The Highlands Arts Alliance (HAA) Photographers’ Salon offers monthly gatherings to connect fellow photographers of all backgrounds and experience to share and critique work, learn new photographic styles/types and techniques.  

 

To enhance the creative process and provide learning opportunities, additional programs are offered:
