Wildlife photography workshop at Kirwin Refuge

Posted Feb 14, 2020 4:40 PM

We are excited to be holding a workshop with local photographer and wildlife biologist, Tony Ifland from the Kirwin National Wildlife Refuge. This will be a workshop open to intermediate photographers who have their own equipment. Space is limited and spots will fill up quickly!

Friday evening Tony will give a short workshop on setting up your Canon or Nikon camera for capturing birds or wildlife in low light outdoor settings. He will also talk about the habits and biology of Prairie Chickens in the Kirwin Wildlife Refuge Area.

Early Saturday morning attendees will be guided to an area on the refuge to shoot images of Prairie Chickens in action. Blinds will be provided. Warm clothing is suggested. This part of the workshop will take up to 3 or 4 hours, so please be prepared for the temperature change and to be still.

Workshop fee of $20 will go toward the dinner and lunch provided by the Phillips County Convention & Visitors Bureau. Payment is due in our office at 205 F St., Phillipsburg, by Mar. 20.

*Equipment needed:

- Camera

- Telephoto lens (optional, but helpful)

- Tripod

- Clothing appropriate for a cold morning and sitting without moving. Dark clothing is better because lighter colors can be seen by the chickens
