With 350 days of sunshine a year, Tucson, Arizona provides the perfect environment to explore the natural landscape. Tucson’s wealth of historical sites include turn-of-the-century architecture, various museums, and plenty of parks for venturing outdoors. To discover the natural beauty of this southwestern city, join the Mentor Series on November 6th through November 8th as we travel to Tucson, Arizona with Nikon Ambassador Tamara Lackey and Nikon Professional Photographer Tom Bol.
Photograph birds of prey during Raptors Free Flight at the Sonora Desert Museum. Showcasing the natural behavior of native birds in the open desert, the flight demonstration will provide a great understanding and appreciation of desert wildlife. The 98-acre museum is also brimming with botanicals, various animal species, mineral collections and an aquarium for photographic exploration. Finally, as we end the day at Saguaro National Park, we will capture the cactus-studded landscape as the sun falls over the desert during our sunset light painting demo.
After an early departure to capture the morning’s first light, photograph the exterior of Mission San Xavier del Bac, a functioning, 18th century mission. Framed in the warm browns of the surrounding hills and the violet shadows of more distant mountains, the Mission rises, brilliantly white from the desert floor. Learn to use your off camera flash to photograph models at Prima Air and Space Museum—an airplane graveyard—and at Old Tuscan Studios, an Old West town with saloons and churches. A visit to White Stallion Ranch to capture images of horses, wranglers, barns and ranch life concludes the photographic journey.
