Beginner and advanced photographers are invited to the Three Rivers Avian Center (TRAC) in Brooks, WV, for the opportunity to photograph birds of prey during the spring and fall. The next Birds of Prey Photography Workshop is on Saturday, October 14, 2017. Professional photographer Steven Wayne Rotsch and TRAC co-directors Ron and Wendy Perrone offer amateur to professional photographers the opportunity to capture images of West Virginia’s birds of prey in natural settings. About 10, usually shy, birds of prey will be modeling in natural settings for the cameras, including Regis - The Bald Eagle, Hoolie - A Great Horned Owl, Gimli - The American Kestrel, Nick and Harlan - Two Red-tailed Hawks, Dori - The Peregrine Falcon and more will be available during both the morning and afternoon sessions. The difference between the morning and afternoon sessions are the natural settings where the birds are photographed. Photographers of all skill levels will also be able to pick up technical tips during one-on-one sessions with the instructor. The focus of the workshop is photographing the birds. At least (50) fifty-percent of the registration fees will benefit TRAC, a 501( c) 3 nonprofit organization. •Participants can sign up for the full-day 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. sessions, which includes lunch for $100, or either the morning session from 9 a.m. to noon or the afternoon session from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. for $50. •Call Steve at 304-541-7574, email Steve at [email protected] or logon to www.stevenrotsch.com for more workshop information and a downloadable registration form.
