Join Precision Camera and Sony representatives Chris Margaitis and Jimmy Ton along with local fashion photographer Todd White for an in-depth photo class followed by a sunset cruise and model shoot on Austin's scenic Lady Bird Lake. All attendees will receive a $25 gift card to Precision Camera.
First, we invite you to attend a hands-on workshop from 1 to 4 p.m Precision Camera led by Jimmy, Chris and Todd. They will walk you through the ins and outs of Sony’s full-frame mirrorless cameras and discuss shooting fashion style portraits. Later that evening, we will meet up at Lone Star Riverboat tours where you can borrow one of these full-frame marvels and get some hands-on experience shooting professional models at sunset with a very unique perspective of the Austin skyline. Not into shooting people? The riverboat's top deck offers a beautiful and unique view of downtown Austin that — especially at sunset — will thrill landscape and cityscape photographers alike.
This workshop is limited to 25 and is sure to sell out fast. We invite students to try out Sony mirrorless cameras, the new A9 and lenses during this sunset tour of Austin’s downtown skyline.
Price: $79 ($25 will come back in form of Precision Camera Gift Card)
