Online: Special Guest Series- 30 Secrets to Bird Photography with Scott Bourne

July 31, 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Below the course description (but before registration) will be a short explanation on how the class will run.

An extensive community of people are devoted to watching and photographing birds. Why? They’re spectacular creatures with varied size, coloring, and behavior across countless species. One thing birds share in common: they’re not so easy to photograph–they don’t pose where you want them to and it’s often tricky to get close enough to photograph them. Professional birding photographer and Olympus Visionary, Scott Bourne, will be sharing his secrets for capturing spectacular bird photos in this one hour virtual class.

Special Offer: This event is sponsored by Olympus! By no means do you need to have an Olympus camera to take this class, but Olympus will be offering 10% off any Olympus OM-D, PEN camera body/kit, and any PRO & Premium lens purchased at Hunt’s Photo for 48hrs following the class. Pretty sweet! Attend to enjoy!
