For beginning photographers, Warriors’ Path State Park is hosting an outdoor photography workshop later this month, taught by professional photographer David Duplessis of Tennessee Photographs.
“We’ve had nature photography workshops before, but they were much more limited – no individual attention, taught by just one Ranger, etc.,” said Park Ranger Marty Silver. “This is the first time we’ve had a professional photographer lead a class specifically for beginners.”
About the event
The workshop will be held Wednesday, May 30, from 7-10 a.m. at the park. Silver and Duplessis will lead participants on a morning walk along the trails, during which they will learn the basic principles and concepts of nature photography, while also enjoying the beauty of the park.
The class is specifically designed for beginning photographers, and participants should bring their DSLR camera, lenses and tripod if they have one.
Because the event will take place outdoors on the trails, participants should come dressed for the weather, wear good hiking boots and bring rain gear for themselves and their equipment if needed.
“This will be a unique opportunity to learn from one of our state’s best outdoor photographers,” Silver said, “with plenty of hands-on experiences.”
Pre-registration is required for the event, and the cost is $40 per person. As of Monday, five of the 12 total spots were still available.
