Description

Attention Nikon Enthusiasts!

Pro Photo Supply is excited to announce that we are are hittin' the road and exploring beautiful Astoria, Oregon with Nikon. We have a full weekend planned with a variety of photo opportunities for the Nikon enthusiast, up to the advanced level photographer. We’ll have Nikon cameras and lenses available to attendees to check out throughout the weekend for FREE! Our ticket fee covers the group activities, class instruction and Nikon gear usage for the weekend!

We will be walking around the city of Astoria to shoot some street and landscape photography during the day and at night capturing the beautiful Milky Way in the night sky at Fort Stevens on the beach side. We will help you capture photos like the really cool night sky images you see and envy.

Nikon's National Training Specialist Paul Van Allen will lead our group on the exploration of Astoria and the night sky. The weekend starts in a group meet-up at our hotel, where Paul will go over the photography activities for the weekend, talk about camera settings and techniques and prepare everyone so you are ready to capture some amazing photos of Astoria. This is a weekend workshop you must not miss!
