Sunrise Photography with Tamron // Photo Meetup • October 14, 2023

October 14, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 am

Sunrise Photography with Tamron

Photo Meetup | Mississippi Gateway Regional Park | October 14, 2023


Join Mike Pazandak of Tamron for a sunrise photo meet-up at the Mississippi Gateway Regional Park on Saturday, October 14th at 7am. This is a free event aimed at photographers of any experience level with interchangeable lens cameras. During this event, our team of seasoned photographers will help you with composition, exposure, white balance and other camera settings to make the most of the colors. Learn how to create dynamic silhouettes against the vibrant hues of the rising sun and master the art of capturing the perfect balance between foreground elements and the awe-inspiring sky.

After our initial meetup, you’ll be free to explore the area on your own or stick around the experts for more guided, personalized advice. Whatever you need, we’re here to help!  This is a great opportunity to enhance your photography skills and capture captivating sunrise images along the Mississippi River. We look forward to seeing you there!

BE PREPARED: Pack your interchangeable lens camera, lenses, and charge up your batteries before the event! We also recommend bringing additional batteries and memory cards just in case. As this event will be held outdoors rain or shine, we recommend that you dress comfortably and accordingly for the weather. 

When you arrive, enter the parking lot at the main entrance and we will gather as a group near the visitor’s center to check-in. A select amount of loaner lenses will be provided by Tamron at this time—if you intend to borrow gear during this event, please be sure to arrive early as lenses are limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note: You must have a valid driver’s license to check out Tamron loaner lenses.
