SATURDAY, AUGUST 24, 7:30 AM – 9:30 AM

Join photographer Bill Walker in this fantastic workshop

Bill will start with an evening presentation on field tech-
niques including how to approach birds while respecting
their health and safety; then end with a field session to put
your learnings into practice. This class is aimed at photographers using DSLR cameras. However, much of the material is pertinent to folks doing digi-scoping or using fixed-lens cameras. Fee: $45. Limited to 15 people. Call to reserve your seat!
