Time to register– the NECCC Conference is only a few weeks away! Early Bird Registration by June 21.

We still have AC dorm accommodations available at this time. This three-day conference is a great weekend full of learning and fun and is filled with lots of hands-on opportunities for taking photos and then editing them to create your own works of art.

The keynote speaker for Saturday night is Kristi Odom who will present, “The Power and Passion of Photography.” Sponsored by Nikon, Kristi is a Nikon Ambassador and an internationally acclaimed photographer and sought-after motivational speaker. She travels the world shooting, teaching and sharing her insights so she can help make our planet a better place. Her compassion for her subjects shines through and is fundamental to her work. Kristi now makes her home in Washington DC, but from destination weddings in Thailand to conservation projects in the jungles of Borneo she is always on the move, and always ready to connect with others through her love for photography and Mother Earth. Her accolades include a Master’s accreditation from WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International), and she has won over 60 international photography awards including 2 Nature’s Best Photography awards and 26 Fearless awards. Her recent work has been exhibited twice at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.

The Photo Ops selections will continue to have innovative subject matter for your photographic endeavors with lots of extras including Macro Photographing of Insects – Kathy Macpherson Baca Sponsored by Sigma, Photographing Raptors – David Akoubian Sponsored by Tamron with Birds Sponsored by Wingmasters, Special Character Models – Marc Farb Sponsored by Sigma, Food & Still Life – Gerri Jones, Still Life – Mark Battista, Floral Portraits – Padma Inguva, and Photographing Flowers – Anne Belmont, Sponsored by Lensbaby. The Photo Ops room will also have many other Still Life setups with smoke and glass for additional opportunities. Female models will be available both inside and outdoors on Saturday and Sunday morning as well.
On Sunday morning, various speakers will be leading Photo Walks and many will be theme based. There is no charge when you sign-up in the registration system by June 21. Register early to get your favorite!

Hunt’s Photo and Video will open 2 hours early on Friday with great bargains and early bird specials! (Hunt’s Photo and Video will open Friday at 10:00 am, other vendor’s opening times may vary.) Come early to shop and see what they have to offer. Also, bring some of your old camera equipment to possibly trade in on something new!
