Bodie Ghost Town Photography Tour!

EXCLUSIVE PRE-OPENING AND AFTER CLOSING ACCESS featuring a session that includes access to many of the buildings and access after-hours for star photography and light painting! 

This is something new and an incredible EXCLUSIVE experience! 

WOW, Just WOW! EXCLUSIVE ACCESS to one of the best preserved Ghost Towns in the Nation! 
Bodie Ghost Town in the Eastern Sierras of California has long been considered one of the best-preserved Ghost Towns in the Nation. People come here every year to wander and explore and photograph. 

NOW, Imagine EXCLUSIVE access we have been able to obtain that will allow us to photograph and have the town all to OURSELVES after hours and under the stars from 6pm-1am! 

THEN, Imagine a morning in which we arrive at 6am before the park is open to the public and have access to enter many of the buildings to photograph! 

With special permits and fees paid to help fund the Bodie Foundation, we have been able to secure the ability to do this! HOW AMAZING!
