Indoor Raptor Portrait Photography Workshop

Photogragh by Nancy Sloan

1:00pm  - 5:00 pm

Howell Nature Center is offering a brand new type of photography workshop.  Portraits of Raptors! You will take a variety of photos indoors from head shots to whole bird.  We will have a total of 6 birds (owls & hawks). Each will be sitting on a perch in front of a solid black or white background.  

We will set up 3 raptors at a time. Photographers will take turns shooting. Next to each raptor will be a handler and a professional portrait photographer. The handler will let you know how close you can get to the bird and the expert photographers will give advice on camera settings to ensure that you get outstanding photographs that you would love to grace your walls. Our expert portrait photographers are Bob Ratcliff and Maurice Sander, who have won a variety of awards for their wonderful photographs. 

We will have a deluxe sandwich, cheese and fruit bar for your enjoyment. 

Please join us for the low price of $80.00, which benefits both our Wild Wonders animals and the Wildlife Clinic. Last year, we helped over 4,000 injured and orphaned wild animals.
