Houston Happenings: Nikon Ambassador Lecture Series, Splash Bash, Jurassic Quest

HOUSTON --- The weekend is almost upon us! That means it's time to check out Houston Happenings.

Nikon Ambassador Lecture Series

Houston Camera Exchange will host a Nikon Ambassador Lecture Series on August 8 and 9 in the Lois Chiles Studio Theater at Moody Center for the Arts at Rice University.

The series will feature Military Combat Photographer Stacy Pearsall, who draws upon the hardships she faced as a photographer and woman in combat. She has documented some of the most dangerous battles of our time and was injured in combat.

Pearsall’s story “Combat From Behind the Camera” will be shared at the event. You will have the chance to learn how her path to recovery paved the road to her new mission in life, the Veterans Portrait Project.
