Bosque Del Apache is the best location we know for Flight School! In an intensive 3 full days of shooting with classroom and real-time in the field feedback, this workshop is designed to help you develop your flight photography skills.  With tens of thousands of Sandhill Cranes, Snow Geese and other wildlife concentrated at the refuge, we will have hundreds of opportunities to develop and hone these skills. As an added bonus, we timed this workshop to coincide with conditions favorable for night sky photography! New Mexico is an ideal place to photograph the Milky Way.

Bosque is known for the concentrations of Snow Geese and Sandhill Cranes that spend the winter there. It is a spectacle to behold and amazing to photograph! For this trip, we will have one hotel that we use as our base. Each morning we will depart early to get in to position for sunrise. After shooting this magical hour, we will work other subjects until the light gets too harsh.

We will then enjoy a late breakfast/early lunch, return to the hotel to download images, hold classroom instruction and provide image review and feedback. We will then head back out for the afternoon session. Each day we will shoot until sunset and then have dinner.

As conditions allow, we will head out at night for Astro Photography. This will be an intensive workshop focused on building and honing your photographic skills.
