Needs a location


Come join me for a very interesting photography opportunity at a private truck/auto/etc. junk and salvage yard. If you like rusty and crusty, and great patina, this is the place for you. There will be cars, trucks of all kinds, buses, jeeps, a couple of fire engines, and some unique vehicles and equipment. This location was a site for the popular "American Pickers", however this is not Flemings. Macro shooters will be in 7th Heaven.

This meet-up is open to all levels of photographers. I will be available to offer guidance and suggestions on exposure, settings, etc. Wide angle to moderate telephoto lenses will be most useful, plus a macro lens if you are so inclined. Tripods are always highly recommended. Some photographers attend just for access to the location, others to learn, and others to try a new technique or two. I will also direct you to some of the more interesting areas. A liability waiver will be required to be signed prior to entrance onto the private property.

Good hiking shoes or if it rains in the preceding days, maybe a pair of duck boots would be in order. This will be a weather dependent workshop, so any weather issues will be emailed to you the day before.

The location of this workshop is private, and is completely fenced in and locked. Thunderbolt Photographics will be the only authorized workshop organizer with access to this property. Due to the nature of controlled private access, we will be meeting at the Vineland Ramada Inn/IHOP in Vineland, NJ. We will depart from there at 8:20AM to caravan/carpool etc.to our site. We are approximately 10 minutes from our location. We will be entering the property as a group as access is highly controlled, so please be to the Ramada Inn by 8:15AM. This location must not be disclosed to friends/photo groups/social media/etc.
