very cool--yes, she should connect with the folks at http://www.bakeryphoto.com/ in Westbrook Maine. Classes, cool teachers, art shows....if nothing else, she could post a "mentor wanted" on their bulletin board. The other hot bed of photo here in Portland is of course the Salt Institute of Documentary studies http://www.salt.edu/ this is a school for folks a bit older than her but i am not sure if they might have some other programming, and they certainly DO have a gallery right in downtown portland with excellent shows. Additionally, Maine College of Art puts out their continuing studies catalog which usually includes "saturday school" for younger folks, and i would be surprised if there weren't photo classes. That said, i dont think there is a minimum age for their other classes (it just might be pricy for a 14 year old).

oh yes, lots going on here in Portland.
