    NHSPA’s 7th Annual Crawford Notch Retreat At The Highlands Center


    The Highland Center will be communicating with

    those who reserved a room and will provide full refunds to all who paid. Replacement event TBD

    The coronavirus has changed all our lives, as citizens, as individuals and families, and as photographers. As an organization, NHSPA is concerned with the health and safety of our members, of the general public, and of the places where we live and work.

    Out of that concern the board of NHSPA has agreed by electronic communication to postpone or modify several upcoming events.

    April 24 – 26, 2020

    Another year has flown by and our annual photo retreat at the Highlands Center in Crawford Notch is right around the corner!

    Don’t miss this chance to hang out with your fellow NHSPA members exchanging ideas, talking shop, wandering the trails with your camera, sharing your work, getting feedback, and making new friends at the evening’s social hour.

    This year we encourage you to take advantage of the beautiful trails and vistas of the White Mountains during the day Saturday. In the afternoon Gary Samson will do a presentation on adjusting raw files in Photoshop’s Lightroom to maximize your images and we will have the Epson R600 printer to generate prints so make sure to bring your digital files.

    To mix things up a bit we’ve added a Photo Slam following dinner on Saturday night. AND!!! a drawing for a $100 gift certificate to Hunts Photo in Manchester. See page two for the schedule of all the weekend activities.

    PLEASE REGISTER on the event page at our NHSPA website so we know you are joining us this year. We have eliminated the registration fee for this year’s retreat!
