Our current Featured Artist is photographer Debbie Guiel.
September 17 - October 31
Photography has been one of Debbie's hobbies for about 10 years. She bought her first digital camera in 2008. Since then, her interest in photography has grown, and it is a hobby she spends much of her free time doing.
Debbie has taken various photography classes, including equine and nature photography, and has participated in photography workshops. Notable local photographers she has taken classes with are John Green of Belchertown, and Robert Floyd of Southampton. She is also a member of the Quabbin Photo Group.
More recently, Debbie has focused primarily on nature photography, and enjoys spending time wandering wooded trails to find subjects. She enjoys photographing water, whether it be in a waterfall or brook, or as snow and ice. Some favorite places she visits are Quabbin Reservoir and the Fort River Trail (Hadley), as well as the many waterfalls in Western Massachusetts.
