Description

In the heart of the Drôme department, griffon vultures and lammergeiers have been reintroduced and are now easily observable in different places. They are a great subject to learn how to progress in wildlife photography.

This weekend of nature observation and wildlife photography that I propose is an opportunity to learn more about these birds and their behavior, and to practice shooting birds in flight, posed portraits, and group behavior. I will give you my technical and artistic advices and we will analyze together the pictures taken during the day.

This weekend is for beginners or experienced photographers who are passionate about wildlife photography and have a telephoto lens.

If you wish to broaden your photography skills, I also offer a training in macro photography, especially of orchids and butterflies.
