Weekend Photography Workshop at Pickett State Park
Pack your bags, grab your camera and join photographer David Duplessis of Tennessee Photographs for an amazing weekend full of outdoor photography in beautiful Pickett Civilian Conservation Corps Memorial State Park!
Plan on arriving Friday evening for a Night-Sky Photography Class in one of only a few NASA designated dark sky viewing areas!
Then, make sure your batteries are charged, because Saturday will be spent photographing the natural wonders found throughout the park. We’ll hike along the Hazard Cave, Natural Bridge, Lake & Island Trails, all the while accompanied by Rangers who know the park intimately and are also able to assist with your photography questions. We’ll end the day with a group BBQ, prepared lovingly and expertly by Park Manager Travis Stover.
Sunday is ala carte! The group will decide Saturday evening, between bites of BBQ, what we’d all like to do. Perhaps it’ll be a free-day where you explore on your own, or we’ll team up and tackle one of the trails we missed!
All levels of photographers are welcome! But there’s only room for 15, so make your reservations now!
