STILL TIME TO REGISTER FOR STAR ISLAND WORKSHOPS (barely)
NHSPA Photography Retreat
Date & Time: September 5th to September 8th, 2013
Location: Star Island, Rye, NH
If you are looking for a unique location to take some great photographs, engage with other photographers who share your passion and partake in a workshop lead by a special guest photographer, then consider attending the Annual NHSPA Star Island Photo Retreat.
This 4-day photographic retreat, now in its 16th year, provides a special opportunity to partake in a photographic forum which will feature a workshop designed by a special guest photographer who will also exhibit their own work. Along with the opportunity to take unique and beautiful photographs, you will be spending time with other film and digital photographers (all levels of experience are welcome) where you will benefit from the opportunity to share your photographs with others who share a passion for this art form.
Frank Armstong will be the guest photographer at this year's retreat. Armstrong has been teaching analog and digital photography at Clark University for 13 years. He is represented by the Panopticon Gallery in Boston and the Stephen L. Clark Gallery in Austin, Texas. Most of his work has centered on the southwestern part of US, and in and around the Worcester area. He has an extensive exhibition record, and is represented in a number of permanent collections both public and private. We're very pleased to have Frank join us this year. Further details on Frank's program will be announced shortly.
