Photography Workshops with Kevin
 
Kevin will be running two photography sessions the Saturday and Sunday after his talk (October 6th and 7th). See below for details:
 
Saturday, October 6, 2018: Wildlife Photography:
 
Join Kevin here at GCBO Headquarters as he shares basic and advanced techniques for photographing wildlife. Some technical knowledge of how cameras work will be helpful for this session. Bring a photo on a USB drive for a critique session (first 20 registrants can bring 2 photos.) Group critique will provide helpful feedback in a fun learning experience!
 
 
Sunday, October 7, 2018: Raptor Photography:
 
The last workshop will take place at Smith Point Hawk Watch at Candy Abshier WMA in Smith Point, TX. Kevin will be leading a field session where participants will photograph raptors in flight, butterflies, wildlflowers and whatever else we can find!
Each participant will get individual attention on how to best capture flight and action wildlife images. If you want to take your action photography to the next level, this is a good workshop for you. Reminder- there are no services at Smith Point. Bring your lunch, sunscreen, hat, binoculars, camera, spotting scope, and plenty to drink.
