Wild Wings in Action Photography Workshop – Ann Arbor

Leslie Science & Nature Center (LSNC) is proud to present a special class for local photographers and bird lovers, Wild Wings in Action Photography Workshop, on-site at LSNC, 1831 Traver Rd, Ann Arbor, MI, 48105, on Sunday, May 4 from 8:00-10:00 a.m.

LSNC invites all who are age sixteen and older interested in photography and in nature to increase their ability to take action shots while practicing photographing two of our resident non-releasable birds of prey – a Red-tailed Hawk and Bald Eagle – in flight. Please contact us about potential attendees under the age of sixteen. Additional native raptors will be perched in natural settings for a chance to practice animal portraiture. LSNC’s Eastern Screech Owls, Peregrine Falcon, American Kestrel, Turkey Vulture, Barred Owl, and the Broad-winged Hawk can all be expected to make an appearance. This workshop will be led by professional photographer Lon Horwedel.

Lon Horwedel has worked locally for the Ann Arbor News and teaches photography at Washtenaw Community College. An expert at action shot photography, Horwedel is often found on the sidelines taking photos at professional and college sports games. In 2011 Horwedel chronicled the flight training of LSNC’s first Bald Eagle. His photographic essay, Flight School, was published in the July–August 2011 edition of local magazine The Ann.
