Flight School Photography Workshops & Tours
Images copyright  2012:  Jim Neiger/Flight School Photography

I have spent the last several years developing techniques for using large telephoto lenses hand held to photograph birds, particularly birds in flight.  In November of 2006, I began sharing my techniques with others via my Flight School Photography workshops.  Many of my students have applied the techniques they learned during my workshops to create amazing images of birds in flight.  Success using hand held techniques isn't a matter of strength, it's a matter of using the proper techniques and developing the required skills.  If you are fit enough to comfortably hold your gear in shooting position for 20 seconds or more, than I can teach you how to photograph birds in flight. 


I provide two types of photography workshops and photography tours (listed below).  


Small Group Workshops

Small Group Workshops are scheduled in advance and have a fixed itinerary and featured subjects.  They are provided to small groups of individuals, and the number of participants is limited.  Small Group Workshops include both classroom instruction and informal instruction in the field.  The groups are kept small so that everyone gets lots of personal attention and instruction in the field.  Upcoming Small Group Workshops are listed below.
 

Custom Anytime Workshops

Custom Anytime Workshops may be scheduled any time that I am available.  Each workshop is tailored to the goals of the  participant(s).  Participants define what they want to learn and what subjects they want to photograph. The Custom Private Workshops take place in Central Florida via land, via boat, or both, or I can travel to a location of your choosing.
 

Please follow the links below to learn more about the workshops I provide.  If you have any questions about my workshops, please don't hesitate to contact me.
