WARE CO., GA (WALB) -

From the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge

John Reed's Winter Nature Photography Workshop will be held on March 15 and 16, 2014.

The two-day workshop consists of classroom and hands-on exercises on Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and hands-on photography in the field on Sunday morning from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

All activities will take place at the East Entrance of the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, eleven miles southwest of Folkston, GA along Georgia State Highway 121/23.

Participants must provide their own camera and any other photographic equipment they need. All photography skill levels are welcome to attend.

The Saturday class will expand students' basic knowledge and/or build on other workshops attended.  Participants will dig deeper into key photographic principles such as exposure, metering, and composition.  Registration begins at 7:30 a.m.  Sunday consists of a full morning of field photography exploring the refuge, with Reed available to answer questions and offer tips and advice.  The focus will be on photographing alligators, flowers, spider webs, and more that may be seen in mid-March.

Space is limited to the first thirty registrants.  The cost for both sessions is $65 if payment is received on or before March 14; $50 for Saturday only; $25 for Sunday only. After March 14, both workshops will be $70 at the door, or $55 for Saturday only; $30 for Sunday only. The workshop is sponsored in part by the Okefenokee Wildlife League, with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit their work on behalf of the refuge. 

For registration and information, call the refuge visitor center at 912-496-7836 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  The entrance fee to the refuge is not included in the cost of the workshop.
