Event description
We delve into the summer monsoon storm patterns and climate change influences, then we'll learn to capture dramatic storms with our cameras

About this event

The hallmark of monsoon season is the dramatic thunderstorms that sail across the desert floors, bringing high wind, sheets of rain, and localized flooding. Storm photography is challenging and rewarding, and in this workshop Tucson photographer Tom Willett will teach tips and techniques for tracking storms and then creating the best exposures to capture the drama. We’ll also be joined by UA atmospheric scientist Dr. Christopher Castro who will share his latest research on how storms are becoming less frequent and much more intense across much of the Sonoran Desert—an outcome of climate change.

Field Trip > You can also sign up for an optional late afternoon / evening field trip on Sunday, July 18 with Tom Willett to find and photograph storms. We will start at Tumamoc, scope out nearby storms, and if needed, we will drive to other locations (self-drive, in convoy). $55 additional fee. You can add the field trip to your workshop ticket during checkout, or if you perfer to wait, you can also order a field trip ticket later, from the main Eventbrite page for Tumamoc.
