First, I want to say how honored I am to serve as the new president of NHSPA and I am indebted to Michael Sterling, Dan Gingras and the rest of the board for their continuing selfless leadership. I look forward to working closely with Michael, Dan and our new vice president, Ian Raymond, as we move through the next phases of the New Hampshire 2020 project and introduce new programs for our membership.
Only through a large group effort could we undertake and execute a two-year photography project documenting life in New Hampshire resulting in a book and seven exhibits to be produced for the fall of 2021 in partnership with the New Hampshire Historical Society. I want to thank the membership for rising to the occasion to make this all possible. Between now and the end of September when photography is completed, we will be collecting the photo files through meetings, or by mail, if members want to send work on a USB drive. We would prefer raw files, but if you are providing tiff or PSD files please make sure they are 16-bit, full resolution files. Jpegs are not acceptable. Once we have all the files, we will start the selection of images for the book and seven exhibits. The book files will be processed to the reproduction specs of the publisher and files prepared for exhibit printing. This work will consume much of my time in the late fall of 2020 and winter months of 2021. It will, of course, be very important to have the documentation info readily available to write the captions for each photograph used in the project.
I am very excited to share new free programs exclusively for our membership this fall. Using Zoom, we will be offering presentations on street photography and Lightroom with guest experts. Both programs are designed to be interactive for participants and these two topics were of high interest as measured by our membership survey. We will post dates on this website and on the NHSPA Facebook page in the coming weeks.
I look forward to working with you all this fall and next year as we explore new photography projects and grow NHSPA to meet the needs of membership.
Work in Progress
The new NHSPA website is a work in progress, and we hope to make significant changes over the next few weeks. In addition, members will be able to manage their own profiles and information. We are working to add a new gallery with significantly improved features. Feel free to contact us with your suggestions. Email us at NHSOCIETYPHOTOGRAPHICARTISTS@GMAIL.COM
