Introduction of Snowy Owl Photography Workshop

We promise you will be captivated by their mesmerizing yellow eyes and witness the stealth flight and the subsequent attack on the unsuspecting voles and rodents they feed upon. We will get you close enough so that you can shoot with lenses from a 70-200mm to fill the entire frame upon attack of their target, to as long as a 500mm telephoto to capture the acrobatic turns and wing action while in flight. 

This workshop is designed to give you great opportunities to photograph the owls on properties not accessible to the general public. We will take you to the private access locations far away from the local birders and photographers so that we are not disturbed, and we will assist you and your clients with winter exposure, compensation, metering, focus tracking and more.

Snowy owl photography is one of the most challenging conditions you may face, cold winds, blowing snow with a white subject, but we will make sure you are ready.
