Eagles & Songbirds
Instructor: Alan Murphy
Our workshop base is located 223 miles SW of anchorage on Kachemak bay, Alaska. We will be using a charter boat to photograph eagles each day.
We will be sharing some of the Eagle activities with my good friend and great photographer Robert OToole who also be conducting workshops at the same time. We will be partnering up with him and his group for the orentation, breakfasts and time with the Eagles.
After breakfast at our hotel each morning we schedule--depending on tides and weather--either two 2-hour boat trips or one 4 hour boat trip each day of the tour (both times are approximate depending on weather conditions). We do lots of the photography from the boat and plan to spend some time on land to do both perched and flying eagles. Our groups are the only ones that have the proper permits to legally land and photograph on private native lands. You should head home exhausted with the best Bald Eagle images of your life
We will spend two days in Anchor Point (40 minutes from our base) on private property photographing many Boreal species of birds at a feeder. We will be doing setups with dramatic perches for these very tame birds. Species include, Pine Grosbeak, Gray Jay, Boreal and Black-capped Chickadee, Common Redpolls, Woodpeckers and many more.
