Photographers are invited to participate in aviation workshops in conjunction with Atlanta Warbirds Weekend (AWW), Sept. 24 and 25 at Dekalb Peachtree Airport in Chamblee, Ga.
3G Aviation Media photo workshops are scheduled Saturday with an additional editing workshop and a sunrise photo shoot on Sunday.
New this year is an air-to-air photo experience on Saturday.
Interested photographers are encouraged to sign up early because past workshops have sold out, according to organizers.
“Photographers will be able to expand their photographic knowledge and skills in our small-group workshops that include classroom presentations, hands-on instruction and group dialogue,” said Douglas Glover of 3G Aviation Media. “Additionally, we are pleased to have the support of Nikon this year, allowing our students to shoot with the latest camera equipment, helping to push their creative limits further.”
This year’s AWW program features the AVG Flying Tigers and the largest gathering of Curtiss P-40 Warhawks in 50 years. At least 10 P-40s are expected to fly in for the event in conjunction with the 75th anniversary of the American Volunteer Group (AVG).
Saturday’s workshop ($199) runs from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and several aircraft will be positioned for the sunset and twilight photo shoots.
