In partnership with Mike's Camera, this unique program starts with an optional, fast-paced and information-packed seminar about existing light photography on Friday evening from 5:30-8:30 p.m. that will be conducted by former Sacramento Bee photographer and Canon USA Live Learning Instructor Dave Henry. Then on Saturday morning, a photographers-only "bring your own tripod" photo workshop will take place inside the visually-enticing museum on Saturday morning from 7-9:30 a.m. (before it opens to the public for the day). Photographers of all skill levels can choose to attend one or both of the activities. 

Space is limited to 50 participants and advance registration is required. All photographers are required to sign a release of liability and a "not for commercial use" clause. For general questions about the Railroad Museum, please call (916) 323-9280.
