Sonoma Country Hot Air Balloon and Drone Photography Workshop

695.00

June 8-10, 2018

This is our aerial workshop for the season, and in more ways than one. Yes, we'll be attending the Sonoma Country Hot Air Balloon Classic, including the colorful Dawn Patrol event. If you like hot air balloons, you'll going to love this event because even though there are dozens of unique balloons, and we have more access to them than at other festivals.

Plus, you'll also have the opportunity to learn drone photography and create beautiful images from above. You will learn piloting tips, drone selection, photography techniques, and more. If you don't have a drone, we have one that you can use.

Plus, we have a few additional surprises for you as well. This will be a colorful, high flying workshop that will add truly unique images to your photo library.

If you have any workshop-related questions, please drop me a note at thenimblephotographer@gmail.com. I’ll get back to you right away. Reservations are held on a first come, first served basis.
