Birds In Flight Photo Workshop: San Diego

Southern California Bird Photography Workshop

February 10-14, 2019
San Diego, CA

Birds in Flight Photo Workshop
Master photographing birds in flight with Jason Odell February 10-14, 2019

Join me in San Diego, California to immerse yourself in the art of bird photography. This exclusive instructional photo safari is limited to eight (8) participants for a personal experience that you can’t get from the big tours. I offer “ask me anything” instruction during the safari to ensure you’re getting the best quality images. Because of the small group size, I’m able to offer a more intimate instructional style that allows each participant to get the knowledge they need to succeed.

This workshop is perfect for photographers who wish to capture portraits of birds and wildlife, plus hone their skills on photographing birds in flight. We will have the opportunity to photograph numerous species, including pelicans, cormorants, gulls, and terns. We will also likely encounter sea lions and other wildlife on the beaches, and have the opportunity to get some nice sunsets and environmental shots.

Each day, we will download and process our images together as a group, get critiques, and learn new techniques to make your photos into fine-art masterpieces. I will work with you to capture and process the best possible images into beautiful finished products.

Join me to photograph New York City at night! I’ve got one space left to join me in New York City May 31-June 3rd for a special twilight/night photography urban photo safari in New York City. This unique event is limited to six (6) photography enthusiasts who want to experience Manhattan in the magical evening hours.

I will teach you creative techniques in the field for capturing unique photographs you will be proud to share. Every morning, we will have group image review sessions and I will provide “ask me anything” sessions on workflow and post-processing. Group lodging in New York City is available (not included in workshop fee).

  • Long exposures
  • Blue hour & twilight
  • Cityscapes and architecture
  • Creative post-processing

Join me in Trinidad for bird photography

For 2018, I’ve listened to your feedback and I’m taking smaller groups (6-8) for a more personalized experience. I’m also offering more birding safaris, as it’s something many people have been asking about. I’m also offering photo tours, including another photo cruise to Alaska!

My philosophy is simple:  photography is a craft. I believe you learn the most when you immerse yourself in the complete workflow of photography (visualization/capture/processing) for more than just a morning or afternoon.
