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 hours when there are no crowds. Photography buffs can join photojournalist Mike Lozon on an exclusive early morning or evening photo shoot of Windmill Island Gardens in full festival bloom. Mike will share tips and tricks on how to achieve the best results for shooting landscapes and architecture before leading the hands-on tour around the beautiful island gardens.
All participants of the Tulip Time Photo Walk have the option to submit one (1) photo taken during the event to be selected as Best Picture for each of the shoots. Winners will be awarded a Photography Quick Guide and will be featured in Tulip Time social media posts. Details for submitting photographs and announcing winners will be provided at the conclusion of each shoot along with tip sheets for creating eye-catching images.
Participants will meet at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the event at the entrance booth in the parking lot at Windmill Island Gardens. If the event is cancelled due to inclement weather, refunds will be issued as long as the participant has registered for the event and has provided appropriate contact information.
