Texas bird photo trifecta: Pro tips, live presentation, and discounts on our April South Texas workshop and ProShow software

We’ve got all sorts of goodies today for bird photographers. First, I’ve written up some of my favorite “pro” tips for bird photographers in a (makers of ProShow, our favorite slide show software). Photodex also put together a cool video from some of the shots from our previous South Texas bird photo workshops to accompany the blog post.

And tonight (Wednesday, February 3rd) I’ll be speaking (and showing illustrative images, with plenty of tips and tidbits of advice) on South Texas Bird photography at the Bay Area Bird Photographers meeting (7:30pm at the Palo Alto Baylands). It is free and open to all. I hope you can join us! (Meeting info at the end of this article).

This Harris Hawk image from our Rio Grande Valley Photo Safari won the Grand Prize in the 2012 National Wildlife Federation Photo CompetitionFor the avid bird photographer, nowhere in North America is better than the top private ranch photography in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Photographer-friendly blinds sited in a natural environment make for some of the best woodland and desert bird photography anywhere. We're returning for our 8th year, with another top-of-the-line small-group workshop this year. Once again we'll also be hosted right on the ranches, with excellent accommodations, home cooking, a big-screen TV for teaching and looking for images, and an air-conditioned lounge area for relaxing and editing between shooting sessions.
