Bennett Spring State Park offers Photo Walk May 18

JEFFERSON CITY, MO, MAY 2, 2019 – Join professional photographer and naturalist, Al Griffin, as he leads a two-hour class that combines hiking and photography at 10 a.m., Saturday, May 18. Participants will meet at the Bennett Spring State Park nature center to learn tips on how to capture great photos and make the best use of those accidental encounters with birds and wildlife. Noticing wildlife and changes in the environment helps us to be better stewards of the land.

Participants are encouraged to bring a camera or cell phone camera, dress appropriate for outdoor weather and wear comfortable shoes. The principles of photography will be practiced and applied to all cameras equally.  Participants will learn that success in photography does not depend upon equipment as much as technique.

Al Griffin is a professional who does commercial and fine-art photography. Griffin’s commercial work has been published in various magazines, and his fine art images have been exhibited in New York City and Paris. Griffin is a faithful Bennett Spring State Park volunteer and a member of the Missouri Master Naturalist Program.

Bennett Spring State Park is located at 26250 Highway 64A in Lebanon. For more information about the event, call the nature center at 417-532-3925 or fish hatchery staff at 417-532-4418.
