Warbler Worshops


CLICK TO RESERVE

I currently only offer individual outings where I work one on one with clients to target migrating and breeding songbirds.

Workshops take place in Eastern PA through central NJ.  I can usually tailor a spot most suitable for the client.

I do this in quiet settings, away from groups.  My workshops are not "point and shoot" offerings.  I work with clients on both birding behavior as well as photography techniques to improve their images.  

In a typical year I will photograph 30+ warblers.  Click here to see my warbler gallery

What's included:

  • Workshops begin at dawn and last through the mid morning (3 hour minimum) and I tailor locations to need.
  • Nikon shooters have use of a 500mm f/4 lens that can be mounted to their Nikon body.
  • After the shoot I also offer editing advice on pictures shot that day.
  • Pricing starts at $100-200 for a morning shoot, based on time and location.
