Flagpole members once again enjoyed the New England Camera Club Council’s annual conference at the University of Massachusetts Amherst July 15-17. In addition to attending 3 days of classes taught by some of the best photographers in the country, many hands-on photo opportunities were also available. In addition to models and photo setups, conference attendees were also treated to a performance by Wheels-N-Motion who put on a BMX Bicycle Stunt Show.
