Ralph's House

We will begin 2:00PM SHARP!   We will teach from 2-3, then let you have at from 3-5.  Then we want to have a COOKOUT (see more below)

WHAT TO WEAR?  Well you are probably going to get wet so wear or bring a bathing and a hat!  Ralph has a nice changing area.   Remember to bring your SUNBLOCK too.

WHAT ABOUT CAMERA GEAR?  If you have an UW housing for your camera please bring that.  EVERYONE who wants to experience this will be in the water with Ralph or John so you can enjoy the challenges (and fun) of UW Photography.  Also, we recommend you bring your Off Camera Flash gear too.  You will have models to practice both Pool Side and in Pool shots.  So an OCF would be very helpful and you can practice OCF in HARSH sunlight.

COOKOUT: Ralph and Marsha are providing Hamburgers and Hot Dogs for the Grill.   Joanna has volunteered to head up the Covered Dish Committee so if you would like to bring a side dish please coordinate that with Joanna Cumbo!


Do not hesitate to FB or text any questions you may have about this session.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ON SUNDAY, JULY 15th – We will start promptly at 2 pm.
