The antiques stores in Lucketts offer unique collections of décor, furniture, and knickknacks, making them a goldmine for photographers. We will be shooting at two stores that offer distinctly different types of photographic opportunities. From quirky and creative to unusual and hip, you will find that the antiques have their own personality. If you like textures, patterns, and subjects with character, you'll have a great time at Lucketts.

To give us more flexibility and freedom with our shooting, we will be photographing on the grounds around the buildings where we'll find a wide variety of treasures to photograph. The class begins before the stores open, minimizing crowds of customers.
