As a pro macro photographer, I have always wanted to create an online Macro Photo Club, and it’s finally happened.
The Macro Photo Club is a place where members will experience a new way of learning.  Members will have lots of benefits and fun.
The 1st of each month, members will have a link to 12 videos that will cover a variety of themes, plus a video newsletter.  Finding subjects in the field, how to compose them, and working the camera techs. Videos covering equipment and post processing tips will also be covered.
Members may send me one image per month, and with the entries I will choose 10 images for a video critique.
Members will receive a code for a 50% off discount for my macro boot camps (2018), e-books, videos, or macro mentoring program.
I have a facebook group set up for members to post images.  In the monthly video newsletter, I will have a macro theme for you to go out and shoot, and members can post their images of that theme on the Mike Moats Macro Photo Club site on facebook.
I will randomly choose club members to be featured macro photographers on my website blog, and all social media connections.
The Macro Photo Club has some great sponsors who are generously offering free products that I will raffle off.  Present sponsors, Tamron, Hunts Photo, Vanguard, Acratech, Topaz, Think Tank Photo, Hoodman, Datacolor, Thompson Photo Accessories, and adding more in the future.
This is just the beginning and hope to expand to more benefits as we go.
Yearly membership fee is only $39.

Fall – Old Car City Workshop

Posted: August 11, 2017 in Uncategorized
Last year the country got to see the most unique auto graveyard in the world.  The New York Times did an article about Old Car City, and soon followed was CBS Sunday Morning News, Time Warner News, Yahoo News, and even a rumor of a reality show.  The attendance of photographers has exploded since all the news reports, which is good so that it keeps Old Car City in business.
CBS News video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l56yUuR48LI&feature=share
4,200 old cars, six miles of trails, through beautiful woodlands.  Hotel only 2 miles away.
45 miles north of Atlanta, Georgia, and two miles east of I-75.
Let me show you where all the best shots are, and how to get the most out of this magical place.
Old Car City Workshop
November 10th and 11th, 2017
Cost $299 – Plus daily entry fee into Old Car City

(NEW) Macro Photo Club

Posted: July 29, 2017 in Uncategorized
You’ve heard of camera clubs, or you may even be part of a camera club, well I’m going to start up an online Macro Photo Club.  You pay a membership fee good for one year, and each month you will receive access to 12 videos that cover different subject matter.  You will see me working in the field finding subjects and how-to shoot them,  post processing tips,  equipment tips, and all things related to helping you with your macro photography. Members will have a 50% discounts on any of my Macro Workshops, or others products.  Each month members can send me one image, and I will pick ten images of those submitted to critique through a video that all members can view.  Members will have a chance to be a featured macro photographer on my blog and all my social media outlets.   I’ll be working on other benefits, so stay tuned to updates on this new Macro Photo Club.  I also hope to have sponsors that will offer discounts on their products.  This is all in the planning stages and hope to have some more info on signing up soon.  Check out this promo video, https://goo.gl/s1MqHt
