Raptors + Photography = Raptography

A Birds of Prey and Photography Workshop

Meet birds of prey up-close and personal as you can get.  You will learn about these majestic birds as well as learn and practice photography techniques geared towards getting great shots of birds of prey. We will get to practice photographing the birds both perched and in flight.

If you are  interested in scheduling a different date/location, please use the contact form at the bottom of this page to contact us!

If you have an advanced point-and-shoot or DSLR camera and you are at least familiar with basic concepts (e.g., shutter speed, aperture, ISO, motion blur, depth of field, noise), this 8-hour photography workshop is for you!  In the morning, we will go in-depth in reconsidering these basics in the context of birds-of-prey as subjects.  We’ll talk about the inter-related choices we make and what can work well for different scenarios.  We’ll also spend time honing our panning skills and understanding our focusing systems and how these apply to birds of prey.

After an intense morning of learning and practicing, we’ll spend 1-2 hours photographing the birds.   Afterwards, we’ll review photos and discuss issues or questions.

Half of the fee goes to Wings to Soar, a non-profit organization that cares for unreleaseable birds of prey and provides invaluable educational services to the community.
