Cass Photography Workshops - Scriptunas Images

A Cass Scenic Railroad State Park tradition since 2008, the Cass Photo Workshops offer something for nearly every type of photographer. Led by seasoned photographers Walter Scriptunas II and Clayton Spangler, the workshop weekends include not only great learning experiences, but also a great steam railroading photography experience. Our workshops are small, typically including only 25 participants, providing great hands on teaching and clean photo lines. The Cass Photo Workshops continue to evolve each and every year, always providing something new and exciting for participants. 

This year's workshop will take place on October 6-8, 2017. 

The 2017 workshop will NOT feature a photo freight train as we have in previous years.
