Marie Joabar

Drawing on more than 13 years experience as the Corporate Trainer and Education Programs Manager for one of the Washington, DC area’s leading camera retailers, Marie founded Capital Photography Center in January 2012. As an instructor, Marie finds just the right way to take complicated concepts and technology, and break the information down into easy-to-understand nuggets to share with others. Whether teaching photography basics or helping people to better understand their camera, she works to take away your intimidation or sense of overwhelming that often accompanies learning new things so you can begin enjoying the craft and develop your skills.

Marie is also very active in the Shenandoah Valley where she teaches photography classes for Shenandoah County and writes the Shared Exposures photography column for “The Mountain Courier.” Her photos can be found in various print and online publications for the Shenandoah County Department of Tourism and have been published in various local magazines and newspapers.

She is a member of ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) and VECCA (Valley Educational Center for the Creative Arts).
