One Day WOW! Trips

Fantastic Fire-Spinning and More Surprises!  
Our most popular class is back with amazing new effects. While playing with fire can sometimes exciting, it can also be extremely dangerous. However, in a controlled environment with the fire department standing by on-site, we will provide you with the opportunity to safely photograph some absolutely amazing images of “Fire Spinning” and other fire art. Several of last year’s participants went on to win photo competitions based on images they captured during this class. We've been busy developing new spins with different effects and colors for new and extremely cool results!

Meets: Saturday, April 22, 2023 from 7:15PM-09:15PM
Location: TBD West Chester, PA 

Amazing Beauty in the Abandoned and Decaying (Lukens Steel) 

join us for this unique opportunity to photograph inside the abandoned and decaying rolling mill of the former Lukens Steel Company. The facility started operation in 1793 and has experienced many changes over the years. We will be exploring the “120-inch rolling steel mill” that was abandoned decades ago. Inside the 90,000 sq ft facility there are many stored pieces of the destroyed New York’s Twin Towers as well as some old machinery and locomotives. The decaying building itself provides many fantastic photographic opportunities for those with a creative eye.  New this year: We now have access to the “Power House” as well. Release of liability required. This event is rain or shine.

Meets: Saturday, June 10, 2023 - From 9:00AM-12:00PM
National Iron & Steel Heritage Museum (50 S 1st Ave, Coatesville, PA 19320)
