I'm on the customer mailing list for Hunt's Photo & Video as well as Calumet Photographic in Cambridge, and each store has some interesting events and workshops coming up this spring and summer.

Hunt's is sponsoring the Essex National Heritage Photo Safari program this year. The Safaris are nature excursions done in conjunction with a camera manufacturer; bring your own equipment, or, if you're thinking of switching brands or upgrading, the company rep will have cameras and lenses available for you to borrow and use during the Safari (first-come, first-served).

Each event will feature demonstrations, lectures, and tips from professional photographers and the camera manufacturers, and you'll be able to take your images home on Delkin Devices memory cards. As a bonus, everyone will receive a gift certificate for Hunt's.

Each Safari runs from 7 a.m. to noon: The first hour is registration, orientation, equipment checks, etc.; the next three hours are the excursion, and the last hour is for equipment return and a wrap-up. There is a limit of 35 photographers, but if there is a waiting list of at least 10, another session will be held that afternoon. The cost is $45 plus a $3 online ticketing fee. If you're an Essex Heritage "Explorer", the charge is $30 plus the $3 online fee.

Here are more details.

Register online using the links below, and make sure you bring your printed receipt with you the day of the event.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
An essay about Rebirth Workshops
Now that it's been several months since I returned from a week-long Rebirth Workshop in Mississippi, I'm happy to look back and provide an overview of what we did that made it such an intense experience for me as a photographer....
Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
