Upcoming events, calls for artists and general news

A New Affiliation

We are excited to announce a new affiliation with the PA Center for Photography, located in Doylestown, Pa. Together we will be offering teenage and adult workshops, create joined exhibits and opportunities unique to the art of photography.

In our first joint venture, Master Photographer Henry Rowan and myself will be offering the following “Advanced Photography Workshop for Teenagers”. Keeping in mind that photography has become part of our children’s everyday lives, they might not realize that everybody indeed is a photographer if the art of photography is studied correctly. This workshop will provide intermediate to advanced technical and creative information.

“One should study the science of photography if you want to be a scientist. If you want to be an artist with a camera, then learn what you need to know to create your vision and keep learning as that vision expands. At that point you are excited, interested, and driven to learn new techniques because they have meaning to you.” – Henry Rowan

This workshop is designed for teens in grades 9-12 or entering their freshman year of college.

“Composition is much more than where image elements are placed within the picture; good composition is a rational, cognitive process that requires the photographer to think rather than just click.” – Henry Rowan
