The is the 6th year the Coastal Camera Club is hosting this exciting event. As in past years, the highlight will be presentations by four nationally-known photographers:
JOE BRADY: a photographer, educator, author and workshop leader speaking about an approach to creating images that make you smile. Joe is our keynote speaker,
RAD DREW: a well-known expert in the growing field of Smartphone Photography, talking about how to use your smartphone to create images with impact,
CHASE FAHSBENDER: a specialist in street photography from NYC, sharing his story on how street photography invigorated his passion for his art, and
JAY FLEMING: a local photographer who has achieved national recognition through his passion for the Chesapeake Bay and photographing people who make their living on and around the Bay. He’ll share that with us.
The event will be held again at the Atlantic Sands Hotel, right on the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach. The doors will open at 8:00am when you’ll be able to have a beverage while you visit our Photo Flea Market and stop by and chat with any of our exhibitors. So far B&H, Fujifilm, Parcel Plus, Cameras,etc., and Tamron will be on hand with more to come. You can also peruse a selection of winning images from CCC members in the Gallery on the 4th Floor.
I am happy to announce that the host hotel for the Photo Beach Bash, the Atlantic Sands, has reduced their block room rate from $130 to $105/night and moved the deadline out to February 28th. This is a great deal for those of you coming to the Bash from a little bit farther away, or for anyone just wanting to take advantage of the boardwalk location to, e.g., be around for some sunrise shots over the Atlantic Ocean. So if you are interested in taking advantage of this great offer, call the Sands at 1-800-422-0600 and ask for the room rate for the Photo Beach Bash.
The program starts at 9am and will conclude with a drawing for a wonderful selection of door prizes around 6:30. We’ll take a 2-hr. lunch break at 12, and this year we’re happy to say that in addition to nearby eateries, the hotel’s restaurant will be open. You’ll have plenty of time to revisit the exhibitors, and, if you’d like, get one or two of your images that you brought along critiqued by our presenters in the 4th Floor Gallery.
Tickets are now on sale, same prices as the last time; $25 ‘til then end of February, $30 after that including at the door (but cash only).
