I currently only offer individual outings where I work one one-on-one with clients to target migrating and breeding songbirds.

Workshops take place in Eastern PA through central NJ.  I can usually tailor a spot most suitable for the client.

I do this in quiet settings, away from groups.  My workshops are not "point and shoot" offerings.  I work with clients on both birding behavior as well as photography techniques to improve their images.  

In a typical year, I will photograph 30+ warblers.  Click here to see my warbler gallery

What's included with 1-day event:

  • Workshops begin at dawn and last through the mid-morning (2 to 3-hour minimum) and I tailor locations to need.
  • Nikon shooters may have use of a 300 f/2.8 f-mount lens that can be mounted to their Nikon body.
  • After the shoot, I also offer editing advice on 2 pictures shot that day.
  • Pricing is $250-450 for a morning shoot, based on time and location.
