Join Robert Scott at Heritage Park for VIP access to capture the parks unique and picturesque buildings during the best light and away from the crowds. This is your opportunity to create unique images in an autumn setting close to Halloween!

Robert will start the event with an hour lecture showcasing his heritage photography. The lesson will include creative composition & night photography techniques.

Participants will then be set loose on the town at approximately 3:00pm. This will be your time to wander the streets without the crowds, practice your new skills and ask questions.

Shortly after sunset, Robert will be demonstrating the basics of ‘light painting’ techniques using one of the buildings in the park. Participants are not required to attend the demo and may practice night photography using the street lights. Some really neat effects can happen.
