layne kennedy photo tours

Hello New England Camera Club Council,

It was brought to our attention from some friends in Portsmouth, N.H. to drop you a note. I recently taught a class there for the Worldwide Mentor Series Photo Treks.

I do a number of workshops and photo tours. Many are right here in the Midwest, but I also do workshops for the Mentor Series (http://www.popphoto.com/mentorseries)
and the famed North House Folk School where I both tach teach and serve on its Board (http://www.northhouse.org/).

I also run several of my own as well. We just finished our second of three tours in Cuba and also will be running my 24th Annual Dogsledding PhotoWorkshop at Wintergreen Dogsled Lodge
again this year. http://www.dogsledding.com/photo-workshop

Buckets of fun on each and every one. Here's the latest promo for the next tour.

Here's a few other articles written up:  http://www.fusevisual.org/interviews/2014/7/13/layne-kennedy,  http://121clicks.com/interviews/interview-with-layne-kennedy-editorial-and-fine-art-photographer

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

cheers,
layne

America the Beautiful Photo Contest

America the Beautiful Photo Contest
If anyone has any questions they can contact Putinas via e-mail.Thanks in advance for your entry.  Pam & Bruce Putinas pamela.putinas@att.net

My husband is a member of the East Windsor Veterans Commission.  They have a Facebook page if you want to look up the group.   Anyway the EWVC is holding a photo contest entitled "America the Beautiful" to raise money to erect monuments to honor veterans.  The forwarded email from Capt. Richard Hartman explains what is going on.   I've included two attachments that hold the photo contest entry form and the contest Rules.   These are also available on the Facebook page for the East Windsor Veterans Commission.   We are hoping that you can help us get the word out about the contest.  East Windsor is a small town and is getting no assistance from the town to fund the monuments.  The group is holding various fundraisers to get to their goal of $60,000.    We'd love to have some pictures that show what America the Beautiful means to people from all walks of life.  Also, by entering, some talented amateur photographers will win either $500, $250 or $100.  
Bruce Putinas (a member of the USS FULTON (AS-11) Association) is also a member of the
East Windsor Veterans Commission. The EWVC is planning on erecting monuments in the town green to honor veterans who served in the American Revolution through the current conflict.  They have raised $10,000 but have another $50,000 to go.

Putinas came up with the idea of holding a photo contest themed "America the Beautiful”.  
The photo contest prizes are $500, $250 and $100.  Folks wishing to enter may submit their favorite photo for $10 along with an entry form that is available on the East Windsor Veterans Commission Facebook page. Official rules are also available on the EWVC Facebook page

There is no limit to the number of entries that a person may submit. $10 and an entry
form for each photo.  The winners will also be recognized in a commemorative book
and the winning photos will be framed and hung in either the Veterans meeting room or the local American Legion.

The rules are pretty simple i.e. you must submit an original photo, you should be an amateur photographer and over the age of 21 and anything obscene will be disqualified. If you submit a picture of people and you win, we may ask the folks in the picture to sign a release as the photo will be displayed in town. "America the Beautiful" can be scenery, people, animals and nature.  It's pretty much anything you think makes America beautiful to you.

The deadline for entries is January 31, 2017 at 12:00PM. Simply print out the Photo Contest entry form, take, edit, and print your photos that capture the "America the Beautiful" theme, and send your original 3” X 5" or 4" X 6" prints to:East Windsor Veterans Commission P.O. Box 191 Broad Brook, CT  06016-0191"

If anyone has any questions they can contact Putinas via e-mail.Thanks in advance for your entry.  Pam & Bruce Putinas pamela.putinas@att.net
