Welcome to Tim Boyer Photography

We Specialize in Bird Photography Workshops and Bird Photography Education

I have a reputation for making sure that my clients get the best shots possible on my workshops.  I will make sure you’re in the right place for the best shots.  When we arrive at a location, if there are multiple places to stand or sit for different shots I will point these out to you.  If there’s a better angle – point of view, unique behavior, or I anticipate something special happening, I will let you know so you can photograph it!  My goal with each workshop is that you finish the workshop having learned something about birds and photography, made images that you will enjoy and like in the future, and that you had a great time.

If you want to  take award-winning bird images, consider taking one of my  bird photogrpahy workshops. Scroll down to see a short slide show of my images that have won awards.  And take a look at the 2017 Audubon Photography Awards second place image that Mick Thompson created while on the SE Arizona workshop!  Most of the workshops only have three or four people in them. This means you will learn more, get on the birds sooner, and create better images. These workshops offer a more intimate learning, and bird photography experience for each participant. These workshops aren’t for everyone, they are for the bird photographer that either wants to learn more about bird photography or to photograph bird species most large workshops don’t cover, and for birders who want to learn bird photography.

About the Workshops

Each workshop is designed for in-the-field instruction, where you'll shoot, review images, learn and improve your skills. For all multiple day workshops, there are image review sessions and post-processing workflow sessions. Workshops are lead by Tim Boyer a graduate of Seattle Audubon's Master Birder Program, published professional photographer, and author. Sites and locations are specifically selected to maximize your learning time. Less waiting. More practice. Better Images! 

The Birds of San Diego County, Birds of SE Arizona, the Eagles & Peregrines of the Washington Coast, and the Bosque del Apache Workshops have all produced award winning images.

Personalized Expert Instruction

Personalized instruction along with group instruction and image review all combine so you improve quickly.  Workshop sizes are very small, so you'll learn as much as possible about your camera, nature photography, birds and specific ways to improve your photography.  Class ratios vary between 1:3 to 1:6.
