Testimonial, Tia G.
"Trent's workshop worked out perfectly for me, particularly because he took the time to understand my level of photography (or lack thereof), and guided me accordingly. Although wildlife sighting is entirely on luck, I'm pretty sure my stellar sightings at Yellowstone would not have been possible without Trent's knowledge of wildlife and terrain - just to put that in perspective, we saw a pair of grizzly bears and a black bear just on my first day!
Trent suggested certain effects through the low grass on the bank, where we were observing a female elk and her calf, and it was both fun and challenging to try it out then and there. He was also patient and encouraging, when I was switching out my lenses. Most of all, I appreciated that Trent respects wildlife, and he ensures that we conduct ourselves in a way that we do not disturb the animals, for the sake of sighting or photography (unlike some other tourists we saw out there). All in all, if you're going into Yellowstone for wildlife, Trent's workshop is a must (and I can't wait to do it all over in a different season)!"
Book quickly if you'd like to join! The previous three workshops filled within a few days.
Join me for a three day wildlife photography workshop focusing on the abundant bird life of Florida's "forgotten" coast in Apalachicola.
This workshop will be limited to only three photographers.
Although you will be able to photograph several different species of birds, this is mainly a teaching workshop (not birdwatching).
- Dates: March 11–13, 2019
- Location: Apalachicola, Florida
- Lodging suggestion: Best Western - Apalachicola
- Length: Three days, roughly 4-6 hours each day. We will focus on morning and evening, avoiding harsh midday light.
- Skill Level: Beginner to intermediate
- Activity Level: Minimal. Some easy walking in sand and forest.
- Group size: Up to three photographers
- Included: Photography field instruction
- Not included: Transportation to meeting places, meals
Over the course of three days, you will learn how to set up your camera for capturing birds with a perfect exposure and accurate autofocus. Once you're comfortable with the basics, we will work on crafting a more creative image through composition and post-processing.
We are likely to encounter bald eagles, osprey, herons, pelicans, cormorants, and many other smaller shorebirds.
If you have already joined my online course, you can credit that amount towards this workshop. Ask me for the coupon code before ordering.
What kind of camera do I need?
A DSLR camera with telephoto lens at least 300mm is recommended, but other cameras can work as well. Contact me with questions about your specific gear.
What skill level is required?
There is no minimal skill level. We can start with the very basics.
Do I need a computer for this workshop?
If you want to work on post-processing your images, you will need a computer with Adobe Lightroom installed. If you don't have this yet, you can still follow along without processing your own images.
