Explore Newburyport’s historic architecture from behind the camera in this combination walking tour and photography lesson led by Dan Fionte and Bob Watts, both local photographers and history buffs. The three-hour tour will meander down some of the most historic and picturesque streets in Newburyport, starting from the Museum of Old Newbury at 98 High Street.
Designed for beginning to intermediate level photographers, the class will teach architectural photography techniques and give attendees the chance to experiment with specialty equipment provided by the instructors. The group’s leaders will highlight several notable buildings on the two-mile walk through the heart of Newburyport’s historic district, including both homes and public buildings to offer a variety of architectural styles and subjects for creative photography.
