Join Panasonic Global Ambassador Rick Gerrity for a fun-packed Sunset Sunflower Photo Tour at Donaldson Farms (358 Allen Rd, Hackettstown, NJ 07840)! There will be great light and an opportunity to create some amazing photographs. We'll be using reflectors, fill flash, and other tricks of the trade to achieve the perfect exposures. And this year, we'll also be able to "walk in" to the fields for an even closer approach during shooting. Sign up and reserve your spot in this exciting excursion!

Check in with Rick at the Farm Market at 5pm.
• You'll have a chance to browse the market's wares before hopping back in your cars to travel to the nearby field at 5:45pm.
• Port-o-Jons are located near the farm market and the field.
• Flashlights and dressing in layers and comfortable, durable shoes is recommended – the fields are bumpy and dirty.
• Horses will be nearby, but please don't feed them or enter their barn.
• Fresh apples and water will be provided.
• The tour will last a bit after sunset.

*This tour is weather and crop conditions permitting. We may or may not be able to schedule a rain date. Please keep an eye on your email for notifications.

My daughter and I had a wonderful time taking pictures at the Donaldson Farm. Their Sunflowers fields are breath taking. The weather was perfect and Rick Gerrity is a great instructor. I would definitely recommend this course to everyone and look forward to going again next year if it's available.
