Commack, NY—Tamron will take its custom workshop van to cities across the country again this spring to bring shooters an educational photo experience. The all-new 2018 workshop tour—Tamron Tours Presents—kicks off at the end of April in Providence, Rhode Island. In addition, it is slated to hit dozens of locations across the United States. An authorized Tamron retailer will host each event.
This year, the tour team consists of expert photographers who will present an informative seminar to provide gear and photo tips on a handpicked topic for each tour stop. Moreover, the next day, participants will be taken to visit a local venue where they will get in-the-field hands-on instruction from Tamron’s team of experts. At the location, they will also be able to try out any Tamron lens. No matter what tour-stop attendees visit, they will receive special discounts on Tamron lenses and insight from the Tamron tech. In addition, they will see the latest Tamron products.
Moreover, attendees will be eligible to enter to win any Tamron lens of choice. Tamron will give away three lenses: on July 15 from eligible surveys completed April 27 through June 30; on October 15 from eligible surveys completed July 1 through September 30; and on January 15, 2019 from eligible surveys completed October 1 through December 31.
“Our team will provide a variety of experiences taking advantage of local photographic opportunities, such as a scenic hike through a local park, a walk along busy city streets, a tour of the local botanical garden or a memorable trip though the city zoo,” the company announced. “No matter what the subject, you will learn how to frame through your lens, make exposure adjustments to get the results you want, and much more.”
All workshops include a two-hour seminar, transportation to/from the field workshop venue (when applicable), loaner lenses, a welcome bag, a tour T-shirt, bonus savings on Tamron lenses, as well as lunch during the workshop.
The workshop dates, locations as well as fees will be posted as they are scheduled and will be updated constantly. Interested parties should check out the tour section of Tamron USA’s website often. They can also follow the Tamron Tours Facebook page.
