Max Skwarna takes nature photographs at Tommy Thompson Park

Elevate your skills at insect, arachnid, and flower macrophotography with Max Skwarna. Max is a published photographer, experienced photography teacher, and knowledgeable naturalist.

Max will share expert techniques as you explore the natural wonders of Tommy Thompson Park. Learn how to get the most out of your camera, where to set your focus, how to use creative angles, and more!

The workshop will take place both indoors and outdoors.

Spaces are limited, as this workshop is designed for a small group with opportunities for one-on-one support. Participants need to bring their own DSLR or point-and-shoot camera with macro capabilities and tripod. (Note: macro lenses can be rented for the weekend from various camera supply stores.)

If you have questions about whether this course is for you, email Max Skwarna at

The workshop location is an approximately 10-minute walk into the park from the entrance gate. Free parking is available at the entrance.
