We’ll spend time at several birding hotspots in the area capturing the myriad of bird species that frequent the area, plus other wildlife species that we may encounter.


A few of the birds species we may encounter include Short-eared and Burrowing Owls, Western Meadowlarks, a wide variety of duck species, Pelicans, Red-winged Blackbirds, Sharp-tailed Grouse, Long-billed Curlews, Yellow-headed Blackbirds and many, many other species.


We’ll also visit Giant Springs and First Peoples’ State parks, capture sunrise along the Missouri River and sunset over Square Butte.


All workshops include photo assignments in the field, talks on technique, learning to use your camera functions correctly, and edit-and-critique sessions. We feel that the most effective way to develop skills is by taking the skills we talk about in class and going out in the field and practicing them until you’re comfortable with them. We try and tailor each workshop to fit the needs and desires of the individual participants. We limit the number of participants in each workshop so there is a lot of one on one time with the instructor(s).


Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. All cancellations must be confirmed in writing and due to costs incurred by B Wood Photography in arranging photo workshops and acquiring the proper permits, deposits are non-refundable. A $400.00 nonrefundable deposit is required to hold your space.  Full payment is required 120 days in advance. Cancellations after 120 days will receive a full refund if your spot can be filled from a waiting list or if you can fill your spot.  We encourage all of our workshop participants to invest in trip cancellation insurance.
