Birds in Flight Shooting Experience

Join us for birds in flight and live falconry demonstrations. During this class you will get up close and personal with flying birds, trained and handled by a professional falconer. The class will include flying demonstrations and ample opportunity to photograph the birds flying predictably with beautiful backgrounds.

Concepts Covered

• Basic Bird Photography - Birds on the Wing
• Basic Bird Photography - Perching Birds
• Ideal Bird Photography Camera Setup
• Two hours of private, up close bird photography with flying birds

Required Equipment

Students should have a camera, lens(es), charged battery and empty memory card(s). Since we will be able to be very close to the birds, any lens from portrait length (70mm on Full frame, 50mm on Crop) to telephoto 200mm+ is usable. A 70-200mm, 24-105mm, 55-200mm or similar are great all-around options. Longer telephotos like a 200-500mm will also be helpful for isolating the bird against the background. Longer telephoto lenses will be useful for the flying portion of the photography session.


This is an all levels class. We will cover the basics you need to know to photograph the birds.


 The Woodlands TBD

Schedule and Format

The class will start with a short discussion covering bird photography. We will then spend time with the birds learning about and photographing them up close.
