Workshop Description – Birds are present in our everyday lives, and this is a tribute to them. We look to our cameras to document their behavior or simply their beauty. We will discuss the variety of birds in the Pacific Northwest, and photography tips for capturing the best images possible. Each season brings different species of birds into our yards, neighborhoods, forests and wildlife refuges. Birds migrate through our area along the Pacific Flyway, and we get opportunities to experience their diversity. Wintering birds give us opportunities to visit, observe, and photograph these magnificent creatures.

 Slide presentation with plenty of time for question and answers.

Bio – Karen Ulvestad is breaking into the International photography scene with stock images published in Europe and Asia. Her work is collected by clients in the US. She teaches and speaks at various birding festivals, prominent art schools, and runs independent workshops. Her work is represented by Photographers Direct (Europe), and Alamy stock agencies.
