I'm happy to announce for the first time, The Ultimate Waterfowl Workshop. We will be photographing at the Pocosin Lakes & Lake Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuges. Winter in eastern North Carolina is a very special time. Every winter, hundreds of thousands of birds migrate through our region of NC. For a few months they call, the Pungo Unit of Pocosin Lakes NWR & Lake Mattamuskeet NWR, home. Migratory birds such as, snow geese, tundra swan, many different species of ducks, Red winged black birds and the predatory birds that prey on all of these species. Most of the bear in the region are in a state of hibernation but you can still see many foraging in the woods and farmland that surround Pungo.
We were lucky enough to get a couple of snow falls this past winter, which made for some great photography. Birds are very active during inclement weather and in very cold temperatures. Below you find a few of my favorite images from this past winter.
Early one morning this coyote ran across the field that was full of tundra swan and snow geese. They all exploded up from the ground and I was able to create this photograph. It was a great moment, one I will not soon forget!
On this unique 3 day workshop I will be showing you everything I know about waterfowl behavior & photography. Understanding the animals and their behavior will help you create better photographs. For example; knowing just when to get ready before tundra swan decide to take off from their the flooded impoundment. Capturing their unique way of taking flight by running on the waters surface. Not only will you learn how to understand the wildlife, but you will learn how to create fine art portraiture of them individually and within their habitat.
I really hope you can join me on this unique photography adventure & workshop!
