Trains & Tripods

A unique photo opportunity inside the Museum.

Lights, camera, action! California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are proud to offer a two-part Trains & Tripods Photo Opportunity & Lighting Seminar for photographers on Friday evening, October 20 and Saturday morning, October 21.

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. 

To participate in the Trains & Tripods activities, the cost is $35 per person for the Friday evening seminar, $35 per person for the shooting workshop or $60 per person for both.
