Second installment of “Birds Through The Lens” about to be released

04 Apr 2014 / 0 Comments / in blog

Some of you may be aware of the video photo workshop series I am producing with my friend Alan Murphy titled Birds Through The Lens, well I have some exciting news! We are done with the shooting and the rough edit and I am currently putting the finishing touches on the second installment of the series. Our goal is to release this second installment by the end of this month, yes April 2014.

If you are not familiar with the Birds Through The Lens series and like photographing birds you need to check it out. There is no better resource anywhere online or not for photographing birds. I consider Alan to be the best working bird photographer in the world. His workshops sell out incredibly fast, but you can learn most of his techniques through these videos.

We are very excited to share this new installment with you because in it we cover how to prepare your backyard for photographing birds, something that most folks are interested in. This new installment is about 1.5 hours long and cover topics such as:

  • The basics of attracting birds
  • Bird Feeders
  • Seed and Suet
  • How to properly set up perches
  • Perches for woodpeckers
  • Attracting birds with water
  • Creating water features
  • And much more

Shooting birds with Alan Murphy

A few weeks ago I was privileged to head out to southern Texas to shoot alongside my friend Alan Murphy while he was conducting one of his famous bird photography workshops. The reason I was there was to shoot the first installment of a video series that Alan and I are producing on bird photography titled “Birds Through the Lens”. Alan is one of the absolute best bird photographers in the nation as well as an excellent instructor, so if you are into bird photography, this is not a series you want to miss. The video should be released sometime late spring, and I will of course be making an announcement here. If you want to sign up to be notified when the video is released go to the
