Dick Handshaw is currently a member of the Carolina Raptor Center Board of Directors. He spent 31 years of his career as a learning and performance consultant as President of his own company, Handshaw, Inc. Before that he earned his living as a professional photographer for ten years. Now he is combining those two experiences to help the CRC become a learning resource for wildlife and bird photographers.
This weekend photography experience is only offered twice a year by the Carolina Raptor Center. In addition to expert instruction, you will have an opportunity to photograph the stars of the Raptor Center collection both for portraits and in flight. The second day will include a nature walk lead by Joe Amodeo from the Carolina Raptor Center.
This class is not intended for people new to digital photography. You should be familiar with most of the essential controls on your camera. Bring your gear to class. We will be practicing on our own birds. A tripod and at least a 300mm lens or equivalents are highly recommended.
Light refreshments will be served. Please plan to bring your own lunch both days.
