Tufted Puffin Bird Photography Workshop
We'll go to one of the only spots left to photograph Tufted Puffins in the San Juan Islands. This two-day workshop is scheduled to take advantage of the summer weather we have in late July and timed for when the Tufted Puffins are feeding their chicks. Tufted Puffins, Pigeon Guillemots, and Rhinoceros Auklets are the main targets. There are also other possibilities like; Great Blue Herons, and all three cormorant species (Brandt's, Pelagic and Double-crested), Black Oystercatcher, Caspian Tern, Turkey Vulture, Western Sandpiper, Belted Kingfisher, Common Murre, Marbled Murrelet, Bald Eagles, and a variety of gulls. We'll be in a chartered 32-foot boat that sits lower in the water than the other/larger sightseeing boats. This means you'll get better images on this workshop then if you go on a big boat. We’ll leave the dock early in the morning so we can have morning light on the birds. After the morning shooting session we’ll return to have lunch, then in the afternoon, there will be an image review/post processing session. Lodging and meals are not included; bring water and snacks since we’ll be out on the boat for 5 to 6 hours. Day 1, July 17th arrive at hotel and 6:00 PM Orientation and presentation on how to photograph birds from a boat. Day 2 early morning to mid day photography session of sea birds, lunch and then an afternoon image review session. Day 3 July 19th, early morning photography session with the sea birds then lunch in Anacortes then departures.
