Travel Insurance is always recommended.

We are offering one two-day workshop in the San Luis Valley where we will be specifically targeting the Sandhill Crane fall migration.  It is a great time of year to be a photographer.  The cranes stop in the San Luis Valley while traveling back to New Mexico for the winter.  The weather is typically lovely in the 60’s during the day with early mornings being a bit cooler in the 30’s.  The photographic opportunities are virtually endless as we explore not only the many sandhill cranes, but we will also be on the hunt for Great Horned Owls, Bald Eagles, Hawks, and a variety of waterfowl.

We will take a maximum of six participants and will be out for about 4 hours at sunset the first day and the second day we will be out at sunrise for 4 hours, have a mid-day break, then go back out for about 4 hours in the evening.  Cheryl & Jim will be right beside you the entire time offering suggestions on exposure, composition, camera setting, and finding the best locations to photograph. 

Our normal Spring 4-day workshops are $1300, but we are offering this workshop for a much lower rate, the entire workshop is $450.  This is a great opportunity to come make some great photos of the Sandhill Cranes at a discounted rate!
