Roanoke Times staff shooter Sam Dean is hosting an outdoor photography workshop at the paper’s offices on Thursday, Oct. 21. The workshop, from 7:30-9 p.m., is free and open to the public. An RSVP is required and the deadline is today. You can RSVP by phone at 981-3393 or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those of you who pay attention to photo credits probably know that Sam is by my side on a lot of outdoors adventures, such as for several of my Fun in the Sun series stories this summer. He is not my personal shooter, and all of our staff shooters do a good job with outdoors content. But it just kind of works out that Sam is out there a bunch. He loves the outdoors as much as I do, and is up for anything. We’ve had some fun days out and about. And we’ve also some pretty epic — i.e. challenging — days out there. He never complains. And he always gets good art.
Those of you have any interest in outdoor photography should try to get to this workshop. Again, it’s free. And I think they may even be serving refreshments.
