The last two years have proven very productive for the New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists. Under the leadership of Gary Samson along with a hardworking board of directors, and an active membership, we wrapped up the two and a half year long NH Now project. In addition to publishing the book, thousands of images will be archived at the New Hampshire Historical Society, and made available for future generations to view.
Another accomplishment was our collaboration with the Kimball Jenkins School Of Art in Concord, where NHSPA is now based. Members can make use of a studio space, a large format printing station, and a darkroom. Kimball Jenkins offers a centralized location for meetings, exhibitions, presentations, workshops, and other events such as our recent Portrait Shootout, where members created portraits of one another against the backdrop of this beautiful historic mansion.
Our goal for the upcoming year is to keep this momentum going, and keep our membership actively participating in the many programs NHSPA will be offering. Here are some previews of what’s to come:
I am excited about what lies ahead for us in the upcoming year, and hope I can count on all of you to help make it happen. The only way this organization works is through active input and participation from all its members. I welcome any ideas that will help make NHSPA even better. Let’s make this a fantastic year!
Our new Studio and large format printing facility is now online for premium members at the Kimball Jenkins School of Art in Concord. It includes a 24" and 17" Epson printers and full studio lighting. In addition the beautiful Kimball Jenkins mansion is available as a background, as are the grounds. A fully equipped darkroom is in the works, as are courses for both members and non-members taught by some of the most talented photographers in NH. Email us at NHSPA@NHSPA.ORG
