Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark, founded in 1880, holds a unique place in America’s history, as a Southern constructed, blast furnace in a newly-created city.

Immerse yourself in the nation’s only 20th century industrial museum, located in Birmingham, Alabama, with your camera and your imagination.

Walk among the steel behemoths and work yards, now silent, and photograph a world that was actively producing 25% of our nation’s iron, a century ago.

Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark is offering a unique opportunity for photographers, with four, 1-day, photographic workshops in 2020, taught by Meg McKinney, a professional photojournalist.

Participants must be minimum of 18 years of age. Workshop is for participants only, no models, or guests allowed. No drones permitted.

Instructor: Meg McKinney is an experienced photojournalism teacher (Samford University), and will lead participants through out the day. Meg’s professional background includes staff news photographer at Texas dailies, staff photographer for Southern Living magazine, and an M.A. in Journalism, University of Missouri.
