I have been blogging for…gosh…over eight years now. Sometimes it seems like just yesterday when I sat down at my computer and designed my very own blog. Other times it seems like it has always been a part of my life. There are ups and downs sometimes I am full force blogging daily, and other times like more recently it has taken a back seat to a little thing called life. Despite the ups and downs one thing I have loved about getting into blogging is the photography side of it. I always thought my posts looked so much better with images that popped! Through the years of blogging I have acquired two great cameras and even bought my daughter her first “real” camera (that is even better than mine) and taken a few online photography classes. So imagine my excitement when Best Buy announced a they were hosting a Photography Workshop Tours and Free In-Store Workshops.
The workshops are being held in select cities:
- San Diego
- New York City
About the Photography Workshop Tours
After check-in you will be transported by bus from your local Best Buy store to a specially-chosen location where we’ve created custom shooting set-ups complete with models, props, and accessories. Each set-up is designed to teach key skills in portrait & action photography. You will learn how to maximize your camera’s settings, learn new techniques and how accessories can advance your photos to the next level, all with the hands-on help of our Experts.
These are half-day excursions where you’ll get the chance to work with pro photographers & our Camera Experience Shop experts to conduct 4 individual photo shoots. You’ll get to test & try an array of lenses & accessories to truly unleash what’s possible with photography, learn to think like a pro & walk away with some amazing photos. At the end of the day in addition to lunch you’ll get a bag of camera goodies + if you share your photos on social media with the #BestBuyPhotoWorkshops you’ll be entered to win Best Buy gift cards or a dream photography package!The events cost $50 – but you’ll easily make this up with the giveaways, lunch, transportation, and the priceless opportunity to work with pros!
