Announcing - Affordable Bird Photography Workshops For 2011!!

Bird Photography Workshops

I'm very happy to announce my Affordable Bird Photography Workshops for 2011. I'm also very excited to add a two new locations.

  • The Everglades National Park Photography Workshop

    This workshop will focus on Landscapes and Bird Photography all in one exciting weekend. I've also included a Photoshop Class during down time at a near by location. During the cold months, we'll be able to photograph several native species and with a little luck, we'll get beautiful sunrise and sunsets!
  • Bosque del Apache AND White Sands National Monument

    This year will be my 3rd visit to Bosque del Apache conducting Affordable Workshops. You've seen the images from previous trips. However, in 2011 I'm going to make this AFFORDABLE trip even more AFFORDABLE!

    We'll visit and photograph at the one and only White Sands National Monument for a full day!! After sunset, we'll head back to Socorro and will end the journey.

    The first two people who register for this workshop can car pool with me for a fun trip!

I've several drafts in the works that I haven't finish writing yet but slowly but surely you will be able to read them. For now, I have three post you can read and learn from.

Expanding My Career As A Photographer!

I've decided to expand my carrier as a photographer. In the near future you will see me sharing more and more landscapes images with you all. As you know, I specialize in Bird Photography. However, my curiosity, creativity, dedication and strong drive to create landscapes is not something I can hide anymore... Soon my Affordable Photography Workshops will include specific landscapes locations around the United States!

My first landscape workshop is already underway. The Everglades National Park. This workshop should be very challenging and a lot of fun. We'll start very early photographing landscapes from different areas around the park and move on to Bird Photography. Bring your wide angle and longest lens!

With that said, let me share with you some of my landscapes work!
