Wildlife Photography – From old to Z!

Exploring our wild heritage with a camera is one of the greatest pursuits! It can also be one of the greatest challenges because of so many factors, the biggest one is our subject does whatever they want to! Then there are those little things like exposure, lenses, bodies and flash we need to point at that subject. There are many great “old” techniques that when incorporated with today’s new tools can solve most of your challenges making your photography successful. Come join me as I cover the biology, old and new techniques and gear and help you take your visual storytelling to a new level.

 

About Moose Peterson

Moose’s lifelong passion is photographing the life history of our endangered wildlife and wild places. Since 1981 he and his wife Sharon have dedicated their lives to this pursuit. Educating the public about our wild heritage is their hallmark. Moose added to this in 2008 aviation photography with the same goal of preserving our aviation heritage and the freedoms they protect, pictorial and oral for future generations. Along the way Moose has been honored for his photographic passion: a Nikon Ambassador USA, recipient of the John Muir Conservation Award, Research Associate with the Endangered Species Recovery Program, just to name a few. He was part of Epson’s Finish Strong ad campaign. Moose was the creative producer/photographer of his acclaimed film: Warbirds and The Men Who Flew Them. He shares his knowledge through his writing, being published in over 143 magazines worldwide, author of 29 books including his latest, Takeoff and best seller Captured. He lectures across the country to thousands upon thousands of photographers every year. One of the original Nikon shooters to receive the D1 in 1999, Moose embraced this new technology, becoming the only wildlife photographer in the world to shoot strictly digital in the early years. While a beta site for all the major hardware and software manufacturers, Moose continues being a creative innovator of new techniques both behind the camera and the computer, which is the driving force behind his photography and goals.

I love greeting the day by seeing the sun rise and then bringing that experience back to others. We’re going to do just that! Using long and short lenses, filters and exposure, we’ll take our experience and bring it back to those sleepy heads who missed the start of a great day. This will be your opportunity to experiment and ask questions with a common event you can go back to over and over again with new ideas and techniques to improve your photography.
