NEWSLETTER May/June 2019
REMINDER: If you are planning to attend the retreat this year, please consider signing up soon. We need to hear from you so that we can plan our program.
If you have not attended previously, this is a great opportunity to experience Star Island and to share your photography with others. And consider bringing a friend or your spouse/significant other! Participants are asked to bring prints or digital images of their work. Since we will not have a guest photographer this year, we invite attendees to inspire and educate us about some aspect of their photography with short presentations. The possibilities are endless: travel photos; show and tell about a new camera or piece of equipment; explain a favorite aspect of Lightroom or other software you use. Tell us how you became interested in photography or discuss images that inspire you. We have a digital projector and screen. Board and room costs include all meals and the ferry from Portsmouth. We do have a nightly social hour and we provide munchies but you can bring some of your own and of course your own beverages. This year Star has given us space for 15-20 conferees and the more who attend, the better the retreat will be. We have had as many as 35! We urge you to register early with a deposit of $150. If you wait too long to register, you might find that there is no space available. Non-members are also welcome by joining NHSPA and paying $25 dues.

The New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists (NHSPA) is offering a photography retreat this summer on Star Island.
The retreat is an opportunity for dedicated photographers to meet and share their work. Several photographers will offer short programs highlighting a particular aspect of their work. Participants are asked to bring prints or digital files to share and discuss with the group. The program is for three days in mid-week, August 28-30, 2019.
For twenty years, NHSPA has hosted photography events on Star Island to give fine art photographers the opportunity to meet, share their work and exchange ideas about photography. The historic buildings and rocky shoreline of the island offer abundant photographic opportunities. The nineteenth century-style ambience is conducive to socializing and discussing elements of the photographic craft.
Formed in 1998, NHSPA supports the work of photographers as a means for creative expression and cultural insight. NHSPA members are dedicated to sharing photography with each other and the community through group exhibits and programs.
Since 1915, Star Island, located in the Isles of Shoals off the coast of New Hampshire, has been a center for education and group events. The island follows the principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ.
