Flagpole Photographers Workshop Day

Visitors are welcome to register.


This hands-on workshop is a great way to boost your photography skills while capturing photos of historic Newtown and Sandy Hook. Work side-by-side with award-winning photographers for the entire session.

We will start with an outdoor session in Newtown, then move to an outdoor session in Sandy Hook. After lunch, we will focus on digital darkroom skills indoors, enhancing the morning’s photos for printing and social media. If the weather is bad, we begin indoors at the Senior Center.

Whether you’re a beginner or enthusiast, bring your camera or phone and join us for a day of creative exploration!
