Escape to Alcatraz with Keeble & Shuchat Photography and Tamron USA for a daytime and nighttime adventure on “The Rock.” Tamron’s Northern California Sales Rep, Lew Held, Tamron’s National Tech Rep, Ken Hubbard and Professional Photographer Ed Heaton will all be available to assist you on this workshop. With the Alcatraz National Park Rangers as our private guides, our group will be allowed wide access to the grounds and the inside of buildings normally closed to the public. The real plus to this photo adventure is that our photo group and the rangers will be the only people on Alcatraz Island.
Often referred to as “The Rock,” the small island was developed in 1868 with facilities for a lighthouse, a military fortification, and a military prison. It became a federal prison in 1933 until 1963 and housed such notable criminals as Al Capone, Robert Franklin Stroud (the Birdman of Alcatraz), George “Machine Gun” Kelly and James “Whitey” Bulger. In 1972 Alcatraz became a national recreation area and received designation as a National Historic Landmark in 1986.
Capture both the picturesque skyline of San Francisco and also the imagery of historic Alcatraz prison. Both Keeble & Shuchat Photography and Tamron USA will have staff members on hand to help you capture all that you can in the while we have the Island to ourselves. Ken Hubbard, Tamron’s National Tech Rep, and professional photographer, Ed Heaton will be on hand to educate and demonstrate photography’s many techniques and visual development.
