Non-NHCC Photo Ops, Photo Events

The NHCC blog is used to send out official club business (only), but there are many other photo events in the area. One way to stay abreast of them is to subscribe to the NECCC blog NECCC is the New England Camera Club Council consisting of over 70 clubs in the New England Region.

NECCC is looking to post your photo event! We want to announce Photography photo ops,
programs, workshops, etc. from the New England Region on the NECCC blog There is soooo much
going on in the New England region and we want to share it! Seminars, workshops, camera club
programs, outside speakers, Canon Explorers of Light, photo ops, -- and first-hand information
providing updates on seasonal shooting (sunflowers, spring flowers, fall foliage). Let's SHARE!
In this day of social media "we" (photographers) should be sharing upcoming photography with
each other so everyone can know about them and choose to participate. The NECCC Blog and
Facebook site are wonderful places to share what is going on photographically in the New England
Region. Please have your club representative and/or publicity person contact me with information
about your club's events, programs, seminars, etc. that you are offering. If you have a first-hand
update on a seasonal event we would like that too (how are the Sunflowers at Buttonwood Farm,
are the daffodils peak, how is the fall foliage, etc.).

  • Plainville Hot Air Balloon Festival

This is a really exciting photo opportunity in August. It is the Plainville Hot Air Balloon Festival, a 3-day feast for the eyes for any photographer. It runs Friday, August 25 thru Sunday, August 27.

Last year, over 50,000 people attended the weekend event. There are hot air balloons taking off and landing, fireworks, antique car show, arts & crafts exhibits, food vendors, music and entertainment....just lots of opportunities for great people/crowd shots at this event.

Check out the List of Events and a story with photos from the Record-Journal.

Because this is a big event with different things happening each day, it may be difficult to shoot together. But if you let me know what/when you want to do, perhaps we can join up and maybe grab some good food, too.
