Peters Valley Photography Retreat

The Delaware Water Gap Recreation Area is criss-crossed with many small streams and waterfalls.

Last weekend I had a great opportunity to attend a photography retreat at the Peters Valley Craft Center in Layton, New Jersey. The Center is located in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and is surrounded by a wonderful natural environment.

The retreat was organized by photographer Tillman Crane and hosted by Andy Schmitt, the Head of Photography for the Center. It was a weekend of great conversation, photo opportunities in a beautiful (in spite of the weather) environment, and the sharing of some amazing photographic work.

On Saturday afternoon about 20 photographers showed work at a photo sharing session that included platinum and silver prints, Polaroid image transfers, books, and a range of digital prints. I showed a number of prints from my trips North Dakota last year and a draft of the book I am putting together abut the trip.

For me, it was also a kind of reunion as three of the other photographers from last year’s North Dakota workshop were there and I had the opportunity to see some of their work as well as being able to share some of my images from North Dakota with them.
