Eagles, Skagit River, Washington 2022 - tour
January 4 - 7, 2022
Every year hundreds of eagles winter in and around Rockport, Washington. The eagles gather on the Skagit River for the salmon run. While eagles can be seen from the shore, the only way to get great photographs is by boat. I have rented the only jet boat on the river for our trip giving us the best photographic opportunities. During this tour we are going to spend 3 days concentrating on photographing eagles in their nature habitat. The tour is limited to just 5 participants, so there is plenty of time for one to one help. There will be images of eagles flying, fishing, fighting and more. And all at close range, where lenses from 100-400 will be all you need.
We will be going out in a boat on five excursions with a wonderful guide/captain with years of experience. We will have ample opportunity to work on our flight images. I will teach you how to photograph on manual and what settings you need to take razor sharp eagle images. I will be talking about shutter speeds, aperture, metering patterns, and ISO settings. From the boat our images will be hand held. Be prepared to take lots of pictures! Bring lots of memory cards as you will be taking between 2000-3000 images a day, downloading at night and doing it again the next day!
