The Birds of Bosque del Apache
with Scott Frier
January 10 - January 15, 2011

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Thousands of Sandhill Cranes, Artic Snow Geese and a wide variety of other birds descend in the winter months on the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. Sunrise finds the cranes roosting in the shallow water of flooded fields. As the sun continues its ascent it is joined by the cranes and tens of thousands of geese, and we are witness to one of natures' most spectacular displays. Northern Harrier hawks patrol the fields in search of food while kestrels, eagles and other raptors soar through the sky.

On the afternoon of January 10, we rendezvous in Socorro, New Mexico. For the next three mornings we arrive at the refuge before dawn to photograph the birds' daily departure. Late mornings we return to the hotel for lunch, classes, and individual and group photo critiques. We then return to the Bosque to photograph the birds in the late afternoon light and to capture their dramatic evening “fly-in” to the roosting grounds.

We travel to Santa Fe Thursday evening for the remaining two days to edit, process and print our images in the Workshops’ state-of-the-art digital lab.

From photographing some of America’s most spectacular wildlife to the production of high quality prints, this workshop takes you through the entire digital photography creative process.


Package price includes tuition and park entrance fee. Transportation, meals, and accommodations in Socorro and Santa Fe during the workshop are not included. Class size is limited to 10.
