August 16-19 Coaching in Newport

Photowalk- Saturday at 9 am

This multi-day event takes place every three years and is an incredible opportunity to capture images of carriages, horses and people in and around the city.

Use this link to view the Coaching main page.

This link will take you to the route the carriages will follow each day.

A Photo Walk will take place at Chateau-sur-Mer, 9 am, Saturday morning before the public demonstration at the Elms. We'll meet in the parking lot at the mansion.

Limited access to the Breaker's stable is available to Photo Guild members Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Send Lew a message if you are interested.


Our plans for a Photowalk are to gather at Chateau-sur-Mer on Saturday at 9am and photograph in and around the stable area.  You are welcome to visit the stable area of the mansion on your own every morning during the event.  Parking is normally available at Chateau-sur-Mer but if the event closes that lot, parking can take place in the neighborhood.  You may wish to park at or closer to the Elms and walk to the Chateau if you plan on attending the exhibition at the Elms.


Newport has many events worthy of capturing. Check out what's going on here.


We welcome photographers with all levels of abilities! Join the Guild!

Here's how we've changed and remained the same!

Programs begin at 7 PM; doors open at 6:30 PM

September 12- Cindy Wilson presents Photographing in Cuba. She will be joined by many of the photographers who were on the workshop, including several Guild members.  They will participate in a Q&A about their experiences. This program, while focusing on Cuba, should be useful for anyone traveling with photography as a priority. Issues faced by photographers in unfamiliar surroundings are not always unique to that location. Cindy has experience leading groups in a variety of locations and is an educated and experienced guide and photographer. Here's a great opportunity to ask questions before you take the trip.


September 15th Photowalk (rain date Sunday 16th)- The gardens at the Elms are some of the most classic and attractive in the city. The mansion sits upon an emerald field that is anchored by colorful beds of annuals and accented with hard scape. Sculptures, fountains, stables and more provide rich material to capture. We will meet at 10 am in the rear of the parking area, talk about the site and it's many photographic elements and capture lush images.
