Alright, Baltimore/DMV: We follow some pretty great photographers, but we want to know your favorites
And, we want to tell the Baltimore (and beyond) #photography community about them. Over on our blog, The Darkroom, we want to feature area photographers who are doing something special, original or just phenomenal, but we know there are some great photographers out there that we don’t know about.
Who are your favorites? Let us know.

More than 100 former Playboy Bunnies will be converging on Baltimore this weekend for a semi-annual reunion. The women worked as waitresses and hostesses in the old Playboy clubs, which were once a fixture in most large cities.
The women worked in low-cut satin leotards, bunny ears and fuzzy tails, which were handed out by a “Bunny Mother.”
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the opening of Baltimore’s Playboy club, which closed in 1977.
