Join us for a sunset and evening photo shoot at Hagerman NWR. This shoot will include sunset shots across the water and moonrise with the August 1st super moon. We will have permission to stay in the refuge after dark and will have opportunity to try out some light painting and other low exposure shots.

This event is limited to FOHNWR Nature Photography Club members only. Registration is not required. Click here to become a member of Friends of Hagerman and select a membership with Photo Club.

This shoot is weather permitting so please check back within 48 hours of the event for updates.

8:00pm. Meet at the 1st pad on Plover Drive (with the 2 pumpjacks). We will be there for sunset photos across the water. Sunset is predicted at 8:27pm.

8:57pm Moonrise. We should have many options to photograph the moon from the first and second pads as it rises. We can also try light painting on the pumpjacks or other long exposure shots. 

What to wear/bring: Hiking shoes, insect repellent, water, camera, and photography equipment. Tripod and flashlights recommended for the night/light painting shots. If you have any glowsticks or laser pointers those can also be fun for night shots.

Parking. Click for a Refuge Map. If you are able to walk a short distance, park on Wildlife Drive and then walk up Plover Road to the pads. There are not many spaces to park cars on the pads on Plover Drive. Please be aware that Plover Drive is gravel and driving too close to the pads will create dust and may interfere with people that have setup their cameras and equipment. Because of limited parking space, we will be utilizing the van which will leave the Visitor Center at 7:45pm.
