Lens Suggestion: Almost any lens including zoom “kit” lenses will be capable of capturing great images at the Raptors In Flight Workshop. I personally have used numerous zooms from 17-40mm to 100-400mm and primes from 300mm to 700mm (500 +1.4 tc). We can get very close to the raptors where you may wish a wide zoom, or stand further away with a large prime to capture close-up flight shots.
In a controlled situation like this workshop, bring what you have, learn to use it in the situation. It is always better to have it with you (or in your car close by) then to not have it and wish you did 🙂
Tripod: If you have one, bring it! With the erratic flight of birds handheld shooting is usually the better option, however, arms and shoulders can get tired after the first hour of holding a body and lens. Better to have it then not, right!
To reserve your spot, please email me below. Include number of people and which session you are interested in.
