A Day on Fairy Creek
Saturday, June 28th from 5:00am-1:30pm

Let photographer Bob Sisk introduce you to close-up photography of wildflowers and little critters (rabbits, songbirds, insects) at F-11 Photographic Supplies in a 90 minute classroom session. Sisk will show you the basics of shooting; including creative ways to make more of any basic closeup shot.

Practice Sisk's techniques in the field on Saturday, June 28th and make them your own. Learn by doing and reap the benefits of shooting with legendary Tamron lenses to hone your skills. Bring your camera, your enthusiasm and your creativity to the lecture, and be ready to check out gear at the close of the lecture Friday evening to use on Saturday's shoot.

Join in for a day of photographic play in the foothills on the east slope of the Bridger Mountains. Expand your creative vision at this June 28th field workshop in a breathtaking private location. You'll shoot alongside local photographer Bob Sisk and Tamron Rep John Carson. Doug Bundren of F-11 Photographic Supplies will be on hand to share photo tips and assist workshop guests in the field. All participants receive creative direction and plenty of personal attention.
Delve into the famous Tamron lens trunk at the workshop and try something new from the huge selection of lenses flown in for your use. Learn some simple lighting tricks using handy reflectors and diffusers--provided for the day--that give your images 'WOW!' status. This is a rain or shine outdoor event, so come prepared for sun, rain, hail, snow, biting bugs, grumpy grizzlies, wailing wolves, (wishful thinking about the latter two), and anything else that might come along.

Meet at F-11 Photographic Supplies at 5:00 a.m. Saturday morning to caravan to the location, about 30 miles from Bozeman. Travel is on your own and car pooling is encouraged. The field session runs until about noon, followed by a critique of the day's work. Bring enough water and snacks to make sure that you make it through the workshop conclusion (between 1 and 2 p.m). Pre-registration is required. $99.99
