Winter Birds of Vancouver Photography Workshop

The 2019 Winter Birds of Vancouver Workshop is given by Jess Findlay and Connor Stefanison.

Each winter, the Vancouver area is home to large numbers of raptors and waterfowl. Being one of the only non-frozen places during the Canadian winter, it's no wonder why they like it here so much. This workshop takes place over 5 days and is highly instructional, making sure you come away with great images, and the knowledge of how to make great images by yourself, and be a better bird photographer.
