HOOD CANAL, WASHINGTON EAGLE AND BIRD PHOTO WORKSHOP
MAY 23-27, 2013
Join Nate Chappell and Gorazd Golob for a workshop to photograph the Bald Eagles, Wood Ducks and seabirds of the Hood Canal region of Washington state. Dozens of Bald Eagles gather in a specific location on Hood Canal during low tides in the spring to feed on spawning sculpin fish. It's a great location for getting flight shots of eagles. Great Blue Herons and Glaucous-winged Gulls also join in the feast, providing opportunities for interaction shots between eagles and the other species. In addition to 4 morning sessions with the eagles in the afternoons we will photograph other birds including an afternoon at a park with Wood Ducks, a boat trip to photograph Tufted Puffins, Rhinoceros Auklets and other seabirds with a chance for Orcas, and a visit to a Pigeon Guillimot colony. Nate will give presentations on photographing birds in the wild and fill flash for bird photography. Gorazd is an award winning photographer who uses Nikon.
