The annual New England Council of Camera Clubs (NECCC) conference was held in Amherst, MA from July 15th to 17th. This gathering of photographers, vendors and nationally-known speakers draws over 1,000 participants each year. There’s a slew of talks on such diverse topics as photojournalism, portraiture and nature photography, with hands-on teaching programs and model shoots throughout the weekend. This year’s event was capped off by a chance to photograph a hot air balloon rise Saturday evening.
Mark Bowie represented API at our trade show booth. He has spoken at the conference several times and had the chance to re-visit friends and colleagues, and introduce new attendees to the Adirondacks and API’s workshop and tour offerings.
The conference is always a great weekend of photography, education, inspiration and camaraderie with fellow shooters. If you’re interested in attending next year’s conference, check out the NECCC’s website, www.neccc.org, for information. We’ll see you there!
