Birds, Desert Landscape, Night Skies

The southern Arizona desert is a place of stunning beauty with elegant Saguaro cacti and rugged hills. The night skies are inky black and the daylight is amazingly brilliant with birds of amazing beauty.

This tour will teach you how to set up and light night landscapes, photograph the dazzling desert sun and capture the colorful birds of the SW desert. Our subject matter and photography will be as diverse as the environment around us. We have timed this workshop for the new moon phase for the best night skies.

Join us for 7 days of amazing photographic adventure as we explore and photograph the landscape, flora, and fauna around Tucson Arizona.

Instruction

This workshop is primarily a field shoot, each day we will pack in as many photographic sights as is comfortably possible. Some days we will start before sunrise, other days we will go past sunset. Our pace will be energetic, but not exhausting.

We will teach and coach you in the following areas of photography, how to capture great moments in bird photography, how to set up your camera’s exposure and focus system for birding, maintain the fastest tracking for birds in flight. In addition, we will teach you a complete workflow for night skies and night landscape photography, including how to optimize your exposures and lighting for night landscapes.

Instruction will be a combination of field demonstrations and one on one instruction. Instructors, John Gregor, and Tomy O’Brien each have over 35 years of professional photographic experience. Our goal is to help you get great photographs.

Location

We will start and finish the workshop in Tucson, AZ, a vibrant town with convenient flight options. From there we will travel into the surrounding desert countryside, we will visit several parks and monuments in the area as well as Desert Photo Tours which has incredible photo blinds which guarantee that you’ll get some wonderful bird photographs.
