Bosque: Bird Photography Heaven

Join Juan to experience one of the most majestic and amazing wildlife spectacles in North America. We are talking about Bosque del Apache, where you will find over 10,000 sandhill cranes, over 20,000 snow geese and a plethora of other wildlife. Renown for the “Blast offs” of tens of thousands of birds in the morning, Bosque del Apache is one place you MUST experience. Juan will guide you in making the most amazing images you can imagine. If you are a wildlife and/or nature photographer this workshop will inspire you.

Bosque is not only about the cranes and geese, there is lots of other wildlife on the refuge but one of the often overlooked aspects of the refuge is the spectacular landscape. While the cranes and geese are the stars of the show, Juan will provide instruction and shooting opportunities on HDR, Panoramic Photography, Wildlife Photography, Timelapse, Astro Photography and shooting video with your video capable Digital SLR.

Don’t miss this once in a lifetime trip. We are deliberately keeping the group small and the costs affordable so make sure to sign-up as soon as possible.
