Steven Perimutter and Bob Lussier – Preserving History through Photography

4 04 2020

The concept of “preserving history through photography” is the driving force behind Historic Mills Photography Workshops. The desire to capture the storied history of the old mills of Lawrence, and the city itself, is what brought photographers Steven Perlmutter and Robert Lussier together to create this unique photography workshop program. For over a decade, Bob and Steven have been exploring the classic 19th and early-20th century architecture of the mills in order to document the remnants of a bygone era of manufacturing and opportunity with their cameras. Their fascination with Lawrence’s historically important past, and a desire to preserve it, has inspired them to share their passion for photography and the mills with other like-minded individuals since their workshops started in 2013. Steven and Bob’s photographic style is documentary with a fine-art approach. They strive to not only capture and document these impressive buildings, but to also translate what some may consider old and run-down into something that others would consider art. And anytime they’re exploring the mills, they will always keep one important goal in mind: tread lightly, and always leave any space in a mill exactly as they found it. Partnering with current mill owners, as well as the Lawrence History Center, Steven and Bob have a created a unique opportunity for photographers of all skill levels and interests to explore, photograph, and preserve a piece of Lawrence’s history, while also learning new photography skills. Their hope is that participants will come away with memorable images, and also an appreciation for the impact that the city and it’s mills have had on the region.

Christopher Ciccone – Tanzania Wildlife

4 04 2020

Christopher Ciccone has enjoyed a lifelong interest in all aspects of photography. His working career has primarily been on the printing and production side of the industry, and has had the pleasure of printing for and working with some excellent professional photographers over the years. With his growing interest in the natural world (especially birds), it was inevitable that he would combine these two passions, and in the last several years, he has concentrated his efforts in being behind the camera again. Christophers goal is to share portraits, interesting behaviors, and moments often too fleeting for the casual observer to catch, so that more people become interested in, and care about preserving, the wildlife of our planet. In this presentation from Tanzania Christopher will share some images and stories from that trip. Please join us for Christophers Presentation on Tanzania Wildlife.





Ellen Kawadler – Painting With Photoshop

4 04 2020

Ellen Kawadler loves photographing and capturing a moment in time, an expression, a long forgotten historical piece, wildlife, flowers, and landscapes. Her completed images frequently are far from her originally envisioned creation. She enjoys taking the artistry beyond the initial capture by using her imagination and challenging herself to craft an appealing piece which, when finished, gives her a feeling of accomplishment and hopefully takes the viewer to another place and time. Ellen is an award winning photographer, lives in Massachusetts, just south of Boston where she is actively involved with the Stony Brook Camera Club, the Blackstone Heritage Corridor Photography Ambassadors, and the Greater Boston Night Photography Meetup group. Ellens proficiency in post-processing in both Lightroom and Photoshop has allowed her to share her skills through presentations and workshops to various camera clubs as well as offering individual tutoring. Ellens most recent endeavor is taking her images to another level by painting them with Photoshop. Ellen has developed a simple process to give a real painterly look to the images that she is now teaching in workshops. Please join us for Ellens presentation on Painting with Photoshop.

Debra Boucher Bugs, Birds and Bouquets

4 04 2020

Did you know there’s a whole different kind of world out there? Well, there is, right in you own backyard. If you have ever seen Debra Boucher photographs you know exactly what I mean. Debra enjoys photographing that small world of insects and bug. If you were to crawl around in your yard you’ll be very surprised what you may find. Close up photography and discovering insects and how colorful they are and how they move or pose for the camera is fascinating. The majority of her insect images you see have been taken handheld. Can you believe that? Here’s another secret. Do not just look down as you crawl around but look up into the sky, trees and bushes. Where birds fly and nest. There is always something to photograph. And when you just can not find any wildlife to photograph Debra enjoys flowers. Look into the wetlands near your home or just about anywhere. Be creative and capture what interests you. Debra also loves sitting at the computer for hours, creating fine art with her images seeing where the art takes her. It’s all about the journey and the end resulting image may supersize you. Debra has worked as a photojournalist for a local newspaper and is a volunteer photographer for the an other agency, photographing the historical places located in the corridor. Join us for Debra’s presentation on Bugs, Birds and Bouquets, Backyard Photography!
