Wildlife Model Workshop - Kalispell MT 6/4 - 6/7 - Baby Animals

In 1989 I led the first workshop to a game farm in the United States!  I have been leading trips to Triple D for 27 years and it has always been a wonderful experience!

Photographing at a game farm gives you not only the opportunity to get great photographs that would take years of work and cause undo hardship on wild animals, but it also gives you the chance to refine your wildlife photography skills by practicing various techniques that you can carry over into the field. The animals are captive, but they are still wild and behave in the same manner as a wild animal. The advantage is we get to have them posing in the areas we want and the poses are usually repeatable!

Practice your panning techniques, try different lenses, try fill flash, experiment with manual exposure and different shutter speeds all with the help of a professional photographer and your skills will grow by leaps and bounds as you create amazing images to add to your photographic library. You will have the chance to get behavior images, portraits and depending on the animals, running and jumping images as well.

Not only will we be photographing the animals, but there is plenty of classroom time for processing tips and techniques as well as review of your images.

Here is a little video giving you a glimpse of the type of images you can make if you join me on the workshop.
