NEW ENGLAND CAMERA CLUB COUNCIL CONFERENCE
72nd CONFERENCE JULY 14, 15, 16, 2017
A WEEKEND FILLED WITH FUN, FRIENDSHIP AND LEARNING
Mark your calendars – the NECCC Conference is a few short months away! This three-day conference is a great weekend full of learning and fun. The main speaker for Saturday night is Bryan Petersen. Sponsored by Nikon, he is a world known creative and travel photographer, author and workshop leader who is known as the founder of the world’s number one on-line school: Bryan Petersen’s School of Photography.
The Photo-Ops room will continue to have innovative subject matter for your photographic endeavors with lots of extras including “Insects by Creepy Con”- Kathy Baca (NY)”, High Key Color Glassware – Mary Boucher (MA); and on Saturday speakers Charles Needle (CA) with Inspirational Floral Techniques, and Cheryl Belczak (NY) with Dark Field Glassware. Last year for our Sunday morning special photo event, we had bicycle BMX jumpers and this year we have revved up our engines and will have motorcycle jumpers from The Boston FMX Team doing stunt ramp jumping sponsored by Hunt’s. There will be lots of air stunts and more opportunities to photograph the riders with our NECCC models.
There will be models, vendors, and photo equipment to borrow from Canon, Fuji, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Sigma, Sony and Tamron. Our vending area will open two hours earlier on Friday July 14th at 10 am with Hunt’s Photo and Video open with great bargains and early bird specials. Other vendor’s opening times may vary. Come early to shop and see what they have to offer. For the third year Sigma will host a special digital competition (with Sigma lenses for top two prizes) which is in addition to conference competitions in digital images and prints.
There will be seven Friday am pre-conference workshops for your selection this year. Sign up early as many of the classes have limited seating. Classes will be offered in understanding color, social media, Iphone photography, Photoshop, hands-on workshops in printing and macro; and for beginners there is a hands-on digital boot camp-learning to use your camera.

Conference updates, the registration flyer, along with the online registration link will be on the NECCC website (www.neccc.org) by the middle of March; program descriptions and speaker information by the end of March and the tentative schedule by end of May.
