Bird photography workshops by a photographer and birder. (Tim teaches shorebird identification classes for Audubon chapters.) Read more about the workshop below, then choose one to dive into the wonderful world of bird photography.
Malheur NWR Spring - Starting in April there's an incredible amount and diversity of birds migrating through the high desert plains of Central Oregon. Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and the Burns area are an incredibly productive area this time of year. Sandhill cranes, gulls, shorebirds, songbirds and raptors all converge in this area, and there's a Greater Sage-Grouse lek nearby too. With the open terrain of the high desert at Burns, Oregon and in and around Malheur National Wildlife Refuge there is an adundance of photographic opportunities on this photography workshop. Learn more about landscape and bird photography during this four day workshop.
The Palouse During Harvest - While the Palouse is fabulous in the spring with all the greens and reds of the barns, I think the harvest is even more spectacular. The golden wheat fields, huge harvesting machinery, along with the old farm equipment, barns, and of course all the endless patterns. The photographic opportunities are endless, the skies bluer, and the sunsets more intense in late July during harvest. But as always, the Palouse Falls is just incredible. Four and a half days of photography with four morning and five evening sessions. We'll do some post-processing in the mid-day (if and when time allows), limited to 5 participants, so you get a lot of attention and help creating those incredible images. Learn landscape photography, HDR and much more.
The Palouse in Spring - The Palouse is a vast network of wheat fields and endless opportunities to create stunning artistic images. The undulating terrain, the textures, colors, lines and shapes of the hills all lend themselves to creative photography. Toss in some old farm equipment, old red barns, abandon buildings and a spectacular waterfall and it's a place that shouldn't be missed. Four and a halaf days of photography three morning and four afternoon/evening shooting sessions. The workshop begins on the afternoon of June 6th and ends after sunset on June 9th.
Finally and what a great opportunity. The last weekend of the Seattle Audubon Master Birder Class was a fieldtrip to Eastern Washington. Our instructor Dennis Paulson had a surprise for us! While it was 10 AM when we were at the nest site, the haze didn’t detract from the amazing sense of awe I felt […]
Ocean Shores Ruff! Last month I spent four days around Grays Harbor photographing shorebirds and teaching a Fall Shorebird Photography Workshop. Here are the new birds for the year from that outing. I spent most of my time at Ocean Shores, since the first day I drove from the beach access point by the Best […]
These images were taken yesterday on August 16th at Ocean Shores, WA. On the outer coast near the Quinault Casino. This was a field trip sponsored by the Seattle Audubon, and there were nine of us on the trip. Later the bird was seen by two other birders see — eBird for those details. We […]
