APRIL 5-9, 2024



Join photographers Mandy Lea and Kendrick in the Ozarks of Missouri as we witness a truly extraordinary event—the totality of a solar eclipse! If you miss this one you’ll have to wait twenty years for the next one that can be seen in the United States!


During this workshop we’ll mix our loves of photography and camping to have a great weekend witnessing the rare total solar eclipse. We’ll enjoy camp-cooked meals, have photography lessons in the classroom and in the field, and we’ll even have a representative from NASA there to guide us through the solar eclipse experience.


Hotels and campgrounds are booking fast and charging ridiculous rates for this rare event. So, let us handle all the logistics and rest easy knowing that you have a place to watch the 2024 total solar eclipse!
