The drive is in open vehicles designed to maximize the experience for wildlife photography. Lunch at the Overlook Cafe and discussion of the day’s photos by the instructors completes the experience.

Texas photo workshops seem worlds apart

Happy New Year! To start the New Year out right, I will lead a series of nature photography workshops in 2013. While all are in Texas, the subject matter seems worlds apart. They range from an African wildlife photography workshop at
Fossil Rim Wildlife Center and another wild bird photography workshop in far South Texas. Let’s start in order.

RGV Bird WS

The first workshop will be held on February 22-24 on the Laguna Seca Ranch in far south Texas only a few miles from Edinburg and the Mexican border. This ranch is a well established for bird photography with permanent blinds and water features. The timing of this workshop will allow the participants to capture images of south Texas and northern Mexico specialties, as well as migrant species. The details of this most economical workshop are found here: http://www.thenatureconnection.com/SoTxBirdPhotoWS.html .

The next workshops feature Africa in Texas at the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center near Glen Rose, Texas. Four workshops will be featured in April, June, September and October on the 1,900 acre facility. One- and two-day workshops are offered, with the two-day workshop featuring lodging overnight at Safari Camp in the heart of the center’s wildlife preserve.
