Nationally Known Photographer to Hold Workshop at Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center

ATHENS, Texas—Famed photographer Wyman Meinzer will hold an unusual digital photography workshop at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center July 4, 2007.

Taking advantage of the fact that TFFC hosts one of the largest fireworks displays in East Texas each July 4, Meinzer will concentrate on how to take photographs of sunsets, fireworks and other subjects in low-light conditions. Class participants will be able to shoot fireworks photographs from a close vantage point and will also have the opportunity to photograph visitors fishing and picnicking prior to the fireworks show.

The class will run from approximately 3:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Registration fee of $195 covers all course costs; admission to TFFC; and watermelon, ice cream and hot dog feasts. Students must provide their own equipment.

Deadline for registration is June 20. Phone registration is available by calling (903) 676-2277, or a form may be downloaded from the TPWD Web site.
