On Sunday August 2, I will be running a raptor photography workshop at the Raptor Refuge in southern Tasmania.
The Raptor Refuge is a working refuge and rehabilitation centre for Tasmania’s magnificent raptors rather than a zoo or wildlife park and is therefore not open to the public on a regular basis.
Support Raptor Conservation Work in Tasmania
Participants in this workshop will not only have a very unique opportunity to photograph these raptors up close, but will be contributing to the conservation work undertaken here with around 50% of the admission fee donated to the refuge. The refuge provides vital conservation work, culminating with injured raptors, such as this White Bellied Sea Eagle, being returned to the wild fighting fit.
Topics to be covered during the day will include:
* Exposure settings
* Focus and metering techniques
* Post processing tips
Written notes on the above will also be provided.
The Raptor Refuge is currently home to many Tasmanian raptors including Wedge Tailed Eagles, Sea Eagle, Boobook Owls, Masked Owls, Peregrine Falcon, Goshawks, Australian Hobby and more. While participants will not be able to enter enclosures, shooting into the enclosure will not be a problem. Craig will have a few birds on display in the purpose-built education centre too.
