See our national parks like never before on one of our National Park Photography Workshops. Taught by Tamron, USA photographers, our workshops will help you capture stunning sunsets, breathtaking sunrises and the magnificent Milky Way with some of America’s most iconic landscapes as a backdrop. Plus, you’ll enjoy great meals, uncrowded park shoots and wonderful group camaraderie. Our in-the-field and classroom instruction is designed for all levels of photographer from beginner to advanced. The best part? You can choose from our virtual, overnight, three-day and four-day offerings.

Amid the spread of COVID-19, please read about our workshop health procedures and cancellation policies updated as conditions change.

In the past, all of our workshops have been van-supported, however given uncertainty due to COVID-19 developments, in-person workshop attendees may be asked to drive their own vehicles to and from each photo shoot location in the parks to adhere to social distancing protocols. We will be in close contact with attendees in the weeks leading up to each workshop to confirm the transportation arrangements.

Erica Robinson, Tamron

Erica Robinson, Tamron Photographer

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
