These animals are in top physical condition and are placed into scenery representative of environments in which they live in the wild.

Notes from the Instructor for the Wildlife Photography Workshops

My Wildlife Photography Classes and Workshops are limited to 10 participants. This small group size allows for maximum flexibility in obtaining all types of shots including portraits, behavior, close-ups and special requests where possible. You’ll also have the flexibility to easily move to different positions to get the shots you are looking for. You will be able to benefit from my years of experience photographing at Triple D and scouting the various shooting locations. This will help make sure you go home with the best photos possible.

Baby Canadian Lynx clinging to a tree

I was the President of an Internet services company for over 10 years where I developed an extensive history of working with and educating adults. I am currently a contributing editor for Outdoor Photography Canada magazine and a professional nature photographer. Some individuals seem to run workshops in order to subsidize their own photography shoots. But, unlike those workshop leaders, I am exclusively there to help you get the best shots. You won’t need to worry about interrupting my photography to ask a question or get advice. This workshop is more than just a series of photo sessions with the wildlife models. It is a full featured workshop offering a complete educational experience.

The staff members at Triple D are excellent and they’ll work with us to help get you a tremendous series of shots. Jay and Kim Deist, the owners of the Triple D, are extremely generous hosts who provide a terrific service to wildlife photographers.  They and their staff are well-known for their humane and respectful treatment of their animals.

Each participant will receive a copy of my book, Triple D Photography Tips, Tricks and Techniques. Familiarizing yourself with the book in advance of your trip to the Triple D is an excellent way of preparing for your visit. The Triple D Photography Tips, Tricks and Techniques book forms the basis for the educational portion of the workshop.
