I will be presenting a workshop over 2 days with wildlife artist Katherine Cooper at the Raptor Refuge on the weekend of April 18 & 19, 2015. The Raptor Refuge is not open to the public so this is a very unique opportunity to spend an extended period of time here, meeting “Raptor Man” Craig Webb, and discussing and practicing photography and painting with myself and Katherine.
The workshop involves 2 days at the refuge and transport between Hobart and the Refuge is included. Upon arrival, Craig will give a welcome presentation and discuss the aims and objectives of the refuge. You will also be introduced to many of the magnificent raptors in Craig’s care. You will also be treated to gourmet Tasmanian produce with lunch, morning and afternoon tea included.
We will then move onto a photographic session where we will discuss technique and practice shooting. During the afternoon we will break into two groups – those interested in the painting side will work with Katherine while those who are interested in photography will continue with me. There will be time for a post processing session during one of the afternoons. Click here to see the highlights of the previous Raptor Reflections workshop.
