Event description

Description

National Park Trips Media is an authorized permitee of Yellowstone National Park

Overview

Imagine the Milky Way arching over basins full of geysers. This photo workshop will immerse you and a small group of participants into the art and science of night skies photography with an emphasis on capturing the Milky Way. As an added bonus, Tamron USA will have their full complement of lenses available to loan out to you for the entire program, including their award-winning 15-30 (FX and DX in Canon, Nikon, and Sony mounts).

The workshop begins the evening of Aug. 31st with a two-hour seminar at the Old Faithful Lodge and will cover techniques for capturing your best sunset and night skies images. We’ll also cover light painting and lens selection.

After the seminar, we’ll head into the park for the first shoot (sunset) followed by several different locations within the park for night skies photography. We’ll be in the field until approximately 1 a.m. The next morning, we’ll tackle post-processing.

Your Instructors:


Erica Robinson

Erica Robinson has always had a strong passion for both photography and travel, but once merging the two together is where she found her true calling. After studying photography in college, her first adventure was working as a photographer for a cruise line. Trying to pursue a different genre she then worked with talented Boston wedding photographers while learning the technical side working for a local camera store. Photography is an incredible tool that allows us to stop a moment and relive it every time we look at that image. She genuinely enjoys teaching others how to capture that moment in the way it makes them feel, to relive it over and over again.

Armando Flores, Tamron Photographer

Armando Flores

He has worked for Nikon, Sony and now Tamron where he has honed his photographic skills for more than 30 years.

He has photographed professional sports for more than 17 years and has worked for Reuters, Associated Press, AMPAS, HFPA and IGLA as a contributing photographer. His passion has always been to lend a hand to new aspiring photographers.
