Presented by Alan and Claudia Beymer, our amazing Park photographers.

How do you take a picture of a Giant Sequoia?  Come find out.

Two of the most prolific photographers in Calaveras Big Trees State Park will provide a free slide show this Saturday May 5 of their beautiful work, including dozens of stunning photographs of giant sequoias  and the surrounding forest, plus wildlife seen frequently in the park. The event, one in a series of free seminars for the public, begins at 10 a.m. in the education building’s classroom at the Visitor Center, and ends at noon.
The event is intended to share great photos, plus offer ideas for people who use anything from a smart phone to an expensive set of cameras.
At the end of the slide show and  talk by Claudia and Alan Beymer, who have concentrated on photographing Big Trees and its residents for the last decade, participants can join them on a brief excursion outside into the park for pointers on photographing the big trees.
The talk will include tips on the best time of day for photography, taking advantage of seasons and weather, and what is required to capture  tiny wild creatures.
This summer the park staff will offer workshops on improving nature photography.

Seminars are free and open to the public. There is a day-use fee to enter the Park. Pack a lunch, bring the family and plan on spending the day among the Giant Sequoias. For more information call Calaveras Big Trees Association at (209)795-1196.
