Point Pelee: Half-Day Wildlife Photo Tour with Christopher Dodds

Thursday is almost SOLD OUT! We've added two walks on Friday!

(Park admission fees are extra)

Join world renowned Canadian nature photographer, blogger, photo educator, lecturer, Canon Northern Explorer of Light and X-rite Coloratti Christopher Dodds, at Point Pelee National Park in Leamington, Ontario (Canada) for a half day outdoor photo workshop at the most renowned inland location in North America to photograph spring migrants, including colorful warblers, tanagers and orioles. Located in Southern Ontario, Pelee is a small peninsula that juts into Lake Erie, and is first landfall for waves of northbound songbirds crossing the Great Lakes. Birders regularly see more than 100 bird species in a day in the Pelee area, including 25 species of warblers! For bird photographers, Pelee can offer some legendary experiences.

Get hands-on help from Chris to improve your photography and take better pics!

There are no guarantees when photographing migrants at a place like Pelee, but there is a good chance of getting photos of numerous warbler species (i.e. Magnolia, Blackburnian, Black-throated Blue, Black-throated Green, Black-and-White), vireos, scarlet tanager, and more. The most exciting thing about photographing migrants at a place like Pelee, is that you never know what you might get!

This workshop is designed to offer helpful tips & techniques sure to improve your photography efforts with everything from a camera phone, point & shoot camera or professional SLR camera system.
