Tulip Time Photo Walk

Additional Dates and Times

Tulip Time is offering photography enthusiasts a unique opportunity to see one of Holland’s top tourist attractions through the eyes of a professional photographer during pre- or post-admission hours to avoid crowds.

Photography buffs will join two local photographers, Kathy Odiorne and Heidi Quellet, on an exclusive early morning or evening photo shoot of Windmill Island Gardens in full festival bloom. The duo, who became long-time friends through Professional Photographers of America, will share tips on how to compose and light landscapes and architecture while touring the beautiful island gardens.

All participants of the Tulip Time Photo Walk have the option to submit one (1) photo taken during the class to be selected as Best Picture. There will be one winner per class, who will be featured in Tulip Time social media posts. Details for submitting photographs and announcing winners will be provided at the conclusion of each class.

Class participants will meet at least 5 minutes prior to the start of the class at the entrance booth in the parking lot at Windmill Island Gardens. The class will be offered drizzle or sun so please dress for the weather. All participants must bring their own equipment.

Tickets: $35 per person
