reston Community Center next week.

Geary, who moved to Reston nine years ago, will present a slideshow and discussion of Reston’s photographs on Wednesday, Feb. 12 at Reston Community Center Lake Anne (1609 Washington Plaza-N).

Here’s more about the event from the organizers:

Ever since moving to Reston nine years ago, Charlotte has felt impelled to photograph the lifestyle and scenery of this community. What makes Reston particularly appealing to a photographer? Charlotte will discuss the influence of Reston’s unique aesthetics, opportunities, and people.

In addition to her own contemporary images, Charlotte will present historic photos from the Reston Museum’s collection, to demonstrate consistent themes in photos of Reston over the years. She will also offer tips for taking great photos of places and people, with suggestions for photographers of any skill level.

Geary and her family live at Lake Anne Plaza. As a commercial photographer, she specializes in lifestyle marketing, portraits and events and often photographs events in Reston.

The event is free and open to all.
