    Default Hello, looking for DC beekeepers to photograph

    Hi,

    I'm a photographer in the Washington DC area and I'm working on a portrait series on beekeepers in the city. I took a beekeeping course in college and I loved it. I would love to hear from anyone who is interested in being part of the project. Thanks!

    Welcome, you should ask the President's beekeeper. I would love to see if that hive is still alive. I heard the vegetable garden died.

    What a cool project!

    Here's a good article that the Post ran last summer about urban beekeepers in the District: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...060203385.html

    And here's a short item that mentions the White House beekeeper's name:

    You may have seen those already, but I thought I'd point you to them just in case.

    I can't imagine that the White House vegetable garden is kaput. It was a big success last year, and we've had a really nice amount of rain in the D.C. region this year. And besides, the White House has a staff of professionals watching over its gardens. I sure hope it's doing well, anyway.

    Good luck! When you're done with D.C., come to Virginia!
