I grew up in this region and have been shooting at this at this location for many many years. This spot offers a unique opportunity to be eye to eye with many diving waterfowl species that are usually found far from shore. Having spent the better part of 50 years outdoors in this area, I know its nooks and crannies and will put that experience to use finding all opportunities possible.
Understanding the sun, wind, tide, species personality traits and terrain translates into better imagery. This workshop provides an excellent opportunity to fine tune your bird in flight skills by shooting side by side with a highly awarded (including some photographs from this exact location), internationally recognized, bird in flight photographer. I’ll work with you to optimize your camera and lens settings for this type of shooting. I’ll also make sure you have a firm understanding of how to capture the perfect bird in flight shot (hands on shooting skills). Taking a small group of participants allows more one on one time to work though in the field questions.
Diving ducks are the primary focus. With a large group of birds usually present, this is a great time to capture birds in flight, behavioral interaction, and portraits.
Includes: Photographic instruction; three morning and four afternoon shoots (location to be determined by the weather and migration reports); four breakfasts provided by the hotel; transportation from the hotel to the marsh and various other shooting locations.
Not Included: Travel to Maryland, hotel, meals, personal items
