Your Guide:Sydney Kahl, SLA Intern
I am a rising sophomore at St. Lawrence University in upstate New York, but am from Plymouth, New Hampshire where my love for the outdoors was fostered by the surrounding White Mountains, and Squam Lake. At St. Lawrence I am the co-founder and president of the photography club, which has given me the opportunity to share my love for photography with others through various workshops the club runs.
