Waterfowl Photography



Portraits of Canvasbacks may be possible during this amazing opportunity!

We have a great location to photograph winter waterfowl up close and personal. The actual location will be disclosed in your registration package, but it will be along Maryland’s Eastern Shore region, famous for harboring waterfowl throughout the cold weather months.

This workshop will be very limited in people so that we can all participate in close-up, water-level opportunities to capture such wary birds as Canvasback and Redhead along with many other species… all present in great numbers. Flight shots in the golden light of sunrise and sunset, backlit splashes and eye catching portraits will all be explored and captured!

Evenings will offer instruction and discussion.

You will need a willingness to get muddy and a desire to have fun. Patience will pay off with stunning images!

Note: We will not ignore other wildlife events in the area and will keep abreast of activities of Short-eared Owls that have been reported nearby as well other raptors!
