6661 Imperial Hwy
Los Angeles, California 90045
Plane spotting is fun, but you're often stuck behind a fence or find yourself driving perimeter roads looking for the best-unobstructed view, all while wishing you could be on the field.
Now's your chance!
In this exclusive workshop, join Canon and famed aviation photographer, Mike Kelley, as we go on the field at LAX for a once-in-a-lifetime event.
Mike Kelley has created a successful career photographing aircrafts and airports all over the world—often using non-traditional techniques such as time-blending and abstract compositions. Aerial and aviation photography can be tricky but exciting—often perceived as something not within reach of many of us. During this 3-day workshop, you will join Mike on the LAX airfield to capture your own exciting aviation photos.
Mike will discuss his career path, techniques, and equipment, as well as his personal inspiration; all while showcasing commercial aviation and travel imagery in an entirely new and fascinating way.
