This uniquely experiential event is 60th in a series of wonderful workshops.
Together we are growing a community of supportive and talented artists of all skill levels who connect through photography and a love of art.
Creating Your Vision photography workshops involves unique models interacting with the art of a unique space, often world-class art galleries.
For this July 12th event, we are thrilled to be in the fantastic space of The HeARTspot Art Center and Gallery in East Providence with professional ballet dancer Deanne Gerde from Newport’s Island Moving Company, modeling for this special event! Plus a special guest dancer from IMC soon to be announced!
We will work with seamless backdrops, lighting, a wonderful exhibition, all accompanied by a musical soundscape!
Deanna Gerde was born in Syracuse, New York, and received her early training as a dancer at Syracuse School of Ballet. She went on to train at the Joffrey Ballet School in Manhattan, New York, and then started her professional career as a freelance dance artist. Most recently, Deanna spent two years dancing with Ballet Arkansas under the direction of Michael Fothergill. She joined Island Moving Company under the direction of Miki Ohlsen in September of 2019 and is excited to be back on the east coast working and creating with some beautiful artists.

Although the Long Trail is known as Vermont’s “footpath in the wilderness,” its character may more accurately be described as backcountry. On its way to Canada, this “footpath in the wilderness” climbs rugged peaks and passes pristine ponds, alpine sedge, hardwood forests, and swift streams. It is steep in places, muddy in others, and rugged in most not unlike my life at the time I backpacked it with my buddy Jamie Smith. It was a trip of comradship, laughter, blood, sweat and tears. Jamie has since passed but the memories remain including this photograph "Lil Red Barn' taken along the way.
“Engulfed by fear and suspicion, mind agitated, eyes alarmed, we try desperately to invent ways out, plan how to avoid the obvious danger that threatens us so terribly.”
~–Yannis Tsarouchis reads Cavafy’s poem “Things Ended”
Small acts of kindness are sometimes overlooked. But, in truth, they change the world. Every single kind act has an effect - on the person whom it was performed, as well as on the person who performed it. Such was the case with this little girl who walked into our Newport set of Mermaids in total disbelief that she was actually in the presence of magical creatures. Nancy crowned her with her very own starfish and which produced one of the biggest smiles I’ve ever seen.
A reminder that there is good in the world worth sharing.
Gearing up for another day of shooting Nancy Rafi’s upcoming Mermaids and Mermen of Rhode Island 2021 Calendar, a worthwhile project to benefit Biomes Marine Biology Center.
