Photograph raptors in a controlled natural setting.

About this event

Join us for this great opportunity to photograph several raptors in a park like setting. Owls, Falcons, Hawks and more will be available to photograph in a wide-open natural park like setting. You will have an opportunity to photograph birds in flight in a predictable and controlled outdoor setting.

The Falconer & Steve Ball - John “The Falconer” Prucich is a licensed practicing Falconer, and will be opening his new facility in Kent WA to us to photograph some of his most photogenic birds. John Prucich has a wealth of knowledge on birds and will educate you on each bird along the way. Our morning will start at 8:00am with a quick orientation and brief bird photography instruction provided by Steve Ball, Olympus Educator and long-time bird photographer. While in the field, Steve will be available for any camera setting questions or tips on how to maximize your photographic experience if you feel you need it.

Onsite – We start early when the birds are most active, and to take advantage of the morning light for best possible results. We will be working in an open field lined with trees, with opportunities for perched photographs. John will also be setting us up for the in-flight portion of the morning, where you will have an opportunity to get some great in-flight shots. All while learning about each birds habitat and hunting behaviors.

Also included will be a tour of the Falconer's facility to see how they are housed and learn more about them. Meet the Falconer's family which includes exotic chickens, turkey's and the amazing terrier dog pack!

Online Photo Critique - For those who wish to join, we will hold a zoom call the following Thursday to share our best images from the day and talk about how we captured it. It's always great to see how different people capture the same subject. Steve Ball who has judged several photo competitions in the past will be available for image pointers.
