Professional landscape and nature photographers take you on full-day workshops at eight state parks in 2013.
There is still time to catch Tamron USA’s in-the-field photographic workshop series in 2013. The series takes you from the scenic mountains of northern Georgia to California’s awe-inspiring redwood forests. America’s greatest environmental gems will serve as the backdrop for workshop leaders Ed Heaton and David Akoubian, who will lend their nature and landscape photography expertise to help attendees enhance their own photography skills.
Who can resist the photographic allure of the country’s state parks. According to the National Association of State Park Directors, more than 725 million people visit them annually, and with more than 6,600 state parks at our cameras’ disposal, there are endless imaging opportunities nestled into every hiking trail, mountain range, and lakeside sunset.
When you participate in Tamron’s state park photography workshops, you will have the opportunity to borrow Tamron lenses to take out in the field. Workshop leaders will conduct instructional seminars during the included lunch, and optional sunset sessions may be available at some locations.
State parks you can still catch a workshop at include:
Eldorado Canyon State Park (Golden, CO): October 12 with David Akoubian
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park (Borrego Springs, CA): November 9 with David Akoubian
Spring Mountain Ranch State Park (Blue Diamond, NV): November 16* David Akoubian
