Fall Photo and Camping Extravaganza
With Mandy Lea

Pack up the sleeping bags, ready the camper, gather up the family and spend two nights with Precision Camera and roaming photographer and nuCamp Ambassador Mandy Lea at the beautiful McKinney Falls State Park. Our last camping event for the spring sold out so quickly we thought we would plan another for the fall.

Make sure you bring your camera, lenses, tripod and memory cards.

 

Mandy Lea will once again lead the event, teaching us how to photograph and use our cameras better for vacation and landscape photos.

You'll be learning landscape photography from one of the best, as Mandy Lea and other pros guide our group to several unique areas around the park for sunrise and sunset shoots. Get one-on-one instruction from a brilliant photographer and add to your portfolio in this small group setting. See more details below.

Topics Covered

  • Landscape and Macro Photography
  • Lens selection
  • Shutter speeds
  • The best vistas in McKinney Falls State Park. 
We will be camping the evening of Friday, Oct. 18th through Sunday, Oct. 20th. Mandy will guide us to locations throughout the park for sunrise and sunset shoots. And if we can find a dark place and the clouds allow it, we'll dive into some night sky shooting.
 
Mandy has been a full time teardrop camper for three years, roaming around the country taking photos and giving workshops. 
 
A full itinerary for the event will be emailed to registrants the week prior. 
 
Friday Night Pot Luck Dinner
We will host a potluck dinner on Friday evening. Please plan for and bring a main dish or desert. If you have dietary restrictions, please plan accordingly. This will be a great opportunity to cement new friendships in a beautiful setting.

About the Instructor

Mandy is an adventurous spirit with an insatiable lust for travel and photography. She enjoys blending the technical aspect of taking a photograph with the experience of creating an image. This is what moves her to create art, and what she hopes to inspire in each person who she has the opportunity to share knowledge with.

After 17 years of working in camera stores and freelancing, Mandy took to the road. Supporting herself as a photographer, she now lives on the road out of her teardrop trailer. She shares her photography, passion, and adventure through her workshops and videos.
