Join us at this historic, imposing, architectural landmark. The first prisoner was housed here in 1836 and for the next 168 years it earned the distinction of the oldest continually operating prison in the US until it closed in 2004. You are in for a real treat as we explore the many buildings and amazing rooms Come learn basic and advanced techniques for capturing beautiful images of this unique structure. We will teach you HDR (High Dynamic Range) exposure tips, along with LED and flashlight painting some of the unlit dungeon rooms. For your GPS this is located at 115 Lafayette St, Jefferson City, MO 65101 (at the corner of Lafayette and E. Capitol Ave., meetin on E. Capitol Ave.) and the site is approximately 90 minutes from West St. Louis County. Street parking is available.

We will meet in the main entrance on E. Capitol Ave no later than 9:45am and start our tour promptly at 10am. Unlike last year, we will pay your $40 entrance fee as it is included in your registration cost for this 3 hour class.

Professional photographers Tom Tussey and Scott Rovak are your instructors. 

What you should bring:

Wide angle and short telephoto lenses (or zooms) 14mm to 200mm

Macro lens (if you have one)

Sturdy tripod and remote release (if you don’t have one we recommend using the 2 second timer)

Water, it will likely be hot by 1pm

Masks are recommended, not required, but please respect everyone’s space. Both Scott and I have been immunized.

A wide angle lens to absolutely necessary to capture the cramped cell interiors as well as the other cell blocks, hallways and stairways throughout the prison. Many of your exposures will be longer than one second since you will want a low ISO of 100-200 @f11 to f22.
