Nikon Photo Safari with photographer Gary Stanley
Capture! Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site
7am - 12 pm
Don't miss the last Photo Safari of the season on August 15th! We'll be equipped with the latest and greatest camera gear from Nikon and coached by professional photographer Gary Stanley as we go behind the scenes of the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site.
Capture the nation's first fully integrated ironworks from 1646! The site also features seven operating waterwheels that set the reconstructed mills to motion. Walk the scenic one-half mile nature trail consisting of marsh and woodland trails. Follow the path from the visitor contact station to the blacksmith shop and down along the east bank of the Saugus River.
Ready to embark? Photo Safari sessions are open to the public and registration for each event is required. You will receive hands-on instruction from Hunt's knowledgeable technical experts during the session, and also go home with all your images on a free digital memory card and a gift certificate from Hunt's Photo & Video. The cost for each 2009 Photo Safari (5 hour session) is $45 ($30 for Essex Heritage Explorers).
Registration is available online by credit card, or call Emily at 978-740-0444.
