April 12-14, Photographer’s Retreat at Peters Valley with Tillman Crane

March 4, 2013

We just ran an article in the current issue about the last Al Weber Rendezvous. You might not know about a similar event that takes place every April at Peter’s Valley. Writer, teacher and photographer Tillman Crane leads this one with Photo Department Head Andy Schmitt at Beautiful Peter’s Valley Craft Center in Layton New Jersey, and all photographers are welcome. It’s a great way to meet fellow photographers and get to talk about and make new photographs. Attendees will receive a copy of photo technique too!

I’m hopefully going to stop by for a day- I can’t wait to get out of the office!


Here are the details:

Fourth Annual Photographers’ Retreat

April 12 (Friday) – 14 (Sunday), 2013 Peters Valley Craft Center, Layton, New Jersey All Photographers Welcome! Cost: Room including Continental breakfast (Friday & Saturday night) $150.00

What is a Photographers’ Retreat? This one is an opportunity for photographers to meet together over an unstructured weekend to talk, share work, see what others are doing, make new photographs, and in general, “hang out” with people who speak the same language as you. How does it differ from a workshop or conference? There is no agenda, lectures or classroom teachers. At this retreat we all get to be students and we can all be teachers. This is an informal gathering and you may attend all or part of the weekend. There is no registration charge.
