I’m pleased to announce my dates for the South Texas Birding Experience 2017. For next year, I am offering two small group (max 4) sessions for getting some of the best bird photos in all of the USA. There is nowhere else I’ve been where I can capture closeups of small birds, including unique species like the green jay with perfect backgrounds.

  • Session 1: June 1-5, 2017 
  • Session 2: June 7-11, 2017

All Inclusive Photo Safari Includes:

  • Three days of private access to the photo blinds
  • “Ask me anything” field and classroom instruction (including processing and critique)
  • Single-occupancy air-conditioned lodging on site
  • All meals and happy hour
  • Transportation from the lodge to the shooting sites

Space is extremely limited, so place your deposit now to reserve your seat on this trip.

I hope you can join me in Texas!

I just got back from visiting Old Car City USA near Atlanta, Georgia. What an amazing place! With nearly 40 acres of vintage cars, this one-time auto parts yard is now a photography paradise for anyone looking to get creative while exploring textures, colors, and vintage icons of American automotive yesteryear.

At Old Car City, we'll explore close-up compositions of decaying vehicles.

I’ll be leading a creative photo workshop here November 4-5, 2016. We’ll have two days to shoot at Old Car City, plus field and classroom instructional sessions where I’ll help you bring out the best in your photographs; both during and after the shoot. I’ve also arranged for discounted lodging right down the road so we won’t have to make the hour drive from Atlanta each day.

This location is often described as a “bucket list” spot for anyone who likes old cars. I think it’s perfect for photographers of all levels, especially because the sheer vastness of the site really requires you to think about subject and composition while exploring details, textures, and colors in the huge collection of decaying vehicles.

Space is limited to 15 photographers!
