Fredericksburg, Texas KOA
Campsite price is NOT included in the entry fee
Get ready to kickstart your summer of adventures with two nights of camping in the beautiful Texas Hill Country with roaming photographers Mandy Lea and Kendrick Callaway! We’ll base our annual Spring Photography and Camping trip at the Fredericksburg, Texas KOA—centrally located amongst beautiful flower fields, the charming town of Luckenbach, and the famous wineries and distilleries of the Hill Country!
Whether you’ve been shooting for decades or you’re just learning how to use a camera there’s plenty to photograph! Of course, we’ll focus on wildflowers, sunrises, and sunsets, but we’ll also visit local wineries, distilleries, farms, the town of Luckenbach, and more as we explore the surrounding area.
This annual event has quickly turned into one of our favorites. We get to share our loves for camping and photography with a great group of friends! For this trip, we’re trying something new by getting out of the nearby State Parks and instead focusing on scenic Fredericksburg and the surrounding area. Plan on having a fun weekend with friends while exploring and photographing some great local venues!
What to expect (a detailed itinerary will be emailed the week before the event):
- Your $149 registration fee allows entry to the event for everyone in your campsite
- A fun weekend of camping with fellow photographers
- Personal and group photography instruction from Mandy and Kendrick
- Small group setting
- Evening photo review session with editing tips and advice
- Group campfires
- Possible potluck dinner (depending on COVID restrictions)
- Tips and advice for living on the road and camping
About the Instructors
Mandy has been in the photography industry for over 20 years. After growing up in Colorado she moved to Austin, TX where she worked at a local camera store for 10 years. First, she managed the print lab, then moved on to start their education department. She has been leading landscape photography workshops for five years and loves helping students capture images the way they see them in real life. Now, she lives full-time in a tiny camper with Kendrick to teach landscape photography workshops and guide backpacking trips…
Kendrick began photography when he picked up Mandy’s spare camera, a Nikon D800. He took that camera and hit the ground running! Kendrick especially enjoys helping beginner photographers learn new things and capture images they can’t wait to show their family and friends. Now, he lives full-time in a tiny camper with Mandy to teach landscape photography workshops and guide backpacking trips…
