United Photo Industries is a Brooklyn-born, art-presenting cooperative dedicated to identifying, harnessing, and occasionally conjuring unexpected exhibition opportunities. All in the name of fostering conversation, championing new directions in photography, and cultivating ties within an ever-expanding, globe-trotting community of photographers.

Presentation is vital to a photographer, which includes editing, sequencing,
writing a personal reflection, design layout and final presentation. These are essentials to the success of your project—whether it is an essay, book, multimedia or portfolio book. Summer at the Visura Lodge is a unique opportunity to focus on
the photo editing and post-production of a project.

Creative director at leading design firms such as Arnell Group, Smart Design and Frog, Danish designer Rie Nørregaard has created design solutions for Internationally known consumer brands. In 2010, Rie founded OMHU, a new brand and product development company. Nørregaard designed an edgy multi-color cane with Allen Zadeh for a senior citizen, which is unique in its design as well as efficient. I became compelled to converse with Rie about the mission of her company, her modern view on our perception of aging, as well as, her approach to designing canes.
