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 facility 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, OM System Ambassador 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.

Gear - Interchangeable Lens Camera and lenses in the 200mm to 400mm range. Tripods and monopods are welcome. Rain sleeve for camera and lens if your gear is not weather sealed are available at Kenmore Camera.

Location - The location is an open field with a small hill to walk. Attendees should be able to walk on uneven grassy ground. Weather is unpredictable, however, we will photograph if there is a light rain, but that may limit the in-flight availability due to birds unwillingness to fly in rainy conditions.

Cancellation Policy - If the event is cancelled due to poor weather a full refund will be given to participants. If you have to cancel prior to 24 hours of the event, you will get a full refund. A cancellation within 24 hours, will only be refunded if we are able to fill the space. No-show will not be refunded.
