If bird photography is one of your passions and you’d like to learn some tricks to improve your bird photography then this is the right workshop for you. We’ll be photographing birds from blinds in the desert southwest using feeders and water features to draw the birds in to range. The beautiful part of this workshop is that the birds will be coming to us and we have the luxury of creating stunning perches for the birds and your photographs! Much simpler and far more beautiful when we pick the perch for the birds to use rather than them choosing for us.
The other part of this Birds and Bats workshop is photographing bats! You are likely thinking but wait, they are nocturnal and really fast. You would be correct and so we’ll be using a phototrap to actually trigger your camera to fire. How’s this for awesome?
Possible Bird Species
The last time I was here I was actually able to photograph most of these species over the course of a day and a half. So with some luck, you’ll be able to get some of these great birds for your portfolio.
