Bluewater Photo is celebrating their 4-year anniversary (and 1-year anniversary in their new  Culver City location) with a full day extravaganza with great gear specials, free gear talks and underwater photography classes throughout the day. Everyone is invited to attend this fun celebration, hang out with their favorite Bluewater Photo staff, and learn a little bit too! The event will be held on Saturday, April 11th from 10am-6pm.

There will be snacks and drinks (enjoy a beer while learning new strobe positions!) as well as a light lunch provided during the day. Attendees will also have chances to win prizes during a raffle drawing, and there will also be many in-store only specials.

As popular and well-known as Bluewater Photo is, this will be a well-attended event and they’re asking people to RSVP to plan for numbers. To be a part of this celebration, please click here to RSVP. Securing your spot is only $1 and that buys you two raffle tickets for our drawing during the day (you must be present to win for the raffle, so please do not just RSVP in hopes of getting an entry). Tickets will be given when you get to the store.
